Easy, Mekky. The fact is each and every project were discussed and investigated by different authorities. But at last one decision has to be made right? The diference between China and India is that in China the authority think more of the majorities and the future. In India, they have to care for all parties and focus on the present.

Enjoy the bridges

I don't think these bridges have anything to do with India. But you brought this thing up and attack China. The only reason I can find for this is jealousy, since India does not have many bridges of this kind.

The bridges are built because ppl need them. This is very obvious, because China's economy is booming.

So I guess in democratic countries like in the US, before they build every project, they ask the population it's nice or not, right? Also, before every war they wage, they also ask the population if it's nice or not, it its costs a lot or not...

Usually losers manifest themselves by showing ignorance, which is caused by ill-educated, or not educated at all.

Businessweek just had an article about labor conditions in China but mentioned that India has 65 million, literal not figurative, slaves. You don't have 65 million slaves and call that a democracy. Unless you want to convince the world those slaves voted themselves into slavery. So it must be all right then.

I love the spin. If Indians are so satisfied with what their "democracy" has to offer, then why would the envious have to come in here and try to bring their stink. Envy is the right term. Progress versus no progress. Only liars can make getting no where out to be something spectacular.

If I'm not wrong, US hold this title now. A bridge in Indiana, US (forgot the name) is 30km+ long.

But it is not the longest bridge span. The Sutong bridge in Jiangsu province China will be the longest span and tallest bridge in the world. please check the previous post for the details.

More pictures are coming!

Before dissing India at least be sure that the forumer is Indian or not. India is not disrupting this thread, this forumer is.

Stop being so gullible to trolls man.

Hence, the nationalistic thread title should better read: CHINA - NATION of MEGA Copies!

And to adequately reflect the fact that the PRC is perhaps the greatest copyright violator of all time: CHINA - NATION of MEGA Copyright Violations!
