Chinese President Xi Jinping is on his maiden visit to India and returns home today.
Among a host of issues and actors that took the centre stage before and during Xi’s visit were the Tibetans in India who were on an overdrive to make appeals, sign petitions and organise protests against his tour.
But, the question remains. What do the activists, the Tibetan parliament based in Dharamsala and its head, Lobsang Sangay, sympathisers in India as well as the Dalai Lama – who are using Xi’s visit as an opportunity to remind the Indian and the Chinese governments of a ‘Tibet issue’ – really expect when they ask Narendra Modi to ‘save’ or ‘stand up’ for Tibet?
