  1. Caleb, thank you for this sensitive look at the effect of torture on these people, and its treatment. It’s easy to become desinsitized to human rights and torture in other parts of the world. You’ve put a meaningful human face on it

  2. Are we talking about Tibetan Medicine? Why not study how a traditional Tibetan Medicine, which contains the chief Lama’s feces and urine, works? You’ll earn Nobel Prize for that.

  3. This is trully wonderful work. I am very glad to see at Boston University this longterm commitment to treat victims of torture and human right violations. Congratulations to Dr. Grodin and his team, and thank you very much for your inspiring work!

  4. If your HEART goes out to Tibet, why don’t you bring your BODY there to see and feel the facts too??? There are more people there need your help, not just the monks here who claimed being tortured, but also normal people there who are indeed assaulted by terrorists (some of them are even monks) supported by some Tibet organizations out of China, such as TYC.
    Again, yes, there is a crisis and horrible thing. But the truth behind is so complicated that having a simple judgment from anyone who sits in the comfort office thousands of miles away from Tibet is a very irresponsible behavior.

  5. First off: I am a China lover. But I am so dismayed to see the venom that is expressed whenever a western journalist comments on Tibet. Really, a Lama’s feces? And the F*** comment? Please, Tibet-haters, try to respond as if you were educated. I expect more from the people of China.

  6. Having been to Tibet and saw in first hand the “real-situation”, AND having exposure to both Western and Chinese media, I am not on any particular side of the argument.

    It is just interesting for me to see how the West and China play their Propaganda games on Tibet.

    To be honest, BOTH sides are just using Tibet, a land without major military strategical value and with only one-fifth of the population of New York City, as a piece of chess to gain their own political interests and leverage.
