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.’

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.
W. J. Barnett, USA
My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude
Tom Anderson, Canada
An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
