BOOKSChinese Writers on Tibet’s Quest For Justice[Friday, 13 Friday 2010, 3:55 p.m.]

Three Chinese writers
based in North America and Canada have written books on the Tibetan
people’s struggle for truth and justice, pledging to use the might of
the pen to continuously highlight the just cause of Tibet. The books written in Chinese language by Chen Po Kong, Li Jiang Lin and Zhu Rui were published in Hong Kong and Taiwan.US-based
Li Jiang Lin’s book “Lhasa in 1959: Why the Dalai Lama came into
exile?” was recently published in Hong Kong.  The special features of
Ms Li’s book are her interviews with many Tibetans who had experienced
the events of 1959 in Lhasa and her conversation with His Holiness the
Dalai Lama. The book details Ms Li’s research on events that occurred
between 1956 to 1959, to show how the Chinese government described the
event and what is the reality. For this she had interviewed a large
number of Tibetans by visiting many Tibetan communities, including
those in Kalimpong, Darjeeling and Gangtok. According to media reports,
the book received wide publicity in the press and provoked the interest
of many readers.In her book titled “A Chinese Perspective on
Tibet”, Canada-based Ms Zhu Rui has written about the mutually
beneficial Middle-Way Approach for Tibet and China proposed by His
Holiness the Dalai Lama and approved by the majority of Tibetans. The
book also talks about how His Holiness made efforts to introduce
democracy in the exile Tibetan community. The author says her literary
work tells how she as a Chinese view the successful preservation of
Tibet’s cultural heritage by exile Tibetans under the leadership of His
Holiness the Dalai Lama. She says her book, published in Taiwan, has
attracted interest from many Chinese readers. Mr Chen Po Kong,
who is residing in North America, has written 6 chapters on Tibet in
his book “Thick and Black in Zhongnanhai”, which narrates the
intricacies of internal power struggle between Chinese leaders. It was
published in Hong Kong. He told the Office of Tibet in New York that
his books had made good selling in Hong Kong as copies from the first
edition sold off and that he has asked for reprinting.With good
knowledge about the issue of Tibet, their numerous articles on Tibet
are highly admired among many Chinese authors. They have attended many
conferences on Tibet, such as the meeting of Common Ground, a
Sino-Tibetan dialogue conference held in Geneva last year. They also
had opportunities to meet His Holiness the Dalai Lama on many occasions.“The
opportunity and freedom to visit Tibetan communities to study their
issue and to speak with His Holiness the Dalai Lama has immensely
helped in writing the books,” the writers said. They further said: 
“Since the struggle of Tibet is a quest for truth and justice, we will
continue to write about the issue of Tibet based on facts. As writers,
we have a moral responsibility to raise the issue of Tibet whenever
there is opportunity to do so.”
