With the recent Chinese brouhaha and commotion
surrounding the proposed visit of His Holiness
the Dalai Lama to the ‘so called’ disputed Indian
state of Arunachal, China has once again made it
clear, that, it is always aware of its rising
‘economical and military might’ to the extent
that it makes no effort in whatsoever ways to
respect and behave with its neighbor with the basic sense of political decency!

But, India’s firm position on ‘not stooping to
the Chinese pressure’ so far has, in a way,
managed to demean the ‘China Shining’ notion from
the global mentality! Despite India’s records of
kowtowing to communist China, India has restored
its image of being one of the potential future
challengers to China and a power-in-waiting on
the world stage by this simple yet brave act
against China’s baseless banter. However, it
remains to be seen what turns out in the end
vis-à-vis India’s decision not to stop the Dalai
Lama from visiting to the state in question.

The latest Chinese pressure on the Bangladeshi’s
government to bar a Tibet exhibition ("Into Exile
-- Tibet 1949-2009") from conduction on its soils
showed us the extent to which the Chinese could
traverse to brag about its political influence,
even to a country as aloof as Bangladesh which
had remained ‘uncharted’ so far from being used
as China’s barricade to stop any ‘anti-China’
activities from happening. Eventually, as
expected, due to such ‘fear psychosis’ among
world’s leaders today, Bangladesh also succumbed
to the Chinese political caveat and did not allow
the exhibition to see the light of the day on its soil.

Despite His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s repeated
clarification -- that his more-than-frequent
visits abroad being religious in nature, China is
invariably hell-bent on terming his frequent
travels as ‘political’ and ‘dangerous’ to the
state. Due to this fear or insecurity they never
seem to rest their arse from going about warning
the leaders of the host country against meeting
with the spiritual guru whom they termed as
‘splittist’, ‘monk in a wolf’s robe’ and accusing
him of waging war from foreign soil to ‘dismantle
China’s unity’. Such vituperative and slanderous
charges against the Dalai Lama and the Tibetans
(Dalai clique) have become a kind of rare
addiction for them, from which they can not get out so easily!

Similarly, a series of attacks have been aimed
against the Dalai Lama during his current visit
to Japan and as expected, the Japanese Prime
Minster has ‘shied away’ from according a state
welcome to the Dalai Lama in the fear of
upsetting the Chinese bosses. The shadow of the
Chinese influence has already reached New
Zealand. As early as November, the Prime Minister
of New Zealand has already announced his
intention of not meeting with the Dalai Lama
during His Holiness’ forthcoming visit to New
Zealand in the month of December. The reason is obvious.

Beginning with Obama’s drama to the recent
Bangladeshi ‘chamchagiri’ to China, the world has
come to a full circle under the shadow of the
communist China. The wings of the Dragon had
flapped even the mighty America to death!
