New Delhi [India] July 20 (ANI): A tweet by a Chinese daily on Thursday started Twitter war between Indian, Pakistani and Chinese trolls. As soon as China's largest newspaper People's Daily on Thursday tweeted its story titled 'India looks brighter than China on a map, but really it's not'; Pakistani, Indian, and Chinese started trolling each other with mentions.
@lionsandsachin returned with another tweet to castigate China. "Democracy is always brighter than communist...where u don't give freedom to ur own people...wait for few more years and we will surpass u (sic)." A Chinese @jiahao_lee mocked India by saying, "#Indians don't have a piece of brain and they live in the well without coming out!They can surpass China only by photoshopping (sic)." An Indian @dkv1949 tweeted: "Though economically China is brighter than India but D Dark Patches in China R lack of democracy as compared 2 India which is bright Demorcy (sic)." The People's Daily's reported, "According to the Shanghai based media outlet The Paper, India has more plains than China and is surrounded by seas on three sides, which makes the lights appear brighter. Forty-percent of Indian lands are plain and the mean attitude of the Deccan Plateau is less than 1,000 meters, while China's plains make up 12 percent. More than half of China is made up high-altitude plateaus and mountains, home to about 28 percent of population, which makes the western and northern regions of China seem dim in comparison." It further added: "Actually, the map does not measure the intensity of the lights. But India has more blue and green lights and fewer red and orange lights, the latter of which refer to developed areas." Citing an Indian newspaper's report, People's Daily report said more than 300 million Indians are living without electricity and more than 18,000 villages don't have electricity. American Space Agency NASA in April this year released new global maps of the Earth at night, which showed India looked brighter than China. (ANI)
