This is a wonderful book that enables the reader to understand the sad situation of Tibet through the eyes of the Tibetan school children. Many of these children suffer from the separation and loss of their families in Chinese-occupied Tibet. The book brings to life their childhood memories, the Tibetan spirit and culture and the future aspiration of these unfortunate children who now in exile have the opportunity for education like their counterparts in the free world.

The Tibetan Homes Foundation in Mussoorie, India, was established in 1962 under the direction of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It was formed as an emergency measure to receive the waves of refugee children arriving from Tibet, escaping persecution. Along with a standard English curriculum, THF has created a traditional living environment and classes that are designed to foster the knowledge and preservation of Tibetan culture. A painting club was established in 1995 by the Friends of Tibetan Women's Association to provide these children with a creative way to share their stories of leaving Tibet, their remembrances of home, and to give new and colorful expression to their lives as exiles in India. The Art of Exile: Paintings by Tibetan Children in India is a moving collection of interviews, photographs, and paintings from the children of Tibet-in-exile. It reveals the deep personal struggles and triumphs of these brave and vibrant individuals. It also illuminates the depth of commitment by the Tibetan people to keep their unique culture and language alive. Visually it presents often remarkably accomplished works of art, many that derive from the ancient thangka tradition of Tibet. Conceived by Friends of Tibetan Women's AssociationAbout the Author:
