Ten days and counting, that is how long the standoff between the Indian army and the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) has lasted in Ladakh. The Chinese troops crossed into India's side of the LAC and they continue to hold those positions living in tents there. While both New Delhi and Beijing have tried to play down the issue, no resolution to the standoff is now casting a shadow on the big visits ahead. External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid heads to Beijing on May 9 and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang headed to Delhi about 10 days later.
