Indian soldiers playing cricket in Galwan: It’s been around 34 months since the Chinese misadventure unfolded in the Galwan valley in May 2020. Ever since that episode, the Chinese have sparked a fire that has engulfed their little soldiers. They have been vacating the chilly terrain at a remarkable pace of more than 90%. As per media reports, China has been forced to rotate 90% of its soldiers as they have struggled to survive in the bone-chilling weather.
Contrary to that, new cricket pictures from the Galwan site clearly show that the Indian army is in full command in territories near the site of the past flashpoint.
Utter mockery of Chinese soldiers
Recently, the Indian Army released pictures where soldiers were seen playing cricket in an undisclosed location in eastern Ladakh. It is worth noting that the said place is claimed to be very near the Galwan Valley, which became the flashpoint in May 2020.
The area regularly witnesses sub-zero temperatures. Normal metabolic activities are a daunting task in such a harsh atmosphere. Playing such an intense physical game showcases the resilience and poise of the Indian soldiers who have decided to hold their ground as long as China doesn’t realise that it can’t mess with India and carry out salami slicing, as the consequences of doing so will be very high. As it was during past skirmishes.
Sharing pictures of the Galwan cricket match, the Leh-based 14 Corps of the Indian Army tweeted that the Indian army made the impossible possible.
The timing of these pictures holds great significance. The pictures surfaced a day after the Indian foreign minister, Dr S Jaishankar, met his Chinese counterpart. While greeting Chinese FM Qin Gang at the sidelines of the G20 summit, Dr Jaishankar categorically mentioned that the relationship between the two countries is ‘abnormal’.
Although the Indian Army did not reveal the exact location of this ‘cricket pitch,” The India Today group geolocated the cricket site. It claimed that the site was approximately 4 kilometres from Patrol Point 14, the site of the ugly clash in Galwan.
The Galwan cricket pitch is well beyond the buffer zone created by the two sides to avoid physical confrontations. Earlier, both sides had pulled back by 1.5 km each. The Indian side moved back 700 meters. The first camp is about 700 metres back, and then camps 2 and 3 are close behind, with an Indian deployment keeping an eye on Chinese activity.
The Chinese side has been facing utter humiliation whenever the Galwan clash comes up. Earlier as well, Indian soldiers had been seen mocking frustrated and panting Chinese soldiers, sarcastically asking them, “Golgappe Khayega (Want to eat Golgappe?)
"Gol gappe khayega?" asks a soldier to a chubby Chinese trooper.
"Chal chal sahab se dur reh ke baat kar" orders an army officer.
Since the clash, it has been hiding its casualty numbers. It has been using psyops to escape the humiliation, which included the release of some footage of the violent Galwan clash, but that boomeranged badly. The Chinese adulterated version of the clash too revealed Indian army officer Capt Soiba Maningba Rangnamei of the 16 Bihar Regiment giving a bloody nose to the Chinese side.
The latest pictures of Indian army horses riding to patrol sites near Galwan flashpoint and playing cricket are a sheer mockery of the Chinese sides. The Chinese received a strong beating at the hands of the Indian army in real combat.
Now it will be interesting to see whether the Chinese change their rotation policy and play cricket matches or conduct physical exercises. Do share your thoughts about whether you would like to see Xi Jinping’s feeble XI (Xi’s XI) struggling to hold a cricket bat.
