In 1959, during the first Tibetan Uprising (see), the Dalai Lama fled to India along with his small escort and later took up residence in Dharamsala, a guest of China's enemy-neighbor, India. He met with the then Prime Minister of India, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, who agreed to provide shelter to Tibetan refugees escaping communist China.
