外文标题：China schools in Nepal a threat: SSB
LUCKNOW: The Shashastra Seema Bal (SSB), manning the sensitive 550-km India-Nepal Border in the two states of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, has informed the Centre about a rise in number of Chinese Learning Centres (CLCs) operating in schools in Nepal's border villages.
The SSB feels that the mushrooming CLCs — which are linked to providing employment in major projects in highways, railways and airports undertaken by China in Nepal — could be part of a larger Chinese plan to unleash a perception war against India.
SSB sources say from a handful of CLCs, the number has risen many times in the last three-four years. They say they have learnt about a trend of holding anti-India discussions on private FM channels on the UP side of Indo-Nepal Border. The sources say these CLCs are concentrated mainly in border districts like Kanchepuru, Kailalo, Bardiya, Bankey, Daang and Kapilavastu, rather than mainland Nepal.
"We have informed the Centre about probable Chinese designs and the repercussions of CLCs increasing across the border," SSB IGP Avinash Chandra tells TOI. He, however, refuses to disclose the number of CLCs operating at present.
Chandra says even border pillars along the border have got uprooted over the last few years. "The SSB has increased its border outposts to 176 and deployed more manpower. It is using new software for surveillance along the border," says Chandra.
"We have begun a counter-offensive by initiating confidence building measures," says an SSB official, not wanting to be named.

Its incredible, wherever we look, Chinese are on the attack, always looking to nibble at India, like a hungry rat. We only look for answers as a reactive measure. Its time we start to send the devil back to China. India need to be aggressive and attacking Chinese defences and nibble away at its influence in border nations like Nepal, Bhutan and Myanmar to create an environment of ' hatred ' for Chinese, which will take plenty of money, but this is where Chinese spend huge amount of money to buy their influence against us ! India need to beat China at its own game, instead of looking for remedy after getting wounded. Jai Hind !
Nepal is sandwiched between two giant nations. They need to act in a non partisan manner.
Beware of enemies within..Nepal is not a threat.
This is a major threat! Beware!
Soft power is more powerful that hard. China having failed to get Moaist government by violence has now moved over to soft power.

Ground reality is that a pure Hindu Country Nepal is benefiting from Chinese development and Hindu Nationalist of India are being Paranoid and jealous. Ground reality is that India is not liked by any of its neighbors. Further reality is that Government of Northern Hindu Indians is not liked by Southern India or Eastern India as well. Do you want more ground reality?

These are your figment of imagination...whether China has cordiall relationship with vietnam, japan and other south china sea conutries..and Gov of different states don't like others give break...
Brown American replies to Alok Kumar
Topic is about India's relationship with Neighbors, not about China. Nobody in South East Asia, or South Eastern Asia likes India. Not even 100% Hindu Nepal or 25% Hindu Sri-Lanka likes India as a neighbor. Hindu India needs some introspection.
