Here's my opinion:
It's not me or my brother, friend, auntie, father, who is being imprisoned, beaten, shocked, tortured, killed.
It's not me or my brother, friend, auntie, father, who has to navigate the poison-tipped barbs of living in China-occupied Tibet, or the ever-shifting maze of living in Incredible India.
It's not me or my brother, friend, auntie, father, who has to find ways to fight these things, or ways to express my self in the face of this trauma, or ways to live my life.
it is not me who has grown up in a completely different world and culture from the west, with completely different background, genes, mindset.
It's not me that has to live within the trauma of what is happening in Tibet to me and to mine: every single day.
If a Tibetan decides to live in India,
set fire to themself,
go to west,
or to return to Tibet,
or go into
or to join a
or to produce a
or just have a job and family ...
it is none of my damn business,
and i have no right to say one word about it.
