Nepal India Lipu Lekh Dispute

May 11, 2020

Nepal – India 

Mount Kailash Lake Manasarovar Lipu Lekh Dispute 

Padmini Arhant

The world is battling corona virus and Indian government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Hindutva BJP engaged in misplaced priorities leaving the 1.3 billion population oppressed and suppressed in political, economic and social problems.

Now in the worst global pandemic New Delhi Central authority deprive the overwhelming majority the desperately needed economic and health emergency relief to survive and overcome the crises.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s extravagant indulgence splurging ordinary Indian taxpayers hard earned money to construct a new Parliament House seizing funds from Defense budget and abandoning corona virus containment that has alarmingly exploded in Narendra Modi’s home state Gujarat and the northern region appropriately merit public scrutiny.

India’s middle class, the lower income together with the poorest of the poor in particular are confronted with economic and health apocalypse under the present administration of PM Narendra Modi.

Amid extreme health challenges and excruciating economic conditions hurting the entire nation at large, PM Narendra Modi’s government emulating China in unwanted and unnecessary territorial disputes especially with a friendly conciliatory neighbor, the Himalayan state, Nepal on Lipu Lekh – the road that leads to Sacred Mount Kailash and Holy Lake Manasarovar attracting pilgrims and followers of God Shiva from India, Nepal and worldwide is Indian government’s political maneuver to deflect public attention from burgeoning issues in the domestic front. 

The landlocked Himalayan State, Nepal for better or worse located between two neighbors India and China continues to face assertive and even aggressive territorial annexations from either side in recent memory.

Any nation deemed powerful on military, geographical, political and economic basis targeting anyone presumed little, weak and vulnerable in size and strength is a sign of contraction for the former underestimating serious repercussions in exerting dominance. History is testament to the fact. 

The world has come a long way and in the present time experiencing seismic shift in turn of events as a result of repeat mistakes and egregious involvement by those having presumptuously assumed dominance over others as their given right and entitlement.

Notwithstanding Karmic effects in correcting the wheel of justice to represent truth and fairness in all matter. 

Nepal is a nation committed towards secular, peaceful and diplomatic means to resolve issues of any kind with neighbors big and small in any dimension. However, the same are yet to be demonstrated by either India or China increasingly competing with one another in undermining neighboring states sovereignty and territorial integrity creating multifaceted potential quagmire.

Nepal is a country proudly situated in the foothills of Himalayas, the heavenly abode of God Shiva and the pilgrimage to Mt.Kailash is a major revenue source for the Himalayan State whose population heavily depend on seasonal tours and treks providing employment and business opportunity to the otherwise economically struggling developing nation.

Big countries facilitating growth and development in other nations without hegemonic interests and territorial aspirations would deliver mutual prospects rather than overpowering them with unacceptable occupation and invasion of their sovereign territory.

India under Prime Minister Narendra Modi driven by hardline political and fundamentalist ideology steering the nation towards undesirable trail proved not beneficial in improving bilateral and multilateral relations in the region near and far. 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government focus on mitigating the rapid spread of corona virus saving and protecting lives leaving none behind in the immediate calamity along with executing meaningful effective economic plans and urgently required financial package, monetary assistance to all states and union territories in India is the hour of need.

Finally, no nation regardless of status could arbitrarily claim territorial rights with voluntary investment in other nation’s infrastructure premised on political and hegemonic goals denying the original state sovereignty to disputed territory.

The irreversible sovereign rights of victim nations apply to all situations dealing with active and passive territorial possessions by countries through force and coercion taking undue advantage of the respective positions in the geopolitical landscape.

Accordingly the contested territory Lipu Lekh and any other sovereign boundary and border of the Himalayan State Nepal in South Asia in dispute with India and China to be solemnly recognized as Nepal’s geographical domain in compliance to respecting territorial integrity of sovereign nations in the world. 

Thank you.

India – Objection to UNHRC Plea on CAA, NPR & NRC

March 6, 2020

India –  BJP Government Objection to UNHRC Plea on CAA, NPR & NRC

Padmini Arhant

Prime Minister Narendra Modi government and the state run media objection to UNHRC joining other local petitioners on the controversial #CAA, #NPR and #NRC in the Indian Supreme Court calling out UNHRC participation as foreign body intervention in India’s internal affair and further claiming that such activity is violation of India’s sovereignty deserves attention.

India’s position might be valid upon Indian government strict adherence to Indian constitution and democratic rule of law barring any form of discrimination and prejudice that the legislated act #CAA, #NPR and #NRC proved to be in the testing ground viz. the north eastern state, Assam.

Assam citizens requested for protection of the natives political, economic and social rights and the indigenous culture that are on the brink of dissipation due to migrants from adjacent West Bengal and population influx from Bangladesh post 1971 war between India and Pakistan.

Instead, Assamese problem exacerbated with natives and locals placement in detention centers on the basis of convoluted NRC and CAA diversion from initial approximately 33,000 immigrants to now 19% of population of which 12% are Hindus and Delhi Central government defined Hindu denominations viz. Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians leaving the remaining 7% muslims as illegals per PM Narendra Modi’ government’s declaration.

The foreign tribunal set up in Assam to filter the qualified against the non-qualified in the citizenship criteria already split internally with the resignation of a tribunal member dissenting on the corruption and lack of credibility in the process that apparently allowed applicants with forged documents bribing the administration officials while declining citizens with proper documents and papers on them.

The long established second and third generation citizens in Assam having been affected by NRC flaws could not even receive any justice in the State High Court interpreting the New Delhi government law as final.

As a result, the Assamese natives are being relocated from their place of residence to BJP government assigned detention centers with reports of some deaths in some facility from the inadequate accommodation requirements.

The cases in reference are as pointed out earlier on this site – the former President of India Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed’s family isolated as non-citizens of India.

Similarly the former war veteran Army Major Mohammed Sanaullah, a decorated Indian Army Officer having served Indian defense force for over thirty years and honored with Presidential medal for his bravery in Kargil war between India and Pakistan that almost led to nuclear meltdown in 1999 only to be now denigrated as a foreigner and dispatched to detention center could not be an inadvertent mistake. The Army officer Mohammed Sanaullah had to prove his citizenship in the court of law at his personal expense.

Needless to say ordinary citizens living hand to mouth in a distressed economy are not in a position to deal with such challenges evidently associated with #CAA, #NPR and #NRC.

These are the ramifications from #CAA, #NPR and #NRC that are falsely propagated as no brainer in implementation harming none anywhere in India despite the unraveling of the unnecessary government agenda.

The intriguing aspect of this #CAA in particular is the government plan to naturalize minority Hindus and Hindu category as outlined above from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh living in non-residential status in Assam legislated in Parliament with an amendment to the existing citizenship act. When the government could have granted asylum to all those members including muslims upon every one of them satisfying the standard criteria and importantly without criminal record.

PM Narendra Modi, HM Amit Shah and their surrogates in media and those representing the government in media discussions on this topic defend #CAA, #NPR and #NRC as laws that target none even though muslims are specifically segregated from this group for citizenship approval.

Furthermore, what was the need for  PM Narendra Modi government to amend the citizenship act for #CAA?

Again, when the matter could have been addressed without dragging the nation into quagmire producing protests followed by BJP government ministers and members unleashed hate speeches and inflammatory recommendations that consumed more than 47 innocent lives in the latest horrific Delhi violence and set North East Delhi on fire.

Obviously, these events suffice to summarize that are more to these laws that meets the eye and the government confirmation in this regard with no political will to resolve the issues amicably prolong the contentious citizenship saga.

Now on the issue of UNHRC accused of meddling in India’s domestic propositions.

The synonymous action from India, in fact  Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government indulgence in neighboring Nepal, an independent sovereign state with democratically elected government passing a unanimous constitutional amendment in Parliament on Nepal’s Hindu status to secular state was condemned by PM Narendra Modi, his government and BJP in unison.

They did not stop at reprimanding Nepal’s leadership and opposition alike for this transition from Hindu state to secularism or pluralist status.

PM Narendra Modi unilaterally imposed economic sanctions against the economically struggling small nation like Nepal subjecting children, women, youth and elderly to extreme difficulties depriving them of food, medicines and basic essentials leading to casualties from that economic blockade lasting several months in 2015.

Perhaps at that time, PM Narendra Modi and cohorts singing in chorus now could have realized that India and Indian government had no business to chide Nepal nor possessed any right to intervene in Nepal’s sovereign decision let alone execute drastic trade embargo on Nepal.

Politics selective amnesia is well known and Indian critics on UNHRC sharing concerns as interventional fail to acknowledge own record fitting the profile.

India’s interference in 2015 was intrusive especially concerning Nepal’s admirable measure becoming inclusive in recognition of all citizens and diverse background in the country unlike India on the reverse course.

Often such examples serve as poignant moments in political history striving to safeguard democracy and constitutional rights of all citizens rejecting bias and marginalization of any segments in society.

Unfortunately, India is driven in the opposite direction in defiance of democracy, constitution and humanitarian law benefitting none at the end.

Indian citizenry consciousness and mass awakening to this effect pertinent to avert undesirable destination reflected in status quo. 

Thank you.

China – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

November 12, 2019

China – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Padmini Arhant

China’s OCD is related to illegal invasion, occupation of foreign land  viz. TIBET adapting colonial counterparts disorder in addition to repeat violations of neighbors i.e. sovereign nations territorial integrity via aggressive annexations and encroachment of land near and far.

China’s OCD is enabled by regional governments and authorities especially Indian government’s weakness to personal flattery in gifts, pseudo awards and honorary titles presented in the form of bribery to gain collusion in foreign influence and exertion of authority in not only Indian affairs but also in asserting regional dominance in the Indian sub-continent.

Accordingly, citizens in India, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka dealing with China’s consistent territorial land and river grab need to adopt this potent strategy as they cannot expect their governments to do anything since governments are run by foreign diktat and installed as puppet regimes to execute their lofty economic and political aspirations of foreign superiority reviving colonial era.

Citizens anywhere frustrated and concerned about China’s policy in Tibet, Hong Kong, regional and global matter could be instrumental in rejecting MADE IN CHINA goods and services as well as products manufactured in China by major Corporations ignoring China’s human rights abuse and blatant territorial disputes whether in Indian Sub-continent or South China Sea with Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines…to name a few reminding not only China anyone with imperialists ambitions to renounce subjugation, oppression and Superpower syndrome.

China’s economic status predominantly made possible by global consumption of MADE IN CHINA goods flooding international markets depriving ordinary citizens in developed and developing nations employment and business opportunity experienced in the past three decades facilitating China’s acceleration as dominant emerging economic power which in return exercised by China for illegal access claiming entitlement on foreign land and territories at will besides denying political freedom to citizens in China and the so-called autonomous states Hong Kong, Tibet and long contested Taiwan.

United States ongoing trade war with China is nothing more than a farce. United States having granted China Most Favored Nation (MFN) Status up until now by democrat and republican administrations as well as US Congress alike primarily in adherence to corporate lobbying to set up manufacturing base in China has led to China’s affluence in financing United States economy as one of USA’s major creditor holding upper hand in negotiations and the hyped TRADE WAR between the two equally spoilt economic defaulters at global expense.

China as a World Trade Organization (WTO) member along with enjoying veto power in defunct UN Security Council amid several privileges in various international body and institutions override China’s communist political platform that otherwise remains the bone of contention for globalists against Caribbean nation Cuba enduring economic sanctions lasting more than half a century for being a Communist remnant and similar impositions against socialists governments like Venezuela, Bolivia and many others in Latin America.

In other words, the global oligarchy presided politics worldwide tolerate Communism in politics as maintained by China which is not per definition of Communism as one might think such as distribution of wealth and power amongst all in the nation. In fact China in semblance with former Soviet Union, the authority anchored on concentration of political power amongst core members in China’s Polit bureau declining any hope for Chinese population within China to acquaint themselves and participate in real rather than symbolic republic status.

Global oligarchy have no problems with China’s Communism with the latter accommodating the former in economic front via foreign investments in China’s economy transforming China into global manufacturing hub regardless of labor force exploitation within China, environment slight by corporate giants and importantly the price paid by world labor force witnessed in rising unemployment in many economies and local export businesses deeply hurt in the process.

Unfortunately, expecting China to be a fair trading partner is wishful thinking as China is a known and an established procrastinator in this regard. China’s recent and past performance linked to arbitrary currency management for disproportionate self advantage as the least expensive import destination for western and many developing economies is a fundamental flaw aiding China’s insurgence in other critical economic concerns ranging from copyrights and patent infringement to technological innovations piracy escalating cyber warfare are merely the tip of the iceberg.

Interestingly, the outlook on US and China relationship as fierce economic competitors with demands on both sides to ease tensions in a way is paradoxical considering the dependency on each other with United States long been serving as China’s most favorable consumer market due to consumer buying power even in the toughest economic times unlike for example India’s huge population perceived as potential market for consumer goods that are hard to achieve given India’s present economic situation and Indian government failure on economic recovery.

China on the other hand is the multinational corporations desirable manufacturing base that compromise on labor wages, environment regulations and many relevant industrial compliance having direct impact on human survival and ecological sustenance.

The quid pro quo between oligarchy and China’s central authority flagrantly disregard domestic and foreign labor force plight causing hindrance to developing and industrialized nations’ economic growth representing the consolidated consumer market in the globalized economy.

Western perception of China as threat to their imperialist domain is a result of western policy benefiting China in many aspects with key factors enunciated above beginning with exempting China in every respect from political, economic, environment to technological circumventions that are otherwise dealt with western powers’ favorite decision viz. economic sanctions and diverse incursions against other nations generally presumed fair target.

Again this is western powers – both EU and United States common ideology typically falling in obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) symptom in producing and fostering archetype at humanity’s cost then later justifying their indulgence through military interventions or terror sponsorship prevalent in the Middle East and throughout world to topple governments and regimes initiated and promoted by them.

As far as China’s ongoing irritant trade, sovereign territory infiltration and trespassing in neighboring Nepal, occupied Tibet, Indian North East and elsewhere must be contained and every citizen possess this inalienable right to deter existential danger to them and their national sovereignty.

The most effective of all would be to ban CHINA products and services sending a strong message to corporations that the ultimate right to determine the corporate and political empire rise and fall remains with the end consumer.

Chinese authorities are urged to respect neighboring nations sovereignty and international laws demonstrating China’s maturity and ancient civilization values to win trust of those treated as weak and vulnerable not necessarily without protection as the prosperity of anyone rely on progress of all around not the selective few.

Thank you.

Sovereign States Constitutional Matter

October 1, 2019

Sovereign States Constitutional Matter

Padmini Arhant

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s BJP government reserving Article 370 removal in Jammu & Kashmir as India’s internal constitutional matter might be received as such and acknowledged by international political class. 

However, How does Prime Minister Narendra Modi justify his decision to intervene in neighbor Nepal’s similar and rather positive development in constitutional amendment declaring Nepal a secular state renouncing the traditional Hindu majority national identity to which India imposed unilateral economic blockade for nearly seven months hurting the weak, poor, vulnerable and mainstream Nepalese population deprived of essential food supplies, medicines and critical trade costing lives and livelihoods in the small developing country, Nepal?

Unlike Jammu & Kashmir situation post Article 370 abrogation by incumbent PM Narendra Modi government, Nepal’s constitutional measure was a progressive step towards inclusion of minority groups and other demography transcending religion, ethnicity and nativity. While India exercising sovereignty on Article 370 action, PM Narendra Modi not recognizing Nepal’s sovereignty to implement constitutional revision and reprimanding the neighbor with severe economic sanction confirms double standard.

When bigger nations assert authority on smaller counterparts for political reasons and simultaneously rebut global citizenry legitimate concerns over the former’s engagement in Jammu & Kashmir albeit India’s union member, the response is anything but convincing or satisfactory.

PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah’s claims on Jammu & Kashmir that eliminating Article 370 would turn the lives around for the state’s citizens unfortunately and evidently negative from ground reality. When the Central government apparently had so much confidence on their audacious act of revoking Article 370 in Jammu & Kashmir to be celebrated by Kashmiris across the spectrum, 

What is the need for extended curfew denying all citizens basic access to survival and health requirements paralyzing existence?

What is the purpose behind detaining state political party prominent members with whom BJP and Congress party at the Center have forged alliance and run state governments in Jammu & Kashmir?

Why is PM Narendra Modi government moving ahead with local city at municipal level election on October 24th under lockdown position in Jammu & Kashmir?

Any democratic nation would provide explanations to all above mentioned circumstances and earnestly strive to relieve the affected citizens from the ongoing duress returning the state to normalcy for the people to continue their lives without any fear, obstacles and threats to their fundamental rights as well as freedom. 

Thank you.

India and Pakistan – Peace Between Nuclear Neighbors Through WCC

March 29, 2011

By Padmini Arhant

India and Pakistan are scheduled to play against each other in the world cup cricket semi-final on
March 30, 2011 in India.

The expectations on both sides to clinch the title is overwhelming and the exciting event has created
an opportunity to bridge the gap between the two nuclear neighbors with the invitation from the Indian Prime Minister DR. Man Mohan Singh to the Pakistani counterpart Hon. Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani expected to attend the riveting one-day cricket match.

Meanwhile the two nations have come a long way in mending the fence with the acknowledgment of direct dialogue and persistent diplomacy to pave the path towards permanent peace and viable
solutions for myriad of political, economic and social challenges.

The peace summit in Thimpu, the capital in the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan was the icebreaker with significant consensus on economic relationship such as trade and transportation in addition to cultural exchange through sports, arts and entertainment.

Further developments on cooperation in Mumbai terror attack investigation and Pakistan Presidential pardon on the release of Indian prisoner held for cross-border violation are very encouraging.

The talks at various levels by both foreign ministries could come to fruition in the Prime Ministers’ personal meeting.

There is tremendous hope for peace to prevail in the Indian sub-continent with Pakistan and India providing the much-required assistance to other partners – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Nepal.

Fostering mutually beneficial relationship to promote political stability, social equality and economic prospects would strengthen regional growth with global impact.

Besides it would enable trust building quintessential for easing and eventually eliminating security threats in the conventional and nuclear fronts.

Defense expenditure divestments in education, infrastructure, science and technology and importantly protecting the natural environment could revolutionize individual achievements.

The unique paradigm could serve as the model for other territories viz. Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe and Middle East.

In sharing the available resources and technological expertise the national deficiencies could be addressed effectively leading to coordinated efforts in alleviating common plight like poverty, disease and literacy problems.

On the broader aspect – India and Pakistan could potentially lead in nuclear disarmament especially in the face of the devastating nuclear disaster sadly experienced by Japan with pervasive effects.

Solidarity among nations within a sub-continent or a continent also provides protection during natural catastrophes with quick access to humanitarian aid due to proximity.

Any compassionate response to human tragedies always generate good-will transforming the bilateral and multilateral ties to extraordinary heights.

With respect to the cricket game – the millions of fans cheering for their home teams are poised to accept the results in harmony than acrimony confirming the inherent quest to improve relations.

India and Pakistan as former world cup champions have proved their formidability and more so evident in the current tournament.

It will be a sure delight to watch the cream of the crop performance on both sides to win the coveted trophy.

India and Pakistan have reached an impressive milestone in the favorite sport and striving for similar status in political negotiations would guarantee the desirable outcome.

Perseverance is one of the key elements to success.  Maintaining the momentum will sustain the incremental victory thus far.

Wishing India and Pakistan a fabulous game producing lots of fun for the cricket enthusiasts in the respective domain.

Thank you.

People’s Republic of China – The Deadly Dragon

August 13, 2009

By Padmini Arhant

Profile – The world’s most populous nation, hailed the emerging economic power presumably in control of the U.S. Treasury and the EU Exchequer, world’s third largest country by total area and the second largest by … ranges forming China’s borders with India and Central Asia.

As the longest thriving Communist power, the totalitarian government embraced Capitalism parallel to its political setting with absolute control on policies directly contradictory to the free market system in the rest of the world.

Politically a Communist and economically a Capitalist nation, China is also a venerable member of the United Nations Security Council for reasons unfitting during the most important U.N. Structural formation post World War II. This has resulted in the excessive use of veto power by the authoritarian rule against all things humane and universally beneficial.

The Communist nation denounced as the fascist government in the new millennium by its enormous population, oppressed, repressed and deprived of basic human rights particularly the freedom of speech and the ominous communication censorship.

Tiananmen Square killings is a stark reminder to the global community that when a nation do not hesitate to murder scores of its unarmed civilians in worldview, it can never be taken for granted in the safe treatment of its neighbors. Case evidenced in the invasion and butchering of innocent Tibetan monks, men, women and children and the interference in neighboring Nepal’s politics by thrusting ‘Communism,’ on the entire ‘Hindu’ population unfamiliar with the concept until China’s arrival.

Just recently, the twentieth anniversary of the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre observed solemnly and cautiously not on Chinese soil but elsewhere in an effort not to rock the ‘tug boat’ upheld as the Titanic due to the illusionary overcast in the perception among the world operatives.

The world must pay attention and act swiftly on the dragon nation’s role in the geo-political, economic, social, cultural and environmental issues.

In the economic front, the Communist regime gained advantage in the latter part of the twentieth century predominantly because of the pervasive economic boom in the United States and across the world with a sharp escalation in demands on a wide spectrum of consumer goods.

China wasted no time and seized the opportunity to strengthen the supplier status as the world’s largest ‘manufacturing warehouse’ sparing no consumer articles. In addition, China single handedly wiped out the prospects of any viable competition in the global economy with the ‘bargain’ deals as a tool… in attracting big and small manufacturers around the world.

Most businesses neglected their own workforce for the Communist governed rigid market. While others ignored poor and developing nations despite, their flexibility to the free market factors.

The surge in demands during the nineties from the U.S. and global prosperity prompted the secretive and secluded Chinese political system to break away from the economic protectionism and adopt a customized capitalism within the confines of Communism.

It’s essential to note the ironies in the treatment of Communist countries by the Western governments, i.e. the United States and Europe.

The ideal example is the Latin neighbor across the Caribbean, a long time foe of the United States, the ‘Communist’ Cuba that led to the nerve racking Cuban Missile Crisis, shortly halting the world on the possible confrontation between the nuclear Super Powers, the United States and the former Soviet Union.

Cuba has been isolated for decades and now there appears to be a glimpse of hope in the relationship between the United States and the Cuban authority, attributable to President Obama’s diplomacy message. The economic sanctions and travel restrictions (recently eased by President Obama) against Cuba on the charges of human rights violation and non-democratic power only punished the long-suffering Cuban population rather than achieving the intended goal to remove the ‘Communist’ power.

On the Contrary, the Communist China with no respect for international or humanitarian law crowned the world leader and perpetually granted MFN (Most Favored Nation) status along with premium membership in WTO (World Trade Organization)…

Such rewards speak volume about the hypocrisy in the Western foreign policy, not to mention the lack of courage in clipping the wings of the scavenger bird…inadvertently allowing the Communist nation’s dominance in the world economy and political sphere to the detriment of regional and global peace and security.

Why should the global population awaken to the Communist China’s Supremacy?

Apart from history related to foot binding and gleefully dispensing lives to build the landmark -‘Great Wall of China.’ the Chinese regime’s atrocities and recalcitrant conduct in dealing with the free market investors and entrepreneurs deserve scrutiny.

As stated above, China has artfully manipulated their currency to weaken the U.S. dollar and the investment in U.S. Treasury Notes is an insurance to bind the United States financially making it symbolic with the free and democratic USA indebted to a repressive Chinese regime. The scenario enabling the unruly government to relentlessly engage in arms supply to the impoverished regions of the world such as Darfur, Sudan, Congo, Rwanda, Sri Lanka and others.

Chinese aggressive takeover of the mass production of consumer goods has killed NAFTA, CAFTA… and responsible for countries like Mexico embroiled in war against the Drug Cartels emerging from poverty, despair and hopelessness, notwithstanding the other poorest nations unable to compete with China in winning the favorable trading status or luring manufacturing investments in their respective countries. Simply put, the Chinese over-indulgence negated chances for poorer nations in exporting goods to the consumer buoyant U.S. market.

With respect to trade and commerce, China’s latest ban on world-renowned ‘Google’ search engine on the bizarre pretext of protecting its population from pornography is an ill-conceived hogwash with nothing to rest on. Likewise, in the software saga – the mandatory requirement for all PC’s to contain built-in software in compliance with the regime’s prohibition of the free expression in the modern technological age is the direct imposition of Communist rule of law – “My way or High Way.”

Further, China is unique in the intellectual property warfare by leading the amateurs in the piracy, forging the patent right and the copyright of products and services especially with the ones manufactured in the USA.

Again, if it’s rampant in the publishing field, it’s potent in the music industry with the downloading of music and DVDs, endless supply of unauthorized imitations/copies of Hollywood movies prior to the legal distribution in the world market…

China’s monopoly in the cyberspace by preventing free market competition in accessing the expansive market share of the Chinese users aptly qualifies for the ‘big bully’ title.

It’s unwillingness to cooperate with France on the recommendation to hold overseas Corporations accountable for tax evasion through tax havens is a testimony to the regime’s lack of integrity.

International Sports like Beijing Olympics – China’s strategy to stomp USA by any means – hook or crook duly reported in the accidental slip of the Chinese on-line media and the vigilant international press. It has a specific reference to the cruel detainment of young Chinese athletes trained for ‘Gymnastics’ in the extreme and strenuous conditions against the International Olympic guidelines safeguarding the athletes’ interests.

In the scientific arena, the organ extortion for transplants and experiment turned a blind eye by the Communist authority, otherwise a stickler for rules and regulations enforced against normal existence.

Social Protocol – China’s population control measure involving one child policy triggered infanticide and alarming number of orphans especially female children in the appalling orphanages pleading the authorities to care for them.

Weapons of Mass Destruction – Easily delivered through food and various consumer products as experienced in the toxic toothpaste and lead based children’s toys, not excluding the leaking battery cells in laptop computers causing explosion in some incidents – from items manufactured in China.

Environment is oxymoron to the world’s largest polluter investing in gusto on fossil fuel from Australia and refusing to commit to greenhouse gas reduction by limiting carbon emission.

Similarly, an utter disregard for life in general, human trafficking is a normal activity and a huge lucrative trade carried out in a smooth operation with the knowledge of the regime within, along the borders and outside China by the undesirable elements normally serving time in prison in the lawful regions.

China’s footprints are traceable in almost every civil war and ethnic cleansing across the globe, being the voracious supplier of deadly and dangerous weapons. The military industrial complex thrives with the active purveyor like China.

China is guilty of genocide in Darfur, Sri Lankan ethnic cleansing, and most poignantly invasion, occupation and systemic violation of the peaceful and pious Tibetan population and culture.

Chinese Communist regime is the avant- guard and a substantial aid to militant North Korea, Burma, Sudan, Iran to name a few. It doesn’t fall behind in being a staunch ally to Pakistan in instigating and stirring tension with its nuclear neighbor India.

China’s role in the U.N. Security Council thus far is, remaining a vehement opponent of effective action against North Korea, Burma, Iran and dictatorships around the world.
————————————————————————————————–
What is the deadly dragon up to now in the region?

China’s insatiable appetite revealed in the most shocking and astonishing developments that would engulf the entire world if not intervened immediately.

The Chinese Communist regime invaded and destroyed the tranquility of the rich Tibetan culture and the peace loving Tibetan Buddhists, followed by the successful influence of ‘Communism’ on the ‘Hindu’ nation, Nepal. All of this happened on the international watch.

At present, the regime is in full preparation to take the world by storm with the aggressive invasion of the world’s largest democracy and the unfortunate closest neighbor, India.

Yes, you heard it right.

China has been active and infiltrating into the north and north eastern borders of India for quite some time and now the emboldened regime with the political and economic clout considers the moment ripe to devour the democratic, secular and nuclear India.

The Communist regime has mobilized the vast army through bullet trains and high speed transportations and solidly planning to surround the Indian borders on all sides. It’s just a matter of time.

Lately, the Chinese Think Tank, China International Institute for Strategic Studies (WWW.CIISS.ORG) masterminded a plan for the authoritarian rule and made the following proposal.

According to the plan, the regime advised to split India into 30 segments as India has 28 states and 7 union territories. Chinese regime asked to approach the vulnerable small and big nations such as Nepal, Bhutan and Pakistan in the North and Bangladesh in the North East to assist in disintegrating India like Europe and the former Soviet Union.

The plan is to divide India on ethnic and religious diversity by having each neighbor assigned with a specific task aided by the totalitarian China.

The think tank detailed the devious operation beginning from North India, Kashmir aptly assigned to nuclear Pakistan, West Bengal in the eastern border to Bangladesh because of similar ethnicity, create separatist movement in Tamil Nadu, Southern India and force India to concede to the fragmentation of itself.

China’s behavior doesn’t come as a surprise. China betrayed India soon after the long fought independence from the British Empire. China ambushed India in the most cowardly manner.

The Western-educated and political savvy, First Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru extended India’s friendship hand only to be bitten harshly by the Communist leadership in China, Zhou Enlai also known as Chou En-lai and the prominent Mao Zedong.

What should India do to thwart the aggression from the predator China?

Firstly, India must launch an aggressive campaign educating and addressing the rural and disenchanted mass in the local languages and dialects about China’s dubious plan. The Congress government and party must simultaneously resolve the pressing issues of the local population to build the necessary confidence and trust towards the government and the agencies.

India’s rescue from the monster attack depends on every citizen regardless of background, standing up to unite the nation and promote solidarity by rejecting the Chinese orchestrated propaganda targeting the weak and the gullible populace.

It’s truly a testing time for every Indian to display their patriotism and reach out to those who are confused and disoriented about the great future of the world’s largest democracy.

Remember the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi’s words – No matter what, India is a secular nation and will remain so now and in the future. It is the duty of the brave and smart citizens of India to demonstrate resolve against the foreign infiltration, and keep India unified at all costs.

Remind your fellow Indian citizens that irrespective of race, religion, skin color and socio-economic status, they are children of God. Everyone must come together as a national force and not a regional threat against one another falling into the enemy’s booby trap.

Bollywood could play a significant role through documentary or commercial films on the national unity theme. Don’t fail to include the footage of Tiananmen Square and present the realities of split Europe then and the unified Europe now through European Union. Also, provide the horrible images of the persecution of Tibetans, in the Tibet occupied by China and the plight of the ethnic Muslim population in the Chinese province.

Message for the regional neighbors – Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal and Pakistan:

The message replicated for the governments and the people of Pakistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal not to commit the blunder of aiding and abetting with the Communist regime in China that disregarded and disinherited its own people in the past and present. In fact, it would be foolhardy for the neighbors to set fire to the common habitat.

The government and the people of Bangladesh should not believe in the Communist rumors against Indian regional politics and refrain from becoming part of the political quagmire in the region.
Relevantly, Bangladesh will not be a free nation today, if not for the sacrifice of the Indian blood in the 1971 war against Pakistan to liberate the formerly known East Pakistan, that later became Bangladesh.

As for Bhutan and Nepal, heeding to the advice of the brutal Chinese regime to stir tensions or an uprising against India will be a political suicide and sure to backfire sooner than later resembling the fate of oppressed Tibet by China.

Pakistan as a mature nation should well understand that every action has equal and opposite reaction. The Communist China might project India as the vitriolic rival; however, the Chinese authority’s regional ambition should not be underestimated.

Any assistance by Pakistan to China in destabilizing India would be analogous to the naïve adolescent riding on the crocodile/alligator’s back to get across the river banks, only to become the scrumptious feast for the ever hungry marsh land creature.

The people of Indian Kashmir experiencing the freedom, peace, political and economic stability on the Indian side should not fall for misguided tales and lies through agents of the Chinese regime. Kashmiris should take a hard look at the Pakistan riddled with the militants occupation, terrorist camps and eternal chaos of suicide bombings, explosions contributing widespread fear among the Pakistani population about their security and future…

People of Tamil Nadu and West Bengal acknowledged for their sharp intellect should unanimously shun the foreign sources hired to sabotage the Indian national interest and stay committed towards the national defense.

Warning to the mighty and presumptuous People’s Republic of China that has neither represented the people nor demonstrated as the republic:

Based on the adequately available evidence, the Chinese troops mobilization along the north and north eastern borders of India must be withdrawn effective immediately and unconditionally. China has no business lingering around and near the clearly demarcated Indian territories.

The CIISS think tank diabolical strategy to distract the Chinese population drowned in decades of misery as political prisoners and the onset of economic gloom following the short-lived cornucopia do not justify the vicious and treacherous plot against neighboring India doing no harm whatsoever to the Chinese regime or the people of China.

If the Communist regime accepts the so-called think tank proposal and acts upon it to camouflage the domestic problems of different kinds –frustration among pro-democracy youth, unrest, ethnic tension with the Muslim population, uncertain economy, growing unemployment…

It would lead to devastating Galactic response with a great deal of variation. Any nation on planet earth in possession of the vast armed forces and nuclear arsenal is not invincible and therefore such assumption is purely delusional.

China’s despot leadership comprising Premier Wen Jiabao and President Hu Jintao should not underestimate the prophetic call and proceed to the destination of peril with the troop amassment around India.

It is clear to the international community that the Chinese leadership involvement in Darfur genocide, abuse of Tibetan population and suppression of democracy movement in China…unequivocally a humanitarian crime of greater impact in modern times.

Hence, it would justify calling for the worldwide boycott of goods and services from China and withdrawal of investments in hybrid or exclusive Chinese holdings by citizens for global peace and democracy.

The reconfiguration of the U.N. Security Council delivered for a purpose and the United Nations expected to act in accordance with the new world order. Any slight of the information would render the United Nations incapacitated confirming the majority opinion on the U.N. validity.

Finally, China’s activities along the Indian borders is an invitation to a free fall from the economic cliff with serious ramifications and failure to heed to the call would be catastrophic, perhaps in the form of assorted natural disasters.

It’s time for the universe to recognize the devil in disguise behind the masqueraded deadly dragon.

Thank you.

International Politics – India’s General Election Results

May 16, 2009

By Padmini Arhant

Heartfelt Congratulations! to DR. Manmohan Singh and Mrs. Sonia Gandhi on the impressive victory and re-election of the Congress Party to lead the world’s largest democracy towards further progress and prosperity.

India is at the crossroads in the peace process particularly with the nuclear neighbor Pakistan, currently dealing with challenges threatening the national and international security. There is an opportunity for the nuclear nations to develop peaceful bilateral relationship and revive mutual trust as the foundation to promote trade, economic and cultural exchanges beneficial for the entire sub-continent.

Now is the time to lay the historic discord to rest and begin a new chapter by guiding the younger generations on both sides to coexist in harmony. The best strategy for prolonged peace in the region and global security is nuclear disarmament.  Perhaps, it could begin in the Indian sub-continent leading other nuclear nations to follow suit.  Such unprecedented move would be symbolic for the nation set free by the renowned pioneer of peace and non-violence, Mahatma Gandhi.

Indian leadership desperately required in the peaceful resolution of the Sri Lankan crisis. The escalating violence and the recent death toll among the minority Tamil civilian population are unacceptable. Again, there is no justification whatsoever in the ongoing military action by the Sri Lankan government focused on the minority Tamils’ displacement and replacing them with the Sinhalese settlement.

It’s incumbent on India to refrain from aiding the Sri Lankan government anyhow in the hostility and persecution of the minority Tamils. Sri Lanka well armed with ammunitions supplied by nations prioritizing profit over people needs no further assistance in the crime against humanity. History is testimony that when all things fail in securing equality and justice, uprising by marginalized population is a natural course of action against oppressive power.

However, violent means by the minority representatives are worthy of condemnation and India could play a decisive role in the peaceful negotiations between the two sides. Indian involvement would be legitimate considering the significant representation of Tamils in the southern Indian state of Tamilnadu.

It’s equally important for India to remain vigilant on the recent developments in the northern side of the border concerning Nepal and China’s unnecessary influence. In the other international matter, India should renounce any ties with the repressive regime, Burma. India’s continuous trade relationship with the nation in defiance of humanitarian laws and suppression of democracy raises credibility issue and potentially controversial for the world largest democracy.

Finally, the Congress government should expand attention to the poorest groups apart from the farmers in the society. Again, it’s imperative to provide housing, education, jobs and health care to those at the bottom of the socio-economic strata. India’s progress will truly be reflected when prosperity shared among all rather than the privileged few.

Best Wishes to DR. Manmohan Singh, Mrs. Sonia Gandhi and the Congress Party in all endeavors.
