Sri Lanka faces perhaps the greatest financial crises in the country’s history. Although such crisis is the outcome of much financial mismanagement, corruption, and lack of transparency in government, there are external factors involved as well. Due to its geo-strategic location, Sri Lanka much interests both China and India, who strongly compete for influence in the area. This article attempts to analyse the Sri Lankan crises from the perspective of a geopolitical struggle between China and India. It also focuses on providing information regarding the options for India in Sri Lanka.
