Overview for Dragon's Shadow Over Arunachal: A Challenge to India's Polity

As the first governor of Arunachal Pradesh in 1987-90, the author travelled extensively through the state, interacted with the people and got acquainted with their social and cultural heritage, which he vividly describes in the book. In 1962, he had dealt with issues in the Defence Ministry after the debacle. As the governor, after visting the border areas in the state, he got valuable insight into the border dispute between the two countries.

The author believes that the Dragon's shadow over Arunachal is a ominous signal. With its growing economics and military prowess, China's claim over Arunachal should no longer be taken lightly. The border dispute is threatening to become a territorial one. So far as discussions on the issue are concerned, we have been prisoners of our past as inheritors of our northern borders from the British and the age-old belief of peaceful co-existence with China.

Instead of endless talks, negotiations need to be done at a high political level to settle the border issue, keeping in mind what Dr. B.R. Ambedkar had said: While boundary marking is the job of the surveyors, boundary making is the responsibility of statesmen.
