"Obviously the writers are using something known as poetic license."
I'll assume that's ironic. As for whether the writers have the same name... 'The Revolutionary Worker Online' seems to be too revolutionary to actually name writers. I think the guy who really attacked Deng was the head of the organisation, though.
If you want Grunfeld to be judged on his own merits, it would be better to post something written by him, no?
"Whatever the problems in exile, Tbtns will probably never return home voluntarily. While the Chinese press may believe that "the figure [of returning exiles] is growing steadily as Tbt opens wider to the outside world" and the TAR government offers monetary incentives such as a RMB 1500-2000 (about US$180-241) allowance per family in addition to land, pasture, and livestock, only 1800 have returned permanently although 11,600 have visited Tbt since the border was opened."
"Many poor Tibetan exiles have their own reasons for rejecting the ways of old feudal Tibet. Grunfeld writes: "An anthropologist who interviewed many of the poorer refugees reported that they viewed the old society with some sense of shame and discussed it with outsiders only with extreme reluctance; he reported that `a number indicated to me that they would prefer to remain in Mysore [India] rather than return to Tibet as it was under the old system."
Yes, that quote says that some poorer Tibtns prefer life in India to their lives as they were in Tbt. That part, interestingly, is the article citing Grunfeld citing an unnamed anthropologist- do you know who that anthropologist is? Given that he/she has been to the area and interviewed the people there (it doesn't seem Grunfeld has, although you're welcome to correct that), he/she might be a better source.
By the way, if your argument is that conditions in India are really bad, what about the quote above? It suggests that very few Tbtns have returned permanently despite government incentives. By way of comparison, estimated figures for people leaving Tbt for Nepal and India (risking their lives to do so, it seems) that I've found online are something like 1-3,000 per year (alternative figures welcome, again). Why would that happen if Dharamsala is "Hell on Earth"?
