The Future Belongs to Chindia

It's not just mobile phones:

Productivity growth will help India sustain over 8% growth until 2020 and become the second largest economy in the world, ahead of the US, by 2050, Goldman Sachs has said, scaling up estimates of the country's prospects in its October 2003 research paper widely known as the BRICs report.

The original report had projected that India's GDP would outstrip Japan's by 2032 and that in 30 years, it would be the world's third largest economy after China and the US. The new report goes one step further by moving India up from No. 3 and No. 2 in the global sweepstakes of tomorrow.

You said it my dear friend, the economies of India and China are on a roll, and is snowballing into a major economic powerhouse. The economic entity CHINDIA has now established itself as a force to reckon with. The Sino-Indian bilateral trade has grown leaps and bounds, and there's only one way to go : FORWARD
