Despite the fragmentation of the South Asia region, cultural and moral equality is seen here. India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Maldives are South Asian countries. South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) is a political and economic regional organization of South Asian countries, through which peace and security of the region is ensured. It cannot be denied that China has always been interested in the Central Asian region. Both India and China have special importance in contemporary world politics. Geographically, the two countries share a long border. India occupies an important position to counter China's expansionist policies in South Asia. China wants to establish its dominance in this region, while India opposes the interference of any external power in South Asia. China is also trying to dominate the intra-regional trade in South Asia. China is trying to encircle India by strengthening strategic and economic ties with India's neighbours. This article marks the growing rivalry between India and China in the South Asian region. Along with this, the description of the stand of all the countries of South Asia on this rivalry is also seen in this article. However, China's entry into South Asia and its influence depends on India's diplomatic desire for political and regional integration.
