Watching the 3rd 'Heart-Of-The-Matter'

Day Three (Tuesday. July 2, 2002): Karma Yeshi la gave the first talk on 'Activism In The Tibetan Freedom Struggle'. Participation from the floor unlike the previous days were quite forthcoming.

Drama practice was done from 10.45am till lunch. One group remained in the hall, while the other went upstairs. The afternoon session was the screening of the recording of Hortsang Jigme's talk on 'Return To Tibet To Return The Issue' and later we discussed two parts of the film 'A Force More Powerful: A Century of Non-Violent Conflict' (Dir: Steve York). Some participants went off the topic of the discussion raising issues related to Tibetan culture etc. At 4pm, we screened the remaining part of the film 'A Force More Powerful: A Century Of Non-Violent Conflict' and discussed. There were not many comments or reactions.
