Nation bids tearful adieu to Tibetan-Indian SFF hero
Amid chants of “Bharat Mata Ki Jai”, Nyima Tenzing, Non- Commissioned Officer of Special Frontier Force (SFF) of Indian Army, who died on August 30 in a landmine blast during an operation on the South Bank of Pangong Tso (lake) while foiling a fresh move by the Chinese Army to transgress into the territory of India, was given a final farewell with a 21-gun salute in Leh on Monday. The hundreds from the Tibetan communities as well as locals gathered to bid farewell to the brave heart. The attendees of the funeral hummed songs of Tibetan nationalism and also the national anthem of India.
The mortal remains of Tenzing send out a message to Beijing that Tibetans living in India have joined The Indian Army to resist expansionism of China. “He is a hero not just to the Tibetans but all of India” was the sentiments expressed by the Tibetan community. “He lived for the love of Tibet and died for the love of India” read a poster.
