Coping with the Rise of China
Imperatives for South Asia
China’s rise in power, both in regional and global perspectives, has evoked a call for a rethink of the world order in making. True or false, there is deja vu that the country could lead Asia’s much awaited renaissance from the front. True or false again, there is fear of the unknown that the country could upset the cart and turn into a disaster. This is while the world of today is far more connected and adventures of any kind could spell disaster equally for the victor and the victim. Nevertheless, null hypothesis in either case is least likely to test positive. The correlation could, at best, stand ground only as a ‘chance occurrence’.
