2017 – Demonstration in front of the India High Commission, Ottawa, Canada

On August of 2017, members of AIDCI (Association of India Deoli Camp Internees) in Toronto, Canada had a mission. Our mission was to take a road trip from Toronto to Ottawa and demonstrate in front of the India High Commission to make public awareness of what happened to Chinese Indians in the aftermath of the 1962 Border War between India and China. We especially chose this time given the new escalation of border tension, and we did not want history to repeat itself.
 
Yes, it took a long time for us to finally get up the courage to do so.

Public Awareness Talks in Delhi — October 2015

There were nine people in our group. Rafeeq Ellias, a photojournalist, who has been a loyal supporter of the Chinese Indian community in India, and also of those outside India who want to have their stories heard. We wouldn’t have been able to make this happen without Rafeeq’s help. Four survivors of the Deoli Internment Camp, Michael, Joy, Steven and me. My sister, Pu-Chin, joined us because she wanted to be with me on this historic trip. Dilip, a writer and journalist based in Mumbai was introduced to us by Rafeeq.
