Apropos ‘India’s chequered relationship with China (Business Line, October 19), it cannot be ruled out that China’s post-1978 economic development and rapid emergence on the world stage are remarkable. In fact, the growth of China has been fuelled over a long period by large investments in education, technology and health.

It is interesting to note that both India and China have already reaffirmed the need to keep the Line of Actual Control peaceful.

At the same time, the border issue between India and China cannot be taken lightly, and this issue should not come in the way of nurturing ties between the two nations.

To put an end to the border issue, a bit of courage and vision are needed on the part of India and China.

Simultaneously, effective and necessary steps should be taken to foster ties in other areas such as economy, education and technology.

Kejriwal effect

This refers to “ Kejriwal has set the cat among the pigeons (Business Line, October 19)”.

He has made an impact, which has perturbed a lot of politicians in Delhi, as they are not sure what could hit them in future. But politics does not end in Delhi, and the fact of the matter is that Kejriwal’s reach is very limited.

People in remote villages would not know who he is. Kejriwal must not get carried away by the Vadra episode. He needs to establish his credentials over a period of time.
