    • I completely agree that the japanese dominate the indians as far as economic stability and industralisation are concerned,but I beg to differ on the issue that the Japanese are more hard working..in india one has lesser opportunities and has to work very hard to earn his bread..new ideas dont pass throush the threshold of thoughts because of lack of fundings..as far as the present is concerned ..japan needs india more than india needs japan..Japan needs to establish a strong relationship with india to create pressure on China..or else the chinese will keep bullying them the way they just DID!! and start taking over the land which they rightfully own!!On an economic point of view the Japanese are STUCK since the 1980s..their economy is stagnating and demographic problems will further decatalyse their growth..THE PREVIOUS COMMENT HAS NO REASON NOR PROOF TO SUPPOT IT..at least have some respect for others even if you have none for yourself..Arigato gozaimas..thanks for reading..

      • OH PLEASE INDIA IS A THIRD WORLD SHIT HOLE, and it will remain a third world, street shitting shit hole till the end of time.

        In the future, China is going to use you subhuman pieces of shit as slave labour, and a source of entertainment for being so ugly and smelling like fecal matter just like Blacks were in the US and the west 100 years ago.

        India is nothing more but a third world country waiting to be exploited by China; to be put in zoos so our kids can point and laugh at you disgusting pieces of walking near sentient shits.

        You turd skin having this megalomania of being a superpower is the biggest joke the west has ever conjured up. Face it, Indians are made to be subjected to slavery, and work within the Chinese sewage system in the near future.

        I can’t wait when India’s economy crash and burns as it’s Shitty Indian foul smelling rupee goes up to 100 to 1 USD. Oh the joy it will be to see Indians crying as their economy fall from a trillion to less than 900 billion – smaller than Taiwan. HA. When that day comes, I bet all you hindoooooo nationalists are going to commit senpakku or cry your turdskin eyes out, and stand in line in your putrid shit filled brown cities waiting to find work in Chinese sewage where you will work and live for the rest of your disgusting turd skin lives.

        • keep your racist opinions to yourself you arrogant low life scum!

        • U must be a muslim person or a china person , who want to see hindu’s crying.This is what ur islam teaches it can be seen by ur words..I am a hindu and i still want u muslim people to live properly with all the love u can get through god…just don’t spread hatred..

          • You do realize that India has the 3rd largest population. I agree that this guy is an attention seeking bigoted idiot, but that does not mean he is Muslim or even Chinese.

          • You people just take the names of muslims if anything cruel or bad happens anywhere. Just think if you were a Muslim and then we would blame you and your religion how would you feel. You don’t have the right to blame muslims for each and everything. May be after hearing comments like you many muslims in the world are feeling ashamed and would eventually think to die rather than to hear these racist comments. This racism is brain washing not only muslims but every one in the world to take a revenge from people like you. Than if anything happens you will blame muslims again for this. If anyone here gets sad or heart broken, i am very sorry but you should not blame and criticise muslims for everything

        • Idiot you are…go to hell !!!! Even god won’t accept you!!! You are really shit of shit of shit !!!! We Indians are far better than people like you . You can’t really crack what we are upto.

We are ready to learn good things from you people and always ready to expose our talents. Don’t underestimate the power of an Indian !!

        • Who are you,how do you know about seppuku,since you are not a human..I think I have the right to take up and slit your throat… No I should not kill you but cut every piece of your body except your vitals and enjoy watching you begging for seppuku…that will be better…please do tell me your address…it may not seem like that but I am quite rich and I do know the basic of cutting meats as I am in the hospitality industry for quite a time….so I am eagerly waiting for your answer…I don’t like joke and lies

        • O yeah? Then you should be working in our TOILETS!!!!!!!!

      • we have to respect others means there also respect ourself this is truth

  4. Japan is really very praise deserving country. Although, being an indian I m proud of my country and consider it to be the best nation in the world but its also true that Japan is v.much ahead from India. In almost every favourable aspect, japan prevails over India and the best thing is that inspite of being so much ahead from India, Jpan has never shown ego for its economy and other things. There, people are very respectful and also they heartly respect Indians. So, people who curse Japan, they actually do not know that “WHAT JAPAN ACTUALLY IS!!!”. LOVE YOU INDIA AND JAPAN. ALWAYS WANT TO SEE YOU TO BE VERY GOOD FRIENDS.:-)

  5. Japanese are dominating the indians and japanese have too much ego in their behaviours ………….“WHAT JAPAN ACTUALLY IS!!!”. LOVE YOU INDIA AND JAPAN. ALWAYS WANT TO SEE YOU TO BE VERY GOOD FRIENDS.:-)

  6. I think Japan & India should be as friends…

  7. I am Indian, but I would hop over to Japan the second I get the chance. I love their culture, and rich history. Plus, most of the people there are so much more nicer. I remember when I took a trip to Tokyo, and the people over there were so genuinely nice.
    Here, though….uh, not so much xD

  8. Japan is economically and technologically sound. And family culture still exists in Japan as in India. Also Japanese respect Indians. No one there violate their own rules. Here politicians make India worsen. Heritage sights and shrines are being preserved with much respect. Even General Manager of a company would travel in a passenger train without any ego. No noise in the train.

  9. japan is a great country. it is ahead of india in many ways but that does not mean that we will make cutting remarks about each other.I think japan and India should be friends.

  10. Japanese are worst country than India..they have no ethics.hardworking like slaves but no use .Always eat bloody sushi.Indias are much better in very aspects.japenese live game show is idiotic and they are physco manic people.

  11. I am an Indian. Look Japan is better than our country in every aspects. Clean cities along with beautiful villages, well mannered people, they obey the rules of the country,their government make policies for the welfare of the people. Why they are ahead of us because their view is much different from ours. We should accept the reality. We can learn a lot from them.

  12. U said that Japanese are more hardworking than Indian but it mean that Indian are not hard working. Earlier during foreign invasion Indian had struggled a lot..as much as one cannot think of.
    So differentiate but please don’t say one is good or one is bad country. Everyone has their own specialty.
