外文标题：Change doesn't happen overnight: PM Modi in China
SHANGHAI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday that India and China hold the "potential to help the world with the problems it faces".
Addressing a gathering of Indian diaspora in Shanghai, the PM said that "India and China represent one third of humanity." "Together, we can be a force of good for the entire world," Modi said.
The PM also said that it was "imperative that we increase people to people contact between India and China".
In his speech, Modi made several references of May 16, 2014, the day the results of last year's general elections in India were announced.
The PM said that there is vast change in the state of affairs in India since the time he has taken charge.
"International agencies are saying that India is the fastest growing economy in the world," the PM said.
However, citing example of China, the PM asked Indians to not to be impatient for change.
"Change does not happen overnight. It has taken China over 30 years to attain high growth rate," the PM said.

We will have to watch what China says officially on Modi's visit, before our tall claims of successful tour.

It took only 66 years for Congress to destroy India which Muslims kings couldn't do in 800 years and Brits couldn't do in 250 years. It took 30 years to develop for China and it is only one years for BJP which has achieved what Congress couldn't do in 66 years.
But change in petrol prices happen overnight, taxing extra on millions of middle class which is already struggling for a respectful survival

Modi works day and night..what does this mean. When I was in school, some of my friends did very little studying while others burned the midnights oil. The ones that struggled the most came out with the least score !!

Modi speech in China was unbelievable and unthinkable. It never happened in China. China being closed society, never allowed this to happen before. It is only Modi who has made it possible. This event carries more importance than his events im USA Australia, Canada. The whole world is stunned. Heads off to Modi.
