Day 5 – 16 February 2021

Arrived in Amb. Today I walked 23 kms. Met a Punjab Kesari journalist who wrote a report about the march. Help me get more media attention.

Much of the road stretch today routed through the pine woods, eucalyptus and mangoes. This is the last bit of the hills descending which the road suddenly broadens and roars into a national highway with large trucks and buses chasing each other. From here the vocabulary, tone and palate become distinctly Punjabi. In the forest I have started to hear peacocks calling and seen swallows over rivers.

Today, my friend and Tibetan MP Dorjee Tseten came to meet me on the march along with Tehor Wangdue Dorjee who is a social worker and a Tibetan entrepreneur. Dorjee la gifted tsampa products that his cottage factory produces. They both made live posts about the march and interviewed me both in Tibetan and Hindi. They walked with me for a mile and gave lunch to the march team.

In the afternoon as scheduled yesterday I spoke live on facebook which attracted a large audience. I spoke in Tibetan, Hindi and English about the march and spoke on how people could participate in the campaign

I request all my friends to support the march by signing the petition at ipetitions.com asking the government of India to repeal One-China Policy, at ipetitions.com/petition/support-tenzin-tsundue-stand-up-for-tibet
