3 july 2012 002Dharamshala: Since October 2011, one of Tibetan's former political prisoners Dolma Kyi who organizes Miss Tibet, has been honouring a few distinguished women of Tibetan Nationality for their work and their representation of Tibetan culture. Amidst those who have been nominated for this award are: Famous writer Tsering Woeser, Dolma Gyari- the minister of Home, Jetsun Pema- His Holiness, the Dalai Lama's sister and Panchen Lama's daughter Rigzin Wangmo.

Finally Rigzin Wangmo was awarded recently with a special set of ritualistic costume, a golden Sholong, and token certificate of honour for her strong and distinctive representation of Tibetans in exile. The award is called Gordon of the three Regions of Tibet, Sholong Award. Other prolific women personalities were not awarded in this manner as Dolma Kyi felt that they will encounter political problems due to this recognition.

This is the first honour of its kind, that recognizes the work done by distinguished women who are Tibetans. However, the Chinese Government s was of the opinion that this honour can only be bestowed upon by an organization, not an individual. Hence, the Golok Women's Association were the official hosts of this tribute as Dolma Kyi in effect has no right to confer it.

Even so, with all legalities and formalities in place the Chinese government expressed political contention with this honour and fined Dolma Kyi a sum of 30,000 Yuan and have henceforth declared that the honour will be discontinued.

This award ceremony also has a music compilation with songs about its inception, recipients and struggles.
