(PRINCETON, NJ) - (Please welcome the first video produced by Rajiv Malhotra, an American/Indian public intellectual and philanthropist, he works full time with Infinity Foundation, a non-profit organization in Princeton, N.J. which he founded in 1995 to foster harmony among the diverse cultures of the world. He is a longtime supporter of the Tibetan cause.)

The Tibetan Youth Congress approached me to be their keynote speaker at the end of a large rally and hunger strike in front of the Chinese consulate in Manhattan.

Their peaceful event brought 10,000 supporters, mostly white Americans and Tibetans. Traffic was stopped for a few blocks.

There was heavy police presence. Rumors floated that the Chinese officials in the consulate across the street were photographing the participants to black list them.

I deeply believe in the Tibetan cause at many levels - spiritual, human rights, and geopolitical. It is unfortunate that USA has abandoned them due to Chinese pressure.
