Description Contents
Tibetan Conundrum is a definitive and wide ranging account of the Tibetan nation and civilisation. Nowhere could it be traced that Tibet was ever a part of China before it was invaded in 1950-51 by the People's liberation Army. Nor could it be ascertained, how and when it became part of China as claimed by the people's Republic of China. The book is a reminder to the democratic world that here is a nation which has perished as a result of a military aggression and its civilisation is at the verge of extinction. Its peace loving and benign Buddhist people, in exile and in Tibet, are a speechless lot, witnessing the disappearance of their homeland and unique civilisation.

In the aftermath of aggression in 1950-51 and signing of the 17 point agreement, Tibet became an integral part of China with a promise of internal autonomy. In 1956, riots culminated in repression and flight of the Dalai Lama to India in 1959.

The book includes chronology of events, physiology, political boundaries, assessed mineral resources, hydrology, demography, assessed deployment of Chinese weapons of mass destruction, air fields and other military infrastructure in Tibet. There are annexure of international treaties since ninth century AD between Tibet and other sovereign states supporting the text, in addition to other factual documents and statements. The text is also supported by maps and rare pictures.
