First of all we all are HUMANS!!!!!!
Here difference between India & china are geographical, physical, linguistic and administration ( NOTE:- So many answers on cultural difference which i don’t agree)
China is 3 times larger than India. Most of INDIA is in tropical zone whereas china is in temperate zone which makes it cooler than India. ironically India also receive huge snow fall thanks to mighty Himalayas, again ironically Chinese don’t have hot desert climate, so sad that Chinese miss safari nights which Indian’s enjoy:#thar desert:. both countries have sandy beaches, thick forest and LIFE LINE rivers like yangtze & ganga(felling sad to mention that ganga is most polluted river).
I have noticed Chinese males don’t have thick beard like Indian men which makes Indian very manly, whereas Chinese males have soft skin(personal experience)silky hair’s. eye’s formation is also a significant difference.
Entire world know that India is a multi-linguistic country with more than 1600+ registered languages whereas 90% Ethnic HAN Chinese speak only one language which make the business to run smoothly. In India business man cannot expand his business beyond his native language. due to many languages, India has uncountable poet’s, different songs,multiple film industries etc.,which makes India like a RAINBOW NATION.
AS I MENTIONED IN BEGINNING THAT THEIR IS NO CULTURAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INDIA AND CHINA, HERE ARE SOME POINTS TO PROVE MY STATEMENT:
1.Both countries have very strong family values, I mean to say arrange marriages & joint families etc.,
2.Both countries are ANCIENT CIVILIZATION’S and traditional in approach. Though china had cultural revolution by communist party in 1949 but still religion prevail’s in china which can move gears quickly. It seems that Chinese have just paused the religion for development, Chinese can restore it at anytime.
3.Indians gave women a status of goddess(DURGA) Chinese gave women a statues of goddess(Guanyin)
4.India gave YOGA to world china gave MARTIAL ART’S. India gave Ayurvedha to world where as china gave gunpowder. both contributed equally to world
5.Some people are arguing that India is more vibrant than china, my question to you folks is how come china have more UNESCO sites than India? for me it sounds good to say that both countries are equally vibrant.
How come Chinese culture will be different to Indian culture as you know former is inspired by later. AS NOBLE PRIZE NOMINATED AUTHOR “Hu Shih” RIGHTLY MENTIONED.
LONG LIVE INDIA-CHINA RELATIONSHIP, LOVE FROM INDIA TO CHINA

In one line, China is looking for an economic colony and India for an investing colonial master.
China at present has a large amount of surplus capital and decreasing market for its goods. So it is looking out for potential markets for its goods as well as secure investments. It also wants to move up the supply chain and manufacturing where it produces the high value, high end products while the basic and more polluting industries are shifted out of main land China.
India on the other hand is looking for solutions to the rising unemployment and challenges in meeting the rising needs of its population. It is thus looking for investments in the more employment generating industries like manufacturing, tourism and hospitality etc. This is where China is trying to meet the needs of India.
Though this appears normal on the surface, this is exactly the same condition which prevailed during colonial times where the colonies were seen as destination for surplus capital and a market for finished goods.
