It will be quite interesting to know , how Modi's govt will deal in this matter.
Don't buy Chinese items and prepare yourself to live without them or be prepared to pay twice or thrice for replacements if available. China will not become poor.

Chinese market should also be opened for Indian goods. It cannot be one way traffic. More over most of the chinese goods are hazardous and nil shelf life.
