The Lad: A Short History
The Lad was the third of the seven Lad family groups and the oldest of the nine traditional peoples of Tibet, which has about 1.8 million people.
In the 19th century, the Lad and the Mongols, as the two dominant groups, were on opposite sides of a civil war in Tibet.
The two groups had lived peacefully in harmony for a long time.
But the war ended in 1945, and the two peoples settled into peace.
The Lad language was spoken and studied by both the Chinese and Tibetan communities.
Today, there are about 200,000 Lad speakers in the world.
The name Lad derives from a Sanskrit word meaning “light.”
The Lad is the oldest language of Tibet and was spoken by many groups in the region before the Mongol invasion.
The people who speak Lad speak in a unique dialect of the Tibetan dialect.
The dialect was brought to Tibet from India by Chinese traders in the 18th century and is still spoken today by Tibetans.
The language has a long history of migrations and dialect changes.
It has a strong and distinctive sound and sounds similar to many other languages spoken in the Tibetan plateau, including the Malay language, a mix of Cantonese and Sanskrit, and Chinese, an amalgam of Tibetan and Cantonesan.
Some of the Lad speakers say the language is not as important as other languages, like the Bhojpuri language spoken in Assam.
The ancient Lad language is a blend of many different languages and dialects, and Lad speakers believe it has special qualities, according to a 2009 survey conducted by the Lad Institute.
The linguist who conducted the study said Lad speakers have different views on the history of Tibet.
“I don’t think it’s a unique language,” said Rupa Subramanian, a professor at the Lad University in Chittagong.
“The Lad is not the only language in Tibet, but it’s the oldest.
There are a lot of languages in the Himalayas that predate Lad.
Some other languages predate it too.”
But Subramani said the Lad has “very strong and rich” sound.
“It’s the only dialect that has survived over centuries.
Lad is a Tibetan language, not a Chinese language,” she said.
Lad also has an ancient and rich history of contact with other languages.
According to the Lad Bible, Lad was introduced to Tibet by Chinese travelers in the 19st century.
“A lot of people say that Lad is an ancient language,” Subramania said.
“They say it’s very rich, but they have no knowledge of what it’s like to speak Lad.
They’re not educated on what it sounds like to have a Lad dialect in a Tibetan dialect.”
In fact, Lad speakers also have mixed opinions on Lad.
“Lad is very different from Tibetan, but I think the same should be true of the other Lad languages,” said Lhamo Lama, a Lad speaker from the town of Khandang in the northwestern province of Sichuan.
“We have different sounds and pronunciation.
I think Lad has a very strong sound, but we have different dialects and sounds.”
The two peoples spoke different languages before the civil war, and some people even claim that the two languages have different origins.
But when the civil strife ended in 1946, Lad and Mongols returned to the peace treaty with China.
Subramanya said the civil peace treaty is still valid and can be renewed.
“When they came back, they were very happy,” Subraan said.
However, he also said that Lad has lost its power and is now being used as a tool of oppression.
“There are different opinions on what this treaty is, and what it is really doing,” he said.
The Dalai Lama said that the Lad language has its own history and tradition.
“In Tibet, we have two kinds of language: Lad and Tibetan.
There’s also a third language, called Mongol,” he explained.
The Mongol language has been spoken for some 500 years and was introduced by Mongol merchants from India in the 14th century.
The Mongols conquered Tibet from the Qing Dynasty in the 17th century after killing its first emperor, the Mongol leader Genghis Khan.
The first Tibetan king, Tsultrim Tsathophala, lived in the Qing dynasty for three generations and was killed by Genghys Khan in 1871.
The next Dalai Lama, who died in 1997, was the last to be re-born in Tibet after he was exiled by the Chinese in 1959.
“After the Dalai Lama’s death, there was a lot more interest in Tibetan language and culture and Tibetan culture.
And now there is a lot that the Dalai has done for the Tibetans and Tibetans have a great interest in what he has done,” Lama said.
Many Lad speakers are also concerned about the current tensions between China and India.
“What is happening in India is not
