China occupied Tibet in 1951. This changed India’s Indo-Tibet border to the ‘Indo-China’ border overnight. Since then India is facing Chinese music in all it avtars. While Indo-Tibetan border has lost its nature of being the most peaceful and least guarded border of the world to the most tense one, China has used its presence in Tibet to create all imaginable problems for India – be it claims and aggression on India’s territory or using Tibet to shelter and promote terrorism and separatism in India. China’s latest action in Galwan Valley and adjoining parts of Ladakh has put Tibet once again into focus as the root cause of problems of India with China.
