    SYNOPSIS: During the past week there's been widespread elation in New Delhi at the recent defeat of Pakistani forces in Dacca, but feeling has still been running very high against india's two main critics of their action.. the People's Republic of China and the United States.

    On Saturday 5,000 demonstrators, representing Buddhist organisations, as well as the Students Congress, Smajwadi Sena, and the Congress Forum for Socialist Action, marched through city streets in protest at the critics. (PAUSE 5 SECONDS) At the Chinese Embassy the demonstrators handed in a memorandum of what they called the unabashed Chinese attitude towards Bangladesh.

    From the Chinese Embassy the Demonstrators, who included a large number of Tibetan monks, headed for the United States Embassy with a similar memorandum detailing the ways in which they believed the United States had aided and abetted needless bloodshed in East Pakistan.

    There was a warning from the demonstrators that the United States should keep its hands of Asia if it didn't want that continent to prove its imperialist Waterloo.
