印度衰退的中国社区面临痛苦的战争过去

由于被怀疑是间谍或者是中国的同情者,在印度出生的当时九岁的莫妮卡刘及其家人通过轨道车被运到了位于印度拉贾斯坦邦沙漠的拘留营里。在1962年中印一个月的边境冲突之后,总共有3000名左右的中国后裔在没有接受审判的情况下被送到这个地方,其中大部分已经是印度公民。在这座英国人于19世纪建造的德奥利拘留营里,她度过了五年时间,刘还记得里面很热,没有学校,而且她妈妈从白天到夜晚哭个不停。但是她最强烈的记忆是在被印度政府释放后他们一家人所面临的绝望境地。

India's Chinese community, whose ancestorsflocked to Kolkata and the northeast to do business, bore the brunt of India'shumiliating war with neighbouring China -- fought 52 years ago this month.

早先中国人来加尔各答和印度东北部地区做生意,所以形成了后来的中国人社区,但是52年前的这个月,印度与中国发生边境战争,并被羞辱,于是这些中国人后裔就成了替罪羔羊。

I noticed that none of these folks evenonce talked about or complained about help from "social services"!HMMMM!! They simply did what they had to do to survive and then thrive!! Goodexample for folks here in the USA!!!

我注意到这些中国人从来没有谈论过或者抱怨过社会服务部门没有给他们提供帮助!他们只是为了生存而努力工作着,然后生活开始变好!!美国这边的人应该以他们为榜样。
