the success of china is indeed spectacular, its pace of progress is rapid, it is getting better by the day. its leadership deserves a great credit. congratulations to china, of course. my view is that it is not necessarily the car, it is the driver behind the wheel. india has now good leadership, and it too will progress well. the years ahead are going to be exciting for both china and india. lucky, lucky.
What China shows to others is different from what China actually is! I am sure there are more destitute and impoverished people in China than India!

I live in china. And i truely agree with this article. This democratic system had given us a very little and has taken soo much. Meanwhile china has developed so much that in future america will be left behind

Better watch your back, if you even make any attempt to speak against the Chinese government! You are free to come back to India and say whatever you want!

They have grown rapidly once they opened their economy after the death of Mao. China opened their market 10-15 years ahead of India and gained tremendous advantage, but India will catch up soon and would be growing fast under the leadership of Mr Modi. Democracy is slow but lasting like an elephant, we must stick to our democratic values.
