Informative, Entertaining and Enlightening

It’s an innovative approach and does achieve its motive of introducing the cause of Tibet, the struggles of the culture and community, the identity under duress and the heroes who have played key roles in the process. At times entertaining, always informative and thoroughly engaging....it does much to broaden the public exposure to a fundamental case of human rights abuse and cultural genocide that is often times overlooked.
