The bike rally, themed "Free Tibet, Save India", from Wardha to

The Indian supporters, riding on around 60 motorcycles, carried
Tibetan national flag, placards with pro-Tibet slogans and wore
T-Shirts written "Free Tibet, Save India" to show their support for
Tibetan cause.

On reaching Deeksha Bhoomi, the participants were welcomed by the
Lama Lobsang, President of Regional Tibetan Youth Congress, Mrs.
Bhumkyi Dolma, President of Regional Tibetan Women's Association of
Bandhara and several members of India-Tibet Friendship Society.

Lobsang, who delivered the keynote address on reaching Nagpur,
thanked the people of the region and India for supporting Tibetan
people in their struggle for freedom. He added that Tibetans would
always remain grateful to them.

In Wardha and Nagpur, and all along the way, Tibetan activists and
Indian supporters handed out pamphlets and publications on Tibet
