On May 08, 2020, 75-Years after the Victory in Europe, I want to claim that there will be no Peace without preparing for War. I am specifically speaking about Peace, Freedom, and Justice for the Tibetan people. During the concluding phase of World War II, after the celebration of Victory in Europe, Tibet received a golden opportunity to prepare for War to prevent the Chinese Aggression of 1950.

I ask my readers to learn about the Hump Flights which essentially describe the beginning of ‘The Cold War’ in Asia. Apart from defeating the Japanese aggression in China, the US was deeply concerned about the spread of Communism to mainland China. At the same time, Tibet was concerned about its own security. Tibetans were concerned about the military power of both the Nationalists and the Communists who were fighting to gain control over the mainland China. The US delivered arms and ammunition to Tibet using the Hump Flights. That military assistance was inadequate and insufficient to meet the security challenge to Peace and Freedom in Tibet. Between 1945 and 1950, Tibet missed this golden opportunity to prepare for War that would have prevented the Chinese military conquest in October 1950.

A SQUIRREL STORY BRINGS BACK THE MEMORY OF JANUARY 21, 1974 AT CHAKRATA MILITARY HOSPITAL

January 21 is Squirrel Appreciation Day. My reflections on “Chakrata Karma” with the help of a Squirrel Story.

January 21 is Squirrel Appreciation Day. It was established by Christy Hargrove, a wildlife rehabilitator from North Carolina, to draw attention to the importance of these remarkably widespread creatures. Native to five continents and currently living on six (there’s no Antarctic squirrel), there are about 285 species of squirrels in the world, ranging from the tiny African pygmy squirrel to the Bhutan giant flying squirrel (when in Bhutan, be ready to duck).

Like most squirrels, the Eurasian red squirrel pictured here eats primarily nuts and berries. It also has a habit of burying caches of food for later consumption—and even ‘pretending’ to bury food to mislead other animals that might be watching. But squirrel brain capacity being what it is, the squirrel inevitably forgets where some of the food has been buried. Out of that grows one of the humble squirrel’s most important roles in the forest ecosystem: It’s an inadvertent planter of new trees and bushes. Three cheers for the squirrel!
