                                 cooperative and I know them very
           well. I like Indian style because even though they are a bit
           expensive as compared to Chinese products, they are very
           colourful, made beautifully and are more durable. India and
           China are big exporters to the world and we see Indian
           products in China all the time.   Olivia, China
