"India's China Policy- Need for an Overhaul"

September 8, 2007

Date: 13th September 2007, Thursday Time: 9am to 2.00pm Venue: India International Centre, Commitee Room 3, Annexure Building, 40 Maxmueller Marg, New Delhi 110003

Though India had fought and continues to fight western colonialism and Gandhi even gave his entire life to get rid off and not preserve colonialism, Gandhi's successors have given fillip to eastern especially Chinese colonialism as a result of which even sixty years after the formation of the United Nations there are large parts in Asia that do not have feedom and there still remain many remnants of colonial rule in need of decolonisation like Tibet, Manchuria, Inner ie. Southern Mongolia, Eastern Turkestan, Yunnan and Guangxi-Zhuang.

In spite of new evidence surfacing about the political status of Tibet, India continues to wallow in old thinking.

To critically examine this and put a nail in the coffin of Chinese colonialism, Friends of Tibet is holding a panel discussion ''India's China Policy- Need for an Overhaul'' at the Annexure Building of the India International Centre, New Delhi.

The topic will be addressed by:

Prof. Bharat Karnad: Research Professor, National Security Studies, Centre for Policy Research, New Delhi Dr. Mohan Guruswamy: Chairman, Centre for Policy Alternatives Society, New Delhi Dr. Srikanth Kondapalli: Associate Professor, Chinese Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi Dr. L.L Mehrotra, Former Secretary, Ministry of External Affairs will be the Chairperson.
