The disputes and rage on the Indo-China border are not coming to a halt. On 15th June at mid-night, troops of India and China involved in a face-off which started with hand combat, and then stone-pelting and use of trench wires were also started. The face-off happened near the Indian Territory of Galwan valley. It is the most fatal clash since 1967. On 15th June, 20 Indian soldiers were martyred and 43 PLA soldiers also died in the combat.

The clash started in the evening when the Indian troops came across the Chinese PLA while patrolling. One of the Chinese soldiers pushed an Indian soldier and he fell in the river gouge after which both the sides became furious and called for more support from their respective camps. According to the officials, 3 soldiers martyred on the spot and another 17 of them succumbed later to the injuries.

Beginning of the Story

This matter started in late April when troops of both sides involved in the fierce face-off leading to stone-pelting and injuries to both sides. After which, China had tried several times to trespass in the Indian border, they even came in almost by 5kms in the Indian Territory. But every time it had to bite the air as the Indian soldiers stand strongly retaliating to the PLA and safeguarding the country. To resolve the matter lieutenant general level meetings were also held and then both the sides evacuated the disputed area.


But now, China has crossed all the limits in the mid-night of 15th June by starting breaking out in the Indian Territory. The shamelessness of the Chinese Army can be seen in the way that after doing all this, it is blaming India to provoke the Chinese army.

As an aftermath of this, China has claimed the Galwan valley and says that it is illegally acquired by India, which is sheer nonsense and lie. We know that the LAC area is not very well defined which often leads to disputes between both the country and every time it is resolved by diplomacy. But the intimidating attitude of China by claiming Galwan valley in its territory neither be entertained and nor be accepted.

 Anger in the India and Hypocrisy of China

After the news of 20 Indian soldiers being martyred in this incident, rage and anger are prevailing in the whole country to take revenge from China. Many places in India can be seen burning posters of the Chinese flag and holding banners with the tag #boycottChineseproducts. Meanwhile, in Chinese journalism, there is only hypocrisy. They are just trying to mislead the public and spread hate towards India. As stated in the Global Times, “China does not want to clash with India and hopes to peacefully deal with bilateral border disputes. We do not want war”. If this is not hypocrisy then, what is it? On one hand, the editor of this newspaper (the Global Times) is saying these flattering lines and on the other hand, China is showing its cowardice nature by attacking at night and claiming the area.

India should give a loud and clear message to China that, India is not going to tolerate any of the nuisances of China as it is capable to retaliate and smash China on the ground in no time. Moreover, China should remember that a large part of the Chinese economy depends on the trade with India and by taking these irrelevant and trivial steps it is forcing Indians to boycott China which will bring no harm to India but China’s economy will surely devastate. Nevertheless, India wants peace over the border but if the situation got worsens, both the countries will face the aftermath but India will emerge as a superpower.
