My father was active in the anti-Chinese resistance, and I grew up hearing stories of past battles and brave Khampa heroes. I can pinpoint fairly exactly the time when I began to develop my earliest feelings about issues like independence, autonomy, 10 Growing Up in Kham and China and resistance. It was when Kesang Tsering came to Batang in 1932. 1 I remember Kesang Tsering’s arrival in Batang vividly. He rode into our village on a large Chinese horse, looking glorious in his shiny government uniform.
There was a problem, however. Dawa and I had hardly any money, and at ﬁrst we didn’t know how we could afford to make the trip. Then Dawa came up with the solution. He was engaged to be married to Kesang Tsering’s younger sister and had bought a gold engagement ring for her. We sold the ring for twentyﬁve yuan, borrowed a little money from some of the other Batang students, and eventually had enough for traveling expenses. We got a leave of absence from the school by telling the administration that Dawa’s ﬁancée had come to Hunan and that we needed to visit her.
He asked what I liked and I told him. ” After that, we became very good friends and shared ideas and readings. Another Bapa, Ngawang Kesang, also joined our core group. He had been educated by the American missionaries in Batang and lived in their orphanage because his father had died when he was young and his mother was unable to raise him. After ﬁnishing primary school, the Americans sent him to a middle school in Chengdu together with two other Tibetan children. Ngawang Kesang told me that when the three of them ﬁrst arrived in Chengdu the Chinese students thought they would be real bumpkins coming from a “backward” Tibetan area.
