spiritual leader the Dalai Lama gestures
as he addresses Mumbai University
students in Mumbai, India. The Dalai
Lama said Thursday that
he will give up his political role in
Tibet's government-in-exile, shifting
that power to an elected representative.
The Tibetan spiritual leader, speaking
on the anniversary of the 1959 Tibetan
uprising against Chinese control, said
the time has come "to devolve my formal
authority to the elected leader."
