    The important facet of China is that it lays great emphasis in doing things the Chinese way or Yongxiabianyi where things are done in an unobtrusive manner.

    China’s rise from a Mao devastated nation to a powerful one is an example of this Yongxiabianyi, wherein China disarmed all by stating that it was only concerned was with its ‘Peaceful Rise’.

    During the period of “peaceful rise”, China emphasised on trade and under the cover of trade and lulling the world with cheap goods and making it dependant, China slowly and unobtrusively ‘collected’ strategic technologies and manufacturing processes that they quietly used to enhance their military industry as also its core industries.

    Now that the ‘Peaceful Rise’ is adequate to challenge and because the world has understood her gameplan, China is openly displaying her intent, though as is wont, she is still couching the intent in ‘peaceful’ designs and where there is a tricky knot, obfuscating it with hoary history that are mostly fables and myths.

    China is busy building rail network to connect CAR, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran.

    China is aware that unless it has adequate ‘hold’ over natural resources and food and energy security, it cannot be a world power which is her aim and as has been enunciated with veiled references and also at time openly as thus:

    China has now, as it had earlier made ingress into all continents, in quest of natural resources and improving her strategic reach influence. Machiavellian that China is, she has projected herself as a pillar of support to all failed and rogue states, starting with Pakistan, Sudan, Zimbabwe, Libya, Venezuela and so on. Each such state is in confrontation with the US and the West and hence, is an unassailable ally and each has strategic resources/ locations that China can exploit to increase her strategic presence.

    China is on the way to replace the US as the No 1 in the world and the dispenser of the fate of the world.

    Is there any way to stop this Juggernaut?

    What are the ways that India can ensure that China is kept within limits of its hegemonic aspirations?

    And what should US and Russia do so that their interests are not abandoned and China allowed to run a riot?

    An excellent analysis that should get us all thinking!

    It does indicate the way China is slowly entering into areas where the world will change.

    What do you feel is India's future in this mosaic?

    If China wants to build a strong presence in our area of interest, what should India do to counter the same as also extend India's interest where China feels it is her backyard?
