Show Summary Details


Phüntso Wangye moved in with Ngawang Kesang to make it easier to plan their next moves. They discussed the future with Sherap, and decided that if they wanted to begin their operations in Kham, they should establish relations with other communist parties and seek their help. Ngawang had started working for Kesang Tsering and was off on trading trips for him, so Phüntso was left to wait for Moscow to respond to their request. Weeks turned into months and there was no word from the embassy. Ngawang resolved to make contact with the Chinese communists and seek their assistance. He decided to go back to Kham. Before Kesang Tsering died, Ngawang told Phüntso that he had changed some of his opinions since the early days and that he no longer had any animosity toward the Communist Party.
