India vs Nepal Border Dispute


Greetings, friends! 

borders without a visa, they can also reside and work in each other's countries But these relations have begun to sour over the past few days and years Recently, theWhy did it start?We will try and find out about all of this in today's video Come, let us see This controversy surfaced within the Indian media when Nepal came out withwhich is under India's control today If you look at their new map, this area is a triangular shaped disputed area in the north western tip of Nepal This area is the eastern most tip of Uttarakhand This entails an area of around 300 square kilometres And the northmost village/place is Limpiyadhura The south- eastern part of it is Lipulekhbelieves that this area rightfully belongs to Nepal whereas as India believes it is India's Before we address the question of who is right and what the history of this land is, First, I'd like to tell you that this controversy broke out due to two events which happened around 6 months ago The first event happened on November 2019 The Modi government released a new map of India, in which the region of Kalapani was claimed to be under India, which triggered the Nepal government The second event happenedThe purpose of this road was to aid the people on the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra as per claims Because above this disputed area lies Tibet, where the Kailash Mansarovar is situated Before the construction of this road, the yatris had to go to the Kailash Mansarovar via Sikkhim It was a trek of 5 days After the construction of thisas they believed that Lipulekh pass comes under Nepal and they also believed that if India had to construct this road, they should have consulted Nepal first and worked outprotests regarding this erupted in Nepal The Army chief of 15th May, said that the protests in Nepal were influenced by China This further upset the people in Nepal andAnd which country does it rightfully belong to?

begins in the 1800s 

Come, let us go through its history first Our story begins in the 1800s, around two hundred years ago, when India was under British rule The Britishers were tryingAnglo Nepalese war of 1814 This battle raged for two years- until 1816- after which, a treaty was signed Treaty of Sugauli- to decide which areas would be controlled by the Britishers and which areas would be controlled by the Kingdom of Nepal How much area would be assigned to both the countries at that time According to the treaty of Sugauli, Nepal lost its area of Sikkhim and Darjeeling That area was ceded to the Britishers And two rivers were made use of to define the kingdom of Nepalof Nepal- if you go along the Mahakali river Let me display a map for you- you will understand better This is Uttarakhand and this is Nepal The boundary had been defined by a red line in Apple maps When I zoom in, you will observe that this red line runs along the river You can see how the entire India-Nepal border has been defined according to this river As I go upstream, this river flows along. But the problem arises where the river splits into two Actually, it would be incorrect to say that it splits. I am going upstream So, this river actually comes from two sources Which source should be chosen to define the border? Upon zooming in, you will notice that clearly, one source appears to be a proper river and the second looks like a rivulet Common sense suggests that the wider stream of water should be used to define constructed So what is the controversy about, then?

 political maps

Only about representing it on their political maps One thing I do concede here is that the Indian government should have been more friendly with the government of Nepal Talks about the construction of the road could have been held with Nepal prior to constructing it and that both countries would benefit from it that the road was being constructed for their pilgrims of the Mansarovar and that this place was also of strategic importance to them So an agreement could be reached together But what is happening today is that Indians are making fun of Nepalis on social media and abusing them Nepalis are writing hate comments against Indians Some Indian politicians are saying that these Nepalis have been sold off to China The Prime Minister of Nepal said that the Indian virus was deadlier than the Corona virus A friendship cannot be maintained among both the countries in this manner And a friendship is essential because Indians and Nepalis are so integrated with one another Think about it- so many Nepalis are employed even in the Indianmight be true to some extent in the rest of the issues But talking about this specific issue- the ongoing border dispute I am of the opinion that China has nothing to do with this And what are the reasons behind this?

Nepal 

holds the same opinion regarding this issue that the ruling party adheres to Almost all the parties there are united over this issue That they believe this area to be theirs So then, saying that China has influence over one party makes no sense There is no logic to this In the end, I'd only like to say that I hope that these two countries solve this issue through discussions This is very important because the connection/relation between Indians and Nepalis is very strong and deep Several Nepalis work in India and under the Indian government as well as in the army Both sides would have to remain sensitive while solving this issue and would have to understand one another and understand each other's perspectives so that a solution can be worked out I hope you would have liked this video.
