The Noodle Maker of Kalimpong

The Noodle Maker of Kalimpong

The Untold Story of My Struggle for Tibet

Audiobook CD - 2015
Rate this:
In December 2010 residents of Kalimpong, a town on the Indian border with Tibet, turned out en masse to welcome the Dalai Lama. It was only then they realized for the first time that the neighbor they knew as the noodle maker of Kalimpong was also the Dalai Lama's older brother. Gyalo Thondup has long lived out of the spotlight, but his whole life has been dedicated to the cause of his younger brother and Tibet. He served for decades as the Dalai Lama's special envoy, the trusted interlocutor between Tibet and foreign leaders from Chiang Kai-shek to Jawaharlal Nehru, Zhou Enlai to Deng Xiaoping. Traveling the globe and meeting behind closed doors, Thondup has been an important witness to some of the epochal events of the twentieth century. In fact, only the Dalai Lama himself has played a more important role in the political history of modern, tragedyridden Tibet. Now, with Anne F. Thurston, Gyalo Thondup is finally telling his story.
