If India wants to be a dominant force in South Asia, it will not happen by achieving gold medal in reacting to harassment. It will only happen if it’s known that it’s not wise to trouble us, writes Major Manik M Jolly (Retd).
India has acted in a fashionably mature manner. Not only did we hold our ground and did not give into Chinese bluff, but there was no panic either among government or military. We agreed to meet on table as equals and do what is beneficial.
Diplomatically, there has been an effective dialogue and I think the Chinese would be soon picking up their tents and going home. Time to focus back on fight against Corona, rather than those who sent it, writes Major Manik M Jolly (Retd).
