A Tibetan exile, Jamphel Yeshi, 27, runs after setting himself on fire during a protest against the upcoming visit of Chinese President Hu Jintao to India in New Delhi March 26, 2012. Hu is scheduled to attend the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) Summit in India on March 29. Yeshi escaped from Tibet in 2006 and has been living in New Delhi for two years.
I feel terrible for the Tibetans who feel repressed, but freeing Tibet is simply a lose-lose situation. Tibet simply can’t prosper as an independent nation.
