Modern medicine may be struggling to find a
painless cure for arthritis but Sonam Topgyal,
chairman of the Tibetan Chamber of Commerce will
vouch for the authenticity of his traditional
Tibetan medicine. “The medicines are completely
natural, made with different Himalayan herbs.
Since they are free of chemical substances, there
are no side effects either,” says Topgyal,
pointing to the jar of ‘Sengen 25’ capsules on
the shelf at the first-ever Tibetan market fair,
called Little-Tibet, at DLF Place mall, Saket.
There are medicines for other ailments, including
rheumatism, diabetes, nervous system disorders.

The three-day fair, which ends today, is well
stocked with all kinds of traditional items
ranging from handicrafts, books, jewellery,
carpets, rugs, home decor items and organic food.
“We have brought over 25 traders of various
Tibetan goods to expose them to the huge
clientele pool in Delhi. Making people aware
about the potential of their business plays an
important part in its success. A product does not
sell if it fails to attract the people’s
attention,” adds Topgyal. To add to the
excitement, there are several cultural
programmes, including a Tibetan nomadic dance
performance and a Tibetan fashion show for kids.
