57th Tibetan National Uprising Day – 10th-March-2016
The 57th Tibetan National Uprising Day was organized in the main temple to commemorate the brutal and illegal occupation of Tibet by the Communist China. This was the day to remember the fateful day in 1959 when Tibetans- young and old, monks and nuns formed a chain of human shield to stop the Chinese from entering Norbu Lingka to abduct His Holiness on the pretext of inviting His Holiness for a cultural show without security personnel.
The official function was organized on the main temple. TCV band occupied the center stage to welcome the Sikhong and Speaker along with the entire civil service officials and public in Dharamshala. Class IX and above attended the function and provided band and led the choir for the prayer of truth. The official function concluded with the speeches delivered by the Speaker and Sikhong.
The memorable part of the commemoration of the day was the protest march from Tsug-lag-khang to Kachari shouting slogans and attended the function on the main square near DC office. The protest march and function was organized by five non-governmental organizations.
After a very satisfying participation and protest March students and staff were provided a relishing lunch at Gandhi park.
