When others are balking, China is encroaching. Building sustainable governance and later infrastructure led to US being considered as a safe nation for investment and progress. Nations flocked with either their money or their citizenry, to be part of this emerging cauldron of success. China is fast emulating. Few years back starting several top line scientific journals and conferences. We see scores of such examples in several field.
We are still mired in our age old war of restitute issues and building bullet trains. No centralized policy to build vision except a nation composed of only Hindus, no policy on integration except nominating titular presidency and playing a vote bank of states, pardoning the excesses of stalwart industrialists and ignoring those who work on the bottom line, all adding to fomenting to culminate into a natural revolt.
After 6-8 centuries, we are yet to reconcile the fact that we are a pleural nation but bask in the glory of our great great great … grandfather, who achieved that amazing success, without realizing that all that progress is historical, fleeting and time lapsed as snap shot. We call ourselves intellectuals and indulge in this jugad, possibly we can jugado a solution of of this chaos. You never know!
China offers 10-year visas to ‘high end talent’
… and China is not as dumb as US. Building that Gwadar port and the infra under India’s boundary, they have started siphoning interest from investment. Just watch Pakistan, roaming door to door for alms and crumbling to internal dissension and collapse. That collapse is not in the best of our interest though, since it creates chaos next door, which is very likely to have a bystander effect on us.
