Why are you so Silent?

Why are you so silent?

When your countrymen continue to scream in great pain, Behind the bars with broken bones.

Why are you so silent?

When the monasteries and nunneries are destroyed and demolished down to ashes.

Why are you so silent?

When the forests are fired and trees cut down to Timbers in great number.

Why are you so silent?

When the monks and nuns in great numbers are forcibly evicted from their institutions.

Why are you so silent?

When the singers and writers are imprisoned for speaking out the injustice imposed upon them.

Why are you so silent?

When they mined minerals out of the mountains and made a whole lot of holes in the Himalayas.

Why are you so silent?

When they installed eyes on every street pole and watched you pee and peep in deep silence.

Why are you so silent?

When the rivers and rivulet are controlled by building dams after dams.

  1. Such a beautiful and poignant question!

    Could you please, read and comment about my today’s post? It is about an extraordinary Indian man whose
    life story was made into a film. It will melt your heart!

    Thank you!

    1. Extend my sincere gratitude and thanks for keeping eye on my updates. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in advance. May the new year bring you a good health and Happiness in abundance. Hope we will see more and more people raise their voice for the voiceless innocent Tibetans who continues to suffer under the Chinese oppressive policies inside Tibet.
      Thank You for the support!

  2. You’ve given us much to think on and hopefully turn into action. Also, I like your quote at the beginning,”I have enough time to rest but I don’t have a minute to waste”. Thank you for choosing to follow my blog. May it be a blessing to you.

  3. Passionate and heartfelt words! I too believe in speaking out against any injustice I see. But as I grow older, I have begun to wonder – does it do any good? I’m talking about private lives, not public ones. I have found that the moment I start arguing with someone, they harden their stance. It becomes, in fact, counter productive. I’d like to learn from the Dalai Lama how to initiate a peaceful discussion!

  4. “Being *silent* is having many things *&*values to expound on
    when the time is right to reveal your truths *&* solutions
    making the world a safe and fair place to live in in peace.”_-Van Prince

  5. Such powerful lines which touch on so much suffering and destruction. If these events are taking place in your country, I pray that people will awaken and prevent these losses. Beautifully worded and constructed lines.

  6. Territorial expansion on the back of a powerful army is the only game in town. Unfortunately. Despite all societies calling themselves peace-loving. Laughable. Nobody steps back. And we the people egg on our political leaders.

    Human kind is not kind.
    Plants, animals are becoming in the state of extinction.
    Sixth extinction will be of human being the human being.

  8. I had the enormous privilege to visit Tibet in 1986. An experience I shall never forget. What happened to your people is heart-breaking, tragic. In the small way I am able, I will always support Free Tibet. Blessings.
