China's and India's  string of pearls(Red crosses – China’s bases: Black boxes – India’s bases)

There’s an interesting article in the Asia Times Online discussing India’s establishment of a port in the Maldives. This come in large part as a reaction to China’s string of pearls i.e. their naval bases around the Indian Ocean that have the Indians somewhat perturbed. The map is a crude representation of where their respective naval bases are in the region (based on open-source information). In addition, India have the use of a base in Madagascar whilst China have the use of a base in Kenya and Tanzania.
