Riots in the Dutch East Indies
In the city of Batavia, the capital of the Dutch east indies violence erupted once the local Landwacht clashed with the Indonesian nationalists. The leader of the Indonesians, Sukarno held a speech at the town hall of Batavia. It was reported that the Indonesians threw rocks at the Landwacht in the area. The Landwacht and the Indonesians clashed in the streets. There were reports of lootings of European and Chinese stores. The violence was ended once the police jumped in and they arrested a few dozen of Indonesians. Several Landwacht militia men were wounded. The number of Indonesian wounded is still unknown. The governor of the Dutch East Indies said on the radio that the Dutch population in Batavia has nothing to worry about and that the riot was stopped.

Chinese Threat?
The imperial government of China issued a so called "Mandate of Heaven" regarding Tibet. The Mandate states that Tibet is a province of China and how the Kalshag lead by HH The 14th Dalai Lama is illegitimate. The Chinese government criticized the feudal system in place despite China maintaining their own feudal system. The Kalshag and the Central Administration held an emergency meeting today on this threat and if it was necessary to deploy the army. HH the 14th Dalai Lama, a teen, is meeting one of his most serious tests. The Venerable 11 Panchen Lama and the 33rd Kyabje Gyalwa, both young men barely out of their teens, are involved in the meetings and how to best handle this. The Panchen Lama stated an interest to ready troops while the Dalai Lama and the Kyabje Gyalwa stated they would like to hold off and negotiate before deploying the military. Potala Palace was under increased security with soldiers posted around the Palace and near the temple.

Diplomacy Team Goes West
With the recent gradual opening of the country, the Kalshag has dispatched lamas and diplomats to go west and meet with leaders. The mission is lead by Finance Minister Tsepon W. D. Shakabpa. The teams will visit Ascobis, Washington, Cerma, UK, China and Germany. The teams are expected to leave later this week and will be flown in via airplane.

Ecumenical Movement?
A movement lead by various scholars is expected to convene. The movement calls itself Rimé and is thus far a council of lamas from the Gelug, Sakya, Kagyu, Nyingma and Yungdrung Bön schools of Buddhism. Representatives from the Taoist community will also be in attendance. The Rimé is an eclectic and universalist approach to establishing a ecumenism and unification among the Buddhists.
Despite Yungdrung Bön being the state religion, religious freedom is allowed. The Central Administration is made up of representatives from the different Buddhist schools but, the Kalshag is only made of Yungdrung Bön lamas.

Resurgent KNLA
Following the peace brought to the Karthspiri nation following the great war, the KNLA, the vicious guerilla group who for many years terrorised the people of our new nation, were considered largely neutralised; weakened greatly by their casualties in that very war and stripped of real ideological cause following Karthspiri independence. However, the tragic events in the early hours of this morning have proven such an assumption to be deeply naive. In the early hours of one of the dark, cold mornings which dominate the winters of our nation - on a high, snow-clogged Karthspiri road in Karpatrije Oblast - several loud explosions, followed by gunfire, were reported by local villagers to German troops in the area.

Dispatched by local officers, a search party was dispatched by the local German Command to investigate such reports; returning a grim and detailed account of butchered German soldiers - pinned into disadvantageous positions by felled trees and cowardly KNLA ambush tactics. Slightly further up the road a horse, the muscles of its legs torn by machine gun fire, was found in a pool of its own blood. Its rider, a guerrilla soldier of the KNLA dressed in nomadic-style combat armour, was found underneath; blood coating his sword and a rifle still warm in his hand despite the freezing Carpathian winter temperatures.

The increased activity of the KNLA has, naturally, sparked fear in many isolated Karthspiri communities with Arteron Terai, today, ordering a speech be dispatched to all communities promising to "starve the KNLA of all support, domestic or otherwise, and ensure the names of its fighters live on only in records of execution."
Education Reforms
Traditionally, the duty of Education within Karthspire, either as its own entity or as part of another nation, has been, predominantly, the domain of the Orthodox Church. The Church would provide all peasants with a basic education in maths and english for men but cooking and textiles for women; granting scholarships to those deemed intelligent enough to study further. Such a system has, massively, stifled educational development and the economic specialisation of the Karthspiri peasantry.

For a nation with barely 20% of its population inhabiting cities and with little incentive for more to re-locate their, the Church will still remain in reaching out to all people and promoting future growth which will not only fuel social development and urbanisation but economic growth and stability. Recognising this, the Terai Government has proposed an expansion of the existing education framework; a system of a basic primary education, followed by either a military, industrial or academic secondary education and, finally, University for those deemed to be talented enough. The creation of such a system on a national level is to be financed in-half by the church and in-half by the state; something agreed upon by the Head of the Orthodox Church in Karthspire. The schools themselves will be controlled by the Church but their organisation and curriculum will be subject to the state with some exceptions in-cases of religious education.
A new nation, a new army
Following the dismantling of the Karthspiri state several centuries ago, Karthspiri have never had an army of their own; forming important components in the armies of their occupiers as skilled horsemen and disciplined line-infantry. However, as a new and independent state, it has been decided that a new Karthspiri Army must be formed and, more importantly, domestically supplied. The announcement of the creation of a new Karthspiri Army by Chief Commissar Arteron Terai has been greeted with excitement up and down the nation.

To prepare for this, the state has already allocated much of this year's budget to the manufacturing of weapons and armour for the new Army; breathing life into the battered Karthspiri economy and returning the people to work. Such equipment is to be based on designs of equipment left behind by retreating Russian Forces with the possibility of imports from Germany left open to speculation.

Lama Arrives In Pontus
Lama Yonggdzin Rinpoche arrived in Pontus earlier today to meet with the king, Vatharion IX Raengyreon, prime Minister Serion Velaelor. The Lama was warmly received by the delegation at the airport and was escorted under security to the meeting place. The leaders are expected to discuss Tibetan sovereignty as well as the recent Mandate of Heaven by China regarding Tibet.

Military Deployed
The Kalsang and the Central Administration unanimously agreed to place troops on high alert especially the stations along the border with China. The borders will remain open under increased security. A diplomatic team is also being assembled to meet with Chinese delegates. HH The 14th Dalai Lama adressed the nation

"We have voted to deploy the army and militias in the bordering areas near China as a means of defense. The troops have been ordered to not shoot unless shot at. We still hope to discuss this without having to resort to violence."

Bodhi Day Celebrations
Today Tibet celebrated the enlightenment Shakyamuni Buddha and is an Auspicious Day in Yungdrung Bön. Tibetans gathered in regional temples to offer prayers to Shakyamuni Buddha and Buddha Tonpa Sherab. People were encouraged to do meritorious deeds and dedicate them to all sentient beings. One such deed was carried out by high school students in Thimphu. Students distributed free food and blankets to impoverished people. In Lhasa, the Dalai Lama, Panchen Lama and the Kyabje Gyalwa visited the temple of Chenrézik and gave a talk on peace.
