Resolutions

The following resolutions are unanimously tabled by 9th TCSC

An appeal letter to the Department of Education

 

  • It would be beneficial if Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) opens a new website on literature.
  • The CTA should establish a separate excellent Translation Department mainly on Tibetan, English and Hindi languages.
  • To produce qualified teachers in the schools, exam should be conducted on regular basis for teachers and wages of the teachers should be increased so that qualified teachers will remain in the job.
  • There exist many shortcomings in the present primary schools. For instance the courses are not compatible with the standard of the students and lack potentiality to inculcate the sense of nationalism. Thus it is essential to make courses which are compatible with the standard of the students, courses on the contemporary history of Tibet and also courses on nationalism in which important messages of Great martyrs are included. Similarly, it is important to appoint qualified mathematics and science teachers in the schools.
  • It is well-known that the department of education has been working on translating the modern terminology into Tibetan languages. It is requested that while coining new words into Tibetan, attention should also be paid to grammatical context so that translatedwords do not transgress the rules of grammar.
  • The career counsellors in the schools have benefited a lot to the students in selecting their careers. Likewise, it seems necessary to have career counsellors in the primary schools which will help students to choose their career in the early age and thus form foundation and booze confidence in them.
  • The education department should increase the scholarship amount of the PhD students, nurture them and give recognition to them.
  • The criteria for providing scholarship should not be merely based on the final exam but other aspects such as moral discipline, deep knowledge, and general personality should also be considered.
  • If the PhD students and professionals visit the schools and share their knowledge and experiences, it would certainly bring positive potentials in knowledge and understanding in the schools.
  • It is learned that some students are taking scholarship from TCV as well as from department of education which is against the norm. Therefore, a thorough investigation should be conducted with initiative from both the scholarship providers.
  • It would be beneficial if the department of education organizes an intensive preparation program for medical entrance examination to the students of class 11 and 12, who are opting for MBBS courses, during their long vacation.
  • The CTA or TCV are requested to build a separate accommodation for college students in Chennai and Chandigarh.
  • Parents play an important role in making an educated and morally excellent future generation. So, it is our earnest request to the department of education to conduct workshops and training programs on family planning and education to the parents living in the settlements.
  • A career counselling program should be conducted in Tibetan schools in Nepal, run under the Department of education.
  • As per rules, the Borada college students have to appear for Hindi language examination which affects and their performance in the examination of the major subjects. Hindi language is only studied at the secondary level. Therefore, it is requested to the department of education to provide a recommendation letter to the students in this regard so that students need not appear for Hindi language and devote more time to the study of their major subjects.

9th Tibetan College Students’ Conference

 

An appeal letter to the Member of Parliament, CTA

 

The college students are the future leaders of the society. This is an unavoidable responsibility and it gives us new encouragement and vigour. The Tibetan College students’ conference is a common representative of Tibetan students studying in various colleges and universities. The establishment of this body itself demonstrates the courage and strength of the Tibetan college students. On the 9th Tibetan college students’ conference, unlike the other past conferences, we would like to personally invite you and humbly submit this appeal letter for your kind consideration and prompt action at the earliest.

  • Any document, press release and so forth distributed by the CTA and its branches should be made into Tibetan language and also during the official visit paid by the CTA representatives to different Tibetan settlements, they should adhere to Tibetan language when addressing the general public.
  • Strict security measures should be taken by the related officials whenever H.H the Dalai Lama paysvisit.
  • As advised by H.H the Dalai Lama on the importance and necessity of professionalismand research among Tibetan students, CTA should take strong initiatives with the dept. of education in order to strengthen the work and for the better outcome.
  • Till now the official visits by the members of parliament in the settlements are merely confined to giving talks. In future, MPs should not only give talk on the aims and purposes of the visit, they should also make people aware about the political issues, democratic values, sustainability of settlement and looking after the well- being of the people.A thorough investigation on every ground should be made and thereafter, developmental projects should be implemented in the society.
  • In BHU, though there are two separate seats in the foreign quarter for the MBBS course, but so far CTA has not registered in the dept. of health, govt. of India. Therefore, Tibetan students are not able to take admission to the MBBS courses. So, CTA should register at the earliest to avoid further hindrances for the Tibetan students in getting admission to MBBS courses.
  • The Tibetan college students’ conference will collect IC 50 from each Tibetan living in diaspora to make contribution to the project related to generating professionalism and PhD level research in Tibetan society.

An appeal letter to the TCV schools

  • Due to repeatedly changing Chinese language teacher in the Dalai Lama College, Bangalore, students are facing problems in their studies and thus it has become necessary to appoint a permanent Chinese language teacher.
  • It is beneficial to the students in the schools that mathematics, science, history and other subjects which are in English language should be taught in English language.
  • Thought the education facilities in the TCV have improved a lot but it has been observed that there is a degradation of moral discipline in the students. Therefore, treating this as an important matter, TCV should take initiative at the earliest.
  • There exist many shortcomings in the present primary schools. For instance the courses are not compatible with the standard of the students and lack potentiality to inculcate the sense of nationalism. Thus it is essential to make courses which are compatible with the standard of the students, courses on the contemporary history of Tibet and also courses on nationalism in which important messages of Great martyrs are included. Similarly, it is important to appoint qualified mathematics and science teachers in the schools.
  • The career counsellors in the schools have benefited a lot to the students in selecting their careers. Likewise, it seems necessary to have career counsellors in the primary schools which will help students to choose their career in the early age and thus form foundation and booze confidence in them.
  • To produce qualified teachers in the schools, exam should be conducted on regular basis for teachers and wages of the teachers should be increased so that qualified teachers will remain in the job.
