If India decides to annex Nepal tomorrow, what can the Nepalese realistically do to save Nepal?
I am Parth
The one thing Nepal cant do is, ask America for help as it Needs India to control China.
So, There is no saving for Nepal.
So it is either,
Take a strong stance, and let all the citizens to die. Thus proving, we were and will remain Nepali to our death.
Ask china for help in return for giving Nepal to China in coming future.
That will never ever ever happen. Because nepal is a babyface for india… it is all that stands between an Indian vs China war. The innocent one whom everyone wants to protect.
The day india do that is the day i either revolt against the govt along with others or leave this country. Nepal is a peaceful country always followed rules, i am sad with uttarakhand border dispute and it rightfully belongs to nepal as per last treaty. It doesn’t matter as nepalis and indians can use whatever india offers but our govt should still have discussed with them before building roads.
Maybe someday indian army has to march through nepal against china, or something else, but it should be temporary only. Under no condition i will see annexation of nepal as justified in any way. Unless the govt and people of nepal want something else, but other than that it’s a free country and i hope we can force our govt to bow down before nepalis even have to do something in case annexation from here happens.
Hmm very intresting for this to happen if Nepal signs a army treaty with china like nato with Ukraine was gonna happen then now Russia invaded Ukraine,India would also invade Nepal just like Russia as it did with 1975 sikkm .but the government of Nepal is not that big of fool to do that like Ukranian government

Its really heartwarming to see how indian brothers can't even imagine a war with Nepal. brothers government come and government goes but people to people relationships shouldn't be affected
Many Indians claim that India will not annex Nepal, but I think the Indian government has shamed them.
In November 2019, India released a new version of the map. In the map, India puts the disputed territories of India and Nepal into India's territory.
Back to the question:
If India really wants to annex Nepal, then I hope the Nepalese people will decide whether they want to be annex by India.
If the Nepalese people do not want to, there will be no country in the world today that can annex you.
The strongest weapons cannot rule a country that will always resist.
India will never attack Nepal because if India will do this then India s reputation will be reduced in whole world. In case of Nepal, Nepal will never attack India because Nepal and India are one of the best examples of best friends in World. Also why should Nepal attack India, as the result will have no outcomes.

Yes, Indians will Attack Nepal. We always like to attack Nepal and we are always in attack mode.

We will attack and finish it off. Roam around for a few days and then come back.
Have you in the history of India ever seen India annexng any land? It is NOT in Indian blood to take any land by force. India has been occupied by the British, Portuguese, French etc. Unlike China etc, India has no history whatsoever in annexng a country. And 99.99% of Indians will NOT want the Government to do this. We adore Nepalese and want them to preserve the mountains and their culture. As for politicians, they are always corrupt. I agree India needs to respect Nepal as a country more as a friend than as a BIG Brother. So far be it earthquake or any other assistance, India has stood by Nepal always. So now all of a sudden looking at China and making anti-india comments make no sense. Calling the virus as India virus is the heights of stupidness! India never called the virus as China virus. If Nepal is trusting China, then they will pay for it. It’s China not India which will annex Nepal.
My answer. India will never do that. We have no reason to invade Nepal. India is already on path to become world most populous country beating China. This is a major concern to India and we frankly no plan to invade any country and invite more people to win the unwanted race with china plus more pollution issues.
Nepalis are so nice people that even if you want to fight with them, you will end up with a good friendship
The hypothesis is good for fiction but I would be interested to answer if we ask more sensible question such as:
What if India and Nepal become a Union of Countries such as Europe
What if Nepal and India start working of space exploration together and ISRO is redamend to NISRO?
What is we moved to common currency?
What if India expand it's Kolkata Chandigarh Industrial Corridor to Kathmandu?
What if Mumbai Delhi Industrial Corridor is expanded to connect Nepal and Nepal is given a port to operate in Mumbai and Kolkata?
Everybody wants Indian fertile lands n every developed n powerful country always greedy about Indian resources. So. India needs to strengthen its power rather involve in these issue
If India decides to annex Nepal tomorrow, what can the Nepalese realistically do? Realistically, nothing much. It also depends on how it is done. Is it peaceful annexation or forceful annexation. If peaceful, then not much. If forceful then expect resistance. There will be a guerrilla warfare over mountainous terrain, and India already knows what a pain in the ass such mountain warfare can be. Check Kashmir.
However, it is not really Nepal that India should be worried about, but rather China. So, the question should really be, “If India decides to annex Nepal tomorrow, what will the Chinese do?” Every international politics is geopolitics. If somehow China and India decides among themselves that Nepal should go to India and that China will not bat an eyelid, then nothing can be done. Heck, there may even be a quid-pro-quo arrangement among the Chinese and the Indian where the Chinese will annex Taiwan while India will annex Nepal. If these two neighboring giants decide among themselves that Nepal should not exst, then it won’t.
But considering the fact that China already has a contentious border with India in Kashmir and in Arunanchal, will the Chinese really want to risk opening up more frontiers with India?
Also, there is another pesky fact about the Gorkha regiment, where a mutiny can be expected. Also, adding territories do not come for free. There will be increase in administrative burden and expense.
India and Nepal already have a high degree of cultural and economic integration. Does India need to politically integrate Nepal as well? Considering the influence that India already exerts on the internal politics of Nepal, I don’t think there is any need to do so.
As per wikileaks, this is India's long dream. Just solve Kashmir issue by military means, then I will believe it. Even super power USA is not able to defeat Taliban after years of fighting, you silly British stepsons, no way.
In case Indian invasion, believe it or not, Nepal will expand. Not sure how big, but it will extend into south and east significantly.
Nothing. Other than pakistan and china, most of India’s neighboring armies can easily be defeated by India’s state police or at most the central armed police forces.
But it is obvious that this question a meant to provoke. India and Nepal may disagree on certain issues but Indians have a very favorable view of Nepal. Forget annexng Nepal, most of us would actively support to protect Nepal if someone tries to threaten it. And since India is a de ocracy, our leaders cannot take an action which would be opposed by all sections of the society.
