nope nothing happening.

publically its "everything ok - peace and tranquillity at border" , privately both sides are preparing for next India-China war.
There has been a slight renowned focus on the central sector (Uttrakhand/Himachal), as China seems to be strengthening its weakest area on LAC.

Apart from that, both Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh are essentially locked. Troops are ready on both sides if required. Knowing China, they don't fight a war unless they have overwhelming superiority and a probability of winning, so the focus will probably now turn to other areas (e.g., Pakistan, internal unrest, the Indian Ocean, etc.).
And is our Road expansion still going at breakneck speed or slowed down for border areas?

eastern ladakh is going great . in himachal at kaurik we are building something-something , place was visited by Rawat and new chief , its an indian stronghold - i think if war happens we will do major offensive there .

arunachal pradesh seem to be going slow . couple of ITBP forward posts were sanctioned , no news on if they came up or not . a new mega road close to LAC is planned there - no news on if construction started or not.

which school is this TISS?
Unrelated but some years ago I visited the Viceregal lodge in shimla, one of the most beautiful places in the world to live and work. It is the site of the former viceroy holiday home, and is currently owned by the president's estate.
Lo and behold you find out there's some 'institute of advanced studies' operating there. One always wonders what kind of scholarship is going in these places?
Seemed like an idyllic parking spot for south delhi/ south bombay/ Chandigarh types to enjoy state funded PHD vacation.

Why? India did the right thing here.

Voting against China in the UN on Uyghur issue is useless. The resolution will anyway be vetoed.
It shows your intention. Why did any UNSC country bother to vote against Russia when they know it will be vetoed by Russia itself?

By abstaining we are sending the message of our servile attitude towards China. The same China will vote against us in the Kashmir issue, terrorism, and every possible thing they can do to irritate us.

China has very clear intentions toward us, its time we make it clear aswell.

Having intention isn't enough. You also need to have capability to hurt your enemy.

China will fund radical Islamists in India and will also use NYT, WAPO to continue the myth of Muslim genocide in India.

Tell me, what is India's capability of doing something similar with Uyghurs?

What? Where did I even say that?

China WILL continue to support all sorts of anti-India elements inside and outside India.

MEA does that because MEA knows China can cause more chaos inside India than we can cause inside China.

Mouthing off statements without capability is something only fools do.

Who needs Uyghurs?

Heard of Dalai Lama?

His very mention at meal time still makes their bile shoot right up to their mouths.

If we are not convinced (and make it known that we hate China), how are we going to take the next steps ? USA was ready to turn QUAD into a military alliance, but we did not commit and kept obsequiously talking with China while they are rallying their Army on the LAC.

Second, who said we don't have the capability to hurt them? After USA, we are the most promising candidate for hurting China, whether it be overt or covert.

They are already doing that, and they are doing it for the last few decades if you haven't noticed.

Collude with USA & Turkey to send ISIS militants via porous borders of LAC to help Uyghurs ?

I have no problem with us talking about Uyghurs or Dalai Lama as long as we are prepared to deal with China's support for Pakistan, Bangladesh, Internal elements like Indian Islamists, Commies etc

If we lack those capabilities and still mouth off, we are the ones who'll be net losers.

Are you living under a rock or did you time travel directly from 1961 ? All these things, China is already doing it.

Stay silent and build our own capabilities first.

Start confronting China openly AFTER we have our capabilities sorted.

Second, who said we don't have the capability to hurt them? After USA, we are the most promising candidate for hurting China, whether it be overt or covert.
How? Can you explain how can we actually hurt China?

1) Are we capable of taking back Aksai Chin?

2) Are we capable of liberating Tibet?

3) Are we capable of waging war on the ground near their population centres?


They are already doing that, and they are doing it for the last few decades if you haven't noticed.
I know they are doing it and they'll continue to do it.

What's the equivalent capability of ours? Can we fund Uyghurs? Can we help Taiwan?

0% chance of this happening.
