The defining moment for Mcledoganj came about , when the Indian govt granted refuge to The Dalai Lama in 1959. What was until that point a sleepy little town, began bustling with thousands of Tibetans . The diaspora brought with it a slice of Tibet , and its history. Noticeably, the atmosphere in Mcledoganj is charged with an air of defiance against the might of the Chinese state. There are frequent candle marches with cries of protest echoing in the air. Every nook and corner in the main town square has been emblazoned with grafittis and slogans – calling for and end to Tibet’s oppression.
