Interesting collection of various TED Talk, discussions and News debates about world’s top two most populated countries India and China (also referred as Chindia). Although, both countries have over 1 billion population and ancient roots; but they are very different from each other in terms of Politics, Demography, Culture, Race, Languages, Religion/Faith, Mindset, Landscapes/Soil, Climate, History and Heritage. Overall China is more homogeneous and India is very Diverse in all aspects. One thing is probably common that both countries are trying to acquire their lost ancient glory! See how India and China were World’s top 2 countries in terms of GDP till 1950 here. Also, see Indian History in brief from stone age till now (here) and China Civilization in brief (here).
Hope both will adopt Inclusive and Sustainable growth approach for future and will not just focus on high GDP or per Capita Income model (read ‘Rat Race’)!

Be it a career, further education goals, high income lifestyle, inflation, independence or search of true love, women in China and India are postponing wedding bells! But, it doesn’t come easy as there are parental pressure, social pressure and social stigma attached to woman who wishes to marry late. Surprisingly, in China, if girl is single and 27 years or above, she is labelled as “Leftover Woman”. What is the real reason? Why so many women are choosing to marry late? Economic boom or Inflation is to blame? Watch this interesting discussion in Al Jazeera English News show.
