In the running of bullet trains, Japan has a proven capability. China is yet to establish this as they are new to this technology.
observer 888 (South Africa) replies to Natanam Iyer
China has more experience in running of high speed trains than Japan because of scale. China has more than 19,000 km of HSR as oppose to 3000 km by Japan. By 2020, China is expected to have 30,000 km.
Natanam Iyer replies to observer 888
Is it not because Japan is small in area and China very big?
KP () replies to Natanam Iyer
Chinese technology is advanced than Japan’s. Japan is still testing its maglev technology.
Natanam Iyer replies to KP
Since the introduction of Shinkansen by Japanese decades ago, there is not a single accident till date though the speed of the trains are 280-320 km per hour and the trains leave Tokyo every 15 minutes on an average. Japanese technology is definitely more reliable.
Under no circumstances, India should allow China to come near to its markets be it Railways or for that reason anything. How can we afford to deal with the most cunning nation in the world? Can we forget 1962?
Vinod Agarwal (Asia) replies to Indian
That was history. This is not 1962. We should try to move on.
Krishna M Singh (Unknown) replies to Indian
1962 was caused by both nations if u read history. Yeah they won war but than it wasn’t started by one side. Good thing is they moved back to pre-1962 line of control saying talks shud solve issue not war. Cann SINGLE person say why they moved back and give their won land in 1962 back to India???? Think. China was till Assam but still they moved back to pre-1962 border. They could have occupied both Assam and Arunanchal that time in war?. So talks only shud resolve issue and we should not hate China just for 1962. I agree we must make sure its repeat doesn’t happen. For train, whosoever give technology to us should be welcome. We should be self reliant after a project or two from outside.
