    That was meant to be sarcasm - but that might be banned in China too - right?

    In India people can demonstrate against the government - even burn effigies of the ruling elite. The most they will get is a ticket for traffic violation (if they block the streets). what about in China? Or was Tiananmen square too "1980s"?
    As for workers conditions - I am not imagining this am I?

    Even if one has a healthy brain, in this forum it has to be in English and not transliteration of Chinese or meanderings of a disconnect mind!

    Sorry, I do not realise sarcasm is exclusively owned by you.

    Demonstrations are allowed in India? Gasp, Next you gonna say they got elections in the US?

    /Sarcasm ends.

    The thread is about providing new information. You have the knack of stating the obvious.

    China and Chinese are different. All of you outsiders will ever and never understand Chinese and our culture. The world only have two different culture system. One of them is pan-Mediterranean-Middle east which include Indus civilization since Indus have connection with Mesopotamia all the way. The another is China. China/Chinese is alien for you. She is different with you from architecture to literals. How elephants can understand dragons.

    Indeed, I don't think you will get killed for telling the truth about India. Indian PM is an a$$hole, why should the honest people get killed for calling a spade a spade?

    But then Mao killed a whole lot of human orifices in China since he knew that they were nothing more than that!

    Mad Indian dared you. to call Wen and Hu human corroded orifice and you squirmed in fear!

    As a running dog you dare not open your mouth against the CCP or its leaders!

    That is the point!

    There were glaring asymmetries in the way India and China looked at each other, Perhaps as a result of Western scholarship, English educated Indians had developed an “orientalist” view of China. To Western scholars, the “Orient” or Asia was a cultural continuum, particularly because of the Buddhist connection. In the English educated Indian mind, however, it became “Indianisation” of China. This perspective gave a distorted picture of India’s place in China’s world-view.

    In reality, Buddhism started on the periphery of the Chinese society and by the time it acquired a large number of adherents, it had become so transformed that it ceased to be Indian. Politically, Buddhism was strongly opposed by the Confucian mandarins who thought it subverted Chinese values. The much talked about “missions” were from and to the peripheries of both societies and by the early fifteenth century they had stopped altogether. But westernised consciousness in India took such contacts to be between nations.[11] Hence the myth of India and China being Asian sister-countries[12] a myth given currency not only by Nehru but many others.[13]

    The Chinese communists also adopted the myth during the “bhai-bhai” days.[14] But their ancestors rarely ever showed any interest in India whatsoever except to acknowledge the remote origins of Buddhism in the “Western Heaven”.[15] Until the early fifties, Chinese scholars had not produced a single work on India as a country.[16] “India” entered Chinese consciousness as the land from which soldiers of the British Indian Army came to loot and kill; it was from where opium came.[17] All state-to-state contacts were with British India where Indians were not the decision-makers.

    They saw Indians in China as “zou gou” (running dogs) of the British. Through translated works, they came to know that Buddhism had disappeared from India, that India had first gone under Islamic rule and then western “barbarian” rule.[18] Public affairs, which were central to Chinese thinking, were mismanaged by Indians. Chinese thinkers when debating the Western challenge to China cited India as a negative example. They would deal with the West in their own way, decidedly not as India had done.[19]

    Excellent article IMO

    All these explained why I changed my mind completely, I don't want to understand and communicate with them any more, they are a bunch of well brainwashed people, they are so rasist so narrow minded, I believe this country has a lot longer way to go to adapt to globalization.

    To be fair to Indians, we, Indians, don't care a tinker's damn as to what you think of India.

    You are just another nation in the world but you are a bit different - you are like Uncle Scrooge and Ebenezer Scrooge rolled in one with their lust for money and the constant and insatiable quest to grab land that is current and through your history.
