The relation between India and China has reached its bottom low after sudden spurt in the border tension since May 2020. This surprising aggression by the Chinese side on Laddakh border tells a long story about how a nation silently focuses on economic progress without inviting any scrutiny by international community so as to assert on crucial national interests at last and at all costs. China’s neighbourhood assertion is not only confined to India but it spans in the South China Sea region too. It’s a classic example where decades of economic progresses are ultimately manifested in nations’ rising diplomatic prowess. The backing of a high economic growth rate is a must before any result oriented assertion in the international sphere. In same way, any meaningful global assertion by a country like Pakistan is out of question because it lacks the necessary economic/military foundations for this kind of global activism. In case of India the global capital is relatively very less compared with that of China. It’s all the power game through which any nation can dictate its terms on other nation. At border China has smartly changed the status quo without inviting substantial aggression from India. The main theme of the article shall be on unearthing the processes which enabled muscular assertion by China regarding international questions. The growth story of this giant nation can give some interesting insights about accumulating global capital through means of long term economic development.
