                      It's up to you Abha. Though it would not make you any less Indian, for many people like me it becomes a matter of principles. It may be a negligible amount in a nation's perspective but Why support a country which is by nature a land grabber and has been threatening ours. I have in fact opted to live without a commodity or buy a costlier NON-Chinese product just to do my bit of responsibility towards my nation(it's my belief, but everyone is en led to one of their own). Be it a mobile phone, a toy for my son or a BP reading equipment.
