A Comparison of Economics Indicators

India and China are the most populous countries of the world. Since China has arrested its population growth it seems that their populations will match one another in a few years. In India many of us tend to compare the two and say that India will beat China in a few years. This may be day dreaming.

China has been relentlessly progressing and has become number two economically in the world just behind US although disparities are huge. How do China and India compare in some economic indicators??
