Sunday, January 26, 2020. Living Tibetan Spirits Celebrate India’s 71st Republic Day.

On Sunday, January 26, 2020, the Living Tibetan Spirits celebrate 71st Republic Day of India. The Republic came into its existence on January 26, 1950 when the Constitution of India came into effect replacing the Government of India Act of 1935, the legacy of British Raj in India. This Journey in Independence and Freedom comes with the painful memory of China’s invasion of Tibet in October 1950. Freedom and Occupation remain in the memory of the Living Tibetan Spirits.
