The South Asian region has long been held hostage to strategic uncertainty owing to the bellicose ties between its two biggest constituents, India and Pakistan. The nuclear status of these two countries poses grave dangers to the existential security of the region at large and has a direct destabilizing effect. Interestingly, the role of China has grown significantly in he nuclear security mix of the region in recent years. This aspects of nuclear security vis-a-vis the political games played by nuclear nations amidst the small states in a post colonial region that doesn’t pay heed to its cultural milieu needs to be taken into examination. The continental security challenge faced by India on accounts of the Chinese incursion and the role of deterrence should also be taken into account. The papers begins by addressing the dynamics of India and Pakistan in the nuclear mix and also analyses China’s standpoint in the region. It shifts to critically explicate the shared dynamics of the three powers in the region leading to the variable of security/insecurity. Towards the end the paper would lead to address the dimensions of hard power politics which stands in contrast to the critical school of analysis and how in the name of perceived ‘national interest’, South Asia is embroiled in a fearful hellfire that might lead unimaginable consequences.
