The narrative which speaks of India and China leading global growth in the long term, consistent with the ‘Asian Century’ trend which suggests the increasing dominance of Asian economies in economic affairs over the 21st Century, has been widely voiced. Nonetheless, inherent differences are present between the two countries, especially when looking through the lens of their cities, with China’s major urban areas displaying features which at times are almost analogous with developed world regions, though the same cannot be said about key cities in India, some of which are ravaged in poverty.
