Kao, who left the R&AW inasked Sidhu in to write a book on Sikkim’s merger. Sidhu was then Joint Secretary at R&AW headquarters. Kao told him that his agency, bifurcated from the Intelligence Bureau (I.B.) inhad mounted two major operations in a span of five years—Bangladesh and Sikkim.

The merger of the erstwhile Himalayan kingdom of Sikkim into India in May was the result of a top secret operation by India’s external intelligence agency, Research & Analysis Wing (R&AW), says a book by a retired senior official who was involved in it.

GBS Sidhu gives an insider's view of the chain of events that led to the merger of Sikkim with India inand outlines the interplay of personalities involved, such as Indira Gandhi, Chogyal. The book, originally published in and later reprinted inattempted to shatter the long-held perception that Sikkim’s merger with India was all smooth and hunky-dory.

Reading Datta-Ray, a sense of guilt and solecism emerges. It makes us believe that democratic India did to Sikkim in the s what Communist China committed in Tibet.

Describing Sikkim’s merger with India as a “momentous event in the annals of modern Indian statecraft”, Menon commends Sidhu’s book for “setting the record straight”.

“The merger of Sikkim has been under–analysed or misinterpreted in previous accounts that drew upon partial or one–sided sources,” says Menon.”. The merger of the erstwhile Himalayan kingdom of Sikkim into India in May was the result of a top secret operation by India’s external intelligence agency, Research & Analysis Wing (R&AW), says a book by a retired senior official who was involved in it.

The following is an excerpt from the book ‘Sikkim-Dawn of Democracy: The Truth Behind The Merger With India’ written by GBS Sidhu, retired. Even the Global Times of China recently threatened to rouse the people of Sikkim to demanding independence.

Credible counter-narratives placing an “Indian” perspective have been absent, or incomplete. GBS Sidhu provides a comprehensive account of the history of Sikkim sinceand of the eventful days leading to its merger with India. Despite its shortcomings, Sunanda K DattaRay's Smash and Grab remains the best-written book on Sikkim's merger with India.

The first edition of Sunanda K DattaRay's Smash & Grab; Annexation of. It was in that G.B.S. Sidhu, a young official with the newly set-up Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW), took charge of the field office in Gangtok in With an insider's view of the events that led to the Chogyal's ouster, he presents a first-hand account of the fledgling democracy movement and the struggle for reforms led by Kazi Lhendup Dorji in a society that was struggling to come.

The book gives frank details: motivating Sikkim Congress to demand follow-up steps of the May 8 agreement from Bajpai or Das, framing new election rules, getting the chief election commissioner of.

The merger of Sikkim into India was a historical event in It started when India presented its offer to the Sikkim leader one last time.

It was a ‘degree turnaround in India’s policy towards the Chogyal, but there already was a secret plan to end the Chogyal’s rule in Sikkim. I greatly enjoyed GBS Sidhu’s book “Sikkim- Dawn of Democracy: The Truth Behind the Merger with India.“ It is a valuable contribution to contemporary history.

The drama leading to the merger of the State with India unfolds itself in a brilliant manner, depicting the role of the dramatis personae in a very objective s: 8.

Several books have highlighted Sikkim’s transition from a monarchy to the 22nd state of India inbut G.B.S. Sidhu’s Sikkim: Dawn of Democracy is possibly the first ‘insider’s account’ of the rapid interactions that ricocheted between Delhi and the Himalayan kingdom’s Palden Thondup Namgyal, the 12th and last Chogyal (king) in the run-up to the signing of the agreement.

An old piece published in Sikkim Express in by S.D. Tshering – former Secretary of the Department of Economics, Statistics, Monitoring and Evaluation (DESME), Sikkim – termed the Sikkim-Darjeeling merger “A tragedy in the making” and went on length to explain how the merger of Sikkim and Darjeeling would shift “the political.

The absorption of Sikkim into the Indian Union was based on certain pre-conditions and solemn assurances given to the Sikkimese people reflected on May 8,Tripartite Agreement, Government of Sikkim Act, and Article F of the Indian Constitution.

Sikkim joined the mainstream of national life with the merger of the state with [ ]. 15 hours ago  This book brings together some of the major events between the mid-nineteenth century when the British started making inroads into Sikkim, and the merger of Sikkim with India in During this period about years, Sikkim changed its status from an independent feudal state to a protectorate of the British Empire, then as a protectorate of.

The merger of Sikkim and India is a 43 years old story now and people should very well be aware of the truth behind the merger. There have many doubts, confusions and rumours regarding the merger.

Some think that there was popular demand for the merge of Sikkim and India. AoOS represents Indian-origin people who have been residents of the state since Sikkim was an independent kingdom prior to its merger with India in “There are serious doubts about Joshi’s intention towards the majority Nepali-speaking community because of his past conducts.

As long as there are voices in Chinese society supporting Sikkim’s independence, the voices will spread and fuel pro-independence appeals in Sikkim,” said Global Times, a newspaper said to be close to the Chinese State. The Sikkim merger with India is a settled issue. China has de facto recognised it inand de jure the year after.

The author has dealt upon some crucial facts in the book. The book remotely reveals the flawed policy of Nehru with regards to Sikkim. However, his daughter Indira course corrects the policy. The book is an interesting read and reference material for all those interested in India's post s: 4.An excellent investigative journalism effort.

The author has been successfully able to neutrally put all point of views in this book regarding the sensitive topic of Sikkim's merger in India. Usually such accounts are biased towards one side or another, but this is a very good piece of work.

I am glad I found this book/5(40).Opinion Sikkim’s merger Memories of the generation that witnessed transfer from a protectorate to Indian statehood should be captured.
