The response among netizens from India comes amid an ongoing border stand-off between the Indian and Chinese armies which has persisted since April. During a violent clash between soldiers from both sides in the Galvan Valley in mid-June, 20 Indian soldiers were killed. The clashes were again reported in late August.

Global Times, China's state-run media on Wednesday posted a video of People’s Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers practicing their live fire drills with missile-gun integrated weapon systems, combined strike systems and all-dimensional assaults.

​What was perhaps aimed at evoking praise for the Chinese military through a video clip, actually started garnering sarcastic online reactions and memes from Indian netizens, who described it as a "put up show" at the clap of "lights, camera, action"..

India and China are engaged in high-level discussions at different levels to resolve matters, but skirmishes are erupting intermittently, with both sides accusing each other of being at fault.

Most recently, on 8 September, images of dozens of Chinese troops armed with spears, machetes and automatic rifles emerged on social media.

China has accused the Indian army of launching a provocation by crossing the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the border line dividing the countries.
