Organizers of the tournament said the event celebrated the role of Tibetan women, whoave also been at the forefront of Tibetan struggle.
"As Tibetan women I think there is so much that we can celebrate. As refugees we have so much to feel bad and feel sad about. But as Tibetan women who have endowed the suffering, who have carried the struggle for last 50 years, I think there is so much for us to celebrate and enjoy. That's why we have organized a sports occasion so that we can celebrate each other's presence," said Dhardon, TWA executive member.
"On the occasion of Mother's Day this year we were asked to take part in this basketball tournament," said Tsering, a player.
Mother's Day was created at the start of the 20th century as a day for each family to honour its mother. (ANI)
