Growing Up Between Words and Worlds – Tibetan (Ramaluk)


Tenzin Dolkar: girl, thanks for taking this opportunity to speak about this issue. You are doing a great job of straddling multiple cultures and languages. It is a skill, and people on either side of the fence don't realize it, and try to discourage or pass remarks (e.g. see in the comments). It is a skill and not an emotional/intellectual disability. You are attending a great college (yay, five college consortium!). Most of my friends speak like you, and almost all of the 90's or millennium kids speak 'ramaluk' tibetan, but the art of navigating different cultures/languages and coming up as a winner is a learned skill.\nyou were spot on with your interpretation on the challenge of living in two different worlds as a Tibetan and a first generation college student/immigrant. maybe, you could submit your thoughts/interpretation on it on Phayul in the 'opinion' section, as an article. That will create quite a stir! However, it might make some people think about this issue and accept its existence to some level.

Endangered Language Alliance: This video is about living "in two worlds", and language mixing and code-switching is very natural for people in that situation across the world — and it is very common across the Tibetan diaspora too. In some cases, it represents a new evolution for a language as it is spoken in a particular place; in other cases, it can also be an important starting point for preserving a language and culture. Thank you for sharing, Chemi Chemi!

Nima Tashisong: I just went through comment…and it's sad writing cheap words. .u RE good n good luck….I don't mind anything about u…u speak good…god bless u…

Hi: u said its difficult to adapt…i say its not difficult .its ur way of accepting differt norm of life and understanding with empathy

Hi: i saw many tibetan kid who brought up in non tibetan community still speaks v good because they didnt leave its as a option and so no excuse can jusitfy for loosing our gist our language…its our moral obligation

Awakened sky: Tibetan culture only keeps one in Bondage where as the West liberates you with rational thinking & opportunities available here that actually makes sense. Tibetan language is dying & it is for good because the language itself limits us. Think about it….

saran cheren: ramaluk is the result of losing your country. in host nation your language is rendered useless. if you are really concerned then move back to india or seek refuge in mongolia where our culture is same. but tibetan love west and money. so don't complain. i perfer nomad lifestyle. decadent lifestyle is meaningless. never want to move west.

White Colour: Are you Tibetan? You came to US in 2007 and you are struggling to speak Tibetan? Unbelievable. "Patriotic" means ཞེན་སེམས་ འམ་ རྒྱལ་ཞེན་ in Tibetan. You may be gaining something but you are loosing something as well.

OngNiel Trash: "ཨམ་" lol

Pasang La: Which language can you speak and writing fluently? Tibetan or English?????
