India has nothing to worry about China with able team of UPA II in charge. Just look at Minister of External affairs who just went to Beijing to discuss border dispute. When reporters asked about Chinese incursion , he replied he did not discuss the reasons of Chinese intrusion across line of control, into India.

What then he do in Beijing ? Discuss Chow Mein or Won ton soup ? Oh,by the way do you know the weight of 1 cubic yard of Chinese noodles ? It is Won Ton, say it , it gives answer one ton.  Any way China gave the answer. Chinese proposed that since they have $500 billion in reserve,they are ready to invest in India and India can claim a share of it.
 
With this important item coming to  forefront what else is there to talk about ? After all what are few miles of Indian territory when compared to yet another bonanza that is to fall into UPA lap that may well eclipse, Coalgate,Railgate,CWG scam,Irrigation scam  etc.
 
So foreign minister, that is, of India, who right away after breaking of news of Chinese incursion into Ladakh , explained on behalf of China, that it was due to border being not well demarcated,hence incursion . And we are also told that he is going to Beijing to deliver a ‘strong message’. Well at least he did not go and come back empty handed. China dangled carrot of billions of dollars worth. And it was obviously very eagerly grabbed to exclusion of any thing else. So he did not find out why China made forays into Ladakh. Not only that China even proposed a ‘trade route’ from Burma to Bombay. Of course this will be seriously considered in New Delhi with border dispute put on ‘back burner’. There is no point in reminding about history of colonialism which usually happened due to unholy combination of trader,soldier. With Europeans it was trader first and soldier next. Now with China it is soldier first and trader next. And China is well placed to execute its hegemony over India since it has large army of followers already in India both as political parties, Naxalites and in highly placed politicians.
 
We should give credit where it is due. After all how many governments in the world, how many foreign ministers in the world we know who can make money out of even a border dispute ? That is genius of UPA which has ministers who can squeeze gold out of Coal,money out of seats in Railway . Now even border dispute is being monetarised . Of course   other parties surely will be taking notes to use them when they come to power.
