Friendly China

Chinese president has proposed five point formula for improving Sino-India relationship. But China is reluctant to solve the border problem with India.
China's perception of border is amazingly beautiful. They "feel" for the people and environment and draw a boundary where the "feel" ends. India has had a boundary problems since independence. Most of the borders have been marked by Britishers. India does not have a feel for boundary like China. Many states adjacent to Pakistan like Gujarat feel Pakistan is acceptable. Some Indians even talk of "Akhand Bharat" which is India and Pakistan together as one country.
I take the China's perception of border very seriously and it is also fearful.
Another thing Chinese president talked about was business relationship. Cooperation in this area is possible. What I envision is, for example, what China makes in steel India need not make sort of cooperation. Also in electricity we can have an international grid from China. This will make the world less polluted as India is mainly coal powered electricity producer.
But these calls for visionary business thinking and what we see today is businessmen like Ruia and all involving in corruption. The business community is shameless and sell their own daughters for money.

China can be an excellent ally to India in business because the two nations seem to be having different strategic business goals. We can compliment each other and help each other. I no longer see a hostile China (towards India) because they too would benefit due to cooperation. The shared electrical grid and buying of electricity is a good idea, but we need to take into consideration the long-distance transportation losses. It will be better if China can make inexpensive solar panels and break into the Indian market because we can make our own electricity that way.

India is a slow starter. Policies are slow, Destination Infinity.
