As a beloved son of a Lhasa-Newar, I too do feel that Tibet is never a part of China and find myself penning this feature article against the brutal occupation of Tibet. To put it most frankly, Tibet is an independent sovereign non-aligned democratic federal Buddhist kingdom. I am totally against the tyrannical Sinicization on Tibet instilled by the Communist Regime. The world ought to sharply help the innocent Tibetans remove Maoism from the Shangri-La. The communist ideology but remains treasonous to the poor creed. We are just aware that the authentic philosophy of Maoism belongs to China alone and does not apply to Tibet at all. Autonomy is not what the Tibetans demand but solid independence against the Chinese imperialism. Today Tibet shows up as a Chinese colony; tomorrow it shall be liberated. Don't worry! God shall help us all for a free Tibet. So let us all pray  together for that particular optimism. It shall consume a bit of time of course.
Some declare a long period back both Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet had been paying tribute to the Chinese Emperor back in Beijing. If that be the sheer case, why does Nepal and Bhutan alone remain separate and Tibet only annexed to the Chinese territory today? This is indeed a mockery shed towards a weak landlocked state! What Beijing has exercised absolutely tallies with the old policy of "Might is right" which I am pretty sure won't last long. There arises a vast difference between mainland China and the Himalayan state of Tibet. The principal points that differ in a modest manner virtually include: history, geography, language, scripts, religion, culture, tradition, attire, money, flag, map, politics and the wonder as a world heritage site.  
The last Chinese Emperor, Dr. Sun Yat Sen and Chiang Kai Shek belonging to the Kumintang Regime all had been recognizing Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan as independent nations. What actually counts is a post-war situation. Past is past and no one should dare or bother to consider events that took place before Christ. It is very obvious to notice that China appears to be a greedy country practicing dirty principles only. Their stubborn gluttony wants to grab Taiwan or Formosa also --- a republic which is no doubt purely a free island forever. The Maoists are highly obliged to quit not only Tibet but Manchuria as well.
A gloomy relation must have existed between India and China in the late forties. A new government took over India in 1947 with late Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru as its new leader. Two years after a new government also took over China with Comrade Mao Tse-Tung as its new leader. Well, Nehru proceeded to Beijing in 1949 and had a V.I.P. discussion with Mao face-to-face at a personal level with only two of them in the private chamber. China was to get hold of Tibet whilst India to get hold of Nepal. The political negotiation was duly sanctioned; both willfully agreed on the matter of top conspiracy. This also indicates that Tibet resumes not a part of China at all. Why did not Mao fire Nehru? Instead the former gave in to his encouragement. With someone pushing the Chinese, Beijing did mobilize and started intruding the Tibetan territory most unlawfully since 1951 and in 1959 happened to impose a complete defeat upon the Tibetan citizens. Tibet is the highest tableland in the globe. As the tallest plateau on earth topographically it is also mountainous, very bitter and heavily windy. Thus it took nine long years for the Red Guards to capture it. Not so easy! But down to the cardinal direction of south, India failed in occupying Nepal. They shall keep on lagging behind simply because Nepal is never a part of India by all means. No way!  She fetched her decent membership in the United Nations Organization (U.N.O.) in 1955 although had attempted or appealed in 1949 itself.  A shame on both --- address it Indo-China affiliation or Sino-India affiliation. Both are merciless sinners for sure!
The majority of the Chinese was seen within the Tibetan soils right after 1959. Why had only a minority of them been living on the Tibetan grounds if Tibet was truly a part of China? Concerning any bilateral relation with Tibet, the majority of foreigners who had been residing in the alpine kingdom for centuries numerous having Tibetan wives are none other than the Nepalese alone. Even amongst the Nepalese, strictly speaking, that particular Buddhist community having tied the nuptial knots is the Newar whose mother tongue sounds Tibeto-Burmese in nature. This strongly convinces that Tibet also respectfully belongs to South Asia. All can clearly witness ten liberal countries to be mapped in South Asia including: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma, Ceylon, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Tibet.  China belongs to North Asia or the Far East, a profound conviction that nobody can deny at all. In other words North Asia is counted from the Sino-Tibetan border line, you see.  Justice never occurred in Tibet. Otherwise one Khampa could easily pin down four Chinese straight. Ten Red Guards with modern rifles surround a single Khampa --- what can the latter possibly do? This is not fair! Tibet is bound to get demilitarized as she is too a “Zone of Peace.” The Dalai Lama, as the Living Buddha, proves to be the Religious Head and the Spiritual Leader of the entire Tibetan race. His Holiness Tenzing Gyatso has unanimously been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Hence let it not remain a lost horizon always.
The Chinese should either bear the guts to seize Nepal as well or to quit Tibet straight. One or the other! Teach them to go the square way. The Chinese invasion of Tibet is but a serious offence against human rights. Down with the aggressive Reds!  They have hindered any social feelings; they have violated the Asian solidarity. I would like to congratulate the Chinese in a hearty manner for the relevant progress achieved in China proper, but condemn them for the direct occupation of Tibet seen evidently which their ancestors have never tried before. China, Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and India constitute as five brothers, five sisters of Asia. They are indeed independent countries geographically and should live in sound harmony ever after. 
The Americans of the United States seem to appear cowards on Tibet issue. They helped liberate Kuwait, but why not help Tibet as well. Some comment Washington D.C. has ignored the case due to the dearth of any gas supply. (Many have disclosed this agenda for sure.) So what! They own a lot of gold, musk, wool, etc. This is an unacceptable excuse whatsoever. It would be very absurd and too foolish as well to have Washington D.C. but going after oil countries. Chase the Yankees to love the Shambha-La.  An ally party of multi-nation is desired to support Lhasa and fight off the obnoxious Reds. The U.N.O. is too acting a hypocrite instead of paying ardent attention to the real cause of the Tibetan society. Taiwan and Tibet must both be offered the due opportunities to enter the U.N.O. and obtain valid membership officially. It is high time for her to reveal the sublime truth. Dormant Tibet will soon be resurrected. Glory be the Roof of the World!
