    No one knows what the definition of "undermines national security" is under the new law.

Also we can teach you how to swim (some Aussie Olympians just opened up a swimming academy in Mumbai). Just send your international students to our universities, and then we can both give the middle finger to the Chinese.
    Upcoming cricket series from Oct-20 to Jan-21 (If possible) will be a good start, occasional display of affection, bit of commeraderie and less sledging while passions are running high will go long way..

    BTW, while we are on tiktok, this explosive opening batsman is already a superstar in India..

    Surely the pain will be greater in China?

    No, not because of Indian sanctions.

    China only has Wechat to chat to the outside world. Chinese FDI in India will be affected but so will basic trading functions

    This is quite some trolling going on here.

    Personally I use WeChat and AlipayHK which are probably the two most invasive apps.

    Thinking of uninstalling but I currently use them for more credit card rewards.

    None -- no apps that comes from China. In fact, I try to avoid everything "Made in China".

    I just use WhatsApp and then Instagram if I feel like I should "socialize" more in the virtual world.

    That TikTok fever never infected me - perhaps, maybe I'm too old for that? ( on my 28th year of existence) or perhaps, due to my "sentiments " against China - I can't decide.
