Passing Away at an Early Age
Liu Manqing left “footprints all over the far east, and was an expert in Chinese, Tibetan, Mongolian, Japanese, English, Indian, and Latin. With all of her talent and wisdom, she still managed to remain modest, amiable, and enterprising. Therefore, it is fair to say that she was an extraordinary woman in this Oriental land.” She made significant contributions toward maintaining normal relations between the local government in Tibet and the Central Government, safeguarding the unification of the motherland and promoting ethnic unity. However, illness took her young life ruthlessly, leaving the world to grieve deeply.
