Kusho Bagdro: Activist, Author, Ex-Political Prisoner

A former Gaden monk who was shot while protesting in 1988, Kusho Bagdro survived three years of torture and beatings before his release and eventual escape to India. Not one to acquiesce too easily once in exile, Kusho Bagdro has been to over 30 countries to speak on Tibet and has authored 15 publications, the most recent one being his book titled, ‘Tibetans will be happy in Tibet, Chinese will be happy in China.’
