AbstractThe Tibetan community is an immigrant community in India whose origin is in Tibet, which
is presently an autonomous region administered by China, located on the lofty Tibetan
Plateau on the northern side of the Himalayas. Because of its soaring peaks, it is known as the
"Roof of the World." They migrated to India as an escape from colonization by the Chinese.
Indian Government welcomed them with open arms, and they provided them with the
autonomy and self-governance option. This laid a solid foundation for the friendship between
India and the Tibetans in exile. Support from the Indian Government led to the establishment
of the Tibetan Government in exile. The 14th Dalai Lama (Tenzin Gyatso) established the
Tibetan exile administration in the north Indian hill station of Mussoorie on April 29, 1959.
The Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) was moved to Dharamshala, situated in the Indian
State of Himachal Pradesh, in May 1960, making it the HQ of the Tibetan exile world in
India. This paper will try to study the history of Tibetans from their establishment, migration
into India, their way of life, how this way has impacted Indian society, and how to deal with
them going forward.
