THE MOUNTAIN BLUNDER OF 1962
The world has tremendously changed since 1962, 1965 and 1971. Now, the world has become better and worst. With the Azerbaijan-Armenia war going on people have accepted the fact that war is the ultimate solution for the problems.
We, in India are crying for war. On social media, the so called Social media warriors cried out loud for war with China and Pakistan. People living in the comforts of their home are looking to launch a war.
On the other hand, Pakistanis are calling out names to Indians and telling them that, China will beat Indians to its core. Indians are inciting Pakistanis by telling them that this Winter, we will take back Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK). Some are providing theories about the strategy Indian Government is going to follow.
The Two-Front war is an option for the Indian government.
Let’s see what we are betting on and the mistakes of the Past Indian Governments
We have the highest number of volunteers in the world who are willing to join the Indian Armed forces without any compulsion on their part. There are no need to serve the Army under any compulsory provisions unlike- Israel, China and South Korea. We have a Tibetan origin citizens inducted in the armed forces and serving the country and are very good along the Mountain Terrains fighting along side.
We have come a long way since 1962, a blunder by then Prime Minister Mr. JawaharLal Nehru who was blind to not see the Chinese invasion as a threat, country who has just engulfed an entire nation ‘TIBET’. And asked the Generals of the army to keep an eye on Pakistan instead of China.The man who ran to the UN asking for peace refused to use Indian Air Force against China, sometimes it feels like Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru was under the influence of a foreign power who forced him to take these decisions on China that resulted in “THE MOUNTAIN BLUNDER OF 1962”.
Later, the Government of India recognised ‘TIBET’ as the part of China putting an end to the ‘TIBET Freedom Struggle’. Our own Defence minister told the Parliament during the UPA government tenure that, We didn’t make roads along the China Border to counter China from the threat of Invasion.
So as per him, the government policy was not to develop roads so that, if China invaded, they couldn’t get their heavy war machines inside India. But, we couldn’t understand one thing, how the Indian Armed Forces will get reinforcements and their heavy machinery along the border if we don’t have road in case of war.
All these years we have thought of the ‘MOUNTAIN BLUNDER’ and had a ‘RED RIBBON’ on our eyes when we talk about war. We are the major importer of substandard Chinese products and have a huge trade deficit with China.
How come we never talk about Aksai chin glacier? Why do we only talk about POK?
Aksai chin is under the control of the Chinese PLA. But, in the Map of India, our schools taught about POK but never about the parts that Chinese PLA has illegally occupied and have captured many parts along Indian Border overtime during the last 70 years.
WHAT WAS THE COMPULSION OR CONSTRAINT?
They refrained themselves from using the Indian Air Force. What was the compulsion on the Indian Government that forced them to accept the annexation of Tibet into China even though Dalai Lama was given asylum in India. Why these government in the Past have bowed down to every whims and desires of the Chinese government without taking a stand against the Chinese aggression.
These so called Padma Shree awardees are a disgrace to the country and have did nothing to stop the Chinese from bullying us. We have been bullied for the last 70 years and now for the first time we understood how Fragile and spinelees the Chinese Aggression is because we took a stand for our country. And yeah it is the time to win back what is ours. We have a long history of Patience and an image of non-aggressor.
It’s time for the Chinese or Pakistanis to go on a cry for help to United Nations, not India. Not Today…!
