There's a saying out here in Hindi - An elephant has a set of teeth to display & another set of teeth to chew.Even worse than mainland China and Taiwan,
There are many cultural exchanges and economic exchanges between China and Taiwan,
I have met some young Tibetans who don’t even speak Tibetan. They watched Chinese TV shows and video games since they were young. For Tibetans in exile, they only know the Dalai Lama.
What that means especially in a police state where trust is the first casualty is one shouldn't take anything at face value.
