Detailed Product Description
India, Information Office of H.H. The Dalai Lama, 1978. 70 pp. Small paperback. Near Fine.

Dhondub Choedon was born in 1942 in the Nyethang district of the Lhoka region of Tibet. Her family was what the Chinese would later call among the serf class, since they belonged to the estate of Dhargyal Ling Monastery, which was part of the Labrang (monastic estate) of Ling Rinpoche. They were one of twenty families who had to do labor for the Dhargyal Ling Monastery in order to provide food for the monks. In 1959 her family was favored during the Democratic Reforms Campaign because they were of the lowest class. She was made a member of a song and dance troupe and made to sing songs in praise of Chairman Mao and socialism. She became a member and then the leader of the Communist Youth League. She was then made the political representative of her village in 1962, and during the border war with India of that year she was a brigade leader of Tibetans made to carry supplies for the Chinese. In 1965 she became an administrator of the Red Flag Peoples Commune in the Nyethang area. In 1973 she and her husband escaped from Tibet, leaving behind two children. In 1978 she wrote this short account of her life in the Red Flag Commune.
