原文题目:This is Huaxi, China’s richest village!
Huaxi village, set up in 1961, is China’s richest village. It is also called the No.1 Village of China.
Here everyone lives in a villa and owns cars — imported cars.
In this village of Huaxi, a booming market town of 36,000 in China’s affluent eastern province of Jiangsu, every family has at least one house or villa, two cars and $250,000 in the bank.
The villagers homes/villas are of around 4,000 sq ft to 6,000 sq ft area.
The annual sales revenue of the village is around $30.78 billion.
One man is credited with turning around the fortunes of the village: Wu Renbao, who was the secretary of the village’s local branch of the Communist Party. Read on to find out how he did it …
Wu Renbao adopted a set of policies that were an amalgam of free market economics and customary principles of communism.
About 40 years ago, Wu Renbao, a farmer himself, propelled a movement which saw Huaxi transform itself from an agriculture-driven economy into an industrial powerhouse.
The village built factories by the hundreds and the disciplined villagers, who all work seven days a week and take breaks only once in a while, soon realised the fruits of hard labour and smart transition from agriculture to industry.
The village itself is like no other Chinese village or city. It resembles a western suburb that has been just plucked from the American countryside and transplanted into China.
Officials from elsewhere in China tour Huaxi to find out how this once sleepy village, with just 576 residents in the 1950s, is now so rich and why non-local businessmen would donate million-dollar factories to buy the privilege of a local residence permit.
Huaxi Village has adhered to a path of ‘relying on the collective economy and working for common prosperity’, says People’s Daily.
Big items like villas and cars are distributed in a uniform way to the villagers here.
People do not have to pay for it as the village distributes this wealth.
The construction and decoration are uniformly designed by the village, and also paid for by the village.

China knows very well to immitate or copy paste others. Once they lost a role model, they will be in no man’s land. It will start to face stiff challenge to lead peoples ambition and vision for better living

This article doesn’t say how exactly the change came about. We would like to know how this transformation came about and how the village mixes traditional communism and capitalism.
This is poor journalism. Looks like the author of this piece just wanted to share his incomplete information with others.

There are pros and cons to each way of governance.
Can anyone of imagine living in India where there is no freedom to
Have Children with no permission
Enjoy Life Freely.
Agreed our politicians are corrupt and not good enough, do we exchange that for a dictatorship? Just because we didn’t like a subject at school, did we abandon education? I guess not.
China has progressed far and fast, but at what cost? Do you know, during the Bejing Olympics, thousands of families were packed off onto trucks and sent off to the countryside, their homes razed to build stadiums and multiplexes….. to impress the world about China. Can we for one moment imagine that during the CWG, we can manage to do it and as a nation condone the action.
Yes, India is not perfect, but at least we are free. Do you think we would be able to have this discussion in China? Check out the news..there is a black out in China due to the Nobel Prize winner. Figure it out fellow citizens

Middle class and upper middle class people can sit all day and talk about freedom’s virtues. At the end of the day, nothing matters when one has no food on his/her plate. The so called non-existense of freedom in China is just a propoganda by US of A. I’m from India and have lived in both China and USA. Believe me, India can break the shackles of poverty and corruption more easily by the Chinese form of governance than the failed democracy as we have it.

You mean to tell me that there was no black out on the Nobel Prize ceremony, no one was evicted from Bejing to beautify the city and that one can have as many kids if so one wishes? Freedom matters to those who have lived without it. Try living in a room all by yourself without any communication for a week. Then even a whiff of fresh air would precious. I am from India but have been often a second class citizen coz, I was from the south and staying in the north east.

While I do not support or justify India’s corruption or do not agree to the USA throwing it’s weight around Mr krishna has made very valid observations about China. China is still a dictatorship ruled by a few headstrong individuals.In any totalitarian regime the dictatorship censors what the outside world should see and what it should not.In other words whatever China shows or the figures that it projects to the outside world cannot be believed since everything is in the control of a few individuals.A dictator will never rule in the interest of the nation, he rules according to his whims and fancies.
Coming to India, I accept that corrupt politicians have literally looted this country, but at the same time India is not at the mercy of these politicians, there is always ahope for change.A few instances are.
1. T.N Seshan took over as CEC and became a nightmare to all unscrupulous politicians.
2. Laloo who at one point of time was undefeatable in Bihar had to make way for Nitish Kumar.
3. Even Indira gandhi who was virtually “India”(almost a dictator) had to make way for Morarji.These things were possible in India thanks to elections.
Iam opposed to dictatorship only because they hold unlimited and unaccountable power and whatever they do cannot be questioned. No single authority should have absolute power. I welcome any questions/comments on my views
我不支持或者辩解印度的腐败，或者不赞同美国在克利须那神（指印度）面前展现力量，而对中国则无有效的监视。中国仍然是由少数寡头统治的专政政权。在任何极权政体， 独裁政权审查外部世界可以看的和不可以看的。换言之，不管中国向外部世界展示什么或者披露数据都不值得相信，因为一切都在少数几个人掌控之中。独裁者永远 不会以国家的利益为出发点来统治，而是反复无常。

Politicians are not aliens or chinese or Americans. They too are fellow Indians. We Indians have fallen into the bad habit of taking short-cuts. Gradually the system has become so rotten and we all are responsible for that. The day we shed our communal affiliations like caste and belief, then we will have a much better national vision. Until then the people with a national vision will be labeled as non-secular. The real patriots shall be flocked along with the real communal morons.

My dear friend,
If you live in CV Raman Nagar and think it is Bangalore, you will write a lot of great things about the City. But entire Bangalore isnt CV Raman Nagar. Similarly the rosy picture of IT and front office isn’t exactly what China is all about. Unlike India, you wont be even allowed outside the so called SEZ. Do you know a company called Foxconn the major supplier for Apple iPhone? Think of the living standard of “normal” worker there. Do you know China is involved in building Rail roads in Nigeria and other african countries? Do you know what kind of Chinese work there? And their condition?
Yes all these things are things I have not seen with my own eyes, but have gained from corroborating information available online. If seeing is believing then we are not fit to live in this information age!
亲爱的朋友，如果你住在C.V. 拉曼纳格尔区，却认为它就是班加罗尔市，那么你可以对这座城市大唱赞歌。但是整个班加罗尔市并不就是C.V. 拉曼纳格尔区。类似地，美好的画面并不遍布中国。不像印度，你在中国将不被允许走出所谓的经济特区。你知不知道苹果iPhone的主要供应商富士康？想象 一下那里的“普通”工人的生活标准吧。你知道中国参与了尼日利亚和其他非洲国家的铁路建设吗？你知道那里工作的中国人怎么样吗？还有他们的条件？

Reading all the messages given below , I just have one doubt – Are we so slow in improving because we are so good in complaining ? We read an article on China and instead of thinking of ways to duplicate that success here , we are more interested in complaining about everything associated with our country – the politicians , the beaurocrats , the religions , OTHER people ; infact everybody except ourselves . Are we so impotent that we can’t do anything for our country except sit and blame others ? Any improvement we need to make for our country starts with ourselves . Tomorrow if we decide that we won’t dump our garbage on the streets , pay bribes or jump queues , day after it will spread . It will take time but eventually the whole country will improve . And for all those losers who tell me that i’m impractical , every single achievement in human history was made by somebody who believed in themselves .
看了文章下的所有评论后，我只有一个疑问？我们进步如此慢，是不是因为我们擅长抱怨？看这篇关于中国的文章后，我们不是考虑在这里复制成功，而是更感兴趣于抱 怨国家的一切：政客、官僚主义者、宗教、除了自己外的任何人。我们是否如此软弱无能，以致于除了抱怨别人不能为国家做任何事。我们需要为国家做的任何改进 从自身开始。如果我们明天决定不再将垃圾倒在街上，不再贿赂或者插队，第二天将会传播开。这需要时间，但是整个国家最终将会进步。至于那些声称这是不切实 际的失败者，人类历史的每一项成就是由自信的人取得的。

Since the muslims of china knows this game, they are silent. In general, all world muslims are against indians.

Our police and judiciary are the most corrupt in world. They together with corrupt politicians are hindering India’s progress. India still follows primitive british laws and the powerful and the rich are the rulers in India. You can pay 1000 to a policeman and arrest a poor fellow and put him in jail for several months. A corrupt woman can similarly send anybody to jail on a false complaint at any police station. This India will take one thousand years to reach the present level of prosperity of China.
我们的警察和法官是世界上最腐败的。他们和腐败的政客一起妨碍印度的进步。印度仍然遵循原始的英国法律。掌权者和富人是印度 的统治者。你可以用1000卢比收买一个警察，逮捕一个贫穷的家伙，将其投入监狱数个月。类似地，腐败的女人可以在警察局以虚假的投诉将任何人送入监狱。 这样的印度需要一千年才能达到中国的繁荣水平。

The main reason for Chinas success is the shift from Agriculture to Industry. Small towns have many factories and they just depend on rains like our farmers. They are hardworking and as a group form zones for producing cost effective goods.

Imagine you were told to only do one thing in your life, say, “Manufacture forks and nothing else. Try going independent and making more money for yourself and we will put you in jail for anti-communism or label you a counter-revolutionary.” Jail is a simple term for the trouble that will follow.
Our problem isn’t democrazy, in fact it’s a boon. Democracy has earned a bad name only due to how our leaders have abused their power to influence. China relies on the one party policy since it thinks this way it can reduce corruption, but it still happens there too.
Yes, the Chinese are hard working, but that’s because not working hard can have serious punishments otherwise. If you’re good in school, you are sent to teach in a nondescript village(doesn’t matter if you want to start your own company or work in a company of YOUR choice)! The Chinese people’s news is based on heresay! On rumuors! The Tiananmen massacre was unknown to most people and students from other regions when it happened. Things haven’t changed much since then – people are told what to think and cannot do so independently.
Democracy gives us a right to be what we want to be – we can even choose to stop spitting (since we all learned in school that it was a nasty habit) and … simple civic sense, but still we continue to do so – don’t blame democracy for it.

It reflects the general attitude in all walks of life in India. We are only thinking about how to get our work done (somehow). It is of very little (or no) concern that how the other people around us are going to get their job done. That is why, instead of fixing the system, we always prefer to go around it to get our own job done. A few privileged ones get their work done and rest of the India suffers.

a few days back china tested its latest version of high speed trains(HST)on the newly laid beijing-shanghai track & achieved a speed of 486 km/hr.imagine beijing to shanghai in just 4hours,this will make their airlines feel jittery.if indian railways could do this our private airlines would not have dared to blackmail the govt. in india we are still languishing @ 160 km/hr;i.e one third the speed of china.well are economy is only 25% of china. it is the western press paid by the indian govt which is continuing to compare india with china,infact as above,there exists no comparison,they are far far ahead.since i go to china @least once/year,every year i see remarkable progess achieved.

If it happens in India,some group will destroy it.
It will never run on schedule or even run at all someone will rip the track apart and some other group will come and sit on the tracks with slogan TRAIN ROKO.
INDIA NEEDS A RULE OF THE GUN BEFORE IT STARTS THINKING ABOUT HIGH SPEED TRAINS.
where high speed trains run perfectly in the rest of the world India high speed will be marred by accidents regularly.
ALL BECAUSE OF ADVANTAGE TAKING POLITICIANS AND STUPID PUBLIC.

It is still possible. For short distance trains between metros such as chennai to Bangloru, chennai hyderabad, chennai to coimbatore, Delhi to lucknow,Delhi to chandigarh etc, railways can run fully air conditioned non stop trains specially at night.Some extra facilty could also be given like coach attendents more toilet,towels and tooth paste etc like in five star hotels.You will see many people will shift from air to railways.Also from key points in cities to stations.Fare can be slightly increased.

Who says they are a communist state. It is a free market economy, the model of a capitalist economy. And they are neither a democracy. It is a totalitarian state.

If China is richer than India due to communism why are our two communist states (West Bengal and Kerala) so backward? It’s not only the political system but also the way it’s implemented/followed and attitude of people that determines the success of any nation. India has it’s natural resources in abundance. But, is it being properly exploited? We elect poor leaders who exploit people who inturn blame everything and everybody in the world and don’t care to even cast their vote properly. As they say, ‘no pain no gain’.
In the above article they talk of the villagers working through out the week!!! Do we work properly even for 5 days a week? Most of us are deeply self centered and selfish and so are our leaders because they merely reflect a poor us!!! So, we as citizens need to improve…improve our outlook and the way we think and act. Today it’s China and tomorrow it will be some african country that would beat us on all fours if we do not change our attitude!!!

Kerala backward?? In which aspect? It is on the top when it comes to Human Development index, whether it is healthcare, literacy, minimum wages etc. Btw I am not a keralite

Kerala is not backward,which is true. But same time you can’t justify by saying due to communist regime Kerala became developed. Rather truth is almot one person in every family works in middle east, which that makes their state richer not by those communist people. And, mark my word, in near future Kerala will beterrorist hub, because you do not know to whom are you shelter. People are coming illegaly from Bangaladesh, Pakistan and stay there and make your as well as rest of India miserable.

@ag: Why are you comparing communism in India with communism in other countries… In India politics is for power.
BENGAL is one of the worst states in India. KERALA is better (I am from Kerala)…thats not because of communism or not …. its all people …who make things good or bad…

Kerala is extremely backward. Just because of Gulf money the development index is good. Go and see the roads. Roads in Bihar are far far betetr. It took me 4 and lald hrs ro travel from palakkad to Kochi last week. It was a back breaking journey. With no industrial development it is just collapsing.
Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: China is Richer
by Nagaraj (View MyPage) on Dec 06, 2010 11:18 PM
I go by human development index and per capita income to judge whether a state is developed or not. From whatever reports I read, Kerala is doing well, in fact, much much better than other states, on both fronts. Whether the money comes from Gulf or some other source, hardly matters. Why cant people from other backward states like Bihar, UP, MP, WB go to gulf n make money? Who stopped them?

Why do I see so many negative and hostile messgaes on this article? The author clearly says it is the efforts of one man in the 50s that transformed this village. Now, it is a tourist attraction and a model for other chinese villages. To call it a village is a misnomer, from what one sees in the photos.
However, we Indians shoudl open our eyes to reality. Whatever you say about communism and lack of free speech, etc., China has developed in leaps and bounds. The chinese are very hard working people. China is now far ahead of India in many respects. the sooner we common people of India and the idiotic leadership that we have realize this truth, the faster we can do something to try and catch up. Let us not be like the ostrich with its head in the sand. Wake up Indians. We can also do it, if we have the right attitude and work hard.

non-sense comment….its a village made by dedication and hard work from its inhibitant….not a leisure township like lavasa where mostly corrupt money will be used for purchase of property by rich mass.

They create some village like this for propaganda that all is fine in their country. If all the villages are like this, why is China considered one of the poorest countries in the world and their GDP is only 6000 dollars which is very low.
They spend all the money on extravaganzas like Asian games and some select cities just to boast that they are on par with USA and the rest of the poor in the country have no voice.

To be fair, we should not criticise them but inspire ourselves to reach the benefits of development to our own people.By criticising them we will not benefit, but surely we will benefit if we are amenable to learning from them.
You would agree, our people – especially in rural areas – are living in inhuman conditions. Our political class and bureaucracy do not feel any sense of responsibility towards our citizens.
It is ok if they enrich themselves but must also ensure development reaches the people. Our guys are just inspired by unsatiated greed. The people are going for a toss. For how many years are we going to remain a developing country.If East Germany was brought near par with West Germany in just 10 years, there is surely something our guys are not doing.

The Chinese by far are much ahead of India. Here in India the politicians and businessmen will grab land at low rates all in the name of development, whereas in china atleast a great part goes to the citizens.
