Resist China’s Cartographic

Aggression against India

by V. Sundaram IAS and

Praveen Shanker Pillai

China has roiled the diplomatic waters in the region by publishing a new map that lays claim to swaths of the South China Sea that encompass almost all of Southeast Asia. The new Chinese map also shows Arunachal Pradesh as Chinese territory.

Professor Lee Yunglung at the South China Sea Institute of Xiamen University said that the map raises the South China Sea issue to a level of prominence equal to China's decades-long disputes with Japan over the East China Sea and the Senkaku Island.

He said the publication of the map serves a two-layered purpose. Domestically, the map "enhances Chinese citizens' understanding of China's sovereignty" over the South China Sea. On the international stage, the map gives a "more comprehensive narrative of the historical justification for China's claims of sovereignty" over the disputed area.

See the Chinese cartographic aggression at:

Chinese cartographic aggression has always preceded their actual military aggression. This has happened first with Tibet in 1950 and with Arunachal Pradesh, then, North East Frontier Province, and also with Aksai Chin in 1962.

In a Cartographic counter measure the Government of India should publish maps showing Tibet and Xingiang as separate from China in all their official publications. Let the Chinese learn that Indians too can play their game.

The Chinese have irritated the Modi Government by continuing to issue stapled visas to people of Arunachal Pradesh who wanted to visit China. A reciprocal action would be issuing stapled visas to people of Xingiang and Tibet.

The Hans, who are lording it over China, have developed an imperialist mindset. They cannot treat smaller neighbours with respect as sovereign countries. For them all smaller neighbours are vassals. They treat the Russians and the Americans with respect, fearing the military strength of these two powers.

The Congress Governments, since the time of Jawaharlal Nehru, never respected and defended India’s borders. As a result the Chinese continued to violate Indian borders with unfailing regularity. The Han Communists of China respect only those countries, who have strength and are willing to use that strength.

The new Modi Government has to treat all Chinese violations seriously, whether they are border skirmishes or cartographic aggression. Until the Han Communists of China learn to behave in a civilized manner Indian Government has to be not merely reactive, but even deliberately provocative.

by V. SUNDARAM I.A.S (retd.) 

In the context of the ongoing controversy relating to insidious attempts being made by some of the remnants of the earlier corrupt Sonia Gandhi UPA Regime, to make Gopal Subramanian, former Solicitor General of India, a Supreme Court Judge, I felt that it is absolutely necessary in the larger cause of public interest, to present a few excerpts from my article, which I had written in my blog in November 2010.


Solicitor General Gopal Subramanian misuses his official position to illegally HELP 2G Spectrum Fraud Union Telecom Minister A Raja.

Excerpts from my article titled ‘Saboteur General of India or Solicitor General for Union Minister A.Raja’ dated 14th November 2010

“Is Gopal Subramaniam a Solicitor General of India (SGI) or Saboteur General (SG) of India? He has brought permanent disgrace and infamy to the noble legal profession. He should be made to quit from the exalted Office of the Bar Council of India. Just as a former Chief Justice of Supreme Court of India allowed his official residence to be used as the private Real Estate Business headquarters of his beloved sons, this shameless Solicitor General of India (SG) has used his residence to function as the legal headquarters for protecting the corrupt Union Minister A.Raja in the Case relating to the Himalayan Mega Fraud 2G Spectrum Case pending in the Supreme Court of India. Gopal Subramaniam was the ‘chamcha’ of the most corrupt Former Union Shipping and Transport Minister T.R.Balu. Now he is functioning as the 'chamcha’ of the Union Minister A.Raja. Thus Gopal Subramaniam has become the unsought Saboteur General of India (SG) on the one hand and the much sought after Solicitor general of India (SGI) for Union Minister A.Raja.”

“It has been widely reported in the Press that a meeting of CBI and Enforcement Directorate Officials took place at the Official residence of Gopal Subramaniam the Solicitor General of India on 28th October 2010 to discuss the 2G Spectrum Fraud Case. Anitha Shenoy, the Advocate for A.Raja, was also present, though she had no locus standi to participate at that meeting. This ‘meeting’ was ‘designed’ by the SGI to facilitate Anita Shenoy in the ongoing 2G Spectrum Corruption Case in the Supreme Court. This SGI had summoned CBI’s Investigative Officer Vivek Priyadarshi and DIG S.K.Palsania for that meeting with the hidden purpose of helping Anitha Shenoy and not assisting the Enforcement Agencies of the State like the CBI in effectively conducting the prosecution of the case.”

“It has been reported in the Press that at this meeting the SGI introduced Anitha Shenoy to the Enforcement Officers. SGI requested these officers to brief Anitha Shenoy. Quite unlike the SGI, the D.I.G. Palsania conducted himself with great dignity, moral courage and high sense of public responsibility by strongly objecting to the openly nefarious and shameful gesture of sg to sabotage the due legal process of correct investigation of the case against Union Minister A.Raja.”

“D.I.G. Palsania told the SGI: “We have nothing to do with Raja’s advocate and we are not supposed to talk to her. We will report only to the Director of the CBI and not even to you and much less to the private advocate for Union Minister Raja. We cannot be dictated to. We are under no official obligation to report to anybody about the progress of the probe.” Ignoring SGI’s illegal and immoral instructions, these officials then walked out of the meeting.”

“Immediately thereafter they brought SG’s open interference on behalf of Union Minister A. Raja to the notice of the CBI Director Ashwani Kumar. It has been reported that CBI Director told Union Law (less!)Minister Veerappa Moily: “We demand a new Counsel in the place of this SG. We do not want to entertain Gopal Subramaniam anymore”."

“After the controversial meeting on 28-10-2010, the SGI claimed “illness” in order to absent himself from the next hearing at the Supreme Court of India on October 29th 2010. Raja’s advocate had informed the Supreme Court of the SGI’s “illness”. Mercifully for the people of India, the CBI was represented by Additional Solicitor General Harin Raval on that day.”

Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley has told a TV news channel: “It’s surprising how an advocate pleading for an accused is in connivance with the CBI. Both the investigating agency and the advocate are sitting together to try and bail out A Raja”.


Gopal Subramanian telling blatant lies to the Supreme Court of India while holding the post of Solicitor General.

I am also giving a few excerpts from another article which I wrote in the same month.

“Two years ago Dr Subramanian Swamy exposed the Himalayan corruption of DMK Party nominated Union Telecom Minister A. Raja in the 2G spectrum allocation scam by furnishing irrefutable documentary evidence to the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and sought the latter’s permission under the ‘Manual of Rules of Union Government Business’ to prosecute Union Minister A. Raja.”

“The Prime Minister sat over this letter like an obdurate low level baboo and took no action on Dr Swamy’s letter for several months. Subsequently Dr Swamy sent several letters reminding the Prime Minister about the need for according sanction to prosecute Minister A. Raja. On each occasion Dr Swamy furnished newer and more and more unassailable documentary evidence to establish a prima facie case against the criminal misconduct of Minister A. Raja.”

“Only on two occasions, Dr Swamy received a letter from the Government during the last two years. After a lapse of more than one year, the Prime Minister sent a letter to Dr Swamy stating that the matter was being referred to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The second letter sent to Dr Swamy was from Union Minister Raja and that too after several months of inordinate delay. The joke about this letter is that Union Minister Raja had stated that the Prime Minister had chosen to forward to him the original letter of Dr Swamy seeking Prime Minister’s permission to prosecute Union Minister Raja! How could the Prime Minister forward Dr Swamy’s original letter addressed to him to the accused Minister Raja? That is why I say that the lawless law of the Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi overrides the Law of the Constitution!”

“The Solicitor General of India Gopal Subramaniam --- nay the SABOTEUR GENERAL OF INDIA --- incorrectly informed the Supreme Court that the Prime Minister’s office had promptly sent reply letters to Dr Subramanian Swamy in respect of every letter received by them from him.”

“Dr Subramanian Swamy exposed the walkie-talkie fraud of Gopal Subramaniam when he told the open Court that Gopal Subramaniam was treating routine acknowledgement letters sent by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) to him from time to time as documents of high state policy. Dr Subramanian Swamy had told the Court that these routine interim letters had not at all touched upon the substantive issue raised by him in his original letter to the Prime Minister.”

My comments today, 24th June 2014:

Gopal Subramanian abused his authority as Solicitor General of India to protect the criminal interest of the then Union Telecom Minister A. Raja. That is why I called him the Saboteur General of India.

Gopal Subramanian brazenly lied to the Supreme Court of India that the then Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh had promptly sent replies to all the letters of Dr Subramanian Swamy on the 2G Spectrum Scam.

Gopal Subramanian demonstrably proved that he was incapable of resisting political pressures from the highest level in the UPA Government. Such a man will be a national disaster as a Supreme Court Judge.

Dear Mr Prime Minister,

Please permit me to introduce myself. I belong to the 1965 Batch of the Indian Administrative service in the Tamil Nadu Cadre. My profile is available in my blog link

You might recall that you gave me an opportunity to meet you in your office in Ahmadabad in January 2009 when you graciously introduced me to all the members of your Cabinet. You were also kind enough to tell me that you had read many of my articles on our national affairs.

815 Million strong electorate has voted overwhelmingly in your favour and elevated you to the Highest Executive Position of the Office of the Prime Minister of India. As a great public servant, you were elected thrice with overwhelming majority as the Chief Minister of Gujarat. In this capacity, you succeeded magnificently in transforming Gujarat State into the most developed and prosperous state in Bharatvarsha, apart from being it’s best administered state. God has now given you the splendid opportunity to apply your Moolamantra of ‘Maximum Governance through Minimum Government’ to the whole of Bharatvarsha.

The massive mandate given to the BJP in general and to you in particular has placed you in an exalted position of unassailable Political and Administrative Authority duly empowering you to give directions on a vast scale throughout our country --- from the Rann of Kutch in the West to Arunachal in the East, from Ladakh in the North to Kanyakumari in the South. I feel as if you are Walking with Destiny and that all your past life of struggle, unremitting toil and sacrifice has been but a preparation for this Hour and for this Trial. Your warnings to our countrymen during the last one year have been so numerous, so detailed and have been so terribly vindicated, that no one can now gainsay you. I have no doubt that you must now be having a profound sense of relief having been duly empowered by our people to liberate Bharatvarsha from the quagmire of UPA Government’s Himalayan corruption, malignancy of maladministration, runaway inflation, grave threats to our Internal and External Security and such other grievous afflictions. Our countrymen have thrown out our former Prime Minister on account of his Inefficiency, Ineffectiveness, nay, Listlessness. Dr Manmohan Singh became a willing prisoner of his Pathetic Paradox; Decided only to be undecided, resolved only to be irresolute, adamant for drift, solid for fluidity and all powerful on paper only to be impotent in practice.

During the last 12 days after your assumption of charge as the Prime Minister of India, you have already taken several bold decisions to honour not only the promises made in the BJP Election Manifesto but to also redeem the pledges you have made to the people of India during the hundreds of massive electoral rallies you addressed across the length and breadth of Bharatvarsha between September 2013 and May 2014.

Creation of a Special Investigation Tribunal (SIT) to track down Black Money, announcement of Plans to Clean Up the Holy River Ganga, to make that River navigable from Triveni to the Bay of Bengal, Interlinking of Rivers, stern measures to put down Maoist violence and such other long awaited Initiatives have already earned for you a boisterous and buoyant appreciation of our teeming millions. ALL THIS IS NOT THE END, NOT EVEN THE BEGINNING OF THE END, BUT ONLY THE END OF THE BEGINNING.

Millions and Millions of people in our country are waiting with bated breath the stern steps that you are anticipated to take to revive the Indian Economy, to give a Big Push to the Manufacturing Sector and Agricultural Sector, to put down all-pervasive Corruption at all levels of Governance, to tackle the problem of Massive Unemployment, to finally to bring down the prices of all the essential commodities, to give a sense of security to our women and to give a sense of purpose and direction to our youth.

One of the great saints of Vedic India said it for all time when he gave this Message: “IF ANY MAN SEEKS FOR GREATNESS, LET HIM FORGET GREATNESS AND ASK FOR TRUTH AND HE WILL FIND BOTH.” Through your life and example, you have given cubic content to these words of Vedic Wisdom. The common people look up to you mainly because you are a fearless champion of stern grim and scorching truth. I have no doubt whatsoever that even the ever-shifting and dangerous exigencies of politics will never persuade you to make compromises on your duly declared and Cherished National Goals.

There are times, perhaps once in sixty years when there is a sea-change in politics. It then does not matter, what you say or what you do. There is a tectonic shift in what the public wants and what it approves of. I am convinced that such a sea-change has been brought about by the 2014 Lok Sabha Polls and all of it has been for the Nationalistic and people-centered Agenda of their beloved leader Narendra Modi.


With warm regards and profound respects,

Yours Sincerely
