My one-woman march for Tibet, in solidarity with Tenzin Tsundue

A writer with a cause, Tenzin Tsundue, my friend and co-author at “World’s Pandemic Chronicles” is on a 500 kilometers march on foot from Dharamshala to Delhi to raise awareness of the occupation of his country, Tibet. He reminds me of Haruki Murakami who used to run for miles between his writing sessions. However, Tenzin is marching for a cause and you can help him by signing the petition below (Just sign it. Tenzin is NOT looking for donation):

Petition Support Tenzin Tsundue asking PM Modi to repeal ‘One China Policy’ acknowledgement by India & Walk a Mile for #Tibet! (ipetitions.com)

This is my one-woman march in Bucharest, Romania, in solidarity with Tenzin Tsundue. I walked for only six or seven kilometers and wore the Tibetan flag on my mask. Here, in Romania, I couldn’t find a Tibetan flag, which made me think that I should bring a few.

Losar Tashi Delek 2021

The Tibetan New Year, called (Feast of) Losar, is celebrated this year on February 12, 2021. We then enter the 2148th year of the Tibetan calendar, which is the year under the sign of the Metal Ox.

The holiday begins on the twenty-ninth day of the twelfth Tibetan month (February 10, 2021), Tibetans – after thoroughly cleaning their homes take the “Soup of the 29th day” called Gouthouk.

This soup is made from dumplings of wheat flour, meat and radish. In this soup, some balls will be stuffed with symbols such as: a white pebble, wool or charcoal, etc.

What is the symbolism of these inedible ingredients?

The white pebble reflects a pure thought, therefore positive and to be kept for the new year.

Wool is a slow and soft material, but anything that is sluggish we must avoid for this new year, however, the softness, of course, we must preserve.

Charcoal means our thinking is black, therefore negative, and we have to reject this facet for the new year.

The Tibetan writer and activist Tenzin Tsundue chose February 12, the Tibetan New Year Losar to start a one-man march, 500 kilometers walk from Dharamshala to Delhi, which will conclude on March 10, the Tibetan National Uprising Day. Tenzin will lead a global campaign, petitioning different head of states to repeal their One-China policy and recognize Tibet, East Turkestan and Southern Mongolia as occupied countries, as well as support Hong Kong struggle for democracy and the independence of Taiwan.

Pankaj Mishra described Tenzin in The New York Times as ‘the new and the most visible face’ of the ‘restless children of the Dalai Lama.’ He has been fighting and protesting against the unjust occupation of Tibet for decades.

We wish him a successful journey and praise him for the effort of never giving up the fight for a free Tibet.
