He is a trouble maker

He is still the best hope for China to come to a mutually acceptable conclusion. According to himself, he is just a monk ...

More a trouble maker than peacemaker.  Better for China to move on without him.  Treat him as IRRELEVANT.

Tibet has no need for DL ... proven 50-year history

Tibet is doing very well.  Proven 50-year history.

If you consider the fact that the CCP has banned display of photos of the DL, and that it had rejected DL's selection of the Panchen Lama, and yet Tibet is relatively stable...actually very stable the point of being unshakeable... despite the occasional riots and ongoing racial tensions.  The tensions will decrease and diminish with time if economy propers and the prosperity is spread more equitably.

The reason is the CCP has liberated the masses from slavery and serfdom.   And that is 95% of the population!

Even Dalai Lama's elder brother (the one that can speak Mandarin) was anxious that the Tibetans would give their allegiance to the CCP, he said in the 1950s, if Lhasa local government refused to implement reforms and the CCP did.  He knew his people well and he was definitely right!

The 2008 rioters and mobs were mainly the younger generation who had no knowledge of the old days and they got sucked up by the DL's propaganda, and were exploited and deceived by them into action because of their relative poverty.  And as always the case, the monks loyal to the DL were leading them.

So, the Serfs Emancipation Day is a very good idea. Celebrate it every year , and once every 5 and 10 years celebrate it in a BIG BIG WAY to remind the Tibetans and the international community what Tibet was like when the DL was on the throne!

Also there should be a book published (in all major languages) that record the testimonies of those who were liberated.  There used to be a book by Israel Epstein.  But the book needs an updating.  It contains too much "Cultural Revolution" baggage.  Do it while the older generation is still alive!  Try to get at least 100 personal testimonies, with their photos, names, etc.  This will be part  of the historical record.

"is (was?) a Chinese citizen with a big ego"

He is the Son of India.  Or, a son of India.

Deng Xiao-peng is right to say. "Let him remain in India.... We will think about (the exiles) one hundred year later."  Deng said this to President Ford.

I almost forget that monk. It seems he has been out of the time.
