Abstract

 

Tenzin Tsundue is a Tibetan poet-activist in India, who is engaged in an incessant struggle to liberate his homeland from Chinese domination. Whenever a Chinese minister or bureaucrat visits India, Tsundue is taken away by the police, like a terrorist, in the name of security measures. His attempts to set foot in his land are thwarted by the Chinese authorities. As a man of impeccable nationalist spirit, Tsundue hardly gives up his ideal of non-violence and his vision of a free Tibet. His writings bear the pain, perplexity and protest of a castaway. But neither the man, nor his poems fall in line with the pre-conceived notions of a victimized refugee. This paper is an attempt to draw parallels between Tenzin Tsundue and the concept of a ‘Homo Sacer’ and to trace the refugee experiences in his poems.

Keywords: Refugee, Exile, Homo Sacer, Other, homeland, identity, assimilation, ideology, Edward Said.
