“Today, being the biggest developing countries in the world, China and India are both committed to developing their economy and raising their people's living standards’’ ~Li Peng The last six decades of India-China relationships have been replete with instances of suspicion, hostility as well as antagonism which used to be earlier marked with bonds of mutual mistrust, friendliness and cordial atmosphere. The challenge has always been to bridge the differences of opinion from both sides and devise a common consensus that both of these growing powers of the world can adhere and agree to. One shouldn’t presume that Beijing and New Delhi have always been on the opposite poles of the spectrum as serious attempts have always been made to facilitate discussion and promote diplomacy in its truest essence. From Panchseel Agreement of 1945 to the recent Galwan valley violence of 2020 - do these countries still believe in ‘ dialogue for peace’ as the belief that Ministry of External Affairs hold or has– Hindi- Chinni bhai bhai period already becoming into Hindi-Chinni bye bye period. While promising a stable bilateral relationship it is imperative to note how cross cutting sensitive issues of border dispute, country contours, diverging projections of geopolitical interest, security ties with other powers, close affiliations with Pakistan and the United States forces us to look at multiple vantage points in this already complicated affair - thus raising the burning questions whether as INDIA and China both take over the world stage are they willing to ‘confront’ and ‘ concile’ ?
