Doing Time With Nehru - Company Message
Voices of Deoli

No Apology Made — a mis-translation!

It has been brought to my attention in the past few days by people who actually attended Rita Chowdhury's book launch on May 12 in Delhi, that there was NO apology made by the Home Minister. 

The article written in the May 15 issue of the Times of India got it wrong! What the Home Minister actually said was: "I feel sorry for those Chinese Indian people, who were separated from their families and were tortured, harassed, looted and who became homeless. They had already been assimilated to the Indian society when they had to face that unfortunate state of affairs." 

Either the reporter got it wrong, or a few of the Chinese Indians who were present at the launch got so excited to see the Home Minster attending a book launch where the book was about Assamese Chinese and their lives after the Border War of '62. They probably thought they heard, what they have been waiting to hear, for decades. In their minds it became an apology.
