When was the last time when you were thirsty and begged for water? Today during the walk between Kurukshetra and Karnal there was a stretch of road where there was nothing, just an unending highway roaring past in the middle road while the flanged roads were empty, dry, and hot. There was no shop, tea stall, or juice walla.
Four volunteers from Regional Tibetan Youth Congress, RTYC Puruwala, Himachal Pradesh joined us today. They walked with us the whole day and helped to distribute pamphlets.
Also, came along Kunchok Yangphel, my friend and Tibetan MP who drove all the way from Delhi, marched with us, and sponsored our dinner and room rents for tonight.
Today we walked 31kms (second-longest stretch so far) from Kurukshetra to Karnal passing through Nilokheri, Taraori, and Jhanjari. Karnal is the usual dinner stop for Delhi to Dharamshala buses. Roadside eateries and dhabas look familiar.
People often ask us if we were going to the Singhu border to join the farmers’ protest. We surprise them with the other flag (Tibetan National flag) and say “Tibbat ki Azadi, Bharat ki Suraksha” (Tibet’s independence, India’s security).
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
Help me spread the word. Share, forward and tweet: #RepealOneChinaPolicy #WalkaMileForTibet
