With China, we should simply just order a bunch of things where they lose money through subsidization and upsell it to the west by relabeling the brands at a healthy margin.

Ali Express -> Dropship -> Western Markets

China makes a loss through the subsidy and the west pays a premium for make in India brand. Use the profits to fund domestic R&D and manufacturing. Build out the demand side of the business and slowly replace the supply side with domestic supply chain.
not having FTA is a hindrance here.

drop shipping means the item will be shipped from china directly to west , wont be a make-in-india product then.

indian merchants are already buying shitty ware from china in bulk and then selling them to indians for nice margins.

you can see a lot of this crap on amazon and flipkart. generic electronics/toys with names u never heard of , all the products will look very similar , these fuckers buy them from chinese give it indian/ european brand name - item will work for 1-2 year then breaks. dont know y gov allows this , stealing peoples money as well as losing manufacturing to chinese.

MEA will be thanking chinese fore restoring peace and tranquillity, and in 10 years time
With a shrinking young chini population, the cycle can repeat only so many times. As china, I would have settled the border with India using punitive skirmishes ASAP.

Drawing out the border conflict is not in china's favor at all in the long term.

The only problem with that plan is that china has no capacity to punish india. India can hit back harder.

India needs (probably IA already has) identify Chinese choke points and start building camps/villages there. Two can and should play at a game!! That's the only way to stand up to a bully!

If China builds villages, we should build data centers there. Minimal population requirement, good natural cooling and establishing an Indian presence. Additionally, the Indian businesses will be aligned to protect the data assets

Build whatever - large cities if we have to- go one step further. Because we can stand up to bullies, we maintain large defense forces capable of teaching the bully/enemy a lesson. Unlike the Chinese, our forces are battle hardened - we do more than play video games!!

China has no choke points. Only India is squished between Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Bhutan.

the Chinese removed these weaknesses by taking over Tibet and the push into Aksai Chin. India needs to change the strategic quotient by taking over Nepal and Bhutan and absorbing them into the Indian state.

India should build hydro electric power plants, data centers and road infrastructure all along the border in high altitude. The main cost of data center is power and heat. By building data centers we will save on heat and the power can be supplied by river flow.

Indian businesses will be aligned with national interest in protecting this investment and infrastructure. If you create skin in the game scenario and tie up economic success with national security; then all the ducks will fall in line.

No disrespect to the soldiers who fought hard, but the civilian/govt jokers who forced them to fight barehanded should rot in jail.

I'd rather hope that someone renegade and in the ecosystem identifies these sarkari scum officers and despatches them to Hell. No official bullshit, just cold revenge. It might not be revealed in the open, but will send a message.

Apart from that, Indian Maoists and Communist parties of India are funded by China.

Members should read the history of Indian Communists during '62 war, and what they did during the war.

In West Bengal, CPI(M) party go by this slogan:

"Cheener Chairman Amader Chairman"

Meaning China's CCP chairman is our Chairman.

And how much evidences does Indians need to be given for, China is not behind the internal mess inside India for past 60+ years?
This is a nasal propaganda movie
Watch at 38:55
Exact words you said

If only the people on DFI could run our country...😁😉

Unfortunately, elections, exams, quota, agitation, etc. nonsense continue to keep the deserved away from the seat of power.

The one thing that would happen in a conflict, is that we would dust off the rust that has taken over the polity. It would set the government afire to force things in the parliament and use semi-authoritarian methods to revamp defence and economy like never before.

The Post-62 transformation was the result of this. Imagine that scale of transformation in today's economic context.

Then a potential conflict (even if it is around the size of the Kargil conflict) would be the perfect opportunity to brand them as enemies and ban them in India as a terrorist organization. While we will suffer losses of some of our soldiers, it will be a sacrifice that will translate to a lot of opportunities in the future.

It will also completely reshape our political thinking for the better.

Sharing a thought from a friend of mine, who is Indonesian-Chinese(by race)

It was very lucky for China that Deng was the leader instead of Mao during the Sino-Vietnamese war.
Deng realised and was man enough to admit that the PLA got whipped, was outwitted by the Vietnamese, and its time to quit.
Chinese casualty was horrific...their armour columns got caught time and time again on open roads by Vietnamese artillery. Their generals were fighting Korea all over again....mass infantry attacks were stopped by Vietnamese provisional troops and militia ...then retreated to let the Chinese pursuit ..leading them deeper into Vietnam while Hanoi is transferring their best troops from Cambodia to meet the Chinese
Make no mistake...PLA is struggling against 2nd rate Vietnamese troops, ..and their best troops are coming.
Deng was shocked but quickly realised the game is up....on the other hand, Old Mao would have sent in another 100 thousand troops into Vietnam...Mao does not fear casualties, he doesn't care if the soldiers are dying by the thousand...to him it's a sign of how patriotic Chinese soldiers are in fact he was proud of high casualties.
No one is more important to Mao than Mao....bloody a$$hole.
