Bimal Dey's journey across Tibet, from Gangtok to Lhasa and Mansarovar when he was a teenager, holds a special place in his heart. "The Last Time I Saw Tibet" recounts his adventures during this trip in 1956: a time when Sikkim was not yet part of India, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama still ruled in Tibet although Chinese presence was marked, and Indians were not banned from travelling there. Many years later, in the eighties, the author would have the privilege of visiting Mansarovar twice, but he always hankered to travel alone across Tibet, a wish that was eventually granted by the Chinese authorities only at the cusp of the new millennium.
