India has a lot of cultivable land, but China is suffering from lack of fertile land and pollution. This might be one reason for wanting to widen their area.

Nepal is totally Chinese, its not even shown on modern maps, only the old capital is shown, Lhasa, that's it, no Nepal.

I personally do indeed see this as a possibility. Nobody is there to cool their tensions, the reality is, I see a conflict between them as very plausible. Likely, even. It would be the biggest war we've seen since WW2. With various countries backing them up.

China and India, warring together, would cause a trickle-down, and sort of an "opportunity" for various other nations, such as Russia, to strike. This would delve into World War 3.
I hope to god that world war three doesn't involve nukes. God help us all if that happens.

So the worlds two most overpopulated nations are on the verge of duking it out...

Nope this doesn't sound fishy at all...

Nepal has a pro India govt. at the helm. Am just putting this out there to remove any misconceptions. India and China at this stage will never duke it out. Yes...They have their differences, China has Pakistan by its balls and is using Pakistan against India, while India us busy arming Vietnam and having Defense deals with Japan. Direct conflict is out of the question for the next decade or so..

Plausible, surely.

Likely? That's another question. Both have much to lose in any sort of conflict involving their military's.

China can't, as has been said already, but it bears repeating, be sure that India's various partners, including the United States won't become involved in some way. ...and India doesn't want to have to fight China's partners, namely Pakistan.

It's a powder-keg, that's for sure.

Why does it sound fishy?

There is more than a little historical precedence to conflict between the two Asian giants. Other powder-kegs have equal precedence. Korea-China. Vietnam-China. God knows, Japan-China. ...and a plethora of other potential conflicts that have bloody history dating back a millennia or more.
