If at all there's one opportunity to turbocharge India's economy to 15% growth trajectory (remember China had a decade of 20% + growth rate, so 15% growth rate for India's economy is not totally un-unviable) it is by cutting off trade with China and suffer for 2-3 years and then grow at 15%-20%.

China is desperate to bring India into the OBOR/BRI fold. They know that only hope of recovering any dues from this ponzi scheme is by bringing India in. OBOR is toast without India. India would do well to not touch with it. We can definitely use it after the collapse of china
