Retirees’ day out in NORBU HOUSE

Norbu House in Dharamshala is rated number one in the travelogue and is highly recommended for comfortable stay while you are in Dharamshala. Being in the peak of the season, it is always full and does excellent business. Besides being so busy and over occupied attending to important customers Mr. Wangdu Tsewang took the time out to invite all our retired staff around Dharamshala for a very special luncheon. He is one of our former students and sponsors several children in the Village as well as two students from DLIHE for college education. His hotel, restaurant and conference hall are epic centre of Dharamshala hub for several public events. The latest being the press conference by ex-representative of His Holiness – USA Mr. Penpa Tsering.

We were about sixty such retired staff around Dharamshala mostly from our retired staff quarter in TCV. It was for the first time that many of our retired staff were ushered to the main lobby of Norbu House overlooking a panoramic view of Dharamshala. Mr. Wangdue was particularly very concerned and took good care of all our oldies making sure that everyone had a very comfortable table and shortly tea, snacks, soup were served in succession and finally we had a very well prepared cuisine to the delight of all our retired staff.


He says this is just a very symbolic gesture of his expression of gratitude for the services rendered for his upbringing and education by TCV. He plans to make this an annual feature on the encouragement of several notes, likes and comments he received from several ex-students across the globe on his facebook. Those of us who attended his invitation for the luncheon truly felt honoured and close to our hearts. Our bondage in the TCV family is based on true feeling of love and care.

On behalf of TCV we are very happy to present him a traditional scarf and a small souvenir as a token of our appreciation. The souvenir was presented by one of the most senior and revered Gen Tenzin La who saw TCV grow from a small Nursery to one of the largest educational and social organizations in exile. He took pivotal role in the metamorphosis of children growing from young tiny toddlers to responsible and contributing entrepreneurs like Wangdu.
