  1. Important message to every South Asian.

    The best way to compete with China is following its system. Following the West and its system will not help South Asia. Population, Participation and Productivity, the South Asian governments must find a balance among population, participation and productivity. No point in increasing the population in the name of democracy and religious freedom when the country doesn’t have resources to make the people to participate by learning specific skills to get a job, in order to increase the country’s productivity. Increasing population and equipping them with theory based high school education or low standard University qualification will not help the population either. South Asian countries do not have enough resources to equip the increasing population or you are providing out of date education which will not help to get a job to increase the country’s productivity. The best way to deal with the lack of resources is controlling the population while increase the standard of high school and university education.

    South Asia has created billions of people but hasn’t got resources to make them knowledgeable. It has no political will to use the largest human resources as China does. So it has no chance to compete with the West, Russia or China. South Asia does not even have one university ranked within 100 in the world. It hasn’t got a permanent seat in the United Nation’s Security Council. It hasn’t hosted an Olympic Game. It has the largest population as a region, but the leaders have no solution. The leaders don’t have a solution, because the West wants no solution. The political system is making the leaders to go with the flow, in order to keep the votes. They are unable to change anything significantly. South Asia can’t achieve a sustainable development growth, until South Asia stop believing the foreign political system which was introduced by the West to keep South Asia under the Western powers. The Western system will not work unless you have developed your people’s knowledge as the West has done it for the last 700 years. South Asians got tricked by the West and following a useless system. The worse is yet to come for South Asia, especially for India. I would not surprise if India ends up in fighting the west’s proxy war against China. The Americans have the knowledge and power to trick Indians to believe that China created the virus, in order to create a war between India and China to keep the westen dominant power.
