    Beijing: Days after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh held talks with his Chinese counterpart Wen Jiabao, the state-run media here today said India was "jealous" of China's growing influence in Asia and charged it with instigating "small" neighbours for a "gang fight" against this country.

    "India jitters at the sight of China gaining prestige in Asia, in particular, in South Asia and Southeast Asia, and takes China's ever-growing regional influence in recent years as a strategic encirclement to target and contain India," Xinhua news agency said in a commentary on its website.

    Written in response to an article, "Asia's Giants Colliding at Sea?" by former Defence Minister Jaswant Singh, it said India is living under a "delusion" that China was out to encircle it.

    The Xinhua commentary came nearly a week after Singh and Wen met in Bali on the sidelines of the ASEAN Summit and agreed that there was enough space and areas for the two Asian giants to work together. Their meeting on November 18 took place against the backdrop of the South China Sea row.


    Apparently referring to India's 'Look East' policy consolidating its ties with Southeast Asian countries like Vietnam and Japan, the commentary said New Delhi is resorting to "instigate" China's neighbours to contain its influence. China had sought "a win-win model when it developed economic and trade relations with its neighbours, including India," it said. "Why India appears so impatient to take more agreeable strategies in its periphery is still beyond understanding..." it added

    By currying favour with China's neighbours, in particular, those who have brewed disputes with China, India would assume, it could instigate smaller nations to engage in a fight against China and contain China's growing clout in the region," the commentary said.

    "It sounds nothing more than loud jealousy, for the simple reason that China has done what India could not, especially when India perceives that China's influence has reached its doorstep and created a tremendous impact on those who should have banked on India as imagined," it said.

    This also explains why India has been living under the "delusion that China lays out a strategic chessboard to lock up and contain India, and thereby every act and every move of China could touch a raw nerve of India," it said.

    "Jealousy can sometimes be put in the same breath of inferiority. India could trace its sense of being so self-abased to the brief border war with China in 1960s, when it was beaten by the Chinese army. And India has since eyed China with deep-seated distrust", the commentary alleged.

    "The Indian media are always given to wild speculation on what on earth China intends to do. Any move the Dragon takes in the region would in all likelihood vex the Elephant," it said.

    In a nutshell, "to grow up to be a real power and stand as a sound competitor, India needs to, first and foremost, break through its own psychological fence," it said.

    CCP (and their propagandists, read: Xinhua) have gone in panic mode; this shyt is getting funnier day by day!!

    They say India is jealous of China's growth?

    Have they lost it? India is growing at a rate which will exceed China in recent future. China with its stagnant economy, flight of capital and manufacturing, highest inflation, over dependence on US dollars et al will make it go tumbling down!

    I would have understood this statement if CCP would have vomited this regarding Somalia, pakistan, Sudan, Uganda etc. (even mentioning such nations would have been considered inappropriate; and to poke fun at their destitute by an Authoritarian Regime even worse); however their mention of India which is the 2nd fastest growing economy and soon to be 'the fastest' - clearly displays their fear mongering and insecurity, now China will also go pakistan way! What a Shame!

    It's great to see how the tables are turning and how Tiger/Elephant is taming the dragon!! :namaste:

    In my online experience, whenever a chini is preached about the virtues of freedom, the chini points at the relative superior economy of china compared to India to point out that development and democracy are incompatible.

    This shows that in chinese mind, india==democracy. India fails, democracy fails. India beats china's growth, then its time for democracy in china.

    The Chinese media should invest more time in productive news instead of ''self glorification'', china is rising but they shouldn't assume that their position is similar to that of USA and Soviet Union after the 2 WW, they should rather focus on how other Asian nations are preparing to counter china which in my view is the real news. China rise and the intimidation and bulling tactics which it apply's has guaranteed that the so called ''rising peacefully'' slogan is a deceptive ploy used to hide china's real ambitions. One thing is for sure in this century no nation irrespective of size and scale will not tolerate the methods China uses to engage with the world. :dharma:

    It is the Chinese fear that India will upset the apple cart of its relentless and insatiable imperialist and hegemonic designs in the Asia Pacific Rim that prompts the Chinese media to quake and wail in a desperate attempt to deflects its insecurity and fear.

    A country that is confident would merely ignore events or issues that are niggling.

    US is one such example which does not care how the world moves and instead calmly and relentlessly pursue her national aims without getting irked, embarrassed or provoked!

    That is what separates the men from the boys and the wheat from the chaff!
