...Made in India There are about 65 million scooter owners in India. Families are forced to pile onto scooters, or make several trips to commute. Clearly, this is not an ideal form of transportation for most people. However, the low income in India has prohibited individuals from purchasing a vehicle than can cost more than $10,000. Is India’s Tata Motors new four-door, four-seat, rear-engine car for $2,500 a good alternative plan for transportation in India? In an article, “No, No, No, Don’t Follow Us,” Thomas L. Friedman, who became the New York Times foreign affairs columnist in 1995, reporting on international issues like the Middle East conflict, U.S. domestic politics and foreign policy, and international economics, claims that this $2,500 Tata Motors car is not a good alternative because India’s infrastructure cannot handle the added traffic or pollution that these vehicles will cause. After receiving a degree in Mediterranean studies and a master's degree in modern Middle East studies, he began writing for The New York Times in 1981 (“Columnist Biography: Thomas L. Friedman”). Currently, Friedman writes the foreign affairs column twice a week for the New York Times. In his Op-ed article “No, No, No, Don’t Follow Us,” he stated that the inexpensive Tata Motors car would not be good for India.

China is posing a threat to India
A look at the history of politics and, one would see disturbed relations between India and China. Since, the war of 1962 China has always been a source of tension for India. India has always tried to build healthy relations with China.
Despite a disturbed past, China and India have healthy economic and mutual beneficial relations. The trade and business activities across the border are necessary for the economic growth of both countries.
But, the growth rate of both countries are complete different. Where India stands today, China stood around five years back. China, in spite of being the country with the largest population, is one of the fastest growing economies.
It is the second largest exported in the world and, the third largest importer in the world. Businesses in China are all class driven and, you would find that Chinese are in demand everywhere in the world.
Definitely, China is a potential threat to India given the kind of economy and nuclear weapons it possesses. The nuclear state title that China has received because of the powerful weapons under its possession has made China a super power.
At present, India possesses a chaotic government that has lost the ability to deal with the internal matters. They are more worried about the superficial matters that would not help India develop in any manner. Even with their full power of weapons and, a good standing army, China possesses a danger to our borders.
Otherwise a very non-violent country, India has recently posted close to 60000 troops along the Chinese border. Chinese have recently developed an interest to the eastern part of India, especially Arunachal border. India does not wish to repeat the 1962 moment where the reason was the much disputed Himalayan border. So, in order to protect its borders from Chinese invasions, India has taken steps beforehand.
China is an emerging superpower whose bureaucrats are busy thinking of ways to grow and prosper. At such times, it is possible that they might want to invade and conquer.
Recent intrusion and then retreat by China from Indian Territory is glaring examples. Given these facts, China is a possible threat to India.
