Can India stop China from becoming a superpower?（3）

China reasonably outsmart India in various domains which includes industrial, agriculture, infrastructure, technological areas which constitutes whole of the countries GDP statistics , apparently China leading by a large margin standing firm at second most influential economic engine of the world . So it's highly inappropriate to compare India at present, standing way behind China interms of average growth rate and GDP.
India, on the other hand is a developing country at a rapid pace for the past 10 years which entitles India as the fastest one of growing economy in accordance with China.
India emphasises cultural values , hereditary , historical monuments with rich multi ethnic traditional pride corresponding to their counterpart China's rich traditional history.
India's economy gained traction after 1991 with unprecedented growth and improvements in various sectors like infrastructure , textiles , Food, shipping, agriculture which embarked substantial positive impact in GDP.
Stable financial and consistent economic policies led to decent banking system and remarkable NBFC organisations, transportations and logistics upliftment partnering with European and US firms have led to massive development in encompassing supply chain of diversified bussiness verticals , imports and exports is always a profitable venture in India's success in global markets , the IT& IT enabled service industry is a ultimate game changer which contributed loads to wealth creation among corporates and bussiness tycoons lead to the potential revenue generation to the government via the direct taxes and trade. overall these cumulative factors contributed to the nation building with job creation in these sectors accordingly.
India constitutes 65% of the population below the age of 35 which is an huge boost for the future prosperity and flourishment of the country whereas, China in contrary have priorities and regulations in terms of population control perhaps it contains equal amount of people from various age groups is certainly a drawback and restrain to their sustained development model.
India incorporates with multiple developed countries especially the western countries in terms of bilateral agreements, bussiness interests, investments , artificial intelligence at present . with affable relationship among the consortium of heavyweights almost leading most of the countries espouse India as a trusted ally excluding very few.
Looking at the current scenario China is absolute in terms of other Asian countries like Japan and India but in a matter of a decades India is fast approaching in competence alongside China with economy improving at rapid pace beside mild on and off sluggishness due to the volatile global market..But, overall optimism is highly palpable and India is assured to forsee itself as the more powerful asian country in terms of GDP and second-most ranked world leader by 2030 ..

No, India can't stop China from becoming a supepower. Even Americans can't stop a peaceful rise of China. Only China can stop itself from becoming a superpower.
India may be a weaker power but it is still no 4 behind China in latest Global Firepower Ranking. In case of a conflict, the story of both China and India would be over. However we hate each other, India & China are neighbors and we must live peacefully.

Yes, you can ! But do you really have to stop China from becoming a superpower , which China do not want to be anyway ?
Given that the Chinese have had already demonstrated their maritime might , all over South East Asia, Middle East and Africa, through various dynasties, through the Silk Roads and Sea Routes , from the Tang until the Ming dynasties, without setting up a single military garrison, you can rest assured that the Chinese, like myself, do not want China to be a superpower. Yes , we have had excelled our cultural influences on these countries, like the Indian Buhdism has expanded to the world. Conquering, enslavement, genocide like the European settlers? No. We do not believe the Abrahamic religions, namely Judaism, Christianity, Islam that advocate One Freking True God that everyone has to be subjected to. That's the difference.

You don't. Instead we should strive to become a super power ourselves. If we are strong enough China has no option other than to be an ally. Our biggest problem is that we don't like economic reforms as it disrupts our daily life (comfort zone) and we don't want to pay taxes because we firmly believe it all goes to politicians pockets. We are busy fighting among ourselves about which religion is great or which language is great and our own media fuels it for TRP. So there's nothing we can do to stop China because we can defend ourselves from external threats only after we stop beating ourselves.

Even in its almost 5000 years of history, India has never invaded another nation’s territory. India and China are neighbors and as an Indian i don’t think there’s a reason for us to stop any country form becoming superpower. I guess it’s high time for both India and China to sit around a table and sort their differences out. So that 2 great nations of the world can join hands together and help each other out for the betterment of their people and the country as a whole.
Just imagine what would happen if China and India join their hands together. Instead of looking to the west, i guess we should give more focus to be in cooperation with our neighbors. China should also consider giving support to India in its entry into international organisations like NSG and all.
I hope that SCO and BRICS will help to melt the ice between the two great nations of the world.
I don’t know why this question’s even asked, but as an Indian I am saying that no true Indian will ever wish to deter China’s (or any nation’s) progress or to destroy it.

All the afore mentioned answers might have given you a clearer idea that China's rise as a SUPERPOWER is Inevitable.
But I would like to share some light on what a patriot like you and me can do about it.
Answer: Make India a superpower
This might not sound shockingly absurd to fellow quorans who follow SouthAsian power tussle between India and China.
Question: How do we make India a Superpower?
Answer: Let the Government of India worry about our defence procurements, Naval bases and International affairs with West and in SouthEast Asia. The only terms on which India can compete with China is it's economic might. And that is what we have to worry about right now. But then how and what can we do you may ask. I say,
Use India's Demographic dividend :-
Almost half the number of people on earth live in either of the two countries. Ever wondered how did a country like China who got it's self-rule in 1949 (and that's two years after India's independence) manage to emerge as an exceptional competitor in the Superpower race? That is because they knew they had a Huge workforce and needed to create sufficient number of jobs.
Now, India has 65% population in working age group. The average age of India is around 27 years and so this makes India a young nation that is capable of becoming a Superpower.
The only problem dragging India behind is there aren't Sufficient jobs available. The only Sectors in India that provide some jobs are government sector and some Giants in private & service sector like the TATA, Infosys and rest of the BPOs you see in cities. Rest 90% people in India who do have a job come from the Informal sector.
So you see, you and I have to become Job givers instead of Job seekers. Now that's a responsibility upon our shoulders who happen to dream of India as a Superpower.
The current regime in India is striving hard to create jobs in the country. NDA government has taken many initiatives to give a boost to job growth.
Make in India, Startup India, Standup India, Global Entrepreneurship Summit and so on.
The recent visit of our PM to World Economic Forum was regarding the foreign investment in India which might improve the situation here. Now that is why the rank upgrade of India in ease of doing business rankings matters to us.
Now all being said, India needs to boost the Manufacturing sector to create more number of jobs that could eventually boost the economy. All we have to do is to create jobs for our fellows here in India. Would you help us with this? We would really appreciate that.

Instead of looking for ways to stop a country from rising or becoming a superpower, I think it is more productive to look for ways to improve your own country, or any country, for that matter. Study how China became a superpower and learn from that. Continue to improve the economy and opportunities for the people living in your country. Improve your country’s military capabilities to include better equipment and training, in particular, the air force and intelligence. Improve and develop new missile technologies as a deterrent and keep India’s nuclear arms in top shape. I believe India will become a superpower one day and the best way to “stop” a country is by becoming a superpower or being the best yourself.

We Don't Need To Do So, Either It's China,USA or Anyone Else .It Doesn't Matters Much To A Local Indian.
Yes,If India Will Be Superpower & Will Be Sooner Than Anyone Thought,Makes Us Much Happier Than Stopping Someone Else.
India Is Always Known For Its Development Assistant For Other Countries Even Being A Developing Nation.
We Indians Are By Nature Soft & Sensitive Toward Others & Never Intended To Rule Others.Infact India As A Nation Never Attacked In It's Glorious History Of Thousand Of Years.
We As A Nation Should Just Attempt To Regain It's Lost Glorious Past & Then Only We Could Fulfill Our True AIM Of "Vasudhaiwa Kutumbukam" By Serving Other Nations & Eastablishing A World Based On Humanitarian Values Not On Military & Economic Power.
John, studied at Self Taught School of Hard Knocks and Common Sense
Your country should not try to stop China from being a superpower, but should focus on improving the life of their own people, in an economic sense, not military. Concentrate on educating your people to compete on a world stage, and encourage them to open a buisness in India. Try to improve the living standards for your people improve education standards. Encourage more national pride.

Stop these kind of racist questions first of all fellow Indians. you can not be great by hating neighbours. We had reasons to fight, not hate. China achieved all the prowess with the huge cost. Chinese faced strained social condition almost for half centuries. They lost in crores for their leader’s mistake. Let her glows as per her hard work. We are not here to dictate until we are forced to be dictated. Let us start to learn fight instead of hate. She brought down the poverty, so do we. She increased the urbanization so we have to. Super power is about to control trade routes mainly, China has some of them, not all. Her geography won’t support it. So if she wanted to be she has to collaborate with her neighbour India. So please stop funny racist questions like these for the sake of India at least
India has never nor will stop any country from becoming a superpower because it’s democracy, and certainly not run by the CCP!
Indian government and citizens don’t believe in the idea that if any country consider us their enemy, w should think the same of them.
Since India won’t even try, India will not stop China from becoming a superpower. In fact, on the contrary, China has been trying hard to stop India and Japan to become a superpower.

You cannot stop it. You should not even think of it. India should empower themselves to be more productive & prosperous nation by learning from China or any other nation, if need be. Get along with all nations including Pakistan & China. International trade & commerce with good intentions & good management is the right & positive step. Empower men & women, rich & poor of the country.
Indians should work smart, hard, control their population, get rid of corruption, laziness & bad habits like, rapes, sabotaging China or any other nation etc. It is very unproductive & will lead to failure.
Nobody can stop China, not even the US. That is the destiny.
why do you want to stop china man? pakistan has been trying to stop india’s rise for 70 years has it been successful ?
chinese people after being defeated , colonized, humiliated just like india for centuries have worked hard to reach at this stage , we as indians should learn from them . there should be more things common between us and it would be mighty stupid of us to indulge in a futile attempt of stopping china from becoming super power .
it is in india and china’s destiny to rise and no country can stop it i would like the two sit down and solve there differences and not let the fate of 2.8 billion people in the hands of some stupid ultra nationalists
