Sometimes I wonder, what is the need for multiple Border guarding units? BSF, ITBP, SSB and all.

Why it can't be One single force guarding the entire borders?

IPS officers leading the units of CAPF will be the first ones to run when shots will be fired at LAC.
Is it a nehruvian legacy? After independence, Bandit ji wanted to dismantle the army as only police force was needed. He thought no wars were possible after WW2, so no army was needed.

Former Indian Navy Chief Admiral Arun Prakash says New Delhi should be under no illusion about China's maritime intentions or capabilities. "It's now been 14 years since they established a standing patrol off the Horn of Africa. Initially there was a lot of scepticism of their ability to maintain a distant presence. But they have shown that they can do this. They have kept ships on station for six to nine months."

Chinese 2020/22 unfriendly Act in Ladakh - Part 1

Chinese numerical and infrastructure advantage has been neutralized at the LAC in Ladakh. In addition, their equipment is not robust enough to be reliable in cold air and rarefied heights of 14-20,000 feet. One great disadvantage Chinese suffers is that most of Tibet is a plateau of 4,000 feet and when soldiers come to reinforce from the plateau to the heights, it is a hell of a difficult job. In addition, the Chinese rotate troops between the Sinkiang region and Tibet, so all troops have to be acclimatized for heights first and then reinforce. Yes, the same disadvantage remains for the Indian troops also but because for the Indian reinforcements the mountain starts from Pathankote. The heights are gently scaled from 1,100 feet in Pathankote to 5,000 feet in Srinagar and pass through 14,000 feet Zozila Pass and to 8,500 feet Leh. Then they climb to 14,000 feet of mountains to confront the Chinese. The troops remain within the acclimation zone for two weeks. For this aspect, most of the uninformed writers give the Chinese a big advantage due to the short climbs, but miss the acclimatization aspect, which is actually a big disadvantage. The last non Chinese press reports stated that in 2020/21, that about 30% of the Chinese were sick because of the non acclimatized climb from 4,000 feet to 14,000 feet. Their equipment, which has yet to be tested, is a lot worse. The new Chinese equipment, where oil and lubricants freeze at -40 degrees, does not talk about their combat capability.

Although authors like P. Sawhney in his recent writing still thinks the Chinese might conquer Ladakh in ten days, but he has become a spokesman of the Chinese army. The insurmountable natural obstacles and the presence of equal Indian forces make this dream almost impossible...

Sawhney has little to no credibility in his claims,
