  • Drokpo Karpo: A Dispute between Ladakh and Tibet
    June 5, 2020
    The relations between Ladakh and Kashmir have recently been the subject of hot discussions in the Indian media. At the time of India’s Independence, there was only one dispute between the Wazarat of Ladakh and Western Tibet (Ngari Khorsum).

  • Reopening the Old Borders
    July 29, 2019
    We are often hearing questions about what could be suggested as possible Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) between India and China.
    I give here a few suggestions for the border in East Ladakh.
    One could add joint patrolling in ‘semi’ disputed areas; by ‘semi’ disputed, I mean areas where both parties agree on the area disputed (which is often not the case).
  • Tibet and the ‘Larger Issues’ 
    August 12, 2018
    Recently the Dalai Lama made some remarks on Jawaharlal Nehru and the Partition of India.
    Without going into the (unnecessary) controversy, it is interesting to see the views of the first Prime Minister of Independent India on what he called the ‘Tibetan émigrés’ in the early 1950s, three months after signing (without informing the Tibetans), The Agreement on trade and intercourse between Tibet Region of China and India (infamously remembered as the ‘Panchsheel Agreement’.

  • The Happy People of Ngari?
    May 20, 2018
    Ngari or Western Tibet has been in the Chinese news in recent weeks.
    It looks like a concerted effort from the Communist propaganda to promote the region bordering Ladakh, Himachal and Uttarakhand.
    And first of all ‘promote’ the happiness of the people in these borders areas.
    May 18, Xinhua published an article about The Happy life of a senior in Ali Prefecture of Tibet. ‘Ali’ is ‘Ngari’ (as the Chinese have difficulties to pronounce the ‘Ng’, it becomes ‘A’).
    The Chinese news agency mentions “a two-story house equipped with all kinds of household appliances where Cama Ciren [Karma Tseten], a 72-year-old Tibetan and his wife live.”
    Karma stays there for the past 34 years, says the article.
    Interestingly, the village is located in Tashigang in Gar County of Ngari Prefecture, near the Indian border (on the other side is Demchok in Ladakh).

  • Relocation in Tibet
    “Do Not forget the Original Intention; Keep the Mission in Mind” is the new slogan used by President Xi Jinping, China’s new Great Helmsman to unify the masses behind the Communist Party of China (CPC); in the recent past Xi has been trying to build an idealist society, strictly under the Party’s rules. The Party’s mission for 2020 is to provide a materially decent life to all in the Middle Kingdom, more particularly in the restive areas of Tibet and Xinjiang. In order to fulfill its objectives, Beijing has started in a massive relocation scheme in Tibet, redrawing the demography of India’s borders which will affect India’s defence, directly or indirectly.
