    Punjabi psy-ops

    According to a report by ANI, Chinese troops have set up loudspeakers that belt out Punjabi numbers at their forward posts. This comes in the wake of Indian troops setting up an around-the-clock observation at dominating heights near Finger 4, overlooking the positions of the People's Liberation Army.

    Distractions galore

    According to sources, the post at which the Chinese Army has put up loudspeakers is under 24x7 constant watch by Indian soldiers and it is possible that the Chinese might be indulging in such drama to distract our troops.

    The future ahead

    With China’s anti-access/area-denial (A2/AD) strategy reaping results, the words of Sun Tzu come ringing again: “You can ensure the safety of your defence if you only hold positions that cannot be attacked.” That should be India’s deterrence strategy in hybrid warfare to contain its two arch rivals.
