Chinese President Xi Jinping was sumptuously entertained by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his recent state visit to India historically beating almost all previous records of hospitality on the visit of any dignitary to the country from abroad. Customary it was but looks somewhat overstretched in terms of material gains. Statistically it is claimed that deals between Xi Jinping and Narendra Modi would result into an investment valued at $100 billion in India but the experts are of the opinion that it materially works out to be only $20 billion, ‘the rest was apparently a hype’ says one of them. Read in conjunction with the intrusions made by Chinese armed forces on the borders almost simultaneous to the talks between Xi and Modi in Gujarat and New Delhi, the whole scenario doesn’t appear to be on a pleasant note, it rather is irritatingly provocative. Such intrusions are continuing even now which, if not still stopped, are indicative of an adverse situation that could be of a worst possible order. ‘Once bitten twice shy’ is the adage India needs to follow while dealing with China to avert the past being repeated in which respect China would have to come out with a well meant tacit understanding with India with a commitment that could be relied upon.
