Suggested China policy

SUB : DEVELOPMENT AGENDA . SERIES - XVIII .
SUGGESTING INDIA'S CHINA POLICY.
A. THE ISSUE .
Due to long stint of Congress Govts in India , border defense management of the country has considerably weakened vis a vis China . While China has created good infrastructure like roads , rails and cantonments on its side of the border , India has done pretty little or nothing at all . The net result is that China is displaying its muscle power to India every now and then . China violates the sanctity of border with impunity at will . Successive Congress Govts at centre had avoided the settlement of border issue with China because of their weak and non serious policies towards China even while lot many opportunities were available to sort out and settle the vexing issues . Indian political leadership were short sighted and forgot the basic principal that opportunities come with a flicker and need to be grabbed immediately when surface . In matters of nation & public issues our politicians are pretty LAZY but in personal matters they act fast track .
Now India has reached a stage where it is in no position to face China and dictate terms to it . India is at the receiving end and China acts at will . Even if new NDA regime wishes to confront it , it will take some time for India to build border infrastructure and come out of sluggishness to stair China in the face.
B. STRATEGY SO FAR .
With a view to live peacefully , most countries of the world have embraced one block of super powers or the other . That way they live peacefully without having to invest substantially on defense . India is an exception which wishes to live in its own make believe world of self pride and false status away from ground realities and without having gained any experience from time & events. India becomes magnanimous when it is called upon to support China for UN seat or Pakistan for Common Wealth or Non Aligned seat . But contrary is not true . China uses all tricks of diplomatic book at its disposal to deny India a seat in UN or a seat in Nuclear Club . Tonal quality of this failed Indian diplomacy has been set long back by Pt. Nehru and non of his successors had the guts to change this course of Indian Diplomacy .
C. INDIAN CLOSED MINDSET .
One of the greatest fear in all Indian Political minds which has also been successfully implanted in the India public mind is that America is a hegemonist imperialist monster having intent to enslave India. Both Indian politicians and public feel that US should be kept at arms length and every time we must oppose any move US takes for world peace and harmony and that all its moves must be viewed with suspicion . This is cold war period Indian myth stemming from cold war days and has proved wrong since Vietnam war. But Indian diplomats & politicians seldom learn from world events . Had US been hegemonist , it would have stayed put in Vietnam at any cost but it was wise enough to change stand and correct course . US went to Iraq and pulled out after regime change . US went to Afganistan and pulled back after stablising democracy . Similarly US went to many other countries for re-establishing endangered peace for small periods and pulled back . Had US intention been undemocratic like BRITAIN in the past , it would have enslaved the countries it went into . For such a powerful country like US could not exited out against its own will. What this proves ? It proves that INDIAN politicians and diplomats were totally out of place in their assessment of US . Nor do they do course correction midway , based on events unfolding . IT PROVES BEYOND DOUBT THAT US HAS NO TERRITORIAL DESIGNS ON ANY COUNTRY OF THE WORLD . All that it is concerned about is world peace . If the world is progressing today , SAY THANKS TO US who is guarding world peace and dignity of human beings across the globe .
Look the Indian adamantile line of thinking . While India refused to support US on any world issues , it expected US to help, in its own foreign relations issues and relations with other countries and UN permanent seat . While hoards of Indians have been going to and migrating to US for decent living , successive Indian Govts have always been criticizing US policies to please socialist lobby within , cold war communism globally and communal Muslim World . Is it not height of INDIA hypocrisy ?
D. SOLUTION TO CHINA POLICY.
After articulating the above back ground briefly , I now wish to come to our China policy . In my opinion , India should take following steps to counter CHINA till it is in a position to stare CHINA in the face of its own .
1. India should reopen its stand on TIBET and support Tibet's cause for independence.
2. Allow US observation posts on HIMALAYAN border to keep eye on CHINA .
3. Take US and other countries help to rapidly build border infrastructure on its border with China .
4. Strengthen defense manufacturing sector with new technology based on 100% FDI.
5. Create new CANTONMENTS on China border .
6. Chalk out strategy to cut off TIBET from China in case of unforeseen war forced upon INDIA.
7. Encourage freedom movement in TIBET .
8. Offer refueling , port facilities and provisions replenishment & other essentials to US FLEETS stationed in INDIAN ocean and others visiting.
With these actions China will be forced to rethink on its relations and attitude towards India . Also as a positive fall out , CHINA's nefarious designs will be exposed to the world through active US MONITORING from observation posts . NDA Govt will be well advised to shun this age old doctrine of not allowing active engagement with US on our soil .
IT IS FOOD FOR THOUGHT FOR INDIAN POLITICIANS AND DIPLOMATS ALIKE.
