Karma, a Tibetan filmmaker from New York, comes to Dharamsala
— a small town in the foothills of the Indian Himalayas,
home to the exiled Dalai Lama and the spiritual and political
focus of the Tibetan diaspora — to make a film about former
political prisoners who have escaped from Tibet. Their harrowing
stories of courage and suffering heighten her own sense of cultural
alienation. One of Karma’s interviewees is Dhondup, an enigmatic
ex-monk who had recently escaped after spending four years in
prison for his role in anti-Chinese activities. Dhondup confides
in Karma that his real reason for coming to India is to fulfill
his dying mother’s last wish, to deliver a gahu —
a charm box that Tibetans use as a protection amulet — to
a man named Loga. He appeals to her for help in finding him. As
they set out to find Loga, Karma finds herself unwittingly falling
in love with Dhondup even as she is sucked into the vortex of
his quest, which becomes a journey into Tibet’s fractured
past and a voyage of self-discovery.

submit events to Migyul...
An event that takes place
can be of any types. It could be a fundraising party,
a special celebration, religious gathering, educational
forums, public meeting, tournaments, cultural show,
For an event to take place it becomes very important
that the public is notified of these events. It also
becomes important to inform the ones that have not attended
the event of what has taken place. This is after all
what a community event is all about. Events that take
place within the community are probably one of the top
priorities for all our community organizations. Migyul
understands this but owing to lack of resources, information
and prior notification we seem to miss a few important
events that have taken place.
On behalf of Migyul, I urge all the community people
to respond and send their forthcoming and past events
to us in advance. This not only helps people to know
what is in store for them in the coming months but also
helps the organizers to reach out to the community.
Free is the word here and we are after all
a free magazine trying to reach out to the people within
