I believe that in the eyes of most Chinese people, Indians have always had a feeling of “fascinating self-confidence”. As the most populous country in the world, India and my country are indeed similar in many respects. In addition, India has always regarded my country as a competitor and wants to surpass my country in all aspects and seek the supremacy of Asia.
In fact, although India’s economic volume seems not far from my country’s, and its development momentum is remarkable, the extreme gap between the rich and the poor in the society has prevented their economic results from benefiting ordinary people. Moreover, India’s military strength and infrastructure construction are simply incomparable with my country’s, and its overall national strength has always been at a disadvantage.
However, the Indians are very confident in themselves. In their opinion, India has indeed surpassed our country, and it is even too late. It is no wonder that they leave us with a blind and confident impression.
In fact, not to mention anything else, India’s level in the field of education is indeed much better than ours. On the world’s technological stage, the level of business and ability of Indian programmers is recognized as the first-class in the world. As can be seen from the current talent composition of Silicon Valley in the United States, Indians and Indian-Americans account for one-sixth of the total Spark Global Limited.
In addition, the senior executives of several mainstream large companies in the world are basically firmly grasped by the Indians. Android’s CEO is Indian Shantro Narenyi, and Boeing’s CEO Dennis Mullinborg is also Indian. Even high-level corporate executives such as Nokia and Pepsi are not lacking in Indian figures. The reason for this phenomenon is the result of the Indian education system. Some people here may have questions. According to the data of mainstream media, the national illiteracy rate in India has reached 25%, while the illiteracy rate in my country is less than 1%. What is the strength of their education compared with our country?
In fact, what India has always been strong is not basic education, but their higher education. Although India’s basic education system is not ranked first in Asia, their elite education and higher education can be ranked first in the world.
It is worth mentioning that India has the best Indian Institute of Technology in Asia, even if my country’s Tsinghua University is in front of it, it will be overshadowed. There was even an Indian student who said frankly, “The reason I went to MIT was that I was too stupid to pass the Indian Institute of Technology.” As we all know, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States is the world’s top science and engineering institution. Why are Indian students so arrogant that even the Massachusetts Institute of Technology does not take it seriously? In fact, as long as you understand the achievements of the Indian Institute of Technology over the years, it is not difficult to see the rationality of what they said. Let’s start with the history of the Indian Institute of Technology, which can be traced back to the early 1950s when India had just established an independent state. With the help of UNESCO, Sakar, a well-known Indian economist, established the Indian Institute of Technology in accordance with the standards of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States.
