Topic: still backward i think...

india's army is still backward, since china's military is more up to date than india's, and soon when the EU lifts its embargo against china,there is pretty much no way india could catch up, due to india's economy and its weak and corrupted government. and at the moment its citizen have a poor literacy rate, so you will not expect them to have gd scientists to rival even the backward china: Around 30% of Indian male cannot read newspaper and 50% of female cannot read. that means around 40% of Indians cannot read. See
Less than 16% of Chinese cannot read (most of are old person and they missed the education opportunity in the old time). See

And speaking of technology, let's compare the super computer because Indians are always claiming India is the second IT country in the world.
China's homemade supercomputer listed as No. 14. But the fastest one used in India is No. 105. It was made by IBM. India's homemade one is listed as No. 258. Legend (now Lenova) built another more powerful one this year. It can be listed as No. 3 or No. 4. See

Even Indians claim India is a democratic country. But its corruption is worse than China. China government is treating the corruption issue very seriously in recent years. see
Another research report said India's corruption is much worse than China too:,00.html

Aid from outside:
China got aid from Soviet Union between late 50s to the beginning of t 60s. After that China develops on itself. India has been aided by both western countries and Soviet Union for a long time. See the link:
You cannot imagine, What should India be without this aids.
China has been helping many other countries too. That's why most of Africa countries like China so much.

China is developing its own plane related to the Su 30, and scraping the Su27. India is still using Migs mainly.

During war time, india would be in a big chaos, its government is slow to react, look at the recent earthquake now, the indian governemnt still sends no aid of its own, and its people are complaining, lack of modern planes to protect its industry of air raids. out-dated weapons compare to other majour countries (as in china, US, Russia, Japan and Europe etc...). during the war, aid will be more difficult to come into india since some organisation might pull out or enermies preventing from coming into the country.

If india is no better than china, then how can it be really that powerful? i mean on the forces, not the nukes. cos if talking nukes, there is no point since everyone loses then. earth would be destroyed.

gingerbread, your post is inflammatory, largely off-topic, and serves absolutely no useful purpose. Read the forum rules before you make another post.

The topic is not Indian literacy, civilian technology, politics, or foreign aid. It is the Indian military.

Topic: u didnt get my point here

i am comparing india with china because the chinese army is still out dated in alot of aspects, and in fact if an army is more out dated than china, then it is really out dated.
yes technology changes everyday, but is india going faster than china? and also the chinese got alot of russian technology too, more than indians.

it will be a great power one day, but really its still out dated at the moment

But India is getting more advanced weapons from Russia than the chinese did.

They are even developing advanced weapons together.

Topic: i see, like wat?

For example?? any links?? i am suret he chinese have more advanced weapons than the indians. and when the EU lifts its military embargo with china in 2005. then i dun think india would catch out, they are too poor and thair industry will hinder production of advance weapons.
