India remains vulnerable vis-a-vis China: Book
India's ability to stand up to China has increased but New Delhi remains "much more vulnerable than her powerful neighbour", says a new book.
"While it may be safe to assume that China does not seek an escalation or a wider conflict (with India), the fact is that it holds more cards than India," says Arun Bhatnagar in his book "India: Shedding the Past, Embracing the Future 1906-2017" (KonarkBSE 4.97 % Publishers).
"The long-term strategy or goals that the Chinese wish to advance by taking an uncompromising position are to restrict India's influence globally and to curb its emergence as a pre-eminent power in South Asia," says Bhatnagar, a retired civil servant with close to four decades of experience who was also associated with the National Advisory Council in 2004-08.
China must understaid it might have weapons to wipe ot India 10 tomes over.I ndia too has weapond to wipe out china atleast 3 times over. the conclusion is that both nations will perish.India has never been an agressor
what was condition under congress rule.Much ,much worse on all front.Give Modi 5 years and then see peace in our back yards.Peace through strength.
India Has Sold Itself To USA.... Jai USA...
Another half-@$$ed "expert" with his half-@$$ed views.
What is Bhatnagar suggesting to improve the situation? Anybody can find the faults but the problems are complex even for the rest of the world vis-a-vis China
Utter nonsensical motivated trshed dished out before election!
This probably true. One major weakness that India has is that half the nation is very keen on bringing down the government, come what may. In this endeavour, they make friends with our enemies. They question every move by the government leading to paralysis. If India becomes weaker my the day, out is surely the left wing political parties and pseido-intellectuals
It is election season, and one more anti-Modi article. India is weak not because of 3 years of Modi govt but because of 70 years of Con-India/ Loot-India govt. How many more not so important authors will come out of bed and write against Modi, be it brown skin or white skin (specially highlighted by Media).
70 years of neglect of India''s interests by the Congress and its cronies to pursue illegal gains and shore them up in tax havens abroad is the reason for the present position. This will change
China is a country where there is no freedom of speech (very extreme) and India is a country where there is freedom of speech to even terrorist and its supporting community/religion (very liberal).
