The two Asian giants India and China are locked in a deadly clash at the border. Over 20 Indian Army bravehearts attained martyrdom while giving a befitting response to Chinese troops at the Galwan river, which began when Indian troops moved to remove a tent pitched by Chinese soldiers on India's side of the border.
The attack came after weeks of China building up its presence along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) which resulted in a stand-off in at least four different places in Ladakh and one in Sikkim.
While India awaits clarity on the progress of handling the situation and experts are trying to decode if China is moving in by taking advantage of the crippling situation arising due to the COVID-19 pandemic, here’s a look at a comparison between the two countries in terms of geography, economy, population, health and more.
