Regarding Dominique Moisi’s Dec. 22 article, “Recognizing confident India as indispensable“: “G3” with India? You have got to be kidding! I mean you only have to look at cities like Beijing and Shanghai, or Xian, Chengdu and Dalian. Mumbai and Delhi are simply incomparable to them.

That’s just part of the story. Security-wise India cannot do anything about regular terror attacks from Pakistan. Nor can it do much about homegrown insurgencies. Cities are congested, dirty, filled with slums, have little infrastructure and show lack of planning, again unlike China.
