Is this topic realistic? Some people probably donâ€™t think so. China supports Indianâ€™s deadly enemy Pakistan that makes a lot of Indian angry. The 1962 warâ€™s scar is still feeling painful even today. Indiaâ€™s closer relationship with US makes China suspect a new geo-political containment is looming. The Dalai Lama with his exiled government is still based in India, from where the Tibetan spiritual leader still post big influence to the most sensitive area of China, which makes Chinese leader nervous all the time. Let alone we have border issues and other problems. Even with all these, I still think both countries have imperative reasons to see each other as friend and eventually become ally down the road. Here are 3 simple personal analysis to explain. 1. Indian and Chinese culture is not on collision road. On the contrary, we share a lot of common value such as family, integrity, respect and peace from thousands year of civilization. The philosophy of Indianâ€™s funding father Mahatma Gandhi is similar to Chinese ancient â€œDoctrine of mean or inactionâ€. The communism and western influence may have destroied or changed some of it but fundamental culture root still deeply embedded in people. Our people have desire to live peaceful and harmony with each other. More culture exchange in the future will bring us closer. 2. India and China will gain more by working together and lose more by rivary each other. Some people argue China and India both are fast growing developing countries, will only fiercely compete each other in the future. Itâ€™s true in some degree but not true overall. Both countries economic structures are different. In manufacturing, China is way ahead than India and currently in the process of changing from labor intensive to capital intensive industry. India, on the other hand, badly need more manufacturing job to employ fast growing population. In information industry especially software design, India is leading the way due to generally better English speaking work force and more access to information. Both country need each other. India need strong manufacturing base and good infrastructure to become a true economic power. China has expertise in this area and could help India upgrade infrastructure in a fast and affordable way. As for China, it's opposit, China needs work with India to train more creative engineers, designers to do more innovation job rather than copy and reverse engineering. In sourcing area, both country will find it beneficiary to joint force in bidding resources together rather than outbid each other make seller super rich. China and India are also huge market for each other, the bilateral trade last year already reached 60 billion and there is no sign of slowing. 3. India and China are not enemies. Itâ€™s still arguable who caused 1962 war but itâ€™s hard to imagine same scale of war happen again. There are too much stakes to lose, not mention both countries have nuclear deterrence. The border issues can only be solved by diplomatic negotiations. USA may want India become her ally to contain China but Indian people should have fresh memory how unreliable this superpower was when situation changed. Both countries understand they are not belonging to so called Anglo-Saxon western club so we should never naively expect equally treatment there. For China, she needs focus more on mediating Pak-Indo tension and encourage more cooperation between them rather than keep selling weapons. So both Pakistan and India can waste less money on worthless military rivalry and spend more on economic development. China should also support Indiaâ€™s pledge to become a permanent member of UNSC because in the long run India will side more with China for sure as a fellow developing country with common interest. I have more points but I just want to elaborate these 3 here. In foreseeable future I can see a bumpy road ahead but we will eventually get there.
