What do Indian people think about China?
Brij Mohan Jaiswal, works at Students
most of the people of India doesn’t have a positive sentiment on china because Indian people love china till 1962 but its was unfortunate that the war happened in 1962 and India had loss its first war after independence. so i’ll say each and every people of india especially north, west and east india know about that and from that onward the love for the china had lost and eventually today also around 80% of youth is not have a positive sentiment on china. what Indian think of china is clear that china can any day may war with India. Indian have not such idea about chinese people and their culture.

Clerly speaking Indian people don’t have much knowledge about China but those Indians who actually interested in overseas news knows that China is a ally of Pakistan and always support Pakistan which is a cause of concern and many Indians think of China as India’s arch rival because in 2016 China has used its un veto thrice to block India’s move in un to list Masood Azhar as terrorist and they snubbed our bid to become a nsg member and at last when they wanted support on South China sea they begged in front of us and after surgical strike in Pakistan by Indian army China has supported Pakistan by blocking brahmaputra water and after all these news Indians don't like and hate them because we were always friendly towards them and we eventually denied permanent unsc seat for ourselves when US and Soviet Union asked India for but still they don’t keep friendly relation with us.
I think China is a land of the corrupt comm*sts.
People in HK are fed up of the govt and want freedom.
Their products are destroying our markets despite being cheap quality.
They are very envious of other developing nations and hate democracy.
Hand in glove with Pakistan.
They eat big spiders and scorpions and also baby fetuses.

We Indians think that Chinese are intelligent and Chinese think vise versa, China should make true friendship with India and Respect Law & Order.
Legal India Map, Protected by Law & Order: Respect Law & Order.
I’ve never visited China, so it’s just my thoughts and opinions about China. I will not offence anyone and it’s just my personal opinions. So it will vary person to person.
Aggressive Country: I don’t know if this is true or not, but aggression is a first thing that I imagine China with.
Maybe it’s because of our media and social networking sites, who always present China as they want to start “World War 3″. Especially after we heard the news that China is making an artificial island in South China sea.
Manufacturing: In India almost everyone is aware and use Chinese items. And what we know about Manufacturing in China is that if it’s made in China then it will definitely not last long.
In fact, we make a lot jokes about chinese items. Like, if something breaks then it certainly ‘made in china’.
These two things are just what we think a lot of China.

What made me answer this question is that I have my better half who is Chinese. Yes, I am married to a Chinese and we have a beautiful Australian-born daughter who is half Chinese and half Indian. My daughter can speak three languages, English (Native to Australian) and Hindi and Mandarine fluently.
"China has equality: women hold up half the sky.
India has the caste system and girls get raped all the time.”
When, in 2012, my in-laws visited my parents the very first time it was the time during the construction and preparation of Commonwealth Games, in New Delhi.
On the arrival at Indira Gandhi International Airport, my Chinese father in laws commented that India is what China was 20 years ago. I could not argue any further as it is true in the terms of current infrastructure. I partially agreed and nodded only as a respect to his personal views but did not contribute to dialogues. However, my wife did and said to her baba (daddy) that India is too young a nation for that matter as it is just got independence on 15th day of August, 1947. For this matter, China has its freedom quite earlier.
She further contributed that building Infrastructure on a national level takes time and money. My wife being an Australian Graduate Architect (Masters of Architecture from Sydney University) and knows more than me in terms of Infrastructure.
Now my Chinese wife (Australian trained Architect) commented that Chinese Infrastructure is already started getting old. There are part of China where high-rise apartment slums are growing at very high speed due to oversupply and obsession with American skyscrapers.

Few thought s
Firstly there are a lot of them. Imagine more than us
They have a one child policy for a long time.
Their government is meddling with nature too much like artificial rain etc.
Their sports policies are very tough.
They like dangal and Aamir khan.
They are mostly physically fit due to their diet and kung fu

Chinese people :
don't care about things as long as they have opportunities
also some misconception about Chinese food:
they eat all things living and dead
they eat dogs and reptiles often
that Indian Chinese food like Indian noodles , Manchurian , etc are actually Chinese recipes
they eat only rice (I personally don't know about any chinese wheat food)

Indian people think about China as the land of Kung Fu and Buddisam as they watch in Hollywood movies . I am telling you honestly as an Indian I know i am telling you truth that they know China as importing low quality things to other countries as Bulbs and toys etc. as well they think only Chinese people have small eyes when ever an North Indian or South Indian see North-East Indian they call them Chinese this our mentality and there is so much racism this is the truth of our country . and i am telling you one funny thing we Indians think that Chinese people only eats dog and bees sort of things I don't know this is truth or not coz I have never been there . our relations on border but all above humanity is something and in Hindi (national language of India ) there is a phrase called Hindi Chini Bhai Bhai it means Indians and Chinese are brothers to make friendship between our nations personally I like China as an Indian .
印地语有一句话叫做“Hindi Chini Bhai Bhai”，意思是印度人和中国人是兄弟。

The people i know usually have these assumptions about China
- they feel China is still a overpopulated country
-China just produces fake and duplicate products
-they're badass as they warred with us
-they are not reliable at all as they backtracked after the Hindi chini bhaibhai stint
-there is no freedom in China. You can't do what you want. Majority of public works like bonded labourers. You can't own property there.
-they eat weird food like dogs,earthworms, cockroaches ,embryos etc
-they are strong military wise
-they daily eat chow mein

I am an Indian and I see China's growth and might with respect . I see Chinese people as very focussed, hardworking and with cultural values
Dhananjay Kumar, IT Engineer
china is a greater threat to india than pakistan
I probably a quora-enlightened Indian but here is my view anyway. First, most of the Chinese I have encountered are very honest about their opinion. If they feel India is better than China they will tell you so. They all genuinely want Asia to be united and not wage wars against one another(something most of them commonly agreed to).

Cool, efficient, intelligent and hardworking.
Indians think China as our competitor .even though they are not good at (English) neutral accents like us.
And ask a common Indian guy what he thinks of China..he ll say they make awesome things like mobiles ,toys everything that are inexpensive and affordable by everyone..but they won't last long enough.

China is a masssive country with a huge population. Martial Arts, Chinese Products, Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee and Pandas ( things that come to my mind when I think of China).
China is a badass rebel of Asia who wants to control the region, reason why most of the countries don't have good relations with China in the region , including India.
Anyway, I reckon the people of China are very nice and friendly and people here don't have anything against the CHINESE , and all the hate and dislike is between the Governments of both countries.
A great country with nice food, love their dimsums
Production hub. Most products are built in China.
Great economy. A lot of development.
Great entrepreneurial culture. Xiaomi and Alibaba.
Chinese girls are pretty.
Your action movies are nice. Just love them.
Hate it, because owns a part of our country because we lost the 1962 war.
Leave Arunachal Pradesh alone. It belongs to us.

The average Indian has most likely not heard of the war of 1962, or of the border conflicts we had since. Indian history post-independence gets very little coverage in school textbooks, so most people don't remember anything about it.
