You're thinking last century. The Americans, Japanese, and Koreans have already developed technology that makes all but sub-based nukes obsolete. And
China has the one up on India for that.
Furthermore you are assuming nukes would be used. Nukes would not be used. There is no practical reason to use them. The only nation on Earth that
would be crazy enough to use nukes in a conventional war is the USSR, and they no longer exist. Russia has since been taken over by more sophisticated
people and they show no signs of doing such in a war.
Nukes are only to be used in response to another nation using them. Furthermore, that's not even a guarantee. Limited nuclear warfare would be
plausible for whatever given reason.
In the situation of a war between China and India over resources, nukes would not be used because the use of such would make it impossible to win the
war. Even if, say, India successfully repressed a Chinese land invasion, if nukes were used, their water supply would be gone and they would lose the
peace. China would just need to wait 10 years for the radiation sickness to invalidate most of their population, and they would win.
The age of the nuke is all but over. With new technology it's pretty much just a joke to imagine nukes in any war other than if someone insane was in
