History bears witness to the unprovoked attack that it made way back in 1962 on us and made a merry of our inadequacy on the battlefront with the display of lassitude by our leaders adding to the military reverses that we suffered at the hands of China.
And of two neighbors-one the terrorist producing Pakistan, the other acting on the sly in anything relating to the causing of undermining India through insidious and nefarious activities, China-the former is a festering wound, the latter is dangerous and diabolic as of a snake in the grass ready to strike even at the slightest unguarded moments. We have been too much occupied with the former to neglect the latter whose cunningness could never be slighted.
Over the decades China has been exercising its bellicosity in its attempt to annex Arunachala Pradesh under one pretext or other and we have often acted in the manner we could only be capable of, diplomacy where civility laced with words of comfort without any intention of being offensive in tone and temper had marked our whatever paraxial that we could do and of late China has been actively engaged in or other form of activities raising doubt in the minds of those really bothered and our reaction seems to be erring on complacent as in 1962.

Harbhajan Singh is caught in another controversy for fisting at a video cameraman at the Bangalore Airport.
Bhajji seem to be in the habit of being touchy both on and off the field. It is becoming rather too much for the famed off-spinner to bowl Doosras off the field also.
Cricket is a gentlemans game and those who play the same should also be like that. But Bhajji was in recently in another controversy in which he rode a car without number plate in his native.It is rather unnecessary on the part of the touchy off-spinner to get into trouble too often.We the Indians are normally kown for our good behaviour on and off the field both at home & abroad.
It is becoming a regular misbehaviour on the part of Bhajji who seems to be suffering from a kind of psychological nervousness. Even after the incident Bhajji refused to apologise for the same. Bhajji should be warned strongly now! It is upto the BCCI to see that the best psychatrist is included in the team along with physio and doctors. People like Bhajji should be told in plain terms to behave otherwse very strict action should be taken against him immediately. BCCI should act immediatetly over this!
