India – Attention Seeking Indian Politics and Critics 

Padmini Arhant

Attention: Attention Seeking Indian Politics and Critics 

जब कोई देश डूबता है तो वो मिली भगत के कारण होता है। इसका असर बहुत भारी पड़ता है उन सभी पर जो किसी भी प्रकार इस में भाग लिए हों ।इस सच्चाई को कभी भी नकारना नहीं चाहिए। ऐसे करने वाले और भी दुःख संकट गम्भीर अवस्था पाएँगे।

Prime Minister Narendra Damodardas Modi having miserably failed the nation and people, the victim of his draconian policies should step down from power effective immediately to save the nation from further turmoil and misery.

With reference to article India – China Stand-off Resolution published on this site,

https://www.padminiarhant.com/india-china-standoff-resolution-in-ladakh/

The issue as usual manipulated to suit politics in the face of declining situation in every frontier by those in actual power on public funded salary, perks and privileges besides attack brigade in mainstream media, social media, IT sleeper cells using live podcasts pretending to be expatriates…and above all entertainment industry ever at politics disposal for relentless trashing, spewing venom much to own peril. 

As the author of the above published article, I categorically and explicitly specify that by no means the proposal indicate or suggest China to retain present status quo in territorial annexations albeit enabled by the present and past administrations despite my forewarning about China’s transgression going back in 2009 and 2010 that was ignored then and now by governments alternating to power.

The cowardly nuances and insinuations constantly directed at me are baseless and do not serve anyone’s personal and political vendetta against me rather backfire at them reminding them of Karmic effects realized by many treading on that path thus far.

The false interpretation of the above article stands corrected once and for all.  I have maintained all along unlike Indian politics and critics’ exploiting crises to own advantage at every opportunity.

I reiterate my stance that China’s withdrawal from occupied Indian territories seized in 1962 warfare and prior the invasion and occupation of then independent Tibet in the Himalayan region is critical in permanent resolution of the embroiled battle.

Chinese leadership exercising discretion in view of the tremendous impact on PLA forces experiencing medical problems and chronic health conditions demanding evacuation from the Himalayan heights is prudent and calls for wisdom and pragmatism in ending the standoff and agree to the realistic approach enunciated above.

Unless the Indian political establishment in unison having received political funding through however channels in China are in quid pro quo with China’s CCP leadership Xijinping for such settlement i.e. agreement to current status quo allowing aggressor China to annex Indian states and territories for personal gains, which directly hold them responsible for egregious decision and treason that are norm in the country accustomed to insiders facilitated foreign invasion and colonization until today.

As for the Indian critics posing as journalist for leading Indian or foreign press and others using their platform viz. press and social media could always express what they deem right on border demarcations and several other reservations they hold in resolving the ongoing confrontation in the 18,000 feet altitude challenging survival of lives even before the full fledged military warfare that obviously to be averted bearing dire consequences upon militarily fierce two nations – China and India with nuclear armament facing off in the treacherous terrains.

It is best to aim at the real enemy endangering freedom and existence i.e. China’s CCP authorized PLA incursion instead of wasting time, energy and resource in profane verbal assaults against someone i.e. me especially when I’m not obligatory or mandatory to be the crusader.

Get on the social media and use your entertainment industry to convey your message to China and your government in New Delhi as you are engaged to launch missiles against me regardless of the distance. In doing so, India’s suppressed and oppressed democracy could perhaps be revived to liberate the nation and overwhelming subjugated population.

Thank you.

South and South East Asia – End of Communism

September 12, 2020

South and South East Asia – End of Communism 

Padmini Arhant

The imminent end of Communism in China would lead to the following development;

Democratic China – the real functional People’s Republic not in name only but in reality. The people’s representatives elected not nominated and imposed upon citizens by few wealthy elitists within Communist politburo in the current system. 

Independent Hong Kong  –  the democratic system restored with fair judiciary under Hong Kong jurisdictions not mainland China.

Free Independent Tibet – Independent nation with self -sovereignty and territorial integrity returned to pre-invasion in 1959.

Xinjiang Province – Autonomous territory would be liberated from mainland authority.

Independent Sovereign Taiwan – Recognition and acknowledgment of independent Taiwan with equal participation in all international organizations and body similar to other sovereign nations in the rest of the world.

Neighboring nations near and around China will be discussed with geopolitical dynamics and dimensions in the South and South East Asian region in due course.

Thank you.

Freedom and Individual Rights Not Exclusive

September 9, 2020

Freedom and Individual Rights are not Exclusive

Padmini Arhant

The misconceptions among ruling class in the world are one too many justifying their unjustifiable prejudice and injustice as way of life for victims in the seriously flawed dysfunctional system they control as entitlement.

Who is the ruling class?

The ruling class are those pulling the proxies strings and maintain absolute authority over anything and everything like finance, science, politics, economy, media, entertainment, religion and social structure comprising gender bias, race, faith, economic educational background discrimination in society.

The ruling class established hierarchy has 99% struggling to make ends meet and among them overwhelming majority are below poverty line.

The ruling class worst fear is fairness and equality for they consider that a major threat to their dominance.

They strive to keep those challenging status quo anonymous and failing that engage in character defamation, isolation. constant indignation and criminal involvement that otherwise subject ordinary citizens to fullest extent of law in any society.  The ruling class strategy involve pawns and fake members in politics, media, entertainment – the three key fields found useful in diversion and subversion of truth and reality.

How does the ruling class operate?

The ruling class operate incognito. They are in disguise via proxies and surrogates in politics, judiciary, law enforcement, media, entertainment, religion and main economy. The ruling class deployed crony contingency are bribed with political positions, monetary compensations and pseudo awards to represent them and cover up their heinous crimes beginning with abuse of power, authoritarianism masked as democracy ,  oppression, subjugation and blatant violation of others’ rights, all of which considered their prerogative.

What makes the ruling class survive despite global frustration and dissatisfaction with status quo?

The ruling class controlling communication and dissemination of information to public regarded central to keep population in the dark. The relentless efforts to deflect public attention from burgeoning issues like the pandemic consuming lives and paralyzing economy, soaring unemployment, lack of economic stimulus to revive business and employment opportunities across the spectrum, China’s aggression and transgressions on the borders and foreign frontiers…are the least concerns exacerbating citizens suffering and misery.

The ruling class primary goal is for 1% to flourish at the top and the rest 99% deteriorate to rock bottom even though the former existence and fortune dependent on the latter hard work in the work force and contribution as end consumer of merchandise and services enabling the rich becoming filthy rich in the inequitable income distribution.

Accordingly, the ruling class preference and legacy is to undermine 99% rights asserting supremacy in all domains viz. politics, economy, science, technology, media and entertainment…quelling dissent and rise of alternative choices in the heavily politicized mechanism.

What is the solution to break the tradition?

Rejecting ruling class impropriety and intolerance to anything related to 99% plight. Reclaim civil liberties, individual freedom and personal rights that are inalienable and yet taken for granted by the ruling class denying 99% the right to dissent and defense.

Reminding the ruling class on 99% core value and significance in economy, politics as voters and above all people constituting the nation and any society deserving fair access to earth’s resources that are mistaken as the ruling class private estate.

Freedom and individual rights including privacy and personal data are monetized for commercial and political gains among the lawless ruling class paradoxically presiding over law and order applicable only to law abiding citizenry letting the fox guard chickens den in the unruly untenable environment.

Citizens self-awareness and initiatives exercising discernment in retaining independence and freedom of choice rather than plain submission to ruling class ascendancy is the preliminary step towards emancipation.

Anything short of minimal recognition to personal liberty and rights inevitably empower ruling class in the already declining democracy.

Thank you.

India China LAC standoff Update

July 31, 2020

India China LAC standoff 

Update

Padmini Arhant

UpdateAccording to Indian army officers, China has expanded occupation with troop deployment along the north east region viz. Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand near Lipulekh Pass on Manasarovar route. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s hesitation to call out China by name in speeches until now is strange at best and paradoxical at worst in terms of BJP’s nationalist jingoism.

China’s continuous infiltration in Indian territory is reminiscent of 1962 scenario. At that time, Menon was fired for utter failure and lack of preparedness to defend India against aggressor China. 

India China LAC dispute escalated to new level  with China amassing troops along with boats at the contentious Pangong lake long been regarded Indian territory while disengagement claimed by both sides in political commentary. 

China’s ongoing penetration in Indian territory setting up tents and huts to accommodate large troop deployment in the Pangong Tso confirmed via satellite images contribute to anything but de-escalation of friction.

The core objective of the military commanders talks held on June 30th, 2020 and subsequent dialogue between Indian National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi on July 5th, 2020 submitted to reduce tension in eastern Ladakh. 

Beijing and PLA commanders default in honoring their commitment on de-escalation is a major credibility factor that China continues to suffer on all matter whether COViD19 pandemic or economic trade and military agreements exacerbating peace and diplomacy to nothing more than a formality. 

China’s latest unequivocal troop presence in Pangong Tso ridgeline at Finger 4 not 14 arguably obstruct withdrawal process expected  per high level military and political discussion in the past two months following unnecessary preventable loss of lives involving defense personnel on both sides that could have been averted by maintaining the respective boundary lines without encroachment. 

The political statements from India and China might be set on conciliatory tone to deter public awareness on actual situation in high altitude that is far from reality considering Beijing’s reluctance to retreat from the line of incursion. 

Chinese authorities protracted military undertakings in the Himalayas against India and multitude skirmishes in South China Sea amid COVID 19 health crises consuming lives globally with no end in sight to which Beijing is yet to acknowledge responsibility regardless of the contested origin i.e. Wuhan Institute of Virology or the wet market place in Wuhan city in China is an enormous challenge for Beijing. 

Not to mention the pandemic’s catastrophic impact on global economy including China.

Beijing leaderships together with PLA commanders recognition of the sprawling confrontation against neighbors near and far jeopardizing everything China gained in the last three decades on economic growth adding to military strength now used to threaten peace and stability in Asia and Asia Pacific reflect internal political turmoil and deflection of pandemic effects attracting global ire towards Beijing. 

Indian leaderships in New Delhi. PM Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval directing focus on containing the border issues demonstrating honest and credible actions in restoring India’s territorial integrity against China is the priority more than any other ideological religious debate besides controlling corona virus spikes in the country.

Hong Kong – National Security Law

July 8, 2020

Hong Kong – National Security Law

Padmini Arhant

China Communist Party ( CCP) implementation of National Security law in Hong Kong is counterproductive and detrimental to China though Beijing defends the action as an important measure towards protection and stability in the once autonomous peaceful Hong Kong.

The foreign media projects National Security law in Hong Kong as the end of Hong Kong.

Whereas the reality is Beijing’s hard line policy aimed at severe crack down on pro-democracy movement forcing them to abandon freedom and democracy aspirations with participants expected to face life imprisonment in the infamous black jail in mainland China or disappearance into oblivion actually hurt China more than Hong Kong’s democracy campaign.

The real question should be;

Is it the beginning of the end of China’s rise to economic power with the execution of National Security Law in Hong Kong?

That is precisely where Beijing is heading in turning the tide towards itself upsetting the applecart reflected in Beijing’s broken promise on respecting and honoring Hong Kong’s autonomy in One country two systems pledge on June 30th, 1997 assuring Hong Kong citizens and international community with Beijing’s pledge to leave Hong Kong’s political, economic and judicial independence intact.

However, Beijing miscalculating ramifications in many fronts starting with economy, political and critically international relations is the imminent setback despite fifty three nations, the majority of whom are financially indebted to China in the Belt and Road initiative and One Silk Road infrastructure and economic deals binding them to Beijing’s any proposal.

At the same time, Beijing also need to recognize that remaining nearly 150 countries in the world either not in agreement or necessarily approve the latest development in Hong Kong. The response is confirmed in their abstinence and absence from the list of 53 states support to Beijing on National Security law in Hong Kong.

When two thirds world population represented by their governments are standing by Hong Kong’s youth and other age group in their struggle for democracy, civil rights, individual freedom and complete independence,

China is isolating itself from the world in imposing laws that are against human rights and democratic principles obviously never holding any value as far as Beijing’s territorial annexations and exerting authority on sovereign states and autonomous regions are concerned with China much to loose than gain in tightening the grip on Hong Kong and encroachment on neighbors’ border and territory.

Instead Beijing prioritizing economic revival  and containing internal problems within communist politburo as well as nationwide in China is the only option to crises management unlike multi-faceted military activities pursuing hegemonic goals in South and South East Asia including political control over Hong Kong exacerbating China’s status quo.

Hong Kong’s younger generation pro-democracy quest is legitimate inalienable right that could no longer be denied or suppressed by local or external authority in and outside the island state.

The citizens’ individual rights and civil liberty are non-negotiable. The decision to seize Hong Kong’s autonomy by force and armed intervention endanger position of those authorizing such violence and undemocratic means to extend unlawful carte blanche assertion.

The road to peace and emancipation may be treacherous but those determined to reach destination never fail in their resolve especially when Hong Kong’s pro-democracy non-violent civil disobedience is a positive freedom loving endeavor preparing to sacrifice their life for present and future dignified existence in society.

Hong Kong pro-democracy rights deserve acknowledgment and affirmation with global solidarity behind brave young hearts and minds wanting to be free and independent in their domain without having to fear authorities exercising unbridled exertion of rule such as the controversial national security law.

Beijing’s withdrawal and repeal of recent maneuvers in diverse frontiers would demonstrate China’s sincerity towards peace and security that in return deliver progress and prosperity.

Thank you.

India China Stand Off at LAC in Ladakh

July 4, 2020

India China Stand Off at LAC in Ladakh

Padmini Arhant

The conventional wisdom recognize that in politics and warfare, TRUTH is the first casualty and remains so to suit authorities’ convenience. 

The recent casualties suffered on both sides neither disclosed the incident actual date though Indian media and government decided on June 15th in synchrony with foreign press and diktat contrary to the unfortunate event happening way earlier. Similarly the victims statistics were also not reported accurately with 20 soldiers martyrdom acknowledged when there were at least 32 martyrs on Indian side as revealed on this site back on June 5th, 2020 beckoning attention.

As such politics and media having no credibility whatsoever, the deliberate omission is least surprising. The press touted as fourth column in Indian Constitution granting freedom to press and media in the hope of the news organizations and media house exercising autonomy in transparency engaged in the reverse role protecting political establishment and others from whom media house monetarily benefit while keeping the public in the dark or misinformed on all issues of people and national interest.

Furthermore, news outlets and media serving as internal and external forces’ major propaganda machinery targeting individuals like me with constant slander and slur ad hominem to satisfy ego and contempt is the norm.  Notwithstanding the practice diminishing ethical standards and journalism to lowest ebb. 

On the other hand, China’s state agency and spokespersons released haphazard statements on their fatalities in utter dismissal of armed forces deployment in inhospitable terrain paying dear price due to China’s Communist Party (CCP) and People Liberation Army (PLA) wanton aggression utilizing military activities to deflect domestic focus away from myriad challenges within country.

There is always more to it than meets the eye in matter concerning life and death of citizens like in the latest pandemic and defense personnel in war zones that continues to fall short on accountability among politics and media exerting control over information.

Confronting truth and reality is the litmus test on leadership demanding courage and integrity to accept responsibility on failures to safeguard lives with proactive and precautionary measures rather than converting others misfortune and tragedies to political advantage and commercial gains prevalent in politics and news media.

The consolidated contrived action to discredit truth in the report on 32 Indian soldiers casualties and  chinese armed regiment deaths published on this site far ahead of national and international concurrence is routine.

In light of concerted effort among national and international clique to invalidate factual presentations on this site and sub domain highlighted above, let here be no more redactions and discount in reporting facts and figures related to wars of any nature – the tense border standoff in the Himalayan region between India and China or the pandemic consuming lives and affecting thousands paralyzing life and economy much to national and global colossal damage.

Thank you.

China – Investment and Economic Policy

June 21, 2020

China – Investment and Economic Policy 

Padmini Arhant

China’s investment and economic policy worldwide in overt and covert Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and New Silk Road projects in 70 or more countries incentivized with building and modernizing infrastructure such as roads in strategic points facilitating China’s troops mobility and military installations, railways, airports and telecommunication sector besides exclusive access to these nations’ markets is Beijing’s direct economic infiltration evolving into debt entrapment for every one of these nations world over.

China’s strategic strengthening in locations central to United States is noteworthy.

In Asia-Pacific, Darwin port in Australia leased for 99 years to China. In October 2015, the Chineseowned Landbridge Group won the bid for 99 years lease of Port Darwin from Australia’s Central Territory government. Darwin served as military base from Australia, the important ally of United States.

Similarly, the State of Victoria in Australia is signatory to China’s Belt and Road Initiative complicating Australian federal authority’s ongoing trade disputes with Beijing.

In the middle east, China’s approach with yet another United States ally and partner in economic, political and hegemonic goals, none other than Israel granting China 99 years lease on Haifa Port replace United States position in West Asia and Mediterranean sea.

Europe – Germany – The Western State of North Rhine-Westphalia or NRW, is the most severely affected in the pandemic, the deadly corona virus from Wuhan, China. Over a third of all Germany’s cases are there per local news report.

Furthermore, “The State is home to the largest inland Port in the world, Duisburg Port. The Port is a key participant in the Chinese regime’s Belt & Road Initiative, China’s state-backed campaign for global dominance.”

The City’s Mayor once called it Germany’s “China City.”

The public data reveals that at least two-thirds of the world’s top 50 container ports are  owned by the Chinese or supported by Chinese investments, up from roughly 20% a decade ago. Those investments include terminals at major U.S. container ports in Los Angeles and Seattle – Oct 22, 2019. 

These reports confirming China’s foreign and economic policy reining control over crucial strategic sea ports and destinations could no longer be treated as mere economic interests.

China’s expansionism pose greater challenge to United States and the world at large.

China’s latest maneuver in the Himalayas against India and instigating client state Pakistan along side Kashmir border is a political tactic to deflect global attention from the pandemic – the corona virus COVID19 consuming lives at an alarming rate and causing economic collapse to which Beijing is responsible and accountable to the entire world population. 

Containing China:

The resignation among political and economy pundits on turning the wheels away from China in economic activities as non-starter and not doable citing China’s export orientation towards raw materials in agriculture and all consumer items, pharma ingredients, electronics parts and components and diverse product base comprising basic to intermediate goods necessary for final product is myopic ignoring the big picture that led to status quo on China’s economic and military superiority. 

What the world need to recognize is prior to China’s emergence as global manufacturing hub roughly three decades ago, there were options available to global consumers with goods manufactured locally as well as in different parts of the world and regions that enabled market economy competitiveness without dealing with currency fluctuations rather manipulation imposed by China in renminbi (China’s currency) devaluation as and when suitable in China’s favor.

China luring foreign investments appropriately offshore companies production units and factories with Chinese investments in infrastructure settings and human capital showing little or no concern to labor and environment laws created dependency on Chinese imports world over.

China’s consistent infringement on intellectual property rights and patent laws costing corporations and original providers in the economies immense financial liabilities bear no consequences to China resuming business as usual. The ethical implications and proprietary rights are considered meaningless and completely slighted by China in the absence of strong measures and actions from international consortium and governments prioritizing trade deals lagging in many aspects that has contributed to an established pattern and bad precedence in the global economy. 

The multinational companies along with big, medium and small businesses are incentivized with cheap oveurheads including production and labor costs making the affordability factor enticing to end consumer across the globe. 

Notwithstanding the grim reality on domestic workforce losing blue collar jobs and manufacturing sector to China. As a result, the employment opportunities shifted to China depleting domestic consumer power.

The economic drive from China promoting Made in China goods and services available worldwide hurt all economies regardless of GDP growth and consumer price index due to overwhelming majority in middle and lower income category in any economy deprived of steady income and economic development in the disproportionate advantage to China.

China exploiting privileges such as World Trade Organization membership, Most favored nation (MFN) status with United States, EU and other nations not reciprocated on even keel to nations having minimal to broad trade relations with China.

The trade imbalances with China yielding high deficits to trading partners in the global economy merit review and revision delivering fair and equal economic benefits unlike the current trend enhancing China’s economic gains and profitability. 

China’s perceived economic transformation attracting overseas companies to produce goods with partial or major Chinese financial capital that are invariably tied to Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is in line with Beijing’s political stance on CCP control over system. 

Chinese private sector investments within China and abroad are ultimately state owned assets proved in nationalization of foreign companies production units, brands and ideas neutralizing foreign investors’ stake in the bargain. 

The topic will resume with updates on containing China. 

Thank you.

Global Pandemic and China

June 12, 2020

Global Pandemic and China

Padmini Arhant

The corona virus SARS-CoV2 transformed into global pandemic continues to consume lives affecting millions worldwide with a catastrophic impact on every domestic economy producing aggregate effects on the global economy. The pandemic caused health disaster and economic collapse is immeasurable.

The corona virus(COVID-19) genome SARS-CoV2 identified as such by China and scientific community gaining rapid human to human transmissibility that was initially denied by Chinese authorities in Beijing and endorsed by World Health Organization at the outbreak onset is on the record. Furthermore, the travel ban that was critical to prevent the spread of the virus was also rejected in the earlier days by Beijing and WHO stating the virus posed no threat to humans and the world need not be alarmed in that respect. Again these are public statements from Beijing and WHO even after the virus explosion in Italy, Iran and South East Asia.

Although Beijing dispute the origin of the virus, the infection starting in Wuhan, Hubei Province in China and the Wuhan Institute of Virology located mere 300 feet from the wet market are factual data. The latest confirmation on SARS-COV2 virus genetic alteration research showing characteristics in correlation with the virus adaptability in humans affected in the current pandemic doesn’t appear to be a coincidence. No matter how these findings and new revelations are circumvented, at the end of the day the virus origin and source emerging from Wuhan, China is incontrovertible.

China’s virologist Shi Zengli referred to as the bat woman apparently for her prolonged study of corona virus in bats having become unavailable soon after the viral eruption now suddenly appearing following scientific determination on possible viral leak from Wuhan lab to defend indefensible position on all issues in Wuhan Institute of Virology and handling of the cataclysmic event quoting politicization of science perhaps at Beijing’s behest is a weak argument. The authorities in Beijing having ignored the lapses in the P4 lab and Wuhan Institute of Virology settings brought to attention by United States embassy in Beijing in January 2018 with little or no precautionary measures including secrecy on experiments in Wuhan lab directly concerning humanity cannot be slighted as sheer politics especially when the world is experiencing insurmountable health and economic crises due to the pandemic.

In fact, the authorities in Beijing had politicized the corona virus right from early detection in Wuhan until today letting that evolve into a pandemic crossing international borders and territories rather than allowing science, medicine and public health experts to address the problem there and then when it actually occurred in Wuhan, China.

Furthermore, Beijing’s aggressive tactics forcing medical professionals and scientists including virologists in Wuhan Institute of Virology to abscond from the scene while silencing whistleblower Dr. Li Wenliang to death bare evidence to Beijing’s hard line policy toward own population in Wuhan and rest of China.

Notwithstanding Chinese Communist party leadership politicizing SARS-COV2 known as COVID19 from the get go until now barring access to international experts in the assessment of virus origin and source.

There is no doubt that collaborators on experiments conducted in Wuhan lab facilitated and funded by those in Europe, United States and other western nations with fair knowledge about China’s political system granting carte blanche authority to China’s leadership without proper oversight in place on the operation, methods and various undertakings in Wuhan Institute of Virology share responsibility for resting decisions exclusively to China.

In general, science explorations into future assuming to protect humanity from potential health and survival hazards such as pandemics, the involvement without any preparedness for untowardness jeopardize humanity endangering lives and livelihoods prevalently encountered in the corona virus mass infection. Regardless, science bear serious responsibility and propriety to avert consequences snowballing beyond control like the present pandemic.

Beijing turning the tide against global citizenry, the corona virus victims either succumbed to the deadly virus or fighting the pandemic in the health and economic front exacerbate situation. Instead, Beijing extending full cooperation for an independent investigation and inquiry into SARS-COV2 i.e. COVID 19 cause and catalysts without political meddling from anywhere would substantiate any claims one way or another besides setting precedence to prevent pandemics in the future.

The corona virus detected and treated in Wuhan, China as far back as October 2019. However, Wuhan epidemic brought to world notice only in late January 2020 with lockdowns imposed in late March this year.

Political angle to the pandemic is the health calamity downing healthy economy coinciding with United States Presidential election year in 2020 when Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) has long been engaged in corona virus experiments since 2009.

On the global response to pandemic – the lockdowns in the absence of any prevention or cure to the highly infectious corona virus reportedly effective per public health officials and governments though not without economic costs and in many parts of the world drastically affecting the poor, fragile and the most vulnerable in health and economic terms largely attributed to financial constraints, insufficient resources considering demand surge in medical supplies and little or no economic relief from governments in certain economies leaving population to deal with hunger and lack of facilities amid extensive shelter-in-place order.

The migrant workers in different countries share a common problem and that was being stranded in locations without ways to support them and their families especially with the layoffs and no income forcing them to return home. In India for example, the migrant workers lost their lives in preventable causes of death and many from starvation, heat exhaustion and accidents in the course of long journey by foot back home covering as far as 1,500 km or more. These tragedies were avoidable had the migrant workers been able to leave earlier by available means of transport prior to lockdown with the central government giving adequate time rather than spur of the moment decision confining them to congested settings defeating the purpose of social distancing and close contact.

The extended lockdowns would be feasible had the governments made provisions to supply food and essential services including financial assistance to cover the entire period with factories and regular working conditions shut down in the wake of the pandemic. The easing of lockdowns based on local authorities reports on pandemic effects in their areas and accordingly setting guidelines for gradual reopening would be the initial steps towards economic revival. Any drastic measures always leads to undesirable outcome. Citizens on their part maintaining self-discipline in personal hygiene stated earlier like washing hands and feet, sanitizing commonly used surfaces, allowing 6 feet distance avoiding  personal contact when outside, monitoring personal health to remain healthy and active are all necessary to combat virus and keep illnesses at bay.

Now on China’s policy in mainland, Xin Jiang province, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Tibet, Nepal, India, South China Sea and other territories facing the Communist Party’s authoritarianism is a matter of grave concern. China’s rise to economic power status is a consolidation of local population hard work, global consumers contribution and western powers overarching privileges granted to Communist Party in Beijing contradictory to western stance on communism and socialism imposing sanctions against other nations lasting over decades typically enriched China’s politburo members and multinational companies representing the top 1% in global society.  

Hong Kong – Beijing agreed to Hong Kong’s autonomy under one country two systems recognizing the island as an independent territory with own legislative assembly, rule of law, judiciary, trade and economic relations with the rest of the world including China on autonomous basis until now. China’s broken promise in the introduction of national security law defining pro-democracy movement as extremism and going further in labeling any future attempts on democratic rights as terrorism and sedition is clear human rights violation for a nation presiding over the same issues from other parts of the world as a permanent member of United Nations Security Council with veto power. China’s  contradiction in this respect is a serious flaw beckoning Beijing authorities unconditional acknowledgment of Hong Kong’s autonomy. China honoring the residents democratic rights is the path to peaceful resolution on Hong Kong independence.

Similarly in mainland and Xin Jiang province, China – Beijing’s crackdown on non-violent political dissidents in mainland and Uighur Muslims plight in the supposedly autonomous Xin Jiang province has attracted international condemnation with situations only deteriorating as time goes by with no hope for freedom of speech. In Uighur Muslims’ case, the internment camps enduring torture and all sorts of abuse denying foreign press any access to view their conditions in isolation tarnish China’s image. The fundamental changes beginning with individual rights, political freedom, freedom of press and other basic human rights in every aspect are imperative for real progress in China.

Taiwan – Beijing asserting rights over sovereign Taiwan as China’s territory falls under the same category as territorial annexation by force. Taiwan is an independent nation with democratically elected leadership, President Tsai Ing-Wen having been re-elected to second term in office. Taiwan’s status as a free democratic state is a long standing position that cannot be subverted under threat or political intrusion.

Tibet – the Buddhist nation though regarded an autonomous region under China, the reality is otherwise. Tibet was once an independent nation that was aggressively invaded and taken over by neighboring China. Tibet has an elected government in exile formally referred to as Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) headed by President Lobsang Sangay, the lawful democratic governing body to govern Tibet. Beijing’s claim on Tibet is inexplicable. Tibet independence from China is quintessential for the latter’s interpretation of autonomy with sovereign statehood. Tibet was a free country. Ever since occupation in 1959, the Tibetan population are subject to enormous suffering with culture and civilization completely wiped out under China. Time for Tibet liberation from People Liberation Army (PLA) and Beijing’s control in China ending the decades old sovereign subjugation.

Nepal – the proud Himalayan nation at the foothills of the highest peak Mt.Everest, the heavenly abode of God Shiva with Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Gautam Buddha is unfortunately landlocked between  China and India. Nepal is compelled to contend with wanton skirmishes and territorial seizures considering authoritarian leaderships in both China and India sharing common aspirations especially towards neighbors regarded weak and vulnerable. Nonetheless, Nepal possess abilities to deal with challenges in the shadow of holy heritage, the majestic Himalayan premise.

India –  China having previously annexed approximately 38,000 sq.km Aksai Chin in Ladakh and reportedly entered the region across the Line of Actual Control (LAC) recently surrounding India in all directions from west in Ladakh,  north and northeast viz. Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim and Assam and,

In south, reports confirm China having seized the island strip in Indian territory off Maldives in Indian Ocean pouring millions of pounds sand in preparation for submarine base are significant encroachment and invasion of foreign land, in this instance India. China and India have been drawn into warfare earlier in 1962, 1967…and were at the brink of escalation in Doklam border standoff near Bhutan in 2017. These incursions and invasions characterize China’s hegemony against Nuclear India and other neighbors in the region. In other security issues related to India, China’s empathy to Pakistan based terror networks extended when China was the only country among the 15-member UNSC to have opposed the ban on Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar despite the terror group’s terrorism against India.

China carried out these activities while Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi hosted the Chinese Premier Xi Jinping on several occasions reminiscent of Gujarat days when the former Chief Minister entertained Chinese investments in Gujarat and all over India upon assuming office as Prime Minister. India’s trade deficit with China is $57.4 billion per public data given opaqueness on both sides of the government in revealing the latest figure. India’s earlier trade surplus $3.9 billion against Hong Kong reversed into $2.7 billion trade deficit in 2018 following Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visits to India.

China has consistently been the beneficiary against India accessing Indian market in trade and economic deals. In return India received China’s military interventions via troops deployment covering all sides of the Indian territory. Additionally, China’s overt and covert operations in north eastern states luring Indian citizens to Beijing’s economic incentives laden with political agenda are some of many omissions on the Indian government oversight.

Chinese leaderships decision on immediate withdrawal of troops, artillery and military assets from the current positions within, near and around India is paramount and remains the determining factor for China’s recovery from internal economic turmoil, pandemic containment and political turbulence in Communist party politburo.

China has the opportunity to alleviate unnecessary tensions with India. The two nations as ancient civilizations has much to benefit from each other in mutual growth and development that inarguably requires trust and reliable partnership without any surprises such as the ongoing border intrusion and military posturing in the Himalayas and across Indian boundary in the region.

The elephant and dragon dance is possible upon the dragon, the mythical character in ancient legend renounce emitting fire endangering self and all around. On the contrary, the elephant existing since time immemorial worshipped in Hindu, Buddhist religion and offshoots proved priceless in living and beyond for many attributes is testimony to peaceful co-existence in the habitat.

South-China Sea – the increased clashes in international waters between China and ASEAN countries viz. Vietnam after the Vietnamese fishing boat drowning linked to China’s interception, Malaysia reportedly confronted by China near Malaysian oil rig facility, Philippines intimidated by China restricting local fishing and availing marine resources in archipelago. Japan has long standing territorial dispute with China over Senkaku Islands dispute, or Diaoyu Islands dispute respectively. Tiaoyutai Islands is contested between China and Taiwan.

Needless to say United States patrol in South China Sea unwelcome and perceived as interference by China in the overall international collision in Asian waters.

The nations worldwide burdened with pandemic originating in Wuhan, China enforcing economic shut down has inflicted phenomenal losses that are irreversible in terms of fatalities, a staggering 388,000 and still rising and 6.6 million affected right now from the deadly virus cannot be written off as benign incident. The pandemic generated humongous economic liabilities depriving billions from livelihoods and driving businesses into insolvency is historic and expected to prolong over a period of time until economic revival and sustainability.

The global citizens as prime consumers of Made in China goods and services are naturally frustrated and feel betrayed by Beijing and World Health Organization’s joint lapses and malfeasance in withholding facts and numbers on the virus victims at the start of the pandemic.

Beijing might succeed in winning favors from certain governments, organizations, multinational companies and those willing to appease China’s Leaderships at any level.

The average citizens as retail buyers buying goods manufactured in China instrumental in China’s economic empowerment hold the key to Beijing’s present and future.

Hence, China’s political, economic, strategic, military and social transformation conforming to individual freedom, free speech, free press, civil rights, democratic system, open free society within China towards own people and Hong Kong citizens aspiring democratic values with self-governance, independent Taiwan, Xin Jiang province, Tibet and all others enunciated above in South and South East Asia, South Pacific and the rest of the world are no longer a choice but an obligation to rebuild China and the global economy.

China’s seismic shift in political and strategic evolution accepting democracy, respecting human rights, neighbors sovereignty, territorial integrity and above all transparency and trustworthiness in all dealings is the only way forward to earn global citizens confidence and approval.

China’s economic prosperity ascribed to free market enterprise in the global economy venturing into mainland invigorated meteoric rise. The political and strategic reforms in China’s system is long overdue for positive exchange in relations severely compromised in Beijing’s rattled response to COVID19 and economic ramifications.

Beijing’s reconciliation and rapprochement with India and neighbors in South China Sea would renew ties boosting economic progress amongst all.

China’s engagement with United States and western powers is a complex relationship. China positioned as a major creditor financing and servicing western economies. The trade war with United States alongside China as the manufacturing hub for United States mega corporations is an inter-dependent economic chain link with lingering mistrust and mendacious malfeasance overwhelming at certain times like currency manipulation to gain export advantage and leverage foreign currency reserves and at present the corona virus corroded the benefit of doubt against China.

United States recent steps against China are motivated by the latter’s inconsistency in meeting expectations with inherent deficiencies in mutual cooperation and understanding on many issues from economic strengths to intellectual property rights that are contentious requiring considerable revisions and renewed measures for a fresh dependable transparent trade alliance.

In conclusion, China’s awakening to twenty first century reality represented by generation within the country, Xin Jiang Province, neighboring Hong Kong, Tibet and Taiwan for independence leading to a democratic society with freedom, political rights, individual liberty to elect government through ballots not bullets, honoring the will and wishes of nations seeking respect for their sovereignty and territorial integrity, abandoning hostility for harmony with all nations in the region and world wide is the only way forward to establish meaningful and universally acceptable transition that guarantees trust, peace and fulfillment on obligations and commitments.

Thank you.

India and China – Alter Ego Authoritarians

June 5, 2020

Authoritarians

Alter Ego 

Padmini Arhant

The two most populous nations on earth, China and India under diverse authoritarian rule, one in direct form as Communism i.e. China under Xi Jinping while the other most dangerous, the so-called democracy in disguise totalitarian leadership combined with potent fundamentalist radicalism headed by Narendra Modi are essentially alter ego to one another.

The heads of the largest nations in South and South East Asia are sinister secret society backed in their respective activities far from legitimate governance.

China’s Xi Jinping and India’s Narendra Modi share common traits and problems with a mutual response reflected in the current skirmishes in the Himalayan region.

To begin with mendacity, mistrust and malfeasance are primary attributes in their respective meteoric rise in political career. They both deploy and hopelessly rely on propaganda and mass deception through shoddy journalism hired locally with questionable credentials linked to London further adding to tarnished reputation.

Xi Jinping in China and Narendra Modi in India have miserably failed in their handling of the corona virus, the pandemic dealt with secrecy and draconian measures leaving the relevant victims to fend for themselves.

Narendra Modi government’s colossal failures in many frontiers evident in status quo. Similarly Xi Jinping’s communist hard line policy proved disaster in the domestic and international front prompting undesirable actions exacerbating personal and political recovery.

Though projected as strong leaders through their heavily invested misinformation campaign using press and various media platform, the proof of the pudding is in the failed economies and brewing storm within the country directly affecting their rocky position in the political party and system they are and should be deeply concerned about considering their consistent flaws and fractured performance.

Narendra Modi devised Pulwama attack strategy in Kashmir using Indian Defense security personnel as sacrificial lambs found resourceful in the campaign trail rhetoric in sheer violation of electoral rules and democratic norms during national election in May 2019 claiming fraudulent victory.

The counterpart Xi Jinping in hot waters in the wake of incontrovertible revelations on the corona virus i.e. manufacturing the engineered virus and spreading the deadly pathogen worldwide is a mere tip of the iceberg.

China’s economy, credibility and enchilada in terms of Beijing’s impulsive response to Hong Kong introducing controversial national security law triggered worldwide condemnation.

Additionally, legitimate global frustration on the betrayal over corona virus saga are enough to stimulate egregious actions from Chinese leadership facing enormous pressure and opposition within communist politburo and 1.45 billion oppressed citizens in the misleading People Republic of China.

Regardless of the situations in both nations, the leaderships’ devious maneuver to deflect angry disillusioned population attention from domestic woes and calamities are anticipated reactions.

The warfare in the Himalayan region that has consumed 32 Indian soldiers’ lives and casualties on Chinese side as well that are not officially reported in line with lack of transparency on all issues especially deaths among defense forces is least surprising.

There is no justification whatsoever for China’s aggression towards neighbors near and far in the absence of clear effective resolutions to the crises originated from China.

Likewise, Narendra Modi government acknowledgment on recklessness prevalent in all matter not barring ignoring security warnings from intelligence agencies and open threat from the enemy next door i.e. China’s leadership on the rampant aggression along the Himalayan border leading to unnecessary and preventable loss of lives among Indian soldiers in the past few days is minimum expected from the recalcitrant administration.

China’s Xi Jinping and India’s Narendra Modi bolstered by illegal secret society are at the crossroads of their political challenges that requires humility, honesty and harmony in their approach not haste destructive demeanor.

Finally, no street hawker journalist monetarily incentivized with few rupees using unscrupulous criminal tactics such as  superimposition on images in the articles without stating the picture source can possibly rescue Narendra Modi from the indefensible and irreparable damage, albeit self inflicted due to detrimental indulgence and mindless pursuits.

Nonetheless, China’s Xi Jinping and India’s Narendra Modi experience beginning of the end in their political journey. The imminent process delivering hope for the dawn of peace and progress in the region.

Thank you.
