7 july 2012 002Dharamshala, 6th July, 2012: On the occasion of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama’s 77th birthday, the Tibetan Women Association (TWA) paid a tribute to His Holiness by hosting various events.

One of which was the distribution of 750 saplings to be planted across Dharamsala, to
the general public, in conjunction with His Holiness The Dalai lama’s consistent efforts towards propagating an environmental-friendly outlook.

The TWA stressed on working towards reducing the CO2 levels in the city resulting from the influx of tourist vehicles in Dharamsala, that doubles every year. The saplings were distributed by TWA members and staff at the Main Cathedral/temple, Tsuglakhang,Mcleod Ganj.

The TWA also arranged a lunch for all 18 patients at the Palampur Leprosy Home and Hospital. The event was organized as a token of love and thanks, especially for the medical aid provided for the Tibetan patients at the hospital, (9 out of 18 patients are Tibetan)

Furthermore, the TWA also circulated sweets to the Indian offices in Dharamsala, such as Banks, Post Offices, V.I.P and public offices; in accordance with the Indian tradition of ‘gifting sweets’ on special occasions. This step was undertaken to strengthen and acknowledge the brotherhood between the Indian and Tibetan communities in the area.
