    There is no doubt that Bo episode has set the cat amongst the pigeons.

    And because of all sorts of issues India is going through, India seems to have missed this most momentous happening in China.

    There is indeed a serious power struggle ensuing in the CCP these days between the reformists and the status quoists.

    Today's China is not Mao's China. The economic success has to a great extent has opened up the society to question (even if with some caution) the happenings inside China.

    The social and economic disparities have caused heartburns between the haves and the havenots, more so when those who are getting rich and richer are those who are CCP party hacks or are connected to the CCP. The common and average man seems to be out of the finger in the pie loop.

    It is difficult times for China with internal dissensions within the CCP and with the economic slowdown in China, affected by the global slowdown.

    These contradictions can have greater ramifications wherein the CCP diverts the attention of the Chinese people by playing the time tested trump card of 'external threat'.

    The chaos in the SCS is one example.

    India too has to be wary about Chinese intentions along its borders.
