Tibetans Celebrate 46th Democracy Day


Tibetans around the world are celebrating the 46th anniversary of their Democracy Day.

Among the exiled Tibetan community in India and elsewhere, formal and informal celebrations are being held Saturday.

At a Tibetan school in New Delhi, a gathering of people heard speeches by dignitaries including a representative of Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama. Students at the school performed Tibetan cultural songs and dances for those in attendance.

On September 2, 1960, a 13-member assembly of Tibetan exiles met for the first time in Dharamsala, northern India. The Tibetan community observes this day each year as Democracy Day.
