US-China tensions can broadly be classified into four major areas: Trade, Technology, Territorial issues (such as Hong Kong, Xinjiang, Tibet, Taiwan, the South China Sea, and Regional Connectivity) and Tenets, which allude to values, ideology and the advocacy of particular systems of political and economic governance (T4). In addition, there is growing rivalry across the Military domain (M). To this incendiary mix can be added a new bone of contention, i.e., the origins of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and demands for accountability (C). Competition and friction in each of these fields (T4+M+C) has implications for India. This paper seeks to examine if escalating tensions in T4+M+C could provide a strategic moment for India.
