History, Backgrounds, and Geography of Quake Affected Areas in Nepal and Tibet

The recent earthquake in Nepal has affected almost all the Tibetan settled areas in Nepal and many towns and villages in the border areas of Tibet. While many international media as well as the Tibetan media discuss about these places in the context of earthquake related news, many ordinary people as well as some people in responsible position don’t have much knowledge about the history, geography, socio-economic situation of many of these places. Table Talk invites the former Dalai Lama's representative to Nepal, and the author of a book on Nyalam and Dingri region of Tibet, Mr. Rinchen Dharlo to discuss the background, current situation as well as the scale of damages in Tibetan settled areas in Nepal and border lying areas of Tibet.
