Rajya Sabha MP from Harivansh, Bihar
World politics saw two shocking news. First, after 40 years, US Health Minister Alex visited Taiwan. Taking the message of friendship of the American President. In 1979, the US broke off an official relationship with Taiwan, supporting China. Second, the US will sell 66, F-16 fighter jets to Taiwan. How did this background become?
On the Indo-China War (1962), 'The Times of India War' was written by Navali Maxwell, Delhi correspondent of the London Times, (1970). India proved to be the attacker. He has a few more books on the development of China. Writing against India, in the same proportion. The world's neutral scholars of the subject found that Maxwell's advocacy in the book is clear.
Maxwell himself showed his real face to the world. Wrote several reports for 'The Times' (London) in the 60s, 'Shattering Democracy of India'. Said, 'Indians will soon contest the fourth and final general election. The great experiment of developing India in a democratic framework has failed. There will be military rule in India immediately. '
How did Maxwell's false facts affect the future of the world and India? What influenced the intellectuals and scholars and policy makers of West and Asia? Chinese leaders gave the top honor to Maxwell's advocacy. The book appeared in 70, Maxwell was summoned to a government banquet in China in 1971.
There Chouen Lai (whom Pandit Nehru had honored the summit) told Maxwell 'Your book has served the truth, China has benefited from it'. This book grew out of making China a superpower. Kissinger wrote in his book 'On China' that he was impressed by it. Considered China right.
In a 2014 interview, Maxwell said, 'When my book appeared in the US in 1971, Kissinger told me that it changed his thinking on China. He gave this book to President Nixon. All these things are now 'on record', in a 1971-72 conversation between Nixon-Kissinger-Mao. While Kissinger was in Beijing, he told Chouen Lai that by reading Maxwell's book it made me feel like the Chinese people could do business. '
America breaks ties with Taiwan, builds diplomatic relations with China. In this way, for the first time, China opened its doors to businesses from the world. Once the American gate opened, the countries of the West and the world including Japan welcomed China. Then China became an economic power on the strength of international trade and manufacturing.
This book is also based on the lies about India, the secret of China's prosperity today. Around 2014, Maxwell released the PDF file of the Henderson Brooks-Bhagat report on the Internet. The Chinese daily 'South China Morning Post' published a headline that Maxwell made public the documents that prove that India instigated China in 1962. This report is a confidential document of the Government of India. Maxwell created a mountain of lies by raising its partial side.
How far did Maxwell's book and China's strategy in making 'hundred lies to truth' go? Sunanda Rai wrote that in 1976 Singapore producer Li Qian visited China for the first time. China's Prime Minister Hua Feng presented Maxwell's book 'India's China War' to Lee. Lee immediately returned the gift, saying it was unilateral.
But on the wrong facts of Maxwell, China continued to enhance the image in the world. Now America is aware of the mistake, so relations with Taiwan are being formed. But the loss of India's image in this book in 50 years, the country is still paying the price.
On the initiative of Sardar Panikkar (Ambassador of India to China 1948-52), Panditji described Tibet as part of China. After the Panchsheel (1954) agreement, the slogan was that there would be no Indo-China war in Panditji's life. There was a point in the agreement, no one would attack each other.
At the Asia-Africa Bandug Conference (1955) India established China's Chouen Lai. At the UN, we played a leading role in bringing China to the world stage. But the lies of Maxwell's book, hardly any of our progressive historians ever revealed? The point-wise disclosure of this lie was done by foreign writers or by the military historians of India.
May we live under the illusion that we are world leaders. They are still living intellectuals of the borrowed mind of the raga country. As the saying goes, history repeats. Now a new cycle of US-Taiwan relations is starting. There are also signs of improvement in India-Taiwan relations. Is this the initial phase of the second chapter of history?
