Elderly Buddhist women wait to catch a glimpse of Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama in Tawang, in the northwestern corner of Arunachal Pradesh state on November 9, 2009. The Dalai Lama held a mass audience with tens of thousands of devotees November 9 on a 'non-political' visit to a region near India's border with Tibet that has drawn shrill protests from China.
