    DESPITE A LULL IN THE BORDER DISPUTE BETWEEN CHINA AND INDIA, THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT IS CONTINUING ITS CAMPAIGN OF DEFENCE PREPARATIONS.

    AT PARLIAMENT HOUSE, IN NEW DELHI, POSTERS WARN THE PUBLIC OF WHAT INDIAN LEADERS BELIEVE WILL BE A LONG STRUGGLE AHEAD. SOME OF THE POSTERS URGE SACRIFICES FROM THE PEOPLE. MANY INDIAN PEOPLE HAVE DONATED ORNAMENTS AND GOLD TO HELP PAY FOR INDIA'S DEFENCE OTHERS HAVE TAKEN UP ACTIVE TRAINING.

    SOME TURBANED BUSINESSMEN OF NEW DELHI WERE QUICK TO RESPOND TO THE APPEAL FOR VOLUNTEERS. LOCAL POLICE AND ARMY OFFICERS ARE TRAINING THEM IN THE USE OF FIREARMS.

    IN THE OLD CITY OF DELHI, SHOPKEEPERS HAVE BUILT BRICK WALLS IN FRONT OF THEIR STORES AS PROTECTION AGAINST POSSIBLE CHINESE AIR ROADS. WOMEN LABOURER AS WELL AS MEN JOIN IN THE WORK.
