Maybe, it's a good thing China has tight media censorship.

Esp, after the Capitol seige in US (fueled by polarized media brainwashing) and the shoddy shit show that is the Indian media.

Would like be a intern under Chinese leadership just to understand their world view and decision making.
Sources in the defence and security establishment said the Chinese soldier was a young trooper and completely “disoriented” when he was apprehended by the Indian troops Friday. They said he seems to have slid into the Indian side after tripping due to the disorientation.

I thought India has a 'professional' military superior to the 'single-child conscripted' military of the PLA? Then how could so many Indian soldiers be under severe stress? If Indian Army had this and that advantages vs the PLA and PA, shouldn't Indian soldiers be at ease, confident, and highly motivated?

Some of the major organisational causes of stress among Army officers have been identified as inadequacies in the quality of leadership, overburdened commitments, inadequate resources, frequent dislocations, lack of fairness and transparency in postings and promotions, insufficient accommodation and non-grant of leaves.

The main organisational stressors, as perceived by JCOs/ORs, were delay and denial of leaves, excessive engagement, humiliation by seniors, lack of dignity, zero error syndrome, unreasonable restrictions on the use of mobile phones, poor quality of ration and cooked food, besides lack of recreational facilities and conflict with seniors as well as subordinates.

Man, sounds like the many problems of the Indian Army that we have been talking about over and over again. Life for the Jawans is quite literally tough on the body, mind, and spirit.

But wait, if according to Indian media. Isn't this supposed make men out of boys? Isn't this is one of the 'advantages' of the Jawans over their 'pampered single-child' PLA counterparts? So everything is going to plan then?

humiliation by seniors
I can't help but notice this as a trait across all indians- the desire to throw their weight around and bully or be a karen to servers, waitstaff or generally anyone the service industry, be it here in the West or elsewhere.
It would make sense that such an attitude would create low morale and even a desire to frag officers when the fighting begins.

I heard a former member of the Chinese border guard force mentioned that he almost fell into Indian-controlled territory once when the troops were stationed at Bangong Lake.

According to a retired Indian army major, PLA troops are dying on average 2-3 soldiers a day in Ladkh while Indian soldiers are the best MOUNTAINEERS in the world. China is buying European arctic gears for its troops.

European arctic gear is still better than used U.S. gear.

Thank man... just skimmed over the article one of the best laughs ever...

This guy is talking about insulated fibreglass shelters with centralised heating for most of the Indian positions when not too long ago the DRDO was doing research on indoor kerosene heaters improvements to increase heating and avoid carbon monoxide buildup

Now we know where this retired major is getting his paycheque from, and maybe the reason why he couldn’t get a promotion to general. Perhaps he should consider a career as a comedian... I bet he will go far
