Chagö Tomden and Phüntso Wangye had been careful to bring gifts—bricks of tea and silk—for the various officials they would need to deal with. Phüntso had heard many stories about the arrogance of Tibetan aristocrats, and eventually experienced it. Still talking about the possibility of a war with China, he told Yuthok that the way to win a war was to develop a relationship with the people. The key to Tibet's future was major reform of its political system. Ngawang Kesang arrived on business, and soon he and Phüntso decided to rename their revolutionary organization to better fit the situation in Lhasa. They called it the Tibetan People's Unified Alliance. The group decided to pursue their earlier plan to go to India and see if the Indian Communist Party could help them get to the Soviet Union. They used Ngawang Kesang's trading business as a cover when they left for India.
