Interesting. China‘s new passport design includes a country map that controversially includes disputed territory like Taiwan and parts of India.

India’s response is clever, in my opinion — it’s impractical for India to refuse to stamp the passports like some other countries, so instead they’ve changed the visa stamp itself to include a modified version of the controversial map.
