    MOBI ñ DOC The Noodle Maker of Kalimpong Hardcover ã GYALO THONDUP The Noodle Maker of KalimpongMost Americans think of Tibet as a sort of magical place wonderfully different from the world we know This memoir by the Dalai Lama's older brother takes the magic out Tibet was a country with huge ineualities of wealth and much intrigue and corruption These problems carried into the exile community Mr Thondup's co writer Anne F Thurston in her preface and afterword brings information that you rarely encounter in a memoir She readily recognizes that some of Thondup's statements are contradicted by other participants who have written about the same topics This insight was very useful for a person like me who is not already knowledgeable about Tibet and the Tibetan Exile Community This book will not be the final word on modern history of Tibet but it is a useful piece written by someone who was on the i

    MOBI ñ DOC The Noodle Maker of Kalimpong Hardcover ã GYALO THONDUP The Noodle Maker of KalimpongA personal account of Gyalo Thondup's life and Tibet's story told with the help of Anne F Thurston There are many scares and painful memories in this narrative But Gyalo Thondup has graciously described his early years in Kham his brother's enthroning as Dalai Lama the Chinese occupation and years of resistance movement CIA's support has been widely discussed in many other books but Gyalo Thondup tries to shed light on how the americans had half heartedly supported the movement so as a cold war tactic and not out of genuine concern The book has shorter sentences I am assuming that Thurston has reconstructed the book from various interviews hence the feel to it Apart from the struggle the historical networks that had connected Himalayan region are illustrated through the narratives Bhutan Sikkim Kalimpong Darjeeling Nepal Tibet a

    MOBI ñ DOC The Noodle Maker of Kalimpong Hardcover ã GYALO THONDUP The Noodle Maker of KalimpongThis book reveals the darker side of Tibetan Internal Power Struggles It breaks the traditional image of a very peaceful Tibetan Buddhist Society They are not much different than the outside world with each group trying to promote themselves Gyalo Thondup has been bold in his narrative and rightly criticised the Countries who were trying to promote their interests under the garb of support A reasonably detailed description of the horrors committed by the Chinese Government for occupying TibetThe destruction of Tibetan Monasteries burning

    MOBI ñ DOC The Noodle Maker of Kalimpong Hardcover ã GYALO THONDUP The Noodle Maker of KalimpongA no holds barred biography by Gyalo Thondup the brother of the current and 14th Dalai Lama is very informative and relatively factual about the early years in the Thondup household to the rise of the Dalai Lama Whilst the political intrigue and navigation of international murky waters are brought up in snapshots with Russian Indian American and Chinese involvement in the Tibetan struggle I am sure the author has withheld than he has shared but provided an interesting glimpse into some of the big names like Chiang Kai Shek B N Mullick Nehru playing a cameo role in this story The way he contrasts this mystical Tibet where Tibetans in exile hope of returning to the harsh realities of a society left behind in time is hard hitting Also of interest is how the co author has a section where she highlights her opinions of examples where she expects the reader to not take it at face value which I haven't usually seen in a biography and tries to balance out the controvers
