FOR THE LAST 30 DAYS 350 INDIAN SOLDIERS HAVE BEEN STANDING IN A HUMAN CHAIN, EYEBALL TO EYEBALL WITH CHINESE TROOPS AT DHOKA LA IN BHUTAN :

For the last 30 days at least, 350-odd Indian soldiers have been standing in a human chain, eyeball to eyeball with Chinese troops at Dhoka La in Bhutan. Armed, but guns pointed down, the two lines of soldiers stand just metres apart. The lines stretch across 500-odd meters, in an area located roughly 15 km from the Nathu La pass.  The stand-off has persisted since June 6. As New Delhi tries all options, including diplomatic contact with Beijing, to resolve the situation, the situation on Ground Zero is cold and stagnant. On the rugged terrain, around 4,500 metres above the sea level, the air is thin. The soldiers of the Indian Army are replaced every two hours. The face-off continues round the clock. The stand-off is expected to find resonance in Parliament, with Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s party demanding a discussion. While the opposition has agreed to back the government on a situation that concerns national security, Banerjee has blamed the Centre for failing to resolve the situation. The Rediff.com : 18th.
