Description About the author Contents
 
Volume 3 of this series "India-Tibet Relation" looks into the consequences of the Chinese presence on the Tibetan plateau. Ironically, the period 1954-1957 saw the first Chinese intrusions into Indian territory, particularly in Barahoti, a small flat grazing ground in today's Uttarakhand.

On the diplomatic front, it starts with the Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai's visit to Delhi in June 1954, followed by Jawaharlal Nehru's trip to Beijing in October; at the end of 1956. It culminates with the visit of the Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama, accompanied by Zhou, to Delhi for the 2500th anniversary of the birth of the Buddha.

We witness the slow erosion of the Tibetan control over the Land of Snow's administration and the rapid building of roads towards the Indian borders...including through the Aksai Chin of Ladakh.
