It is well known fact that the problem of Tibetan refugees is a living problem and it is bound to remain so for many years to come. Despite of constant protests made by Communist China on the issue of Tibetan refugees, the Government of India remains in a state of readiness to tackle the problem on a scale and in a manner which the magnitude and intensity of the problem demand. The grant of asylum to political and religious refugees has been the tradition of every civilized community... Repatriation is not the ultimate, real solution of the problem of Tibetan refugees. On the contrary, the immediate problems and important questions of these refugees are the three basic needs of livelihood, food, clothing and shelter. Besides this, medical aid, education, employment, settlement and finally absorption come to the forefront. These questions are not temporary or time being concerns at least in the case of Tibetan refugees. This is how the situation of Tibetan refugees in India provoked the author to undertake this study which makes an attempt to find out the action/reaction of the local people vis-a-vis Tibetan in and around the settlement camps. Contents: (1) An Introduction to the Term Refugee, (2) Historical Background of Tibetan Refugees, (3) Survival in Exile, (4) Reconstruction of Tibet in Exile, (5) Implications on India as a Host Nation, Conclusion, Appendices.Printed Pages: 156.
