Tenzin Taklha (Joint Secretary, Dalai Lama’s Office) said :
His Holiness often describes himself as son of India and it’s only natural that his website is made available in Hindi too. Now Hindi-speaking people will have online access through the Dalai Lama’s thoughts and other related news. Both the English and Hindi websites would be updated simultaneously.
The 77-year old Tibetan exiled monk Tenzin Gyatso, has 7 Million followers on Twitter and 5 Million fans on Facebook. Currently India is the home to 100,000 Tibetans and the government-in-exile which has never won recognition from any country. In 1959, occupying Chinese troops overpowered the Tibetan national uprising in Lhasa and forced the spiritual leader to get exile in Indian and neighbor countries along with his followers.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama, in a latest article on his website told :
I’ve had no modern education, so my knowledge compared to yours amounts to zero, but I have observed that many of the problems we face today are of our own creation. Because we created them, we must also have the ability to reduce or overcome them.
