I know you're all getting very excited about the football. Not long to wait. Will there be a new name on the trophy this year?
Yes, as the ads across town all read: "So Long Awaited! The very prestigious Football Tournament, In memory of our late Gyalyum Chemo 'The Compassionate Mother of HH the Dalai Lama', is now being organised by the Tibetan National Sports Association." As of tomorrow, Saturday 5 June, teams from Chauntra, Delhi, Dharamshala, Dehra Dun, Kathmandu and Mysore will battle it out, 2 games a day for 8 days. And I will have to sit through every single one of them, spotting the talent to make Tibet a footballing force.
