古印度人是否会觉得中国不如他们?

以下是Quora读者的评论:

Probably. Using the definition of ancient as the pre-classical period (before the rise of Rome and Han China), China was in constant disarray, or when united, their dynasties were either weak (compared to the Indians) or short-lived. What did the Indians have?

The Mauryan Empire, rivalling Seleucid Persia. It would not be abnormal for such a powerful empire to look down on weaker ones.

可能吧。如果说这里说的“古时候”是指罗马和汉朝崛起前,那么当时的中国一直处于混乱之中,即便统一了,相比印度,中国的封建王朝不是国力弱,就是短命。

而当时的印度人又如何?

印度当时的孔雀王朝的实力,可以和塞琉古帝国波斯相抗衡。

如此强大的印度孔雀王朝,看不起实力比自己弱的国家,也算正常啦。

I would say NO and the reason is Ancient Indian people considered that noone is inferior to them. The common belief system was that “All life on earth is precious, and we should do no harm it”.

If you look at old times, we were in business with people in China and Arabs. If they were inferior then Indians would have ruled all of China which is not the case. Indian subcontinent was not one of those aggressive attackers which in turn may be considered as another reason to support that we never considered other people, in general, inferior to us.

不会啦。古印度人不会觉得谁不如他们啦。

当时印度人普遍认为,“一切生命都是宝贵的,我们都不应该去伤害生命”

回顾历史,我们印度人一直和中国和阿拉伯有着商业往来。

如果当时的印度人觉得他们劣等,可能就会统治中国,显然历史并非如此。

印度次大陆上的人民并不具有侵略性,这也许是我们从来没有觉得其他国家不如我们的另一个证据。

Yes, ancient Indians consider China inferior. Actually I would argue even modern Indians consider China inferior. They may look richer on the paper, but they are an aut-rian re gie while we are the largest de acy in the world, so our people’s quality of life is way better. Also, I would not consider Chinese beautiful people while Indians are perceived to be beautiful by the world just by noting how many Miss Worlds and Miss Universes India has supplied the world

是的,没错,古印度人觉得中国不如他们。

其实啊,我还觉得现代印度人也觉得中国不如印度。

中国人外表可能光鲜亮丽,也许看起来更富裕,不过我们可是世界上最大的皿煮国家啊,我们人民的生活质量好太多了。

还有,我并不觉得中国人好看。

形成对比的是,全世界的人都觉得印度人长得美。比如,印度美女多次摘得世界小姐和环球小姐的桂冠。
