Times News Network
A qualified computer engineer, she wants to continue
her education as her parents have always stressed on
academics. But right now, studies aren't on Tashi
Yangchen Serdup's mind. She's just been crowned Miss
Tibet and wants to create awareness about Tibet globally.

Kalsang Dickey fled Lhasa to take part in the Miss Tibet contest. Last week,
Manraj Grewal saw her live out her dream.
It was a friend from McLeodganj who first told her about the night they
crowned Miss Tibet. About the girl from nowhere who would now represent Tibet
on the world stage.

October 16 – Dharamsala:
The new Miss Tibet is swimsuit-shapely, talented,
articulate and dedicated to Tibetan culture and the Dalai Lama. Tashi Yangchen
is a 24-year-old computer engineer from Sikkim, India. Her actual politics are
vague, but when it comes to Tibetan culture, her passion is powerful. She
recently was crowned here in north India, despite criticisms from those who
say the very idea of a Miss Tibet and a swimsuit competition flies in the face
of Tibetan Buddhist ideals and traditions.
