Friends of Tibet's 'Vision Wellbeing' Launch

On the auspicious occasion of the 82nd birthday of Tibetan spiritual leader, HH the XIV Dalai Lama on July 6, 2017, celebrated worldwide as World Tibet Day, Tushar Gandhi, Great-grandson of Mahatma Gandhi will launch Friends of Tibet's 'Vision Wellbeing' in Mumbai. 'Vision Wellbeing', the 18-minute long film by C-Wing, a Mumbai-based design firm in solidarity with Tibet and Tibetan people was produced using selected images from various activities of Friends of Tibet and the philanthropic work carried out by Friends of Tibet Foundation for the Wellbeing since 1999.

World Tibet Day (WTD) was initiated in Chicago in 1997 at an informal meeting between Tendzin Choegyal, the Dalai Lama’s younger brother and Richard Rosenkranz, a Pulitzer Prize nominee in history and a former correspondent from the US Senate. Rosenkranz proposed the concept of WTD, saying it could become an annual worldwide event, aimed at helping the Tibetan people regain essential freedoms. Believing in the potential of the proposed event great promise, they offered the idea to His Holiness, who unanimously gave them his blessing and warm support. Founded in 1998, World Tibet Day has grown into one of the most important events on the Tibetan calendar. 

Sethu Das, Director, World Tibet Day Foundation, says “one positive action each of us can take on World Tibet Day, no matter which country we live in, is to urge our government and our elected representatives, to approach the Chinese Government on behalf of the Tibetan people in order to restore its lost religious, social and political freedom. One of our goals with World Tibet Day is to put pressure on decision makers in China to agree to negotiations with the Tibetan government in exile in India without any preconditions.” 

Friends of Tibet, one of the principal organisers of ‘World Tibet Day’ worldwide, expects more than 40 countries to join the event with various events and related activities in July this year.
