The chief guest Dr. Arun Kumar, Indian parliament member and staunch supporter of Tibetan cause inaugurated the 2-day International Rangzen Conference which began at India International Centre, New Delhi on May 23, 2015.
"The conference has nothing to do with any of the Tibetan organizations in India and abroad. It is a voluntary meeting of individuals who share the same ideology of Rangzen," says Tenzin Tsundue organizing committee member of the conference.
Lhasang Tsering from Dharamsala, Sonam Wangdue who lives in the United States, Gonpo Trinley, a former political prisoner from Tibet who arrived recently in India were presented gifts in recognition of their contributions made in Rangzen struggle.
During the last day of the conference, a press meet was convened to declare their 4-point resolution.
The 4-points were on Tibetan freedom struggle, critical situation inside Tibet, unity among Tibetans in exile, and on garnering international support.
The conference had two parts, one with closed door meetings, and another encompassing panel discussions where Indian think tanks were invited.
The conference gathered around 100 second generation Tibetans born in exile who advocate Rangzen (Freedom) to discuss ways and means to uphold Rangzen ideologies. Many of them were students studying in Indian universities of Gandhinagar, Baroda, Banglore, Mysore, Delhi, and Jawaharlal Nehru university. Tibetan residents of Dharamsala and Bir in Himachal Pradesh were also among the attendees.
