Hello my indian friends, I'm new here. I got to know this forum via my friend. I browsed some topics of this catagory, and sadly found many obviously wrong comments on China. China is really not a country you can get to know well only by the Internet. You'll find those Indians who have been to China would have totally different impressions on China in contrast with those who haven't. Of course most of we Chinese have totally wrong impressions on India such as "the country of Buddism" or "Indians are all good at Yoga". I just want to say we'll know each other well only by mutual understanding, rather than irrational guessing or gossips. OK, so much for greeting. Next here're two little questions confusing me, and I'd be glad if you'd tell me why. First, I see most of Indians honor your new leader Modi so crazily that this mania has nearly grown to the degree of NK's "Mania for KIMs" (sorry for using this to describe but I really can't find another instance). It's true that after his coming to power India has made progresses, but many of those are based on his predecessor, Singh. I see Indians are too eager for changing, but I think it's not very proper to attribute all success to Modi. You know, it was Chinese and USSR Army helped NK to beat US&SK, but afterwards all were attributed to Kim-I. This is not a good phenomenon, because the more you wish, the more disappointed you'd be. Time is the only fair judge. Second, why are you so convinced of foreign weapons? For example, Russia's been proved to be a cunning country for long and it's just tricking and tricking India, taking away your DOLLARS without giving you useful technology. A bare AC, from 800 million to nearly 3 billion $, and if other fares are taken into consideration the toll is reaching 5 billion $. Just 126 warplanes, France charged you 15 billion. India's annual budget for defense are only 36 billion, and 40% of it are spent on these planes. How to feed your soldiers well? How to feed your weapon-making industry well? Your domestic millitary industry will STARVE if this situation goes on. If you can make warplanes yourself, it'd be less than 5 billions, meanwhile contribute much to your domestic industry and economy. Keep buying without creating, this is so bad. You can say we COPYING, but copying is truly the first step of creating in case that you're not capable to produce something. We've had a hard period copying, because nearly all powers banned technology support for us, but we finally made it. Now China can produce most of weapons in need, and this means, we are able to cut the cost, have stable domestic weapon supply, seize the technology, make more working oppotunities. We have more than 100 billions budget for defense per year, and we can ensure most of this are going to Chinese accounts rather than foreign accounts. Our scientists and engineerers are paid well, and then they can make more powerful weapons. India is enjoying a good geopolitical circumstance. US,EU,RUSSIA,JAPAN, all powers are trying to pull India to their own side. India is giving out money, but meanwhile not trying to absorb advanced technology, or more directly, COPYING. If it's going on like this, I fear every year India will have to pay other powers a great amount of money.
