Tibet embarks on a bright path of development after peaceful liberation


Although, don’t know what has been written or spoken about the Tibet Autonomous Region of China before today, but today we are going to talk about today’s Tibet Autonomous Region, which is known for its beauty, but in the past 70 Very few people know the development that has taken place here since decades.

With the unremitting efforts of the Communist Party of China (CPC), Tibet achieved its peaceful liberation in the year 1951, and walked straight from the dark and backward feudal serfdom to the bright path of socialism. Since then, there has been no looking back for Tibet. And on the path of continuous development, it kept moving forward with confidence. It would not be wrong to call it a long jump. Tibet today is a successful example of China’s leapfrog development.

Over the past seven decades, the economic output of the Tibet Autonomous Region has increased more than 300 times. The per capita settlement income of rural residents has seen an increase of more than 400 times. Average life expectancy has more than doubled from 35 years to 72 years. China has added a new chapter of development even in this extremely remote area with its determination and hard work. An example of this is the railway connecting Beijing to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet Autonomous Region. This railway is the first railway connecting Tibet Autonomous Region to the rest of China. Earlier no one could even imagine a railroad in Lhasa, but China accepted this insurmountable challenge and built this railroad. Today the Beijing-Lhasa train departs Beijing daily and arrives at the Lhasa railway station two days later. arrives, this train takes approximately 40:33 hrs to cover a distance of 3,757 kms and cross 8 provinces.

In 2021, China announced it would build a massive dam on the lower reaches of the Yarlung Zangbo to generate up to 70 GW of electricity, three times the country’s Three Gorges Dam, which is the world’s largest in terms of installed capacity. It is the largest hydroelectric plant in It was one of several other hydroelectric projects announced by China to generate clean energy and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.

Lhasa has always attracted philosophers, Rahul Sankrityan, an Indian philosopher whose original name (Kedar Pandey) wrote about his Lhasa visit which he made in 1929-30 via Nepal. Since the recruits were not allowed to travel to Tibet at that time, he did this journey in the guise of a beggar. From this you can imagine how strong his attraction towards Lahsa must have been.

Today, the Chinese government is taking many important steps for the all-round development of the Tibet Autonomous Region, whether it is deepening its Belt and Road cooperation with neighboring countries, or hosting the Tibet Tourism and Culture Expo and the Trans-Himalayan Forum for International Cooperation Whether it is to provide greater international exposure to its ethnic cultures, including Tibetan science, Tibetan medicine and Tibetan pharmacy, the Chinese government is committed to the development of Tibet.

The Tibet Autonomous Region today is a vivid illustration of China’s progress in democracy and human rights. People of all ethnic groups have full and equal rights in political, economic, social and other aspects. In the Tibet Autonomous Region, ethnic minorities account for 90 percent of the members of the provincial People’s Congress and various levels of the People’s Political Consultative Conference. Freedom of religious belief and minority cultures is fully protected and continues to develop.

Today’s Tibet Autonomous Region has gracefully integrated development and nature into itself. The Tibet Autonomous Region today is an important window of China’s openness and cooperation, as can be gauged from the nearly 160 million visits by Chinese and foreign tourists to the Tibet Autonomous Region from 2016 to 2020. I also hope that one day I can travel to this beautiful and attractive place from heaven and observe the diversity, culture, and valleys here closely.(Reporter-Devendra Singh)
