 Dalai Lama to be Discharged Today
Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama, who underwent a gall bladder surgery at a hospital here, will be discharged today.

The Nobel laureate underwent a laproscopic surgery to remove stones in the gallbladder. He was admitted to Sir Gangaram Hospital last Thursday.

In August, the 73-year-old Dalai Lama was admitted to a Mumbai hospital and underwent tests for abdominal discomfort.

Doctors advised him to cancel a planned trip to Europe and rest, saying he was suffering from exhaustion.

The Dalai Lama normally spends several months a year travelling the world to teach Buddhism and highlight the Tibetans'' struggle for greater freedom in China.
