Dalai Lama: Admitted to hospital till weekend
The spiritual leader of Tibet, the Dalai Lama, has been asked to stay in hospital for quite a number of days to undergo checks thereby following a keyhole surgery sometime during last week for removing gallstones. On Wednesday a doctor has revealed this to the media people.
Sources have thrown more light on the news of Dalai Lama. While briefing the reporters of a popular news agency a doctor said, "The Dalai Lama will be released not before Saturday as he prefers to stay here rather than check into a hotel and then report to us for periodic checks."
Seventy three-year-old Dalai Lama has underwent surgery on Friday after being admitted to the New Delhi hospital with abdominal pain.
"He is having a good time and is quite cheerful,” commented the doctor, who declined to be identified.
Tenzin Taklha, the spokesperson of Dalai Lama, too was available for comments. He has confirmed the news to the reporters of a popular news agency by saying that the 1989 Nobel Prize winner will stay for the rest of the week in the privately run facility.
Dalai Lama is going to set up its base in Dharamshala after leaving his Tibetan homeland in China in the year 1959 thereby following a failed anti-Chinese uprising.
After his release from hospital, he will stay in Delhi for one week for post-surgery examination. The doctors have addedthis to the reporters.
A similar episode in the month of August has forced the Nobel Laureate to cancel his engagements and rush to a hospital in Mumbai.
Before his illness, the Dalai Lama had pursued a hectic schedule since he campaigned for improved human rights in Tibet while China hosted the Olympic Games in the month of August.
A report said that Beijing has accused him of masterminding riots against Chinese rule in the Tibetan capital Lhasa and neighbouring areas with Tibetan populations in the month of March for destabilizing the country. However the spiritual leader has denied all the claims.
