Falling Through The Roof
Falling Through The Roof
Description
Back of The Book
A group of Delhi University students decide to from the Tibetan Communist Party (TCP), with Tashi, the new chairman of the TCP, planning to liberate is beloved Tibet with the some weapons which caused its downfall. Hits plans, however, do not fall in line with those of Drubchen Rinpoche who believes him to be the reincarnation of Drubtop Rinpoche. His first reincarnation, according to the Lama, invested the Word, the Tibetan alphabet an a hill in Kashmir, some fourteen hundred years ago. According to the Lama, the invention of the Tibetan Word enabled the Tibetan people to take in the whole of the wisdom of ancient India.

Who will succeed in claming Tashi’s beleaguered soul? The modern world that intruded into Tibet in the form of communism or the traditional world of Tibet as epitomised in the person of the Lama?

Thubten Samphel lives and works in Dharamsala.

‘At last, the book on the Tibetan exile experience that so many of us have been waiting for! Thubten Samphel known the Tibetan situation as closely and informedly as almost anyone; and yet he also feels the frustrations and restlessness of his fellow refugees with uncommon conviction and sympathy. His debut novel mixes passion with intelligence, great knowledge with real pathos, and allows us, for the first time in fictional form, to feel the predicament of displaced Tibet from within. Now we can begin to act accordingly.’
