原文标题：After Wen, new China rulers seal their lips on India
BEIJING: For the fourth year in a row, a Chinese premier has avoided discussing India during his once-a-year press conference, held at the end of the parliamentary session. The conscious move to avoid discussing China's biggest neighbour is a conscious policy move that deserves to be closely studied, observers and analysts of China-India relations said.
New premier Li Keqiang fielded questions from journalists from different countries including Russia, another neighbour with which it has had troubles in the past, but did not call any of the three Indian journalists in Beijing at his annual presser on Sunday. He also discussed China's competition with the US presence which, the Chinese say, is geared towards expanding American sphere of influence in the Asia Pacific.
Former foreign minister Yang Jeichi, who held a press conference before leaving office recently, discussed several countries including Japan and Russia but kept India out of his conversations with the media. Former premier Wen Jiabao did not discussed Beijing's relations with New Delhi in his annual press conferences during the last three years.
Sources said these are signs that the Chinese leadership does not want to discuss whether or not it would support India's claim for a seat in the Security Council or China's arms supply to Pakistan.
China is also worried that any comment on India may spark off a controversy and a slanging match between newspapers and television in the two countries, sources said. Chinese leaders and officials have earlier complained about the Indian media exaggerating the differences between the two countries, and the government even sponsored a conference to discuss the role of media in the two countries.
Former premier Wen Jiabao had taken a question from the TOI correspondent in 2008 to specifically convey his thanks to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for curbing anti-China demonstrations by some Tibetans in New Delhi in the run-up to the Beijing Olympic. But ever since, there has been a studious silence in Beijing's public posturing vis-a-vis New Delhi, which tends to reveal nuances. Chinese leaders have been silent on India, leaving the matter of issuing statements to foreign ministry spokespersons.
Before China takes us seriously, lets take our country seriously first. If we are only famous for rapes and corruption, no other country would want to discuss us.. as they have nothing to say about us.

May be you are the best example for your point? Why they are avoiding means...we are growing..this activity is purely the outcome of jealous..But I hope they have under estimated Indians..We are not stolen any technolgy / knowledge from others... China is glittering with stolen technologies only..they are not invented anything... Just because of havinf few more atom bombs they are not superior. They may be go waste during the actual need. Any True war can only teach the truth

China simply does not care for India. Why should it discuss about an impoverished and socially backward country when it has bigger things to think about?

They haven't discussed India because India doent matter for them. For them competetion is with the Japan, USA and UK not with India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. India is a fun game for them and they play it well. India can do nothing but curse the Chinese.

China only reacts to America and Russia, It has nothing to worry from a low lying country like India, Being high up the boundaries of Himalayas, it doesn't have to worry about Indian army's movements, altitude helps it. Most Chinese I have met, don't know much about India at all, while Indians keep on dreaming about competing with China.

India has an inflated view of itself. Not until it is strong economically will India matter. It is to China's credit that after its disastrous years under Mao, it changed policy and opened itself economically to the world , attracting labor intensive manufacturing. We on the other hand were held hostage to the unions and did not institute labor reforms. We were therefore unable to build manufacturing and provide employment to unskilled people from the rural areas. We also followed self defeating populist policies and banckrupted our country. The government should minimize its foot print in the economy and reform the beuracracies to minimize their ability to interfere with free markets. India still has the potential to grow and reduce poverty if the correct policies are instituted and implemented.

For the world, India is just a third world, corrupt, dirty country, full of rapists (new development). Are not we and our corrupt leaders are ashamed of all these things? Even tiny Sri Lanka does not care anymore. Try to do some good work instead of corruption, and pompous talking.

India is not as important as most Indians and some NRI's pretend. I am just mentioning an example. When i went to Canada 10 years ago, my qualification was not recognized and my first job was a parking attendant. I felt that most Canadian female do'nt like Indians. As i was a parking attendant in a busty hotel , i had to interact with lot of customers. I asked female customer's a single question? Would you like to settle with a Indian guy? the answer was "IF YOU ARE A BLACK OR HISPANIC I WILL TAKE YOU AT FACE VALUE, HOWEVER IF YOU ARE A INDIAN OR PAKISTANI THERE MUST BE TANGIBLE CHANGE IN MY LIFE STYLE AS A RESULT OF MY MARRIAGE TO YOU". I asked this question to 2766 people, and i don't remember any one saying yes. This is what is India's image in abroad.

Let China think that about its large neighbour! If it continues to do so it will be at its own cost. China has a very arrogant attitude to most of its neighbours (N Korea) being the only exception. Remember even a mosquito can bring Malaria.....

Two reasons why China is ignoring any comments on India: 1. They dnt want India to raise any counter issue on Tibet. 2. They dnt want to affect the huge consumer market of India flooding with chinese made goods. Simple and Clever. :)
