SENIOR ALIEN IN US GULAG VS SENIOR IN OCCUPIED TIBET

When you behold the man, his condition is self-evident.

BEIJING, May 18 (Xinhuanet) — A two-story house equipped with all kinds of household appliances is where Cama Ciren, a 72-year-old Tibetan and his wife live.
This is Dianjiao village, where they have lived for 34 years, in Zhaxigang Town of Ga’er County, Ali Prefecture in southwest China’s Tibet Autonomous Region.
“The village was actually isolated from the outside world in the 1980s and 1990s. There were only two or three households,” he recalled.
“Without a tent, we built a rock wall to shelter us from the wind. All of our clothes were scrabbled by hands,” he added.
Things have changed over the years. By 2012, Dianjiao was already a well-off village where each family lived in new house and a newly built road connected the village with the outside world.

At their age, Cama Ciren and his wife are not supposed to labor for a living. But they lead a comfortable life owing to the government subsidy policy.
“The subsidies we receive each year exceed 20,000 yuan,” his wife said, adding that they also enjoy full medical reimbursement, which they could not even imagine before.
Speaking of children’s education, Cama said that there are three college graduates in the village, his daughter being one of them.
“She landed a job immediately after graduation,” he said.
Today, none of the children at school-age in Dianjiao village drops out of school. Their food, accommodation, and tuition fees are all covered by the government.
“A happier life awaits us in the future,” he said.

WHAT DOES INDEPENDENCE DAY MEAN FOR A NEW CITIZEN
July 4th is the day when America became independent, and July 4th is the day when I became an American citizen. It’s a big day for America. It’s a huge day for me.
I’m going to celebrate this day with a bunch of people who are from all around the globe: Colombia, Brazil, Slovakia, Mexico, Taiwan, China, Sweden, and of course, the United States.
I’ve had an American passport for five years now. On paper, I am a legal, law-abiding American citizen, and on paper, I am not an Indian citizen anymore. I wonder about all this. What does it mean to be an American? Am I an American now? Am I not an Indian anymore? Now that I have pledged allegiance to the Star-Spangled Banner, do people see me as an American? And for the same reason, do people not see me as an Indian, anymore?
Every year, July 4th makes me reflect about my journey from India to the United States. About 15 years ago, I moved to the US, and I didn’t even know the significance of July 4.
Before that, I celebrated August 15 — the day when India gained independence from the British. I, as a child, got excited about this day, mostly because I got off school early that day. I never wanted to miss school on August 15 because we got laddoos, a donuthole-like sweet snack, a pack of candies and a tiny Indian flag. I walked back home with my friends from school and then played cricket most of the day. I never went to any cookout parties in India where they had giant cakes that looked like an Indian flag.
Tomorrow, in Ann Arbor, I will be at a cookout party and there will be a giant cake with an American flag. This brings me back to the question: Am I an American? Or am I still an Indian? And, most importantly, do these labels have to be so exclusive?
Readers, what do you think about being American and labels and the Fourth? Let us know in the comments section. And if you want to get into the historical issues of the Fourth, with a rock beat, we offer you this video.)
