India and China were the biggest and the best friends centuries ago (India's influence spread through Buddhism and mathematics in China). Why should not they forget their misunderstandings in the past? Why cant these giants work together for a common cause of world peace? Together they represent almost 40% of humanity in the world ! The chance is now to unite together and make this an "Asian Century" Hail India-China friendship ! Naveen Raju, India
