Prologue

Lhassa, 17th december, 1933

Thubten Gyatso, 13th Dalaï Lama, gazes at the sunset for a last time.
His ministers are gathered around him.


Dalaï Lama: Look at this sunset. I have been watching it all my life and still it amazes me. Isn’t the world full of wonders for the one whose eyes are open ?

Ministers: *silent meditation*

Dalaï Lama: This is the last hour of this body on earth. Soon my soul shall be liberated and find a new shell to pursue my task. Prime minister Reting Rimpoche, I have but one last wish before letting my karma seek its new fate.

Prime minister Reting Rimpoche: all that you wish, your holiness !

Dalaï Lama: After I leave this body, you will stay in charge until the monks find my reincarnation.

Reting Rimpoche: Of course ! But that’s not technically a last wish, since it was already going to happen.

Dalaï Lama: Be quiet. Here is my last wish. *closes his eyes, reopens them after a while and moves a finger*. Come closer.

Reting Rimpoche: your holiness?

Dalaï Lama: you will find me as a young boy. Then your will raise me according to the tradition and the teaching of Buddha... then... *pauses*

Reting Rimpoche: of course I shall do all this !

Dalaï Lama: ...then you shall turn this bunch of hamalayan bumpkins into a world leading superpower.

Reting Rimpoche: I humbly beg your holy pardon ?

Dalaï Lama: Do you promise, so that my soul can quit this world and rebirth in the cycle of Khor Ba ? Or would you prefer to know me outcast in the demonic underworld of Asura ?

Reting Rimpoche: Of course not your everlasting highness!

Security minister: (takes note, thinks aloud) Prime minister Reting Rimpoche shows signs of a worrying lack of faith in this dramatic moment.

Reting Rimpoche: I promise ! I promise anything you want ! Please go in peace and come back soon to us poor sinners !

Security minister: (still taking notes) ...and a noteworthy lack of self-control.

Dalaï Lama: Quiet, all of you. Now I can go. Follow the path of Buddha and keep your minds open. *closes his eyes*

*silence reigns for a few minutes*

Reting Rimpoche : WHAT HAVE I DONE ?

Security minister (low): I’m sure he heard your joke about him and the old yack.

Chapter One
The Birth of a Giant

potalapalacepdnh6.jpg

Lhassa, 4th January 1936
Office of the Prime Minister, Potala Palace


The prime minister Reting Rimpoche is prostrate on his desk. He looks desperate.
The Chief of Staff Gyato Wangdu stands in the middle of the room.

Gyato Wangdu: Your excellence, here is the report concerning the modernisation of our glorious army that you ordered.

Reting Rimpoche: The excitment is killing me. What did you find.

Gyato Wangdu: Well, appart from the desperate lack of every sort of basic equipment, training and proper military officers and the absence of an air force, the main concern with our army is the supply chain.

(Reting Rimpoche bangs his head on his desk several times)

Gyato Wangdu (continues his report undisturbed): We use caravans of yacks to convoy military supplies. The problem is that, given the extreme poverty of our soldiers, they tend to steal the yacks and lead them back to their families, or worse, carve them out on the hoof and turn them into chop suey.

(Reting Rimpoche is still prostrate. He does not move any more)

Gyato Wangdu: But we found out a way !

Reting Rimpoche (holding up his head): No kidding ?

Gyato Wangdu: We now cover our yacks in steel plating, making them too heavy to move and too hard to carve !

Reting Rimpoche (seems really tired and even more despaired): You know that in any other country I would have you shot at dawn for that, don’t you ?

Gyato Wangdu: But we found out another way about that too ! The yacks now being too heavy to move, we thought to put them on wheels and motorize them. The thing is that, now that they need a driver, it’s more handy to actually remove the yack from inside the armor, but besides that, it works perfectly !

Reting Rimpoche (glances at the cover of the german magazine he just received: “Panzer Mag”, January edition): now that’s a real, truely tibetan breakthrought. And how do you plan to call those wheeled-armored-motorized-yacks-without-a-yack-inside ?

Gyato Wangdu: Well the british ambassy suggested the names “lorry” or “tank” depending on how much steel plating there was on them.

Reting Rimpoche: Always trust the english to put a ridiculous name on things you invent. What else?

Gyato Wangdu: Well we simply thought of “armored caravans”.

Reting Rimpoche: Deal. Let’s call them “armored cars” for short. Launch the mass production now, and let’s put this army back on the right track!

Chapter 2
The Gathering Storm


potalaouest11petitjj4.jpg

Lhassa, 21st July 1936. Potala Palace, the council room.

Prime minister Reting Rimpoche: Gentlemen, as you all know, I promised to his Holiness the Dalai Lama to turn Tibet into a respectable power with non negligible regional influence.

Head of intelligence W.G. Kundeling : I thought the precise phrase was “a world-leading superpower” ?

Security minister Reting Rimpoche : the exact expression was “a respectable power with non negligible regional influence”, as far as I and most probably everyone remembers.

W.G. Kundeling (low) : sure. If I too had been able to appoint myself as my own security minister, I could as well pretend that his last will was to do the Locomotion dressed in yackskin...

Reting Rimpoche: what were you saying ?

W.G. Kundeling: I was saying “sure”. I just use to move my lips quite a lot to say “sure”.

Reting Rimpoche: Now tell me gentlemen, what best characterizes the power of a nation?

Chief of Staff Gyato Wangdu: The vastness of desolate landscapes ?

Minister Tsepon Shakabpa : The harshness of its climate ?

General Tempa Jamyang: The total absence of any natural ressources ?

Reting Rimpoche : Exactly ! That’s why now, to fulfill our great Dalai Lama’s will, we are going to declare war against the most powerful nation of all, after Tibet... SINKYANG !

Chorus : Sinkyang ! Oh my God ! May the wisdom of the Buddha protect us !

The Sinkiang warlords will not know what hit them. After all, I;m fairly certain they don't have armoured yaks!
