Rediff has an article titled "Thanks to India the dream of free Tibet resuscitated" - which is a quote from online questions posed to and answered by Tenzin Tsundue - the Tibetan activist. Curiously, the Economist carries an article with the headline "Hu's afraid of the Dalai Lama" which essentially maintains that India has softened it's stance on Tibet in order to ensure better business links with China. The Economist, after praising India's long standing support of Tibet, says "... So it is sad to see India follow the West in helping China by making even the limited political space available to Tibetan exiles even smaller". Needless to say, both articles are illuminating.

ps Happy birthday aporup.
