These women are old friends who had fled Tibet with their families shortly after the Dalai Lama left in 1959. Dolkar’s husband was killed during the uprising leaving her with a family of six to raise. She said “although it was a very hard and sad time, having to leave and come to India brought these wonderful friends into my life.”
