Dharamshala -- Photographic narrative of the Tibetan people's journey
into exile and their long look towards their homeland will be put on
display during the forthcoming travelling exhibitions in different
parts of South India.

The event is a part of the 50 years of Tibetans in exile programme to
be organised by the Tibet Museum of the Department of Information and
International Relations, Mr Tashi Phuntsok, officer in charge of the
travelling exhibition, told TibetNet. Two staff from the Tibet
Museum, Mr Tenzin Rabga and Mr Penpa Tsering, will accompany the
officer in charge.

The exhibition will kickoff at India's IT capital Bangalore on 25 August.

It will then move on to Hunsur Rabgyaling Settlement on 28-29 August;
Bylakuppee Sera Lachikhang on 31 August - 2 September; Mysore on 5
September; Kollegal Dhondenling Settlement on 8 - 9 September; Goa on
13-14 September and Mundgod Doeguling Settlement on 17 - 19 September.

A total of 60 panels will be exhibited, of which 35 panels portray
Tibetan life in exile for the last 50 years, and 25 panels depict the
past and present situation inside Tibet.

In the evening, Tibet related documentary films will be screened at
the respective venues.

The exhibition is a gesture of the Tibetan people's gratitude to the
government and people of India for their generous support for the
last 50 years. It also aims to mark the achievements of Tibetans in
exile under His Holiness the Dalai Lama's leadership in building
sustainable establishments such as settlements, schools, hospitals
and monasteries, said Mr Tashi Phuntsok.

Another important objective of the exhibition is to create awareness
among Tibetans as well as Indian communities about issues related to
Tibet and its people, he added.
