For those interested in understanding China and India and indeed Asia more deeply, I would recommend much more highly the work of Kishore Mahbubani, Dean of the Lee Kwan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore.
This is customer service !
But, one thing dismayed me - it was the number of typos, calculation mistakes and grammatical errors! Poor job of editing.
China is efficient, with good engineers, hardware infrastructure. India is transparent, accountable, and with soft power. China government can complete projects over night, but the same project will take years to complete in India. India railways, 1.6 million employees, inefficient. China Shanghai Pudong airport, Maglev train, magnetic levitation, German tech, constructed in a short time.
I love the many personal accounts from the author. Through his in-depth interview, he got the primary source of data. Machimmar Village Dharavi slum coexists with the Ambani billionaires, only in India. Red Princes (sons and daughters) of China Communist Party ruled everything in China. While in India, it is done by consensus, just like USA.
The winning in the market place of National Stock Exchange over Bombay Stock Exchange, Weihua Group (China) success, Self Employed Women Association (India) The failure of Microsoft in China, TCL global stumble, Hukou registration system, GE Healthcare and GE Medical success stories make this book a compelling read.
Caste (India) has four levels:
a. Brahmins: the priest, teacher, philosopher for education and religion
b. Kshatriya or warrior class: kings, and defense governors
c. Vaisyas: traders for agriculture and commerce
d. Sudras: serve the above three

The problem of Chinese Health services was severe. 640 million Chinese received no health insurance coverage.
Huge investment in Burma was made, from Chinese top three oil firms: Chinese National Petroleum Corporation, Sinopec, and CNOOC. Now the top three are in Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Angola, and Nigeria.
1962 China India war was due to boarder issues. It was a set back for India. But a minor event in China.
In 2003, 3.6 billion people watched 1100 Bollywood movies, compared with 2.6 billions attended 600 Hollywood firms.
A quote from Jawaharlal Nehru, India and China fly over the mountain to bring their messages of cheer and goodwill and creat bonds of friendship that will endure. From Buddha to software, the cooperation of China and India is necessary.
At Singapore, Chinese is 77%, Indian 10%, rest Malay. It has been a success, while the Chinese and Indians worked together. The question is, will the two countries work together going forward?
