Here's why China's One Belt, One Road is Going to Succeed

One Belt, One Road (OBOR) ,China’s ambitious initiative unveiled in 2013 is very near to its success. It consists of two plans combined to form a larger framework of new trade routes.
The first of these is One Belt (the orange line in the above map). It refers to the development of new infrastructure—particularly railroads and highways—to connect China’s interior provinces with world by way of Pakistan ,Russia, Central Asia, and the Middle East.
It’s a tall order, and expectations are taller that China would be able to build them.
The bigger issue with One Belt was geopolitical. Eurasia is in a state of crisis and this One Belt One Road will not only boost Eurasia's economy but will also benefit other regions. Central Asia in particular is one of the world’s most politically unstable places. The region is a patchwork of states whose borders were drawn to make the countries more easily controlled from Moscow during the Soviet era.It would become a promising market for Chinese goods. The Project will stabilize the Central Asian region. The political leadership of Central Asia has already realized the fact.
The other trade route is One Road. It’s essentially a new Maritime Silk Road.
This part of the plan is meant to create more Chinese ports in countries along maritime routes. Which makes sense: About 80% of global trade by volume and over 70% of global trade by value is conducted by sea, according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.
So far, One Road has been a full bag for China. It has secured contracts to build ports in Myanmar and Sri Lanka, Pakistan but a deal with Bangladesh fell through in 2016 when Dhaka opted for an offer from Japan instead. It is not a greater concern for China. It will be able to use that port constructed by japan in Bangladesh.
From a US perspective, China’s projects along the Maritime Silk Road are overblown. It is a misconception of US and a ignominious propaganda against this grand project. Constructing ports is not meant for permanent bases for Chinese armies.The countries in question have almost agreed to host them.
More important to remember here is that the Chinese navy is capable of extended, long-term deployments in countries far from the mainland.
In short, OBOR matters relatively Greater.
The initiative itself is well-defined and has done very much for China since it was announced. Even if it fails ,OBOR would swing the global balance of power. OBOR is to be truly trans-formative, it will have to do what it was meant to do: right the wrong of the Chinese economy and balance of power. At the very beginning It has achieved much success . Country after country is tilting towards China. World has understood the crooked global politics of the past. It is Chine only that is going to save the world from economic and political exploitation of the West and US.

Why Afghanistan is playing second fiddle to India and America?

Why Afghanistan is playing second fiddle to India and America? is a million dollars question . Those who are aware of the political situation and world affairs may guess it well. The world is changing and shifting its balance of power . The uni polar world will be no more in near future. Russia is rising and its evidence was the interference in American election.China on the other hand is shunning its fear of America.

The west is on pins due to this influence of China in world affairs. Pakistan is tilting towards China . India has been shunned by Russia due to too much influence of Aamerica in Indian policy making. So those who are against the Chinese progress cannot see her prosperring and expanding its influence. India,America,Iran and Israel has made a cartel against China and Pakistan. 

Indian PM Modi-An extremist Hindu

Born to a Gujarati OBC family in Vadnagar, Modi helped his father sell tea as a child, and later ran his own stall. He was introduced to the right-wing Hindu nationalist organisation Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh at the age of eight, beginning a long association with the organisation. He left home after graduating from school, partly because of an arranged marriage which he rejected. Modi traveled around India for two years, and visited a number of religious centres. He returned to Gujarat and moved to Ahmedabad in 1969 or 1970. In 1971 he became a full-time worker for the RSS. During the state of emergency imposed across the country in 1975, Modi was forced to go into hiding. The RSS assigned him to the BJP in 1985, and he held several positions within the party hierarchy until 2001, rising to the rank of general secretary.
His administration has been seen as complicit in the 2002 Gujarat riots, or otherwise criticized for its handling of it, although a court found no evidence to prosec…

World With Donald Trump

American Elections resulted in Donald Trump's victory and led him to the White House. Though there are many controversies after the election results, yet it would not hamper Donald to take his seat in the office. His victory was a method in madness. His inauguration as the President of America will change the world scenario. There are two main theories related to his Presidency as put forward by me.  1-World would see a conflagration which would be a world war.  2. America will again resume its seclusion policy to stabilize it shattering economy. 1- The Third World War It is not mere estimated thought but situation on the ground leads us towards the third world war.The America is going to be secluded by the West, I mean EuropeanUnion. It will not be feasible for America. More over Chinese influence in the world affairs has increased manifold. In order to contain China America will do every aggressive act wherever China in involved. It will try its best to oust China from the world aff…
