Photographs bring alive postmodern China

A photography exhibition on China organised to mark the 63rd anniversary of the People’s Republic of China on Monday brought alive postmodern China.

The exhibition at the Chitrakala Parishat showcasing Chinese deep sea exploration devices, the Zhongguancaun Science Park, wastelands turned green by pasture protection programmes and tech cities presented a collage of the country’s meticulous policy planning over the years.

The photographs of Mao-Tse-Tung with the Indian officials were a treat to the visitors.
Speaking on the occasion, Niu Qingbao, Consulate General, People’s Republic of China said China and India have a lot to learn from each other.

Noting that India was a leader in many industrial sectors, he said that China had a friend and a partner in India.

Niu Qingbao described several measures taken by the Chinese government to root out inequality among its people.

Political will

Western China was lagging  when compared with other regions in the country. The Chinese government in the year 1999 decided to tackle under-development and today it is on a par with the rest of the country, he said.

General Secretary of India-China Friendship Association, Karnataka, V Bhaskaran said more opportunities will be created for Chinese students in India in general and Karnataka in particular.

“Manipal and Mysore universities have entered into MoUs with Chinese universities and other varsities should emulate their model,” he added. Though many students back in China are willing to study in India, getting a visa was a major hurdle, Bhaskaran added.
