Abstract

There are two nations on this planet with a billion plus population. While one of them is a sporting power house the other is a ‘leader’ at the rear end! Both countries were at an interesting cusp in the middle of the 20th century; defining moments of 1949 and the end of the civil war established the People’s Republic in China and in 1947 there was freedom from 200 years of British rule for India leading to the establishment of a Democratic Republic. Then China went the Maoist Communist way and India took the Democratic Socialist path. At this time, the two countries were more or less equal on various indices, sporting or otherwise; in fact, facts point out that India had the edge over China in many respects and given that China was ‘closed’ for the world they did not even have the exposure that India had in the international arena.
