Startups with investment from China by Chinese investors are posing a serious threat to sovereignty & national security like China Products.

Draining out  Indian money to China.

Data security and sensitive personal information of Indians at risk.

Threat to sovereignty & national security like China Products

Exploit Indian talent from IITs, IIMs to extract money from India to China

Indian founders in chinese funded startups are ultimately reduced to minority stakeholding/shareholding/ownership and are finally forced to resign or bought out or kicked out on various reasons. For example how flikpart founder was expelled out of flipkart by wallmart investors in flipkart.

The Indian founders have little or no say in major policy decisions of the company without approval from board member appointed by Chinese investors in Board of Directors of the company.

Chinese funded startups weaken Indian economy and strengthen Chinese economy by funneling money out of India.

Paytm-the biggest beneficiary of demonetization, is benefitting Chinese investors like Alibaba, Tencent etc.

Online classes edtech startups are biggest beneficiaries in covid-19 emergency. eg. Byju’s, Vedantu, Unacademy etc. However, indirectly these edtech startups are benefitting China on account of Chinese investment in these startups.

China funded startups will become another big headache for the country just like china products. Just like, entire country wants to boycott China products immediately but is finding it difficult to boycott China products. In the same way, the Chinese funded startups will become so difficult to boycott if we do not boycott such startups now.

China launches Cyber attacks on India. Safety of public data in Chinese funded startups

China has launched cyber attacks on India after killing 20 Indian soldiers. Chinese Cyber attacks on Indian banks, government websites and public utility websites need to be tackled carefully. Safety of public data in Chinese funded startups is also an issue of concern that needs to be taken care of by public.

When it comes to technology start-ups, Indian firms have the Chinese as their godfather. China, the ultimate ruler of technology has our nation literally in its hands. it may seem practically impossible right now but the reality is that the Chinese own major part of the Indian start-ups.

Since the onset of the virus, there has been a major change in the Indian education sector. Students have shifted to online education and apps like Byjus are a total hit right now. But the biggest factor here is that byjus has a major role of the investors from outside India. For example, China’s Tencent Holdings Ltd has a significant holding value in Byju’s online education application which is being used by majority of the students right now. Not only Byju’s, many other education start ups in India also have high level of Chinese investment including from Chinese Tencent. Some examples in this segment are Vedantu, Unacademy, Toppr etc.

There are two major players who are running the Indian start-up scenario. One is Alibaba and the other one is Tencent. There have been a few issues associated with this. Data leakage is a major issue with comes with the investments that the Chinese make in the Indian companies. In 2016, questions were raised on Paytm about the data security of the users to which the spokesperson said that Alibaba has a stake in Paytm but it is originally an Indian entity only. Even if there have been privacy issues and data breach issues, there have been times when the companies have stepped forward and have told that the data isn’t shared. But the fact is that we are so spellbound and tech-savvy, all our data is actually with someone. From the most sensitive information to the most useless one. We are all under someone. And guess what? It would have been better if we were under our own domestic people. But the reality is that there are extremely less fully-owned domestic firms.

A report published by the Gateway House, a think tank associated with the Indian Council on Global Relations, estimates Chinese technology investment of $ 4 billion in Indian startups. Among India’s top 30 unicorns (startups worth over $1 billion), 18 are Chinese funded and technology-driven.

The report, published in February, lists 92 major startups funded by China. According to a February 2020 report by think tank Gateway House, 18 of India’s 30 unicorns are Chinese-funded.

Apart from Swiggy and Zomato, the other unicorns that have attracted Chinese funding over the years include Ola (Tencent, Sailing Capital), Flipkart (Tencent, TR Capital), Paytm (Alibaba), BYJU’S (Tencent), Delhivery (Fosun Group), among others. Start ups may face trouble in short term but national security is of utmost importance and safety of sensitive public data is of utmost priority.

Immediate response to China’s attack on India : Boycotting Chinese products and adopting Swadeshi

video credit: Dr. R. Singh Director Teaching Care – Online Classes

Indian Army needs help of its citizens. Citizens must immediately start boycotting Chinese goods and start adopting swadeshi. China earns billions of dollars from India to attack India on all sides. In north India from Laddakh to Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh. In south, in Indian ocean. China provoked Nepal. China Made highway in POK. Its all about to attack India from all sides. If we do not start immediately boycotting Chinese products, Chinese army will keep on attacking India and India soldiers. Just Like Akshai Chin, China will also encroach Laddakh, if citizens of India do not immediately boycott Chinese products and start adopting swadeshi. Jai Hind.

How Chinese Rule Indian Startups And Control Our Economy

When it comes to technology start-ups, Indian firms have the Chinese as their godfather.

China, the ultimate ruler of technology has our nation literally in its hands. it may seem practically impossible right now but the reality is that the Chinese own major part of the Indian start-ups.

Since the onset of the virus, there has been a major change in the Indian education sector. Students have shifted to online education and apps like Byjus are a total hit right now. But the biggest factor here is that byjus has a major role of the investors from outside India. For example, China’s Tencent Holdings Ltd has a significant holding value in Byju’s online education application which is being used by majority of the students right now.

Not only Byju’s, many other education start ups in India also have high level of Chinese investment including from Chinese Tencent. Some examples in this segment are Vedantu, Unacademy, Toppr etc.

Some major Indian Start-ups and their Chinese Investors are summarised in the picture below.

There are two major players who are running the Indian start-up scenario. One is Alibaba and the other one is Tencent.

The major reason for all these investments is that the Chinese follow the model of- plus one. This model basically means that shifting or expanding operations out of China to benefit from cheaper labour, new markets, and less domestic vulnerability.

There have been a few issues associated with this. Data leakage is a major issue with comes with the investments that the Chinese make in the Indian companies. In 2016, questions were raised on Paytm about the data security of the users to which the spokesperson said that Alibaba has a stake in Paytm but it is originally an Indian entity only. Even if there have been privacy issues and data breach issues, there have been times when the companies have stepped forward and have told that the data isn’t shared. But the fact is that we are so spellbound and tech-savvy, all our data is actually with someone. From the most sensitive information to the most useless one. We are all under someone. And guess what? It would have been better if we were under our own domestic people. But the reality is that there are extremely less fully-owned domestic firms.

All these investments come with a positive and a negative. But one thing is for sure, we aren’t India anymore, we are ultimately under someone who is running everything in our country.

Schools and coaching institutes switched over from offline to online classes but did not get rid off same size fits all approach

How personalised 1 to 1 classes is key to effective learning

Online Classes by Schools and Coaching Institutes still suffer from one size fits all approach.

Due to covid-19, schools and coaching institutes switched over from offline to online classes in order to survive their business but did not update themselves nor did anything to get rid off the same old method of teaching wherein same size fits all approach is still followed. It has further made learning an uncomfortable experience for students as online group classes have added more problems for students such as reduced interaction between student and teacher; audio interruptions due to poor networks, unavailability of devices etc.

Personalized 1 to 1 teaching is the key ensure to effective learning in the current online education scenario which suddenly enforced online group classes on teachers who were never trained for taking online classes. The result is that parents have started complaining to schools as parents are monitoring their kid’s classes and happen to see various lacuna in online classes ranging from methods of teaching, quality of teaching, interaction of teacher with students, pronunciation, behavior, unnecessary overly assignments & activities, lack of focus on basic concepts etc

Schools do not clear basic fundamental concepts, hence, students need to take coaching to clear any competitive exam whether it is engineering, medicine, banking, SSC, CDS, IAS or so on.

And because colleges do not cater to education in the way it should be dealt in, that’s why 80% Indian engineers, many doctors and most graduates and post graduates do not get jobs in the job market.

It’s failure of school education system that leads to existence of multi-billion coaching industry in India.

Despite existence of such a big coaching industry, job industry is struggling to find right talent and skills in the candidates for the jobs in its job market.

And why should the government bother for education reforms as parents too feel helpless rather than raising their voice against failed school education system and lack of connect between curriculum and industry requirements.
