Notes on Culture & Antique Art, Ethnic Decor & Vintage Fashion | Wovensouls Art Gallery

An outrageous sacrilege about to happen…

Lord Macaulay is said to have authored these words about the conquest of India in the 1800s:

“Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such calibre, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture………”

These words – perfect in their strategy – are now being actioned in Tibet.

A blog post about the planned destruction of Lhasa culture follows in the link below. A destruction that we can do nothing about besides watching helplessly as it unfolds in our lifetime.
