- For common observers like you and me, the unfolding events that arose aftermath of Galwan Valley incident in the Eastern Ladakh along the line of actual control (LAC) continues to baffle the way the Union Government has approached the whole issue. When our brave soldiers were martyred fighting the Chinese aggressors, the entire nation was unanimous in expressing grief over the martyrdom but also stood solidly behind the Government’s move to restrict FDI without approval and banning dubious apps though extremely popular amongst the masses.
- Any challenge to our sovereignty and security, even if it is perceived, will not be tolerated by the countrymen as shown in the instant case by backing the Union Government unconditionally to retort decidedly against evil designs being nurtured by the Chinese. With military troops and armaments of various denominations lined up to the brim on both sides of the LAC, the situation on the higher reaches of Ladakh continues to remain on razor-edge. Several rounds of Ministerial, Diplomatic, and Military level talks have returned nothing concrete so far.

- Indian think tank at the highest levels has made some strategic moves like strengthening the Indo-Pacific Quad alliance involving India, Japan, Australia, and the USA. The latest move to extend an invitation to Australia to participate in the Malabar Naval exercise is a welcome measure aimed at strengthening the axis to counter the belligerence of the Chinese. Few more geostrategic policies underlining makeovers should be carefully calibrated to not only counter the unbridled aggressive shenanigans but also to convey a message to the Chinese about our intent.

- Most annoyingly,the Chinese leadership remains insensitive to our concerns though expecting to exhibit greater sensitivity to a host of issues unpalatable to them simply does not fit into the realm of reciprocity any longer. Take for instance the reports emanating about Indian leadership considering to start discussions for a trade deal with Taiwan has expectedly elicited an unsolicited response from the Chinese foreign ministry asking New Delhi to be prudent while dealing with Taipei by reiterating it’s so-called “One China” principle which sees Taiwan as part of China.
- Got to give it to the gall of Beijing on the unwelcome advice and deep-rooted hypocrisy where it shows utmost disregard for the sovereign interests of other countries persisting with expansionist strategies much against the wishes of the international community. Make no mistake, China has no business telling New Delhi with who it can undertake trade deals. Unlike China, Taiwan is a free and independent democracy, and an Asian economic dynamo to boot owing to its technological supremacy in hardware manufacturing capabilities that could superbly marry with our software proficiencies. An unquestioningly win-win situation for both our countries.

- Owing to the trade war between China-USA, the COVID-19 situation, and growing tension between Beijing and Taipei, many Taiwanese companies are looking to relocate out of China and India should extend a red-carpet welcome to invite investments ignoring the Chinese riling. No need to pander to the whims and fancies of Beijing interrupting in our sovereign endeavours. The message must be delivered loud and clear without mincing words.
