The Noodle Maker of Kalimpong: the untold story of my struggle for tibet Kindle Edition
Author: Gyalo Thondup
This is the untold story of Tibet—a compelling account of conspiracy, covert organizations and international intrigue. It includes hitherto classified information and photos gleaned from privileged sources. Central to these revelations is a seemingly simple man: Gyalo Thondup, the Dalai Lamas elder brother. After Tibet was overrun by the Chinese in 1951, Thondup served for decades as His Holinesss special envoy—the trusted interlocutor between his country and foreign leaders including Chiang Kai-shek, Jawaharlal Nehru, Zhou Enlai and Deng Xiaoping. He has acted as a go-between for the CIA and Tibetan freedom fighters. He has recruited for the resistance and negotiated with China. His has been a vital role in the history of modern, tragedy-ridden Tibet.
