Denying the Tibetan people to have their children learn their own language in school translates into despair. Humans are defined through their use of language. Language is the keeper of culture memory as well as the tool to express individual, social and political identity. To deny a people to master their own language means to eradicate their true existence.This is especially true when their identity is based on an ancient religious narrative and practice. Linguistic concepts are corresponding to unique cultural concepts. Erasing the Tibetan language from the official education of Tibetan Children is a conscious act of aggression against the Tibetan people. I support the Dalai Lama’s appeal to grant Tibetans cultural autonomy within the one state solution.
