They are neighbors. They have the same population, they are both intelligent, well educated, hard working yet one is rich the other poor.

They are overpopulated therefore it is hard to care for so many people. India also has poor structured buildings making a natural disaster do alot more damage then it would do to America/canada. Back in history USA was industrializing and using alot of resources and killing the enviroment to get rich. But now that other countries want to do the same they can't because if they do they will destroy earth and global warming will be quicker and more severe. The ozone layer will be destroyed. USA already did so much harm to the atmosphere with polluting to become rich no other country can.

Other countries are really poor and its kinda impossible to distribute wealth across the world where were all equal. Reason being is because if everyone were to be equal, everyone would be poor.

It could be a legacy from British Imperialism. Surely that didn't help India's cause.

Do they have too many people? But China has more Yet in contrast China is so rich. Maybe democracy isn't good for poor countries.

A number of reasons.

1. It is not an ideal region for agriculture.

2. Lots of people.

3. Corruption.

4. They don't hide it, like Western nations do.

5. British colonization may have some to do with it.

China is as bad. But the differecne is the Han chinese wiped out other groups. India's majority Hindu's have to not only live with but help out all the minority groups.

Indian Hindus should follow Han and kill all Non vedic people and also remove caste system (which is pushed by the rich).

India should beomce nationalist socialist country like Hitler did. But of course successful and not invade other coutnries (except maybe Pakistan)
GOOD IDEA

They don't need a democracy. "Democracy" just favours rich and rich do anything to appease West.
My gf is Indian and her famnily have no caste and she told me "caste system was on the way out in many areas" but British accelerated it. Many rich Kigns etc benefit more udner Raj!

India needs to be more like China or they will be wiped out by scum like muslim similar to uuiguur pigs.

I'm proud Asian and proud China and India. They need settle things and make Asia one and punish the West

I hate seeing all these uneducated answers. Makes me afraid of the future of my country.

First, it has nothing to do with British colonialism. Hong Kong, Singapore, Canada, Australia... so many former British colonies did very well. Also, many did poorly. Zimbabwe is an example.

But look at the countries when Britain was in charge and then afterwards when the "native" population took over. Did much more poorly.

Nothing about corruption because China is very, very corrupt. Here, anyone can do any business or any crime they want. Pollute, speed, business without license... just need to pay some "grey money". It's in the system and all Chinese know it but are embarrassed about it.

So what is different?

Simple.

Think how China was 30 years ago. How did they get so rich? They adopted the capitalist system that the west favoured. They allowed free markets and businesses. Foreign companies came here and opened factories. Chinese companies also opened up and sold lots of things to the west.

Without the west buying Chinese goods, we would not have the wealth we have today, this is indisputable fact. We still need the west to buy our things, or else, the wealth we have will just circulate around our country. In effect, our wealth is growing on the backs of the west. Haha!!

Keep buying our things, America and Europe. And keep borrowing money from us to buy these things. haha

Just three reasons. Hinduism and the caste system.
Hinduism says that God created the caste system. This is a lie. No God will create a caste system, which is very cruel, evil and destructive. Indians are very religious but they are following a religion that is false, and is not a true religion.
British Imperialism damaged India, but HIndus helped British to conquer India and fought with them and for them. When the British took over, they thought things will get better, but they got worse. Then they fought Britain for hundreds of years to get Independence. This is stupid.
This is the third reason. Indians are very stupid and you can make them believe anything.
You are probably a Muslim. That is why you are such a moron. Even if otherwise, assuming you are a believer how do you reconcile your faith in a higher power, a creator which is only responsible for the creation of supposedly good things with the fact that evil seems to be all pervasive.

India is not Poor, but in India few people are more rich. Middle class is also growing, and it is of population of USA about 300 Million. Poor people are mostly belonging to backward classes. When Hindus were living traditionally then everyone had job. But, when British education system came, then new schools were needed which are not enough. Government schools are not enough and education is costly, lack of hospitals, lack of toilets. First there use to be Ayurvedic medicine experts but with Allopathic now everyone needs that doctor and hospital. Although now Ayurvedic medicine is growing demand everywhere in India and outside India. Because modernization and Britishers brought Machines to India, because of that several traditional arts, handcrafts, weavers, etc lost there jobs. Few people use to make iron from iron ore but since advanced weapons came then there job had no demand. Thus, every Hindu who was expert in his own job had to give up and chose new ways of education, training and jobs.

The Chinese look more disciplined and organized. They have a command economy which means they can order new types of industries to be created and control production. The country is more unified too which can make it move faster with less dissent.

The keyword is 'look'. The Soviet Union too looked 'disciplined' and 'united'. And look what happened.

The caste system is a big problem because it is dividing India and preventing the talent of the whole nation from being used to the maximum. China is by contrast unified and equal. Anyone from any part of China can become whatever he wants.
Scientifically, the origin of the caste system comes from the animal kingdom.

Unfortunately in India animals have always played a central part in peoples lives, culture, religion, thinking and it can be said to be the centre around which Indian people live. Indian gods are animals of various kinds like monkeys, elephants and snakes. Some even worship rats.

So to the Indian mind God must be a animal. Animals have a caste system that is why Indians must also have a caste system. Because god is a animal and he says this is how he made things. It is very hard to change Indian thinking on this, this is why India is so much poorer than China.

Whether this is the reason for the caste system I don't know. But the system is changing although very slowly. For example we see South Indians in North India now, something which was unusual in my grandhathers day.
