Some people ask me : how come I know so much about China, I was born in small town of Punjab region of India. When I was very young our primary school teacher used to tell us, our neighbor is very civilized country, lord Buddha is reverend there, and he told us lot of amazing things about China. I vowed then that I will try to learn as much as I can about China, it was my quest to learn more and more about China/Chinese.
Some of the a few pictures which author took during his and her ( I and my wife ) trips to China.
China is not a homogeneous country : it is a myth that it is one race, there are 55 recognized minorities, and surprising they all live in peace.
China is very safe place on the earth, most of the people are very honest, hard working and mind their own business.
China has the fastest train in the world, which attains maximum 431 km/hour, I have traveled in that train.
Mandarin is the main binding force which binds the country, otherwise there are so many dialects among Chinese.
Rice is not a staple food all across China.
It is myth Chinese have miserable lives: by and large Chinese are very happy, friendly and hard working bunch.
Most of them adore their very hard working smart leader/s for example Honorable president Xi and his wife the first lady are very popular in China and abroad.
