Mathematically you're correct this time but.....

India started as early as 1989/1990 - after collapse of communism in Europe and the disappearance of the former USSR. This was the time whe ...


Mr.Satsu Jin 1990 doesn't start the original reforms. The reform activities done never reached to the grass roots. The only reformed ones were banking sector and the economy grew higher because of a slight increase in FDI in what seems to be a conservative , isolated, closed economy. The FDI weren't great but a slight increase propelled growth. Further Dr.Singh's proposed plan was not even implemented because Rao's cabinet was voted out in 1996. It was Mr.Vajpayee who initiated the plan before his government fell and rose again and the Planning commission only formally accepted in 1998. And the first effects of the plan were not felt until its 2001.

On the other hand Mr.Deng's plan was in full swing from 1978. He was revampling beurocracy make the government body suitable to attract FDI. Shenzhen was formed in 1980, this well conceived plan would certainly have took more than 2 years to form. You can't fell the effects of reforms simultaneously Satsu_Jin it would take 2 to 4 years to feel the plan but it doesn't mean that the action behind the screen were slow.

China's new high-speed trains are all made in China.

Does India have any?


India don't have the need to go for high speed train. Its infrastructure would grow in pace with economy. Look at Egypt how the country had an infrastructure that has nothing to do with an agricultural economy. India is following different technique, in only the need for keeping the costs cheap you have to upgrade infrastructure every now and then.
