I came by this post the other day, it is some impression of a Chinese who worked in India about Indian society, just quote some interesting observation here: whole article can be found here ä¸å›½äººåœ¨å°åº¦ï¼šçœ‹ä¸€ä¸ªæ™®é€šä¸å›½äººæç§˜ä¸€ä¸ªçœŸå®žçš„å°åº¦--è¥¿é™†ç½‘ Walking on the streets of Kerala, you were often welcomed by the signs of hammer and Sickle, reminding you the influence of Indian Communist Party. 1. Financial regulation here is stricter and more sophisticated than that of China, Of course that is my assumption since I barely have any knowledge of how Chinese enterprises operates financially. I heard of that back in China, some business fake accounting records. I see more prudent handling of accounting procedures here, at least I am saying so from my personal experience with various Indian firms. I always thought, as far as private sector enterprises is concerned, Indian has an upper edge over us. 2. The civil servant system in India shares a lot in common with our imperial examination system in ancient China. It holds an annual exam nation-wide and admits only the top 1/1000 participating candidates. They are known to people as notoriously low in efficiency. You barely find them in office before 11 am. In india's government, real public servants ( equivalent to our mandarins in old feudal era) can be counted with fingers, but adjuncts-clerks or temporary staff or even valets and maids outnumbered the former in big scale. 3. Lower castes enjoy quotas in employment and selection, much similar to our affirmative action plans here in China in favor of ethnic groups. At present, India is witnessing riots, some people want to be classified as lower caste to take advantage of government subsidy. ...... 7. In India, many people showed hostility to Chinese, This is understandably originated from the border conflict occurred in the 1960s. The hostility gradually faded out along with the mutual understanding increases and interactions enhanced, but it far from disappear in short time. There are also many Fenqings ( Young People in Rage, or simply angry youth)in India, sometimes, they just bothered me to discuss with me every details of the incident, and comparison between every aspects of China and India. Like Chinese angry youth, they think their country is always superior, and look down upon the country they compared with theirs. Let me know you want to know more, unless some mods delete this under the pretext of off-topic posts.
