    China and India both doing exceptionally well. But I think China has much interest about international matters than India.

    It is possible...but i will say this is going to be truth, since we are seeing that china is growing its economic well and increasing day by day so it is not too far that they may be the next powerful nation in the world.

    Yes, they are the most powerful country next to no one. But I don't know if it will last because of some of the policies they are putting into place. I believe China is beginning to demand certain things from other nations that are becoming a little unreasonable, such as regulations on car makers and internet providers.

    We can't predict what can happen in future and we can have some hope that china wants to be a powerful nation in the world.

    Hard to say.  Their star is certainly rising just now.

    But I don't think that their road will always be smooth.  The political structure there is not stable over the longer term, in my opinion; pressures for more democracy will only grow as prosperity increases and the middle class grows.

    Also, many climate models project serious water supply issues for China as global climate change continues over the next few decades.  (For some quick details on that, consult my Hub on Gwynne Dyer's book "Climate Wars.") That will probably impact their food security and impose political strains, too.

    Lastly, they will need to devote considerable energy to maintaining security in their immediate neighborhood--Pakistan is in serious trouble, IMO, and will demand considerable attention from China and India both (as well as the USA!)
