On Friday, 16 June 2017, Mr. Ugen Choephel, one of our senior Tibetan teachers passed away at the age of 61 after a brief illness. The news saddened the whole school and came as a complete shock to everyone of us. As soon as we heard about his sudden unfortunate demise, a prayer was held in the school hall and the staff members rushed to his staff quarter to console and help the deceased family. The school’s Staff Welfare Committee took the main responsibilities under the guidance of the school authorities and distributed the work among the staff members. Every one whole heartedly stood by the family in this unfortunate mishap.

It was finally today that his body was cremated at the auspicious and sacred place of Buddhist called ‘Tso Pema’, Rewalsar in Mandi District as per the Buddhist rituals.

He will always be remembered by each and every one of us here at TCV School Chauntra. Our heartfelt condolence goes to the family!
