May 11: China on Tuesday dismissed fresh reports of incursions by its troops into Indian territory, saying it was committed to solving the vexed boundary issue through talks and would like to make joint efforts with India to maintain peace along the border.
China has a consistent stand on the Sino-India boundary issue, foreign ministry spokesperson Jiang Yu said, replying to a question about reports in a section of India media alleging incursions by the Chinese troops.
“China and India are committed to solving boundary issue through negotiations... But before the settlement of the boundary issue there should be joint efforts to safeguard peace and tranquillity on the boundary,” she said.
“Our activities along the boundary area have been consistent with the above principles. Our patrol along the border will never cross border to other countries,” she said.
Asked whether there was any case of incursion by either side since January this year, Ms Jiang said “I think China and India have important consensus on retaining tranquillity on the border and we have been acting accordingly over the past few years.”
“We would like to make joint efforts with India to maintain tranquillity along the border,” she said.
According to latest reports in Indian media on the Chinese intrusions, at least three incursions by motorised armed patrols of the People’s Liberation Army in the strategically-located Trig Heights and Pangong Tso lake were recorded during the last week. The two countries have set up a mechanism to discuss the dispute along their 3500-km-long border, in which the Indian side is headed by its national security adviser while China is represented by its state councillor.
India says China is illegally occupying 43,180 sq kms of Jammu & Kashmir, including 5,180 sq km illegally ceded to Beijing by Islamabad in 1963. On the other hand, China accuses India of possessing some 90,000 sq km of Chinese territory, mostly in Arunachal Pradesh.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
