Five points why TIBET should survive…

1. Geographical Significance:

Tibet has been geographically considered as the Third pole of the world for bearing the largest concentration of glaciers outside the polar caps of the earth. This serves as the source of about at least one sixth of the global population and more clearly as the heart of Asia. This gracious significance of Tibetan Plateau is being degraded and exploited at a very high rate due to the current activities taking place around the world and most importantly within Tibet, exploiting the natural resources at an ignorant pace, fueling the global warming process. The catastrophic exploitation of Tibetan forest, mines and other natural resources taking place within Tibet will make the whole world pay for it,,,

2. Political Significance:

Tibet has historically been located as a buffer state between the two of largest countries in the world playing a very importance role in the sustenance of peace and friendship in the Asian continent. China and India though share a common historical background of religious belief; Buddhism, they are the two most populated countries of the world. The quest for more land for the Mainland China has always been under their expeditions and Tibet had been insulating that effect towards the South-Eastern part of Asia. Without this buffer state between these giants, we have seen how much economic waste is being made for border securities, the influence of Maoist activities in the other states like Nepal, Pakistan, etc…

3. Source of H. H. the Dalai Lama:

Every part of the world today is dying to invite H. H, the Dalai Lama to their country and bless it and its people with the kind of words and wisdom he has to offer for the world peace, harmony and universal responsibility. An extraordinary personality; the incarnation of the Chenresig to the Tibetans, the Dalai Lama is someone the world has never seen with such power of promoting compassion, human values and unity. Perhaps the world will never see such a personality again if Tibet does not survives…

4. Weight of Human Values:

The survival of Tibetan nation will be a question of survival of the much talked about human values of humanity. The dissolution Tibet will mark the dissolution of human values, fundamentals rights, freedom of live at large. The bar is high here and we are waiting for the whole world to make the decision together, not alone  by any giant country like China…

5. Power of Truth V/s Power of Strength:

The issue of Tibet has been a fight between the power of Truth and the power of strength. The most important point of all the five points about the survival of Tibet is this one. This will point is important to prove the most famous axiom in the world, i.e., There is no powerful might than the truth! If truth is to survive in this world against the forceful annexation by might, then the case of Tibet must be resolved in favour of truth with the back up of the whole world because if it does not happen now, it will be very difficult to happen in any future endeavours…
