Day 18 – 1 March 2021

How do you walk into a crowd of strangers and start distributing a wad of pamphlets risking rejection, humiliation, or even bullying by a rare drunkard ignoramus on the way?

Today we walked 25 km and reached Kurukshetra, the legendary battlefield from the Hindu epic Mahabharata.

Chimey and I walked the entire stretch while our new logistics team Tenzin Leckphel and Sonam Tobgyal drove ahead and found a night shelter at a roadside shelter at a dhaba.

Supporters of this campaign have been collecting signatures in different places.

This march from Dharamshala to Delhi, 12 February to 10 March 2021, aims to highlight Tibet as the missing link between India and China. I am appealing to the government of India to #RepealOneChinaPolicy
