Associate professor at China University of Political Science and Law
I went to India twice in 2013 as a tourist and to attend an international seminar, and got to see New Delhi, Jaipur and Agra.
My favorite thing about India is their amazing food—especially curry. For 10 days straight, I ate nothing but rice and tandoori chicken. Apart from the spicy food, China and India have other differences, like the caste system, gender disparity, and a wide gap between rich and poor. Gorgeous downtown and luxury hotels are surrounded by slums in Indian cities. Children of rich families have better opportunities to enjoy higher education.
Unlike China, religion plays an important role in the daily lives of Indian people and shapes their perspective on life.
In my opinion, China and India should strengthen cooperation on higher education to better promote mutual understanding.
