Bimal Gurung was returning home from boarding school when he was turned away by the Bhutanese army. He fled to India, then Nepal where he has been living as a refugee for more than 20 years. He hasn’t seen or heard from his family since. His experience led him to alcohol dependency but today he is clean and a volunteer counselor to other refugees.

Cartoonist Badiucao offers a comment on Ai Weiwei’s surprise appearance on a CCTV-1 late night sketch show last week. While the appearance was brief—Ai uttered no more than three words—Badiucao sees the high-profile dissident’s image making it on to state television as akin to flipping the Party the bird. Watch Ai’s appearance here.
