The Vala Kathis entered the province several centuries back, one of their earliest seats was at Devlia Mota whence they conquered Chital. From Chital they acquired Jetpur and subsequently Bilkha. There are two different accounts given of the acquisition of Jetpur, viz. that of the Tarikh-i-Sorath, which says that the first Nawab of Junagadh, Bahddur Khan I, granted Jetpur to Vala Vim. In consideration of Vira's aid the Valas of Bagasra gave him Jetpur; these Bagasra Valas acquired their share in Jetpur from the Khadia Baloch who received it from the local Muslim governors of former times. Jetpur is said to have been a holding of the former Valas, to have been conquered from Vala Champraj by Shamskhan at the same time as the Vala town of Kileshvar in the Bardas was sacked.

The ghazal is a form of amatory poem or ode, originating in Arabic poetry. A ghazal may be understood as a poetic expression of both the pain of loss or separation and the beauty of love in spite of that pain; the ghazal form is ancient. The ghazal spread into South Asia in the 12th century due to the influence of Sufi mystics and the courts of the new Islamic Sultanate. Although the ghazal is most prominently a form of poetry of many languages of the Indian sub-continent and Turkey. A ghazal consists of between five and fifteen couplets, which are independent, but are linked – abstractly, in their theme; the structural requirements of the ghazal are similar in stringency to those of the Petrarchan sonnet. In style and content, due to its allusive nature, the ghazal has proved capable of an extraordinary variety of expression around its central themes of love and separation; the word ghazal originates from the Arabic word غزل. The root syllables Gh-Z-L have three possible meanings in Arabic: غَزَل or غَزِلَ - To sweet-talk, to flirt, to display amorous gestures.
غزال - A young, graceful doe. غَزَلَ - to spin. The poetic form derives its name from the first and the second etymological roots, One particular translation posits a meaning of ghazal as'the wail of a wounded deer', which provides much context to the theme of unrequited love common to many ghazals; the Arabic word غزل ġazal is pronounced like the English word guzzle, but with the ġ pronounced without a complete closure between the tongue and the soft palate. In English, the word is pronounced or; the ghazal is a short poem consisting of rhyming couplets, called Bayt. Most ghazals have between twelve shers. For a poem to be considered a true ghazal, it must have no fewer than five couplets. All ghazals confine themselves to less than fifteen couplets. Ghazal couplets are expected to have the same meter; the ghazal's uniqueness arises from its rhyme and refrain rules, referred to as the'qaafiyaa' and'radif' respectively. A ghazal's rhyming pattern may be described as BA, CA, DA... and so on. In its strictest form, a ghazal must follow five rules: Matlaa: The first sher in a ghazal is called the'matlaa'.
Both lines of the matla must contain the radif. The matlaa sets the tone of the ghazal, as well as its rhyming and refrain pattern.. Radif/Radeef: The refrain word or phrase. Both lines of the matlaa and the second lines of all subsequent shers must end in the same refrain word called the radif. Qaafiyaa: The rhyming pattern; the radif is preceded by words or phrases with the same end rhyme pattern, called the qaafiyaa. Maqtaa/Maktaa: The last couplet of the ghazal is called the maqtaa, it is common in ghazals for the poet's nom de plume, known as takhallus to be featured in the maqtaa. The maqtaa is more personal than the other couplets in a ghazal; the creativity with which a poet incorporates homonymous meanings of their takhallus to offer a additional layers of meaning to the couplet is an indicator of their skill. Bah'r/Beher: Each line of a ghazal must follow the same metrical pattern and syllabic count. Unlike in a nazm, a ghazal's couplets do not need a common continuity; each sher is self-contained and independent from the others, containing the complete expression of an idea.
However, the shers all contain a thematic or tonal connection to each other, which may be allusive. A near-universal convention that traces its history to the origins of the ghazal form is that the poem is addressed to a female beloved by a male narrator; the ghazal originated in Arabia in the 7th century, evolving from the qasida, a much older pre-Islamic Arabic poetic form. Qaṣīdas were much longer poems, with up to 100 couplets. Thematically, qaṣīdas did not include love, were panegyrics for a tribe or ruler, lampoons, or moral maxims. However, the qaṣīda's opening prelude, called the nasīb, was nostalgic and/or romantic in theme, ornamented and stylized in form. In time, the nasīb began to be written as standalone, shorter poems; the ghazal came into its own as a poetic genre during the Umayyad Era and continued to flower and develop in the early Abbasid Era. The Arabic ghazal inherited the formal verse structure of the qaṣīda a strict adherence to meter and the use of the Qaafiyaa, a common end rhyme on each couplet.
The nature of the ghazals changed to meet the demands of musical presentation, becoming briefer in length. Lighter poetic meters, such as khafîf, muqtarab were preferred, instead of longer, more ponderous meters favored for qaṣīdas. Topically, the ghazal focus changed from nostalgic reminisces of the homeland and loved-ones, towards romantic or erotic themes – These included sub-genres with themes of courtly love, homoeroticism, as a stylized introduction to a larger poem. With the spread of Islam, the Arabian ghazal spread both westwards, into Africa and Spain, as well as eastwards, into Persia; the popularity of ghazals in a particular region was preceded by a spread of the Arabic language in that country. In medieval Spain, ghazals written in Hebrew as well as Arabic have been found as far back the 1

The Sino-Indian War known as the Indo-China War and Sino-Indian Border Conflict, was a war between China and India that occurred in 1962. A disputed Himalayan border was the main pretext for war. There had been a series of violent border incidents after the 1959 Tibetan uprising, when India had granted asylum to the Dalai Lama. India initiated a Forward Policy in which it placed outposts along the border, including several north of the McMahon Line, the eastern portion of the Line of Actual Control proclaimed by Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai in 1959. Unable to reach political accommodation on disputed territory along the 3,225 kilometre long Himalayan border, the Chinese launched simultaneous offensives in Ladakh and across the McMahon Line on 20 October 1962. Chinese troops advanced over Indian forces in both theatres, capturing Rezang La in Chushul in the western theatre, as well as Tawang in the eastern theatre; the war ended when China declared a ceasefire on 20 November 1962, announced its withdrawal to its claimed'line of actual control'.
Much of the battle took place in harsh mountain conditions, entailing large-scale combat at altitudes of over 4,000 metres. The Sino-Indian War was noted for the non-deployment of the navy or air force by either the Chinese or Indian side; the buildup and offensive from China occurred concurrently with the 13-day Cuban Missile Crisis that saw both the United States and the Soviet Union confronting each other, India did not receive assistance from either of these world powers until the Cuban Missile Crisis was resolved. China and India shared a long border, sectioned into three stretches by Nepal and Bhutan, which follows the Himalayas between Burma and what was West Pakistan. A number of disputed regions lie along this border. At its western end is the Aksai Chin region, an area the size of Switzerland, that sits between the Chinese autonomous region of Xinjiang and Tibet; the eastern border, between Burma and Bhutan, comprises the present Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh. Both of these regions were overrun by China in the 1962 conflict.
Most combat took place at high altitudes. The Aksai Chin region is a desert of salt flats around 5,000 metres above sea level, Arunachal Pradesh is mountainous with a number of peaks exceeding 7,000 metres; the Chinese Army had possession of one of the highest ridges in the regions. The high altitude and freezing conditions caused logistical and welfare difficulties; the Sino-Indian War was no different, with many troops on both sides dying in the freezing cold. The cause of the war was a dispute over the sovereignty of the separated Aksai Chin and Arunachal Pradesh border regions. Aksai Chin, claimed by India to belong to Kashmir and by China to be part of Xinjiang, contains an important road link that connects the Chinese regions of Tibet and Xinjiang. China's construction of this road was one of the triggers of the conflict; the western portion of the Sino-Indian boundary originated in 1834, with the conquest of Ladakh by the armies of Raja Gulab Singh under the suzerainty of the Sikh Empire.
Following an unsuccessful campaign into Tibet, Gulab Singh and the Tibetans signed a treaty in 1842 agreeing to stick to the "old, established frontiers", which were left unspecified. The British defeat of the Sikhs in 1846 resulted in the transfer of the Jammu and Kashmir region including Ladakh to the British, who installed Gulab Singh as the Maharaja under their suzerainty. British commissioners contacted Chinese officials to negotiate the border, who did not show any interest; the British boundary commissioners fixed the southern end of the boundary at Pangong Lake, but regarded the area north of it till the Karakoram Pass as terra incognita. The Maharaja of Kashmir and his officials were keenly aware of the trade routes from Ladakh. Starting from Leh, there were two main routes into Central Asia: one passed through the Karakoram Pass to Shahidulla at the foot of the Kunlun Mountains and went on to Yarkand through the Kilian and Sanju passes; the Maharaja regarded Shahidulla as his northern outpost, in effect treating the Kunlun mountains as the boundary of his domains.
His British suzerains were sceptical of such an extended boundary because Shahidulla was 79 miles away from the Karakoram pass and the intervening area was uninhabited. The Maharaja was allowed to treat Shahidulla as his outpost for more than 20 years. Chinese Turkestan regarded the "northern branch" of the Kunlun range with the Kilian and Sanju passes as its southern boundary, thus the Maharaja's claim was uncontested. After the 1862 Dungan Revolt, which saw the expulsion of the Chinese from Turkestan, the Maharaja of Kashmir constructed a small fort at Shahidulla in 1864; the fort was most supplied from Khotan, whose ruler was now independent and on friendly terms with Kashmir. When the Khotanese ruler was deposed by the Kashgaria strongman Yakub Beg, the Maharaja was forced to abandon his post in 1867, it was occupied by Yakub Beg's forces until the end of the Dungan Revolt. In the intervening period, W. H. Johnson of Survey of India was commissioned to survey the Aksai Chin region. While in the course of his work, he was "invited" by the Khotanese ruler to visit his capital.
