9 july 2012 001Ladakh: Kalon Tripa Dr Lobsang Sangay arrived in Ladakh on Sunday to a warm reception by the Superintendent of Police, the chief representative officer, the President of the Ladakh Buddhist Association, the speaker of the local Tibetan Assembly as well as by the heads of various other organisations.

Sonamling Tibetan settlement is a scattered settlement of Tibetan refugees but the Tibetan community came out in strong numbers, garbed in their traditional Tibetan attires, holding ceremonial scarves and the Tibetan national flag to greet Dr Lobsang Sangay, Kalon Tripa of the Central Tibetan Administration.

Upon his arrival, the chief representative officer of the settlement gave the Kalon Tripa a brief tour of the settlement, the different offices and the local health clinic, and introduced the group leaders of the 12 camps and the leaders of other governmental and non-governmental organisations.

The Kalon Tripa met with the local Tibetan community in the afternoon. In his address to the public, he said he feels lucky to be visiting Ladakh for the third time now and expressed his desire to meet with the nomads and the people of the Jangthang areas this time.

He also spoke about the three visions of the 14th Kashag, Unity, Innovation and Self-Reliance, followed by a brief question and answer session.
After that, he left to Leh to meet the members of the Ladakh Buddhist Association and other dignitaries from the Ladakhi community. They discussed the close cultural affinity of the two communities and promised to work together in every endeavour.

Tomorrow, Kalon Tripa Dr Lobsang Sangay will visit the TCV school and address the students there.
