[IAC#RG] Second. From Roy

I for one am not a "political fringe element" although I voted for AAP  in Delhi only to reject both Congress and BJP. BUT I am very concerned about China's presence in Tibet, Nepal, Baluchistan, Burma, and now Bhutan, our only friendly neighbour, as an Indian citizen.

My concern stems from the Indian army fiasco in 1962 when our troops retreated before even a shot was fired by the PLA. Please read Shadow States: India, China and the Himalayas, 1910-1962, by Berenice Guyot-Rechard. 2017. Delhi: Cambridge University Press.

Fake nationalism, posturing, and rank ignorance (of history,  geography, cartography, geopolitics and of "the enemy"s own competitive ideas of nationalism) won't help us save our territorial sovereignty next time round.
