  • Description

    SYNOPSIS: The Dalai Lama was filmed with his Mother May 19 on the lawns of Birla House, his Indian home in exile at Mussourie. They were later joined by his 13 year old brother.

    To encounter Chinese criticisms, the Indian Government will send propaganda brooklets to Tibet, illustrated with photographs of the Dalai Lama to show that he is not, as the Chinese claim, a prisoner of India. The booklets will be made available at the Indian Consulate in Lhasa.

    Tibetan's hunger for information about the Dalai Lama was illustrated recently when 500 women brushed aside an armed Chinese guard and entered the Indian Consulate in Lhasa. They demanded to see photographs proving his safety.

    It is estimated that more than 12,200 Tibetans have now crossed into India and safety.
