China’s Yin-Yang Behaviour

Though the Indian side keeps maintaining the statement that the Chinese border has been the most peaceful among all other Indian border, something is not going well on the northern frontier.
In early September of this year, a delegation to China lead by former minister of state of external affairs, Rao Inderjit Singh, was quashed as the reports of People’s Liberation Army’s intrusion in India came in. The Chinese army violated the international border line and infiltrated deep into the Indian Territory in Ladakh.
The weekly Magazine quoted P. Stobdan saying “Chinese soldiers entered Indian Territory; they painted the rocks red and asked the shepherds and the local people to vacate the place.”
It is not the first case of intrusion. There have been many such incidents, according to Ajeet Kumar Sahu, District Magistrate of Leh (District headquarter of Ladakh). Chinese helicopters also invaded the territory last June. The government is putting curtains on this whole issue. The reason might be the unpreparedness of India for a war with China. And that will be the case for the next 15 years or more.
Both Pakistani and Chinese army have far greater autonomy than Indian Army. The Indian army is totally under government and cannot take any decision without notifying the government, whereas the power of other two armies is so great that they can even overthrow the government and establish a military rule, as in the case of Gen. Pervez Musharraf.

At one side in the field of business, China and India are doing well together and for one another. China also participated in the first BRIC (Brazil-Russia-India-China) summit in Yekaterinburg. Two major auto companies of India, Bajaj and Mahindra, have started production in China. (Another thing that China has made fake – a version of Bajaj’s Pulsar and it’s selling in cheap prizes, which has turned the Bajaj Auto’s sale down.)
On the other hand China is surrounding India from all the sides, making bases everywhere. A number of airbases on the border and missile silo is increasing every day. China talks about peace in the region with India but then provides Pakistan weapons, ammunition, training, nuclear fuel and money in billion dollars. China is also making a naval base in Pakistan, few 100KM away from India.  It is a known fact that China is pushing fake, duplicate and cheap quality products into the Indian markets. After the reports of production of duplicate drugs of Indian pharmaceuticals companies by China and exporting contaminated milk to India and to other countries, India has banned few of the Chinese products like dairy products, toys etc. On this China says it will do a tit for tat.
After the Chinese government took over Tibet (which was strongly opposed by India), the conflict between India and China raised. However, both nations were newly established, hence they explored ways to avoid wars and in 1954 the two countries signed Panchseel (5 Agreements).
  1. Mutual respect for each other’s territorial integrity and sovereignty
  2. Mutual non-aggression
  3. Mutual non-interference in each other’s internal affairs
  4. Equality and mutual benefit
  5. Peaceful co-existence
But, in 1962, China violated this agreement and launched an offensive attack on North India, without giving any warning. India lost that war and lost a part of its territory to China.
The relation with China is half good and half bad. It is like yin-yang. One side of China is good but other side is bad. India doesn’t want to spoil the bilateral trade with China worth $15 billion during the hard period of recession. But it should be cautious about its own geopolitical and economic security.
