India second fiddle to the powerful Chinese and Pakistan the riddler in between
In the context of the emerging economy situation, it is evident that there is a huge gap in the race between China and India as far as grasping power of the Asian affairs are concerned. China looks to be way ahead than India taking a powerful role in Asia.
On the other hand, China's biggest competitor in the Asian market, India
is still learning the tricks of economy and emerging from other problems like crumbling rupee value against dollar in open forex market. Hence, it is clear that India
is the second fiddle to the powerful Chinese.
Now, in the context of other important nation, which is very vital for both China and India is Pakistan, as it seems to be a sort of a riddler in the Asian context. China will have sympathies towards Pakistan, as it makes for a good buffer state and contingency plan to keep India at bay with the sheer use of the clever surrounding strategy.
As to India, Pakistan has always been the riddle with their double game tactics to which India has always been forced, mostly by circumstances to keep calm and keep the doors of diplomacy open. India has remained mostly calm hoping for peace, despite bleeding internally on many major and minor occasions with the advent of Pakistan's so called insurgency support or courtesy religious based militancy and terrorism.
I am looking at the context of the greater subcontinent, therefore these three countries are vital and intertwined on several issues, which will play an important role in the future. In the larger context, it can be said that China is the Batman, India is the Robin and Pakistan is the riddler of Asia.
