NEW DELHI: India continues to slowly but steadily build military-to-military ties with China, even as it keeps its armed forces on high operational readiness along the western front with Pakistan for any contingency after the cross-border surgical strikes of September 29.
India and China, after holding their first-ever joint tactical exercises in eastern Ladakh and Sikkim along the disputed 4,057-km Line of Actual Control (LAC) earlier this year, are now getting set for their annual 'Hand-in-Hand' (HiH) combat exercise at Aundh, near Pune in Maharashtra, from November 15 to 27.
Sources said the sixth edition of the HiH exercise, which has emerged as a major confidence-building measure between the world's largest and second-largest standing armies, will see participation from over 170 troops from the recently-upgraded Tibet Military Command of People's Liberation Army.
Knowing your enemy is

Shake-hand with-enemy but be cautious and remain alert and never trust him. Surinder Bhatia, Canada.
What is the use of such sham ties with a grossly hostile nation?
Another Himalayan blunder ?
China, is fast becoming the superpower in the world. American power has become week or lets say is no more the greatest power. At this time, its important for India to be diplomatically correct with China but at the same time, scale up its defenses to a large extent.
China''s policy with all their neighbours are totally unpredictable, same only we can expect from them even now !
Very clever decision by Modi. Become familiar with your enemies but don''t trust them!
In the meantime idiots shouting at top of voice to boycott Chinese crackers!
Is it wise to expose our military tactics and our military hardware to PLA ? We must not forget their frequent incursion into our soil.
