Opinion | Why Are India & China Eyeball-To-Eyeball In The Himalayas?

The standoff between India and China continued at the Dolam or Doklam plateau for the 21st day, with troops of the two armies arrayed against each other at a “civil distance”, awaiting a diplomatic resolution of the dispute, official sources told The Indian Express. Sources said that the dispute remains “localised”, with no movement of Chinese troops detected in any other disputed sector on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) between the two countries. They added that around 100 Indian soldiers are deployed in the disputed area, and have pitched tents there.

    The idea is show supremacy in the Region and to show to the World that China like to dominate whereas it was backfired and they had never expected the fall out by the stubborn at ude of India's Military Power and supported Bhutan in the hour of crisis. If any mishap happens the whole World with the exception of Pakistan will support India and Bhutan and not definitely the selfish China because they had lost their credibility in the Region due to their own ulterior and selfish motives ad none of the Countries in the Asian Continent will support China and that reality will really hurts them. Whoever wanted to show their Big Brother at ude will be vanished and we all know the countries that lost credibility which I do not want to mention and all known to us !!!

    If the chinese were allowed to build the road up to south, they can easily cut off the land road to north east india very easily. even now , they are too near to the access road to NE India. And the area claimed by chinese is also claim by bhutan, they are in no position to get fair deal from china. Hence india has to interfere to protect bhutanese and indian interests.
