Home in Exile

India is my second home. I fled Tibet because the Chinese government created so many problems there. Tibetans have been seeking refuge in India for 48 years. It is hard to live here because we are not granted legitimate refugee status. However, since I came to India my life has improved in many ways. Here I am offered a free uncensored education and I frequently can see His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It is hard to find work but I would like to stay here because I can learn so much and I am truly inspired by His Holiness. We have many hardships but I can say I am happy here.
