Let them deal with Chinese as they want. In the bigger scheme of things it makes no difference to us. With the way Chinese take over things, soon there will be anti-Chinese feeling and a non-Communist government will come up.

Let's stop rodha dhona. GoI can maintain it's stand and they can maintain theirs. GoI should encourage Nepal to be more hostile and ask them to publicly call for work & stay privileges for Nepalese to be discontinued.


yechury was foolishly employed by the then GoI to help "resolve" the nepal issue and he, on direct han orders, slyly helped to set up prachanda in power.

Indian commies take orders directly from peking so the hans created this monster. We can undo it all by putting the nepali commies in their rightful place, the garbage bin where the Indian commies currently reside.

Commies in Nepal get their support from the same base as our commies do. Rural and poor areas. To remove them, Nepal has to see prosperity. In a way, if we can do this using Chinese money, it is all the better.

We need to make sure, Nepal retains it's Hindu identity and elections. GoI should encourage Indian pilgrimage in to Nepal, so that there is always a religious link and economic reason. GoI should not give any reason for Nepali commies to use it against us.

That ship has already sailed.

By their own amended constitution, they are in the fatal grip of conversion hungry padres who have already converted a whole lot of these guys.

Next step will be to link up with the similarly converted Indian NE and a new great game may soon begin to espouse the demand of a separate state, just like they prised away east timor.

There has to be some operation clean-up. It is not that late. Maldives can be tamed in one morning and Nepal within one week. World does not care about dictators. We have to explain our National security requirements. we have to explain that such corrections are needed in order to avoid future big wars. Wish IG was still around.

I am all for treating Nepals decision as one taken in its own interests, but every action has consequences which the nepalis have forgotten because we do not enforce them enough. It is ok if they wish to train with china, mozambique,samoa, we should have no issue with it; but then the molly coddling from delhi should stop in terms of port access, freeloading of their people ityadi depending on our interest, all in the name of treating them as adults,not "doodh-paks"(one possessing milk teeth).

Well, I have no problem if Samoa and China are doing Chuma-Chmi. It is about Nepal and it hurts us directly because of open borders. It is like some blood thirsty gang is getting access to your house through servent quarters. Leaders of these countries do not take decisions for good of the country, they are made to take such decisions by Chinese. We can not play ignorant here. We have to take actions, show our resolve and make sure nobody dare to harm our national securities.

There are 2 nepals. The working class which is, by and large, making a living in India and the educated class also benefitting from India and which is hell bent on making trouble for us.

We need to recognise this but not to deal with them separately. A one size fits all policy should work well.

Border controls, work permits, income tax and limited access visas. We should accept nepali reciprocity in all of the above.

good luck with their cheeni affairs. They will quickly make KY jelly as one of their big duty free imports.

rsingh sir, i actually agree with you, i gave examples of ludicrous places to make the same point. In a great world, india would tell nepal and neighbours to jump and they would only ask by how much, but that is not the case now(or ever).
Chetak sir, i have experience of these two faced cretins as there were many nepalis in my college. They were like the pakis in many aspects concerning us, extremely jealous of our any and all achievements, belittling of our customs as weird, instigating a feeling of despondency with regards to our leadership(before modi), and all around behaving like termites. They wanted to live in our country but at the same time behaved as they were doing us a favour of sorts and liked to behave as bhura sahibs, what with their commenting on our social condition and so forth. None of us took their sh*t for long though, and they confined them to themselves.

ricky_v saar,

I had to deal with rich, upper class, opinionated, anti India nepali airline pilots.

They think no end of themselves.

I too have a couple of unfavourable experiences with Nepalis, and some favourable and neutral ones. They don't in general have that quick witted ability Indians often display. You won't hear those grand, philosophical, expressions Indians are known for; they are this earth earthy! There is one highly educated Indian journalist of Nepalese origin, Vijay Singh Thapa, who is as eloquent and sophisticated as any equivalent Indian you can meet.His article in "India Today from 1993" titled "Winds of Change" about a sub-ethnic group in Ladakh near the Tibetan/Chinese border, is as brilliant as anything you'll see in Indian journalism. He must be a very naturalised and Indianised Nepali! Dismaying to hear that educated Nepalese in India can be so anti-India, petty, small, jealous.

I don't understand why many Indians have desires to help a nepal, a srilanka or a Bangladesh. It's as if these indians refuse to acknowledge the partition. They have not gasped the basics of that event.

This dhramic-dharmic nonsense has clogged up the minds of too many Indians. They have an alternate worldview which is contrast to reality. I doubt if they really understood what it meant when the sinhalas leased the hambantota port to the chinese for 99 years. I bet they told themselves that srilanka was a dharmic state and overlooked it just like that.

^^^^ Because there are a lot of people in Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh who are pro India. Do you want to piss them off as well?

We have to be very careful, nuanced and accommodating in dealing with our frenemy neighbours. They are much smaller economies, and human pride means that they will pick on India for one reason or another in a mano-a-mano situation. If a Sri Lankan says "India is dirty and we are so clean" there may be some truth in it but he is saying so because by all other metrics his country is nothing. Duck this provocation, "smile and wave".

Don't forget we have a large Gurkha contingent in the army (both Indian and Nepali nationals). They fight on our side, and they fight to the last man.

We have some specific interests. We don't want Nepal to be a conduit for Pakis - either we increase our covert presence in Nepal, or we build a fence. Pakis can slink through, Chinese will get noticed. They want a fling with the Chinese? Let them go ahead and get burnt, as they surely will. As they get closer to the Chinese, we start treating them like adults; however we do it in the most reasonable manner - we lay out a roadmap identifying restrictions well ahead of time "we will provide free visa on arrival at the border for a 360 day period, starting 2020" - this specific act looks highly reasonable, however it will mean that every Nepali will have to step out of India once a year. We need to calibrate our response, not just lash out.

They will jump and dans as well. We have never tried. We take things lightly until it is too late. what is our threshold ? Chinese Army headquarter in Kathmandu?

Fine example of holding the bull from wrong end. What about Gurkhas whose brother in Nepali army is training with Chinese?

Going on a tangent, I recently watched a documentary on how dogs were raised to be what they are today and it made me sad..... to realize how much potential resources are just wasted by us. As the saying in english goes, "every man for a job", we follow the path of "jack of all trades, dharmic candidates need only apply". Take the case of pakis, it is in their mandate to be a watch dog,to do as his master bids and to just forget about the pesky nuisance of building anything meaningful for themselves; but what do we do instead, we look at the creature in disgust and mouth inanities about righteousness. Pakis are, for better or worse our in in the great game, they certainly are for iranis. So if there is a job about bitching and moaning about how life is unfair, and how big brothers are bad, nepalis are the best fit for it.
This brings me to the indian concept of big brother. In our context, we have a system of doodh-pak/bhath (possessing milk teeth). In any game that is played anywhere in our country, any young'un can ask to play no matter the age group of the people currently playing; at the end of the game, there is a special game like just 1 over underhand, with the field in just for the kid. Nobody questions it, it is like a social contract. I have been on both the ends on numerous occasions, and not once has anybody violated this contract. If the cretins are chaffing at this baby-like treatment, then mayhaps they are better off with allies like chinis.

The fact is Nepal would be an average country in Africa. Per capita GDP, literacy, infant mortality. Only less industrialised.

Bangladesh has twice the per capita income. So the Nepalis are Hindus and buddhists. The only thing that means is that they are in even greater shame.

Indians have nothing against Gurkhas. They have done hard dangerous work. But India needs to pay more attention to Bangladesh. They deserve greater Indian solicitation and can provide markets as well as security to the NE.

Let Nepal learn from Tibet for a decade.

India's returns on investment will be much higher in Nepal than it would ever be in Bangladesh. No matter what you do, elements in Bangladesh who are opposed to India and stooges of Pakistan can never be subdued to a level that can give India some confidence, while in Nepal. similar elements can be shrunk to barely any political relevance. In Nepal being a Hindu country does give India a leverage that is difficult in Bangladesh. Appalling is that China and Pakistan and some western powers have been playing this dirty game right in our backyards for so long and we did not wake up.
