A photo trip to Tibet

PressTrust of India, March 20, 2005

New Delhi, India -- A tired old woman in tatters with hands folded and head bowed in prayer with a placard ?China quit Tibet? and a child waiting with flowers in its hands for the Buddha - images that reflect the perseverance and resilience of an exiled community.

These and other moving pictures were among the 230 rare photographs depicting the Tibetan socio-cultural life in exile and its impact on the Buddhist communities, on display in the Capital.

A glimpse through the 200 enlargements and about 30 blowups shot by journalist-photographer and Tibetologist Vijay Kranti serves as an eye opener to how the Tibetan refugees, just about one lakh in India, have revived their identity despite a desperate situation .

??India today has become the world?s largest reservoir of authentic Tibetan culture. This achievement is really outstanding?, Kranti said.
