India and China are two emerging superpowers of the 21st century. The two Asian giants have thousands of years old cultural and trade relations. India always supported China at various platforms but the relationship soured after the Communist China annexed Tibet and attacked India. The defeat in 1962 changed the Indian mindset about China. The bilateral relationship between two countries was restored in 1980s of and today China is the biggest trade partner of India. Nevertheless, China always flexes its muscles over various issues ranging from its claim on Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh to building military bases in the immediate neighbourhood of India. In this context, it is important to examine the relationship of these two countries.
