OCT 03 (WTN) - Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a very strategic politician, and it is well known by all Indians. By adopting the strategy he has won in the 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha elections, it proves that Modi is a skilled strategist. Not only Narendra Modi a skilled strategist in the Indian politics, Modi has also proved his diplomacy in foreign policy.

After the Pulwama terror attack, Prime Minister Modi took such diplomatic steps against Pakistan that Pakistan's economic condition is getting worse day by day. International organizations like FATF (Financial Action Task Force) are putting Pakistan in the gray and black list, due to which Pakistan is facing all kinds of difficulties in getting loan.

Not only this, after the removal of Article 370 from the state of Jammu and Kashmir, the way the Modi Government has single-handedly swept Pakistan and exposed the propaganda of Pakistan's human rights abuses in Kashmir, it is clear that the Prime Minister Modi is also a skilled diplomat.

Prime Minister Modi knows that friends or enemies can be changed, but neighbors cannot be changed. Modi knows and wants that there should be peace on the border with China, a neighboring country, so that the diplomatic and economic relations between India and China remain strong. For your information, let us know that there is border dispute between India and China for years. 

There was close to $ 89.6 billion trade between these two countries in FY 2017-18. Prime Minister Modi knows that India will have to work at the diplomatic level to maintain peace on the border and speed up trade relations with China. With this thinking, Prime Minister Modi is preparing to welcome the Chinese President to India in a new way this time.

For your information, let us know that Chinese President Xi Jinping is visiting India next week. By the way, it is common for top leaders of China and India to visit and discuss in each other's countries. But this time Prime Minister Modi is going to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping in Mahabalipuram, a town of Tamil Nadu.

Now you must be wondering that why Prime Minister Modi is going to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping after all in a small ancient city of Mahabalipuram? So for your information, let us know that the meeting of Prime Minister Modi in Mahabalipuram with the Chinese President has some different meaning.

For your information, let us know that the ancient Mahabalipuram town, located about 60 km from Chennai, is an ancient link connecting India and China. In fact, the ancient city of Mahabalipuram had a very long trade relationship with China and perhaps Prime Minister Modi is going to meet Chinese President Jinping in Mahabalipuram to remind him of this relationship.

Mahabalipuram city is an ancient city on the banks of the Bay of Bengal in Tamil Nadu. Mahabalipuram was settled in the seventh century by King Narasimha Dev Burman of the Pallava dynasty. The majestic king Narasimha Dev Burman is also called Mamallapuram in that area, hence Mahabalipuram is also named as Mamallapuram. By the way, another ancient name of this city is also Banpur.

The intention of Prime Minister Modi’s meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Mahabalipuram is to remind China that Mahabalipuram, a city in the south of India, has a strong relationship with China in the field of defense and trade. For your information, let us know that there is almost centuries old relationship between Mahabalipuram and China.

The relationship between the rulers of the Pallava dynasty of Mahabalipuram and China was not an ordinary one, but rather a deep defense relationship between these two. The kings of the Pallava dynasty were so powerful that China had even reached an agreement with the kings of the Pallava dynasty to secure its border with Tibet.

For the information, let us tell that in the eighth century, there was a strategic pact in the field of defense with the king of China and the ruler of Pallava dynasty Narasimhan-2. Let you know that Narasimhan-2 was one of the powerful rulers of the Pallava dynasty. Narasimhan-2 had such an influence over the king of China that China appointed him as the general of southern China bordering Tibet.

Actually, China took this step to protect itself, because China was afraid of Narasimhan-2's power. Afraid of Narasimhan-2, the King of China sent a delegation to King Narasimhan-2. The delegation had a letter from the king written on silk cloth, which included the appointment of Narasimhan-2 as the general of Southern China.

It was a matter of defense relations between the rulers of China and the Pallava dynasty, while there were also developed trade relations between China and Mahabalipuram. The Pallava rulers developed Mahabalipuram as a business hub along the Bay of Bengal. Goods were imported and exported from China through the port of Mahabalipuram. There were trade relations between China and Mahabalipuram for centuries.

Not only this, there were also high level religious relations between China and the Pallava dynasty. Bodhidharma, a prince of the Pallava dynasty, became an example in China when he became a Buddhist monk. In 527 AD, Bodhidharma traveled from Kanchipuram to China via Mahabalipuram. For your information, let us know that Bodhidharma became the 28th father of Buddhism and he was also very popular in China.

Relations between Tamil Nadu and China began with the Pallava dynasty and continued until the Chola dynasty. When the Chinese traveler Xuanzang came to India in the 7th century, he went to Kanchipuram in the kingdom of Pallava dynasty. This was the time when delegations from China and Tamil Nadu used to visit each other.

As part of his diplomacy, Prime Minister Modi is calling Chinese President Xi Jinping to show the glory of Mahabalipuram, as well as conveying to Jinping that at one time a kingdom in the south of India was so powerful, that even the king of China used to fear from him.

At the same time, Modi would also like to clear China that there have been centuries old trade and religious relations between the two countries, which both countries should pursue peacefully. In such a situation, it can be said that Prime Minister Modi is going to start a new chapter by meeting Chinese President Jinping in Mahabalipuram.
