LHASA, April 7 (Xinhua) -- Tsephel, 92 years old, lives in Qangka Township of Lhunzhub County of Lhasa. Born in Gyaca County of Shannan, he and his parents became serfs, with barely enough food and clothes. After his parents passed away, Tsephel began a life of rove. "Once caught by the serf owner, one may be deprived of his eyes, ears, hands or feet," said Tsephel.

After the democratic reform, Tsephel became a farm worker, devoting himself to production. After retirement, he has been enjoying time with his grandsons at home and receiving abundant pension every month.
