      I think NGO and Takam Tatung should raise the situation of Siang River the lifeline of Northeast which is polluted with hazardous element not fit for human and animal consumption and being diverted to drylands of China, but they’ll not raise the issue becoz CCP itself is paying them to divert the attention for the bigger picture

    Tibetan Journal, don’t simply report whatever deemed to you as news because certain news creates more confusion and unhealthy development to the readers. It would creates more unnecessary political and social gossip to the average minded people. Try to be more selective on the basis of community’s sensitivity. When Tibetans are serving in the sensitive part of Indian military establishment for several decades, for any nation military body is often more secretive and sensitive than any other bodies of GOVT, then on what logical basis Tibetans are THREAT to the Indian national security just because it alleged that two Tibetans are part of Arunachal State govt. When you report it, it serves the purpose of political agenda of opposition elements in Arunachal Pradesh. I don’t think so there is an absolute journalistic ethics if that is what you guys are following.
