Did you Know? Some Monpas' Role During the Indo-China War
Maj. Gen. Tewari, a senior war veteran who spent over 7 months as a prisoner of war in Tibet, wrote: "In Kameng Frontier Division (Tawang) alone, they had numerous local individuals on their pay list." They possessed precise plans and knowledge of the country; otherwise, how could they have built 30 kilometres of road between Bumla and Tawang in less than two weeks? Although the bulk of the Monpas were patriotic, it was an indirect partnership with China.
