A Broken-hearted Man’s Letter to Beautiful Miss Tsering Kyi

This is a personal blog entry written by Khyung Gi Brag Skyibs (Translated and submitted by Lobsang, January 28, 2008)

Nowadays, it is so sad to see Tibetans, specifically some students and monks, fighting amongst themselves in humiliating and tragic ways, while they completely ignore the outside enemies who are nearly devouring us. Tsering Kyi, Miss Tibet, is an important Tibetan writer in the literary world and a role model for many women. I think we all probably agree with this statement. As she has claimed, she has been working hard for the preservation of Tibetan culture. If so, why do we need to see such a bad picture as that which is in front of us? People won’t believe that I wrote this piece for the sake of our nationality, but I believe in myself. If Miss Tibet can do things like that, what do you expect stupid women and men like us to do? If you pose for pictures that nearly reveal your breasts, people like us who idolize you will go out in public with our genitals exposed. Let’s say we totally ignore whatever people say about us; should we respond by saying that those people are stupid and narrow minded? Do you think this is right?

On the matter of culture and customs, everybody is talking about preservation and innovation. What makes the land of snow unique is that it is the land of Avalokiteśvara [the Bodhisattva of Compassion]. Are there not people saying that this nationality has belief in compassion and knows right from wrong? That this nationality has a good quality of life? Are all of these lies? Everybody is talking about you, Tsering Kyi, coming back to your blog, with hope, and they want to share their heartfelt words. Everybody is clapping. However, I am not happy at all. Miss Tibet came back naked. Is this just your proclamation of our backwardness? Perhaps this is an assault on the good characteristics of Tibetan customs. There are ways to develop and advance without showing breasts and sexuality in public. We should not abandon the unique and good characteristics of Tibetan customs and ways of thinking. In conclusion, you can see from this long letter on one single picture how much hope and belief I have in her.(PS) If you want to reply to this letter, please think carefully and don’t get angry about this small matter. But, sometimes we need to begin talking about something big by beginning with something small.

  • I like the last sentence,”But, sometines we need to begin talking about something big by beginning with something small.” So maybe Miss Kyi is reaveling something small of her flesh to begin reaveling something big about our perception of beauty, women, role model and Tibetan culture?

  • I think it is her proclamation of our backwardness and an attempt to engage Tibetans in the diversity of modern world.
    On this picture we can see her chest, not even part of her breassts. Even if she shows herself naked, its not that big deal
    It is inappropriate to impose cultural and social pressures on individuals. What about Hollywood celebrities?. Are they disgracing and embarrassing their country? “What makes the land of snow unique is that it is the land of Avalokiteśvara [the Bodhisattva of Compassion]”. What is all this nonsense? “Are there not people saying that this nationality has belief in compassion and knows right from wrong”? Yes there are but they are only Tibetans like you, not others. “That this nationality has a good quality of life? Are all of these lies”? Yes its the way self-sentered Tibetans think, but it’s a lie if you say this is what others are thinking about Tibetans.

  • Hahahahahaha, i really confused what she is really wanted to do or act in above picture. what she really wanted to show us her breast or skinny chest. It is real image of miss tibet after some years later since she got the title. i dont know what she is trying to express or welcome someone to fuck her and suck her breast in the sun light. i think that is real colour of herself , maybe she did some flesh trade while she was staying in germany or england.

  • Her picture as well as her current disposition are totally shocking to say the least. I saw her before she was Lobsang Wangyal’s Ms. Tibet. A natural beauty. Now she has ruined herself. A woman who is truly concerned about other women’s conditions and well being should be a good woman–not a home breaker! Ms. Tsering Kyi broke so many homes by always having affairs with married men. She has brought miseries to so many families. She is a bitch went wild!!!

    Now I wonder what she plans to do in Tibetan Women’s Association? Break more homes!!!!

  • Has anyone here ever been to a beach and seen people in bathing suits? has anyone been to a river or hot water spring in Tibet? Does anyone know that in Tibetan culture, breasts are not considered something that must be hidden. Does anyone not see that Tsering Kyi is fully clothed in this picture? Some of the posters sound more like a taliban than Tibetan. The future for Tibet would be bleak, backward and unTibetan if you guys had any say in it.

  • Tsering Kyi Gangsangtsang was born in eastern Tibet on 10th of December 1983, Amdo Amchok. Tsering graduated high school from Tibet and after escaping into India in 1999, she continued her studies at the Tibetan Children’s Village school. In 2003, Tsering participated in the Miss Tibet contest and was crowned the ‘Miss Tibet 2003’. Upon becoming Miss Tibet, Tsering traveled to 13 different countries as an ambassador for the Tibetan cause; she particularly took a keen interest in highlighting the Tibetan women’s case on many occasions. From 2005 to 2008, she continued her further studies in England and Germany, focusing on English and Chinese language writing and journalism. In 2008, as Tibetan people in Tibet protested in Tibet, Tsering returned from school to serve the exile Tibetan community in India. Since returning in 2008, she has been working for the Tibetan new agency (Tibet Times ).
    During the 9th General Body Meeting of Tibetan Women’s Association in April of 2009, Tsering Kyi was requested to be one of the moderators for the five-day meeting. After a successful stint as the young moderator, Tsering was elected to be the central executive member of Tibetan Women’s Association. She now heads the Tibetan Section of the ‘Research and Media’ desk at TWA.
    Tsering is also a freelance writer and she has already composed two books based on life in exile: “Lenbu Seb Kyi Mi Dhang” and “Daweh Tsom” . Her writing has won awards from early on as she was the first prize winner of Tibetan Children Village and Central School for Tibetan’s essay competition for two consecutive years in 2002 to 2003. Moreover, in 2007 she was selected as the second most read blogger on a popular blog spot from Tibet. She is not only a member of Association of Tibetan Writers, and International Writer’s Association, she is also a proud member of the young Tibetan Writer’s Association, a group based in Tibet.
    Tsering has written umpteen numbers of lyrics for Tibetan songs and three such lyrics composed by Tsering has been incorporated into famous songs in Tibet. Tsering is today an established figure in the realms of female intellectuals’ reverrred and admired by the Tibetans inside of Tibet.
    Tsering strongly believes that a human being should have a sound soul and a wise mind, and essentially a woman has to have the conviction, unremitting faith and the intellectual nerve to embody womanhood. Tsering never believes in resting in laurels and she holds a steadfast commitment to be an achiever and an icon.
    She states: “As a Tibetan, my whole future is inextricably linked to the spirit of Tibet; I feel particularly one with the Tibetans in Tibet whose courage and struggle will forever remain a part of me. For the freedom of the future generations of Tibet, I will remain an activist. As a Tibetan woman, I draw strength and wisdom from the lives of Tibetan women and as such it is a rightful duty of a Tibetan woman to work to empower ourselves.”
