New Delhi, India, 1 April 2009 (By Namgyal Kunga, phayul.com) - His Holiness the Dalai lama visited various religious sites here in the Indian capital and prayed with members from other religious faiths yesterday on the 50th anniversary of his setting foot on the Indian soil which was commemorated by the exile Tibetan government as "thank you India day".
The Tibetan leader spoke at a press conference attended by reporters from various national and international media. He asked the media persons to visit the restive Himalayan region themselves to find out the real situation. He said if unbiased reporting found Tibetans in Tibet to be truly happy under Chinese rule he would abandon his quest for greater autonomy. "If you really see that things are good, we will drop our struggle."
