Humiliated?

Posted in Foreign Policy, India and World, Relations with neighbours by dullar on March 30, 2008

The whole issue of Tibet and its fallout on India has yet again proved that India is a soft state. What else following instances indicate?

1) Indian envoy summoned and reprimanded in the dead of the night in Beijing for the so called breach  of security in the Chinese Embassy in New Delhi.

2) Indian embassy was not invited for the foreign journalist’s tour to Tibet. It was an attempt of isolating India. Its likeBeijing saying that it doesnt matter for us if you visit Lhasa or not, we know your sympathetic position vis-a-vis Dalai Lama and the ongoing protest. We dont even care if you think that you have any opinion or not.

3) Chinese authorities hinting to New Delhi that the Olympic torch can by-pass this country if the foolproof security cover was not provided for the same. Again the credibility of the security is something which will be decided by Chinese authority and not by the Home ministry in India.

It feels like that India has not come out of the trauma and fear of the events that unfolded the tragedy of 1962 and like we have vowed to be always like never feel guilty of being cowed down by the communist neighbour even if its all such intentions has been proved beyond doubt to everybody from India to US and Russia to Europe. It feels like we are trying to become Asian economic elephant but we are still in some sense political chicken.
