Talk on Significance of Tibet in the Context of the India-China Relationship
  1. Tibet is the silent battleground where India and China intersect. It is through Tibet that China manages its relations with India, using the boundary dispute to keep New Delhi off-balance. India is also where the most revered Tibetan, the 14th Dalai Lama lives in exile. There is now a two-pronged effort by China to deal with the consequences of the Dalai Lama’s passing and his possible reincarnation outside Tibet: To manage the succession in its own favour, and to Sinicise Tibetan Buddhism. In the “new era” of Xi Jinping, Chinese policy continues to combine repression and development activities. Dr. Lobsang Sangay talks about the significance of Tibet in India-China relations.
