“Great Wall of China”

The Covid-19 fear, Panic, spread and deaths have crippled the total Country and all over the World.
Let us all follow the dictum and directions of our State and Central Government and remain inside our home till the Virus gets eradicated.

Our State and Central Government are doing an exemplary job and with the selfless sacrificial support of all the Doctors, Nurses, Support Staffs, Police and other essential services.

We should also appreciate the fact that, all political parties are united in fighting the virus. The common enemy have made all religious heads to see reason to unite.

Meanwhile, there have been lot of news and videos on social media about China’s intention and how the Virus spread was brought under control and that too it affected only a part of China and rest of China is normal and regular work is on.

Series of events came in to my mind. I have been traveling to China from March/April 1988 for the purpose of sourcing raw material (wet blue leather). Before visiting China I was attending/participating at the APLF (Asia Pacific Leather Fair) at HK.

During this exhibition, I could see that lot of American, European and English Companies have invested and started operations in China for Leather Products and they were looking for good quality finished leathers.

Looking at the number of enquiries on my first visit to HK, though our Company was strong in Germany and UK, I was more than happy.

I requested my company to participate in the next exhibition which was happening at Shenzhen in June, I suppose. Somehow, my inner mind started saying that China will be the future and I should find ways to settle down at HK/China and learn the language.

Incidentally, the organising committee manager at Shenzhen came with a proposal to marry his sister during the Shenzhen Fair as she had fallen in love with me working with me as an interpreter for 4 days during the Shenzhen exhibition.

When I came back and told this news to my Boss, he rejected it totally that China can come up and said that let us concentrate on our European orders as we were running over full. We were producing 20000 pairs of shoes per day during that period and I was the head of operations (South).

Within two years, in 1990, my German Office started saying that Chinese manufacturers make better shoes and much cheaper than India.

Very quickly the first came in the form of pig leather made garments against Goat/Sheep leather garments from India. The whole garment industry was taken aback and orders came down.

The second problem came in 1993, this time all our cotton bags have gone to China as they were cheaper and this was a big business.

In 1994, I could see lot of carriers have developed to move goods from China to India via., HK. They all used to stay at the Chungking Mansion at HK.

Used to get to know from them that they get very cheap products from China and dumping them in to India.
Battery Cell, Small electronic articles, toys, jean trousers and T-Shirts were being carried by these people and they were growing.

In 1996, China entered the shoe market of India and used to send samples free of cost and shipment on CAD basis.

I had a English professor friend from China who could help me to translate during my travel in to China and was looking at Opportunities and used to be surprised at the growth rate and its speed.

I remember a low rung China in 1988 and within the next 8-10 years they have grown unbelievably big with skyscrapers and roads, motor ways and fly overs.

China’s growth was appalling.

In 2002, during my first visit to Iran, I was surprised by the demand for Electric switches of General Electric. Though, my business was only leather & leather products , the enquiries for American products from Iran made me puzzled. Iranians were very strong in their minds to use only American or European products.
The same situation changed in 2008, as the Chinese were there everywhere. They have been able to handle the payment problem with Iran as they were under sanctions through many other routes and hence Iran was comfortable.

In 2002, I have brought in my Chinese professor friend to my home as he was on a business trip to Mumbai for meat purchase. Rather a waste portion of the animal, the ovaries. When he came home he found the God pictures or statutes were there and the lights were hanging above them.

He bought some pics of God’s and went back to China. Next visit of mine he gave me our God’s with self lit pictures. He said why have two situations have the self lit god.

I had an opportunity to visit the Canton fair somewhere in 2005 and was surprised to see that they were selling lungis, Tasbee, as well. By this time, it was clear that they will make anything that can sell in another country.

By 2008, they were in to India selling Krishna on Gokulashtami and crackers for our Diwali. The colourful nature of those crackers and the Krishna moved our people and whole India got flooded.

India by 2010, had already started using everything and anything of China and Indian manufacturers were all dumped. The reason for such problems was shut back as WTO requirement.

Due to my regular visits to Iran and having established my connection with domestic brands there, many people were looking up to me for sourcing support.

There was an order for denim trousers from Iran which was huge and Indian price was double than China. Iranians were comfortable in only working with India and by this time China had made their students to learn at least one foreign language and that eased the business community to travel and further Muslim restaurants and halal food helped the travel.

I was representing a Chinese company to buy raw material from Nepal and during the visit to India, the Chinese Boss was requesting me to arrange Indian technicians for their leather production.
Due to the proximity of India and China, European chemical companies induced Indian technical personnel to go and work and set the process in China and China learnt it the easy way to produce leather and later Brazilians and Italians kept China as their base.

China’s growth around the World was phenomenal and they were traveling to every country and making commercial and business arrangements everywhere. The ease of doing business helped countries like Africa to go behind China.

Unfortunately, having all talent and possibilities of development Indian entrepreneurs did not get enough support from the red tape Government.

Why these technical people left India? Just for making more money and settling abroad where things were felt to be more systematic.

I know a business house trying to break the exodus by paying good salaries and jump, but by this time people have become too selfish and money minded.

Listening to the recent speech by an American senator, he asked the senate house that, their mobile, belts and shoes were coming from other country and their manufacturing is totally lost.

Any American or European Brand is expensive but, you have a Chinese make which is much cheap. No doubt the whole world went behind China and opened their market.

The senator asked that they will not get any medicine as they are totally dependant on China. He also mentioned about the technological advantage and 5G technology and quantum computers already coming in to effective use in China which will make China listen to even the American President talks with his defence personnel.

This is similar situation of East India Company coming and capturing every part of the World in the East.
American President, Donald Trump was an enigma for China as his policies were all anti-Chinese and he wanted duties to be increase on the imports. This affected their trade badly. Similarly, our PM Modi started advocating “make in India”, this further irritated the Chinese. We all realise now the importance of that statement by PM Modi.

The closeness of America and India was not a Welcome situation and China already surrounded India with help of Pakistan, Nepal and Srilanka. Of course their entry in to our North East Province was well protected by our Government.

Now, I leave it your conclusion on what is happening today, Which Countries have stopped working and how is China running. China feared America and India and they know that Europe will support India and hence, totally crippled the operations.

All countries are today dependant on China for even masks and ventilators or testing kits and Medicines.
Every other countries manufacturing units have closed down due to this unfair The Covid-19 fear, Panic, spread and deaths have crippled the total Country and all over the World.

Every other countries manufacturing units have closed down due to this unfair Competition over the last 2 decades from China.

It is still not too late that, we all should first get rid of this virus from our system, use all our intellectual ideas as to how we will handle our strengths and come out stronger after the lockdown period.
China may have moved some smart steps in the early days but, the right intention and good thinking only will win.

“Nadenna seidathu namakku ena kelvigal ketpadhu edarkku. Nee enna seidhai adharku, ena ninaithal nanmai unaku”
These were verses from our Great MGR song.

Rajni says in Basha, Kettavanuku Aandavan kuduthitte iruppan aanal, Kai vittuduvan. Nallavanai Eppodhum Kai vidamattan.

We all are God fearing people may be Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh or any other religion and that is how we are less affected and our Government could act in time.

The America senator said that, while the fight was on in America between the democrats and republics China kept their eyes only on growth.

Same way, let us all unite to first fight the Covid-19 and then prove the World that we are a stronger Country and will come up triumph. over the last 2 decades from China.
