India is today at a crossroad. There are clearly two paths: one of cautiousness, one of boldness.
Post-Covid-19, China is facing great internal difficulties, why pick fights with most nations and particularly India?
No Chinese national has ever set a foot in the area till the mid-1950s and it is only due to India’s weakness at that time that Beijing can make this outrageous claim today.
The core issue is that there is no agreed LAC today as both parties have failed to exchange maps; this leaves the space for Beijing to create problems.
In a way, Galwan was the prelude to the 1962 India-China War.
India needs to find an amicable solution with Nepal for the areas where there is no agreement as it could avoid China interfering in bilateral affairs between Delhi and Kathmandu in the future.
From Day One, a PLA unit has been on the central stage of what the Communist Party of China called the 'People's War' against the 'demon' virus.
President Xi Jinping is being questioned within the Party for his handling of the crisis.
China could have downplayed its number of confirmed cases 'by a factor of 15 to 40 times'.
For 70 years, Chinese propaganda has been mastering the Art of Disinformation. Beijing’s rewriting history of the 1959 Tibetan Uprising is a classic example.
