This year, the 10th of March coincided with the Indian festival Holi, the celebration of colours. They smear everyody in sight with colours. But Friends of Tibet (INDIA) in Bombay managed to do our best on the March 10, 2000. Infact, it has been one of the most attended programmes in the recent times. It was 'Forbidden Land,' an exhibition of 70 photographs organised by Friends of Tibet (INDIA), in association with the Gu-Chu-Sum Movement of Tibet at the Churchgate Station in Bombay on March 10, 2000 (Saturday) to commemorate the 42nd Anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising in Lhasa on 10 March 1959.
The exhibition narrating a brief history of Tibet shows the destruction done by the Chinese during the cultural revolution, and the grave present situation in Tibet was 'educational' for the general public. About a lakh (1,00,000) people who strolled by, gazed, studied, asked questions during the exhibition which was open from five o'clock in the morning and went on till 11 O'clock in the night.
