In the evening the same club had arranged one symposium on the life and work of 10th Panchen Lama. There were four speakers including social science teacher, Mr. NgawangTseten la. All the speakers had in fact done extensive research on their topic especially the chairperson was very good in moderating the symposium. It was very informative and a good learning experience for both the teachers and students on the floor.

Today no body knows about the whereabouts of Panchen Lama. Tibetans all over the world are shouting for the safe release of him. He has become the world’s youngest political prisoner. Let us all work hard for the safety of Gedun Choekyi Nyima.
