To go with India-China-military-diplomacy,FOCUS by Pratap Chakravarty  (FILES) In this file photograph taken on July 4, 2006, an Indian soldier communicates with colleagues on a walkie talkie at Nathula Gate, leading to the Nathu La border crossing between India and China, some 50 kms (31 miles) east of Sikkim state capital Gangtok.  A recent Chinese think-tank suggestion that India should be broken up into smaller states has touched a raw nerve in India and highlighted the prickly relations between the giant neighbours. Fears of India's vulnerability were heightened by naval chief Sureesh Mehta admitting on August 10, 2009 that India could not compete with China on defense spending and warned Beijing was "creating formidable military capabilities."
