I wouldn't compare China with Germany, but there are shocking similarities between the two.

Everything takes time and I think China is a healty country if you compare to my country, even if China maby is not entirly a socialist country but believe me when China get even close to what sweden is today with suicidal cut downs in the military and people from other nations threaten your gov so they dont dare to do anything against terrorists, who in general is being treated like royality, than the people of China would protest. There is no glory in living in a country that cant protect themselfe or do anything radical to make it safer for the people. There is no honor in countrys that hides behind others and let them take all the responsibility. I still believe in China as a country on its way to a healthy socialism country where state governed by law and order togheter with socialism for the people can go hand in hand in the future without this madness our leaders have draged this country into, it´s more like a Turkish brothel runned by large ass dragqueens nowadays. In 40 years we are taking a drink somewhere on the great Chinese wall FlyingFrog, looking at the moon with our childrens children running around and we will laugh. If theres gonna be any form of socialism let it be Chinas model then. People that dont like it can move somewhere else hef,hef,hef

um.. that leads into another probelm..

India has very litle hydroelectric power capability because of its large population living near the ganges river and that building dams on the hilmlalys is very hard

their main sourse of power is probaly the coal-powered plants, they probaly have nuclear(i dont know, need source) which is unstalbe

their electric shortages happens often..

Cantonese is only one of so many dialects of Chinese. Its written form is exactly the same as the mandarin.

I had stayed in the US for more than a decade, it sometimes sadens me to find again and again how miserably ignorant the Americans are about China. That includes some of my respected professors. My friends, you really know way too little about anything Chinesel! (even though you may have been to your Chinatowns many times).

While we are here, let me share with you just a bit more in case you don't already know: The so-called Chinese as one of the UN's working languages is actually Han (nationality) language amony a few miority languages in use in China. The whole China, including Taiwan, speaks and writes an official language: Putonghua (common language, as called on the mainland) and Guoyu (National language, as called in Taiwan). This one major official language is spoken in many many dialects, but all written in the same characters except for the two forms: Traditional and Simplified.

Some people blame the communists for simplifying the traditional written Chinese. But they did it for good reasons, which is beyond the scope of this comment. Yet the ironic thing is that even the idea of simplifying the Chinese characters (for the poor mass and probably the world) is no invention by the "evil communists". It was from Dr. Sun, the founding father of the Republic of China on on Taiwan!

And there are so many other things you don't know about China and the East, really!
Well, if China had not closed their borders for hundreds of years, we might actually know something of China.

Yeah, that would have been the case. By the way, Cantonese is derived from the province Canton, which is pronounced Guangdong in Mandarin Chinese (Putonghua). Bordering on Hong Kong and with which it shares the same dialect, this is the province where China's reform was initiated.

And to make it relevant to this thread, China has one advantage over India in that China has one official language (the Han language) that most ethnic Chinese of all over the world understand. While in India, as I understand it, they have so many different languages. That may have hindered its development, despite its common use of English.

On the flip side, busuinesses have found the advantage in India, educated, qualified people willing to work for low wages that also speak English. So it's worked out for them in that way too.
I think the slow development has more to do with organization than anything else.

I agree with my Chinese friends here, for all the articles in the media, India and China are not in competition with each other. Instead, they are following their own paths to development

The potential for India-China cooperation is staggering. I will have to dig up the article I read about how if India and China were to just trade with each other, they can easily be the single largest economy in the world, several times over.

Just think of it: there are more consumers in India and China then the entire rest of the world. The Indian middle class alone is larger than the entire population of America, and I would think the same goes for China too

Hi

The majority of India's electrical power is natural gas plants, which account for 60% of power. Building hydro power is hard to do in India compared to China, not as much because there isn't many places for it, but because there will be so much red tape, lawsuits, etc. for major dam projects in India. It would be a legal nightmare to do something similar in scale to the 3 gorges dam which displaced so many people. Even so, hydro power accounts for almost a third of India's energy output. Nuclear is about 7-8%, and there is plan to make it up to 15%

Energy infrastructure is not great in India, but its expected to be a major focus of development due to Indias booming energy needs. The majority of these needs incidently will be fulfilled from liquified natural gas from mainly UAE, Iran and central Asia like Uzbekistan and Kazakhistan

Cheers,
Raj
