This book 'Indo-Bhutan Relations in Modern Times: AStudy of Bilateral Relations' is the
first of its kind reflecting the multidimensional aspects of relations between India and
Bhutan, two south Asian countries to have been in a bond of Model Relationship, environed
by the Himalayas and its neighbourhood, so far considered the best between a big and a
small country in the world. Apart from the issues of strategic, communicational, cultural
and security-related interdependence and India's overall contribution to the economic and
infrastructural development of modern Bhutan, the book has highlighted the points of
discord and the alarming things in gestation that may tarnish the so-called model
relationship, and that is more in view of the growing bilateral understanding and frequent
dialogues between China and Bhutan. Incidents like the assassination of the Bhutanese
Prime Minister, Tibetan Refugee Crisis, annexation of Sikkim, movements and terrorists'
activities organized by the Nepalese in Southern Bhutan following the ouster of thousands
of Nepalese from Bhutan on the heels of nationalization drive by the Bhutanese Government
and the Indian terrorists of the ULFA, NDFB and the KLO hiding in Bhutanese jungles have
been analysed in detail. So far untouched materials like the discussions and resolutions
relating to India in Bhutan's National Assembly have been explored.
