    Wiki title is Greater India and you conveniently make it Nehrus. And as from the excerpt above, that very article says Nehru didnt subscribe to the idea.

    In the future (and I mean well over 50 years from now), we might see a "Greater India" or "Akhand Bharat" due to India's rise as a superpower and the economic dependence of India's neighbors on India (if you look at the list of Top 20 failed states, you will notice that many of them are India's neighbors).

    But at the current time I think it is best to focus on India itself and developing our own country, so we become a model of South Asian progress.

    There is very little chance of that happening.

    In fact the chances of an independent Baluchistan or Pakthunistan are much greater than an indepedent Tibet.

    No, we don't dream of Greater India. I do however dream of reintegration of West Punjab, Sindh and East Bengal in my lifetime.

    Tibet can only become independent if the PRC central government is toppled. As long as CCP is in power they will never allow Tibet to secede, even if they have to kill a hundred thousand civilians.

    Well, you seem confident :D

    Explain how you think Tibet will gain independence.

    ROC claims Tibet too. It also claims outer Mongolia. PRC's toppling won't change that. Tibet's sovereignty is completely in Beijing's hands, and with the influx of Hans into Tibet, I don't foresee that happening. I think Tibetans should accept Chinese control the way it is, while Beijing should protect Tibetan culture and religious practices. Tibetan people should be exempt of inter-provincial movement laws (they should be allowed to freely move to any province for work or business).

    I agree, that's why I said Tibet has vey little chance of independence.

    We should free Baluchistan and Pakhtunistan before Tibet.

    Historically Baloachistan favored Greater India. Congress used to have a huge support base in Quetta. Sadly the situation has changed. If South Asia is reorganized politically, there's sentiment for a greater Baloach state combining Baloach provinces of Pakistan and Iran.

    China doesn't have such great long-term target, what a pity.

    The Chinese always have long term strategies... I'm sure your politburo has a strategy chalked out for the next 50 years atleast...

    Thread started on a wrong notion with twisted title and reference. More like a flame as we call it. What followed was not very inspiring either. Thread closed.
