Tibet – a legacy of peace & knowledge with history of war & pain

Tibet  in today’s world every body knows and same  is also true for past but  there is a lot of difference. In today’s time Tibet is largely unstable struggling for its  freedom and other side it is china who claims , it is a part of china for centuries. Both have their points.

If we look back into past we find some very interesting facts, how whole things got messier and messier. Initially Tibet was as free as any other country, they have their own  government, currency, and posted office even it was until at 1949, when china invaded Tibet and claimed.

 

It’s all started back in 1914 when Representatives of Great Britain, China, and Tibet met in 1914 to negotiate a treaty marking out the boundary lines between India and its northern neighbors.

The Simla Convention granted China secular control over “Inner Tibet,” (also known as Qinghai Province) while recognizing the autonomy of “Outer Tibet” under the Dalai Lama’s rule. Both China and Britain promised to “respect the territorial integrity of [Tibet], and abstain from interference in the administration of Outer Tibet.” 

 China walked out of the conference without signing the treaty after Britain laid claim to the Tawang area of southern Tibet, which is now part of the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh. Tibet and Britain both signed the treaty.As a result, China has never agreed to India’s rights in northern Arunachal Pradesh (Tawang), and the two nations went to war over the area in 1962. The boundary dispute still has not been resolved.

Fight of Dalai Lama –

On March 1, 1959, the Dalai Lama received an odd invitation to attend a theater performance at PLA headquarters near Lhasa.

The Dalai Lama demurred, and the performance date was postponed until March 10. On March 9, PLA officers notified the Dalai Lama’s bodyguards that they would not accompany the Tibetan leader to the performance, nor were they to notify the Tibetan people that he was leaving the palace. (Ordinarily, the people of Lhasa would line the streets to greet the Dalai Lama each time he ventured out.)

The guards immediately publicized this rather ham-handed attempted abduction, and the following day an estimated crowd of 300,000 Tibetans surrounded Potala Palace to protect their leader.

The PLA moved artillery into range of major monasteries and the Dalai Lama’s summer palace, Norbulingka.

Both sides began to dig in, although the Tibetan army was much smaller than its adversary, and poorly armed.

Tibetan troops were able to secure a route for the Dalai Lama to escape into India on March 17. Actual fighting began on March 19, and lasted only two days before the Tibetan troops were defeated.

After this Dalai Lama is longest guest for India and  even today  India is hosting Dalai Lama and all refugees of Tibet. There is also a rule given by India to all these Tibetan refugees to gain a passport by Indian government by Dalai Lama request.

Their is a lot, which happened and their is a lot which is happening and will happen .

 

 

It is very hard to say what is solution, it’s because solution is not possible it’s because no one want to compromise for betterment of Tibet and in more deeply also for china and India.
