SLJ/32 Bridge Building Machine a technological monsters used to build bridges. This machine weighs about 580-tonnes, 91-meters long and 7-meters wide. It transports itself, via its set of 64 wheels, which are split into four sections consisting of 16 wheels each.
Do you know how difficult it is to build tunnels? A few years ago, only Germany and Japan could build machines that could do the job, and China had to remain dependent on other countries for boring tunnels. Not until they decided to build this monster:
Very few countries, not more than 3 or 4, can manufacture these machines. India has to import all TBMs, we don’t have any capacity to build one.
They also have this monster:
Track-laying machine used to build railway tracks. It can do the job, much faster and perfectly.
In manufacturing, research and development, and technology India doesn’t even stand a chance against China. Comparing the two is preposterous. After 69 years of independence, India can’t even manufacture products as simple as earphones.
Comparing the two countries would be a great injustice to China. Most of Chinese people don’t want their country to be compared with India. China think of it below their dignity, the same way we think of Pakistan. They like to compare their country with countries like America and Japan.
