India's play in Tibetan religious politics has always been a high stakes game.

But he incalculably damaged the army’s reputation, not just in Kashmir, but anywhere that video is seen, says Ajai Shukla. It testifies to the resilience of Indian public debate that four weeks after Major Nitin Leetul Gogoi, an army officer in Kashmir’s Budgam district, tied an innocent civilian to his jeep as a human shield against stone-throwing mobs, criticism ...

The new faces of Kashmir's protests are a problem for India

After threats on Dalai, China proposes 'treaty of good neighbourliness'

The Chinese envoy recommends an early harvest on the border issue while maintaining peace and tranquillity in the border areas, reports Ajai Shukla. China's ambassador to India, Luo Zhaohui, has spelt out a four-step road map to implement a "long-term vision for China-India relations", that would reduce tensions at a time when Beijing has reacted strongly to the Dalai Lama's recent visit to Arunachal Pradesh.

Beijing is clearly rattled by the Dalai Lama's visit. Unlike the 2009 visit, which was a four-day religious tour, the current visit is a high-decibel, 10-day affair, without the fig leaf of a "religious event", reports Ajai Shukla. The first time the Dalai Lama came to the Tawang tract of Arunachal Pradesh in 1959, he was fleeing Mao Tse-tung's Red Army after Lhasa and its surroundings had exploded in revolution against communist oppression. New Delhi's role in the Dalai Lama's perilous flight ...
