XIASIMA, TIBET: India might be suffering USD 47 billion trade deficit with China, but it is making a big splash in this border town with several shops using 'Made in India' sign boards and traders cashing on border trade through the Nathu La pass.

Many shopkeepers in this small town in the centre of Tibet, who import Indian handicrafts, spices and textiles, use sign boards highlighting 'Made in India goods available'.

There had better be another equal sized jet engine on the other side of that elephant or
there is no chance those two will every take off successfully.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

The writer says " Many shopkeepers in this small town in the centre of Tibet..."
A little correction is needed here. Xiasima is in fact a border town located in south Tibet, close to the 14,000 ft Nathula Pass that forms a part of the boundary between China and India. Given the size of the population, the value of Indian goods sold here could only be a drop of water compared to her US$ 47 billion trade deficit.
