Reaching Delhi bypass tomorrow at 3 pm and arriving in Samyeling Majnukatilla Tibetan camp at 5 pm.
Still, on the road, the chaiwala asked: Kahan se aa rahe ho? (Where are you coming from?)
Himachal se, I said.
No. Tibetan hun. Dalai Lama admi hai hum (we are Dalai Lama’s people.)
Dalai Lama Pata hai? (Do you know?) Chinese ho? (You guys Chinese?)
China hamara Dushman hai. China hamara desh kabza kiya, ab India ko dabao dal rahein hain (China is our enemy. China occupied our country, now China is putting pressure on India).
Finally, the chaiwala announced, China tö hamara bhi dushman hai. (China is our enemy also).
Even though most Indians do not know Tibet, what I have learned in this journey through Himachal, Punjab, Chandigarh, Haryana, and Delhi is that Indians have replaced Pakistan with CHINA as enemy No. 1. So we declared #TibbatKiAzaadiBharatKiSuraksha #BoycottChineseGoods
And this the Govt must know. It will never be business as usual with China.
Today we walked from the Singhu border to the Delhi bypass. Major road re-construction is going, roads are dusty and the traffic jostle for an inch in the narrow flank stretches.
Solidarity marches, social network posts, signature campaigns still going on in Dharamshala and Paonta Sahib.
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
