27 september 2011 003Delhi: Students for a Free Tibet- India successfully concluded a month long Chapter visit from 21stAugust to 25th September 2011 in eleven major Indian cities. The main objective of the visit is to strengthen SFT chapters in all the major Indian cities and to recruit new active members and Tibet supporters among the Indian youth and students.

Under this chapter visit, SFT-India carried out screening of the Tibetan documentary 'Leaving Fear Behind' made by Dhondup Wangchen, which reflects the true feeling of Tibetan people inside Tibet and the importance of Tibet's issue.

The screening and discussion were held in more than 25 Indian colleges and schools all over India including elite Indian institutes such as Delhi University, Madras University, M. S. University-Gujarat, Tata Institute of Social Science-Mumbai, National Institute of Design-Ahemdabad, Film and Television Institute of India-Pune, National Law School-Calcutta, Symbiosis college-Pune and Madras Christian College etc.

SFT-India, National Director Mr. Dorjee Tseten and Grassroot Coordinator Miss Tenzin Dolkar undertook this chapter visit. "We are really inspired by the growing number of support and interest on Tibet among the younger generation of Indians. With the growing infiltrations by the Chinese military along the Indo-Tibet border, more and more Indians are expressing concern on Tibet's issue and also calling for Tibet's Independence," said Dorjee Tseten, National Director of Students for a Free Tibet-India, "They also strongly object the ongoing dam projects on Tibet's Rivers and the diversion of river Tsangpo in Tibet, also known as Brahmaputra when flowed in India."

The discussions and screenings were organized by SFT chapters and college staffs in various departments and faculties namely Political Science, International Relation, Mass Communication and Legal studies etc. "I was always told that India and Tibet share long history of cultural and tradition. This visit made me further understand this bond the two nations have shared for centuries," said Tenzin Dolkar, Grassroot Coordinator of Students for a Free Tibet-India, "I have strong faith that people of India will continue their support till Tibet's issue is resolved."

SFT-India succeeded in recruiting many new members from Udaipur, Rajkot and Madras for setting new chapters in the respective cities. The chapter visit successfully covered Chandigarh, Delhi, Udaipur, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Baroda, Pune, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Kolkata and reach out to more than 2800 Indian students and young activists across the country.
