DHARAMSHALA, Jan. 22: A conference of ‘young Indian scholars’ deliberating on various fields of Tibetan studies began this morning here at the College for Higher Tibetan Studies, Sarah. The conference, first of its kind, saw 22 scholars from over 10 different Universities and educational institutions around India at the exile seat of the Tibetan diaspora.

The conference organized by the exile Tibetan government known officially as the Central Tibetan Administration’s think tank Tibet Policy Institute (TPI) is premised around the core theme of ‘Guru-Chela Relationship: Bonds between India and Tibet’.

The special guest of the inaugural ceremony Dr. Kuldip Chand Agnihotri, the Vice-Chancellor of Central University of Himachal Pradesh, said, “While there are many themes explored in the larger field of Tibetan studies, there is a need for research studies on the progression, prospects and dynamics of the Tibetan freedom movement. It is a delicate matter and needs to be researched.”

The seasoned academic and author also said that India needs to look at its Tibet policy anew with its own security and defence in mind in the face of a growing Chinese threat in the sub-continent.

Ph.D. Research Scholar Mr. Chandra Sekaran G. from the Dept. of Politic and Public Administration, University of Madras told Phayul that loosing Tibet to China is a “diplomatic failure” on India’s part. He further opined that the coming years will see China shoot off in the hierarchy of the pecking order in both the global and Asian context and China’s diligent fielding of alliances in South-Asian countries is bound to bear dividends at the peril of India’s rise in the sub-continent.

The Education minister of the CTA, Dr. Pema Yangchen, Sarah college’s Director and Deputy Director, noted scholar of Buddhist Studies, Prof. Hira Paul Negi also attended the opening event.

The three-day conference will cover studies on Indo-Tibetan Relations in Dehradun: Case Study of Guru-Chela or Journey of Mutual Dialogue? Multiculturalism: Understanding Tibetan Refugees Struggle to reclaim identity, Implications of Ramayana in Indo-Tibetan Interactions: a study, Impact of Modernization on Different Sects of Buddhism in Ladakh (India), among others from scholars from Delhi University, JNU, University of Madras.
