    Something that most Indians in the forum world thing. India should use Tibet as a weapon to fight China. This coming out from a Tibetan activist, shows how much the Tibetans too support India in its defense.
    Though it may sound selfish, but it suits either side to use each other in the fight against China.

    Excellent piece. Just the perfect answer to those who cry foul over 'India encouraging separatists in China'.

    And just the perfect ending excerpt too. Personally to me, it makes a lot of sense to declare Tibet as a free state for multitude of reasons. India - China border dispute is not going to be solved thru negotiations & discussions as both countries will not cede even an inch of terrain to the other. By declaring Tibet as free state, we take the air out of the balloon.

    Secondly, China has never shied away from portraying Kashmir as a separate country. There is no reason why we should not reciprocate.

    Third, it forms a sort of cushion between China & India in case of a real ground/air attack from China & can be extremely handy in case of a full blown war. This may sound selfish, but very practical. Also Xinjiang not being very far from the border, if they get some Indian support too, can form a very effective protective shield for India.

    Fourth, I do not see any potential fallouts of this move even if it is bound to attract China’s wrath. The trade & everything with China will go on as it is today, since we can see that the trade with Pakistan has remained unaffected even after so many years of rivalry. And this move will certainly push back belligerent China a little & hopefully the war rhetoric will ease from their side.

    I hope China is more anxious to annex Taiwan than Tawang into its province. I hope Taiwan does not allow that to happen that easily neither Uncle Sam.

    They have very big ambitions like becoming super power by defeating US and control the world economy.

    I dont think China will put an end to these Ambitions by waging a war with India. I am not sure whether India will be in a position to win a full-scale war against China but definitely India can give a big blow for any Chinese aggression.

    Even though English won the WW II, They lost everything to the Americans. It took 60 years to clear their Debt.

    In addition to that we should make Tawang as the home of Dalai Lama and the exiled Tibeteans... If they try to invade AP... first they have to attack the Tibeteans and it will be a global call and the news will spread very fast.

    well, I am somewhat tired of such naive articles....

    why not just ask Indian government to recognize the independence of Tibet ,if you really like messing CHina tooooo much?

    just stood up against Chinese tyranny bravely ? then you great India will have enough pliitical capital to defy those cowards such as yankees and erupeans....

    come on ,brave indian people....stand up and drive Chinese evil rule out of Tibet ....let the whole world know that CHina is just a paper tiger or not?.....and great India is the most shining town of democracy in the world.....

    Exactly, here on this forum it's all for Tibetan independance. In the actual world of governance, India is all for Chinese ownership of Tibet.

    why don't you ask Tibetans who they want governing them, and Indians are completely against Chinese occupation of Tibet no matter what the Indian government pretends.

    Our successive Govts have been naive to believe that all the nations are essentially peaceful in nature. They thought that once India accepts Tibet as a part of China, Sino-Indian relations will improve. But the true face of China, as a hegemonic power, came to fore. And the Indian public is more aware of China's intentions now than in the past.

    India and the world has to understand that rogue nations and hegemonic powers cannot be satisfied by giving in to their whims and fancies. Giving Kashmir to Pakistan wont satisfy Pakistan, Gifting away Tawang wont satisfy China. Talk of friendship in the face of bullying will be interpretted as weakness and the bayonet will be dig deeper.

    Because, here we have the freedom of not thinking in line of the Government. We may not be able to fight and drive China out of Tibet (at least in near future)but that does not change the reality that Chaina came and occupied Tibet.

    Your nut gone loose for sure..... Send all the Uyghrus to Labor Camps.... and see the results.

    I hope the boost of economic growth has gone to the head for the Han Chinese people, by the way a cup of bee honey is good but not :dfi-1: this thought.

    Torture is unfortunate and not uncommon. It happens in China I'm sure, but I'm sure as well that it happens in the US and its outsourced interrogation centers and I'm also sure that Indian police use torture on a daily basis. To single out China as if it's the only one is untrue.

    the west were the bioggest hypocrites in the tibet episode

    that "global call " will be worth nothing . the anglo-saxon west is goo d at giving limited humanitarian aid to refugees while at the same time locating their factories in communist china - a perfectly hypocritical response.

    actually, I agree India should recognize Tibet as an independent country, because I hate the Chinese propaganda saying people in other countries are friendly to China. Chinese don't believe CCP about a lot things but they believe about this one.
    By recognizing Tibet, India can help to wake Chinese people up about the true reality in the international relationship, after they feel the pressure they will realize the only way out is to build China stronger, and be more forcus, with will prepare Chinese mindset for China being a real superpower

    Frankly, in this day and age, small and peaceful countries like Tibet cannot exist on their own. HH Dalai Lama recognises this and has been asking only for autonomy, but the insecure CPC has refused even that and instead resorted to demonising the pontiff. So, India should declare Tibet as protectorate of India or even as an autonomous part of India. That would be an aggressive stance and deflect the attention from Arunachal Pradesh and focus on Tibet which is rightfully the real issue.

    I dont understand what are the possible repercussions for such a move. What could China do to India if such a stand were taken by India? Would China make a war?
