Exhibit on Tibet's democratic reforms attracts Tibetan audiences

"Through these exhibited pictures, I get to know the strong contrast between the cruel ally religion with politics system in old Tibet and today's happy life of Tibetan locals," said Qiangci, a monk from Aba Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan Province who is visiting the exhibition marking the 50th anniversary of Tibet's democratic reforms and surprised at the great changes of Tibet in past 50 years.

Dawa is from Gyangze County of Xigaze Prefecture and moves to Doilungdeqen County in Lhasa in 2007. When hearing there is an exhibition in Lhasa, Dawa rushed here. "The exhibition calls my remembrance to the old Tibet and if I was born 50 years ago, I was sure to be a Nangsan (house slave) without any freedom," Dawa said.

Sangduo has suffered from the feudal serf system in old Tibet and he visited the exhibition on wheelchair. "It is hard for young people who have not experienced the old Tibet to imagine how painful the locals are under the feudal serf system at that time."

Dondrup, 80-year-old, walking on crutches carefully enjoys every picture with his presbyopic glasses. In his 80 years, Dondrup witnessed the courses of Tibet's development. "Since the democratic reforms in Tibet, especially in last 30 years of reform and opening-up, it is obvious to all the Tibetans that Tibet has experienced great changes. All of the development should be attributed to our Party. We can't get such a happy life without the historical pioneering work of Chinese Communist," Dondrup said.

Sonam, a staffer from Tibet Center for Educational Technology, came to the exhibit hall with her husband and 8-year-old son on the morning of June 28. "Comparing with oral lecture, it is more obvious to launch patriotism education with practical instances and articles. The victory of Tibet's democratic reforms is hard-earned. We should remember the history and we should still tell our children about the history," Sonam expressed.

Through pieces of treasured cultural relics and historical photos reflecting the world-shaking changes since the democratic reforms in Tibet in 1959, visitors can make up their mind for a further developing Tibet.
