Dear MEL Topic Readers,

India-China dispute: The border row explained in 400 words

Kashmir is the northernmost region of the Indian subcontinent. The area is divided into

the Indian-administered territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, the Pakistani-administered territories of Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, and Chinese-administered territories of Aksai Chin and the Trans-Karakoram Tract.

China and India have been disputing over Kashmir region for nearly a half-century. Though the disputed region is mostly uninhabited, both sides claim that it is strategically important both economically and militarily. (politically more likely) The problem is that China and India are the largest and second largest in the size of the active military in the world.

Recently, the tension has risen somehow, and military engagement took place. When this article was posted, there were three confirmed casualties on one side. But a day later, the number rose to 20. Both sides claim the other opened fire or intruded first. You never know what actually happened.

Border argument is hardly resolvable because it requires concession. Each side of the border has its side of the history and story. Neither side knows the other side of the history or story.

Read the article and learn about the nasty argument over this beautiful land.
