Any Questions? 3. National Pride 4. National Interests Sino-Indian Relations Ancient Relations Prior to the 1950s, China and India had little political contact. Silk Road Buddhism and Literature The Silk Road started about 3,000 years ago, serving as an economic connection between the great civilisations, including China and India It served as one of the few connections between China and India, in this case it enabled trade between the two countries, connecting the two countries' economies. Serving as the cultural contact between India and China, Buddhism spread from India to China in the 1st Century. In addition, both Indian and Chinese literature included references to each other. Connections became more frequent as monks traversed between the two countries because of the cultural linkage. One example is the famous novel Journey to the West, as inspired by the recount of one monk's travels to India. December 1988 - present:
When Rajiv Gandhi, 6th Prime Minister of India, visited China in December 1988, talks for a peaceful resolution to their border disputes began. This eventually led to the defining of the borders and what belongs to who, withdrawal of troops and thus improved relations between the two countries. Bibliography Sino-Indian Relations. (n.d.).
