Subodh Varma在印度时报发表了一篇题为《中国喜欢每个国家,喜欢印度多一点》的文章。著名印度诗人罗宾德拉纳特·泰戈尔曾经说过“世界上最远的距离不是生死距离,而是我站在你面前,你却不知道我爱你”。中国某位官员引述泰戈尔的这句不朽名言,称中国喜欢每个国家,特别是喜欢印度多一点。此外,普通中国人对印度的理解通常是奥斯卡获奖电影《贫民窟的百万富翁》,还有喜欢印度电影舞蹈,对印度人坐在火车车顶旅行感到吃惊等等。

原文标题:China loves everybody, India a little more



BEIJING: “The furthest distance in the world/ Is not between life and death But when I stand in front of you Yet you don’t know that I love you.”

Reciting these immortal lines from Rabindranath Tagore is the suave and charming You Jianhua. He is the director general of coordination in the international department of the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) – a pretty senior position. He is urging the point that China loves everybody, with a hint of emphasis towards India. During a luncheon banquet, he says that he has a Ganesha in his drawing room because he has great respect for India.

This is the kind of reaction India evokes – mostly, among the sophisticated elite. They talk of ancient cultures and shared histories, and of another more recent commonality, high GDP growth rates. “We are both strong, emerging economies” is a constant refrain.

But as you leave the rarified circles and mingle with commoners, more color gets painted in. And, one gets a sense of barely concealed curiosity. “Ah, India! ‘Slumdog Millionnaire’!” exclaims Hao Yuenan, a former soldier and currently working in the information office of Sichuan, a province in south central China, right next to Tibet.






Across the vast nation, everybody seems to have seen this Oscar-winning film because it was shown on CCTV, China’s official telecaster. Even in a remote village of the Qiang ethnic group, a shopkeeper beams and says something excitedly to the local interpreter. He is saying that he loved ‘Slumdog’, she translates with a knowing grin.

Knowledge about India is curiously limited to images from television. In several places, people ask whether it is true that Indians normally eat straight with their hands. There is a hint of suspicion that perhaps the TV programme on Indian cuisine and eating habits was not really representative.

In Haimen, Jiangsu province, on the eastern seaboard, Fen Chien who has adopted the Western name Henry for convenience of visiting foreigners, is transparently aghast at the confirmation of this habit. When asked whether he finds it embarrassing, Henry displays quick thinking.

“You eat with your hands because your food must be very delicious, isn’t it?” he says.

Another slice of India that most people have enjoyed is Bollywood dances. Not whole films, not actors but the heavy-duty dance numbers, which seem to be aired sometimes on TV shows.



在江苏省海门市,为了方便访问外国人的Fen Chien取了个西方名字亨利。他显然反对确认该习惯。当被问到是否感到尴尬的时候,亨利表现出了敏捷思维。



“I love the energy and the movements,” says Xu Zhou, a young university student from Beijing. “And the …freedom,” she adds after struggling for a proper word. %What she probably means is “abandon”.

In a gigantic eating house, halfway between Beijing and the Great Wall, 2000 tourists can eat at a time in a vast hall on the first floor (called the second floor in China; their first floor is what we call the ground floor). In the equally big washrooms, piped music is playing. It sounds vaguely familiar. Then it suddenly clicks: it’s an instrumental version of SRK’s Chaiyya Chaiyya.

In Mianyang city in Sichuan, a local journalist who calls himself Ray raises the population question. “On TV they showed an image of a train with people sitting on the roofs and hanging from the sides,” he says. There is no criticism – China after all has a larger population and one never hears any complaint about that. Ray is just worried that why do they have to travel on dangerous rooftops.

But the one running theme – sometimes brazenly stated, sometimes politely implied – is trade relations. China is %a nation obsessed with economic growth. So everything is explored for its economic opportunity.


在北京和长城中间有一个巨大的饭厅。2000名游客可以一次性在一楼的大厅用餐(在中国说二楼。他们的一楼就是我们所说的底楼)。在同样大的洗手间里,播放着喇叭音乐。听起来有种模糊的熟悉感。突然明白了:是Chaiyya Chaiyya的器乐版。



In the Tianfu Software Park of Chengdu, Sichuan province’s capital, officials delicately talk about making efforts to catch up with India’s outsourcing industry.

Sometimes, the approach is direct, as in Haimen. Fen Chien is on the municipality’s Board of Commerce. So he is just doing his job when he asks whether there is any market for carbon brushes in India. “There are many manufacturers of high quality carbon brushes here. They are looking for overseas markets,” he says expectantly. He also offers bed textiles, of which the suburb of Dieshiquiao is an international hub with an annual turnover of over about $8 billion.

On an off-chance he also recommends that Indian investors can find Haimen very profitable.


有时,就像在海门一样,方法是直接的。Fen Chien在市商务局工作。所以他问碳刷在印度是否有市场只是他的工作范围。他很期待地说:“这里有许多优质碳刷生产商。他们在寻找海外市场。”他还介绍了床上用品。叠石桥郊区是个年产值大约80亿美元的床上用品国际中心。

Very nice report, but to be honest chinese people does not have much intrest in India. They know more about the american culture and european culture. And on the other side, the Indian news are bashing China everyday, because in their mind China is a dark, evil empire where people get killed because they visit facebook. Some people, especially white people does not want the two major ancient power to become friends in the future. That will hurt european intrest……

Mr. You Jianhua when he was in class six he wrote this line “China loves everybody, India a little more.” this is not a political statement. just a child article……………………………………………………..

I really hope that was an honest statement from Jianhua, because India has only seen deceit from its neighbouring coutries so far. And I don’t think the Indians have anymore tolerance left. On the other hand, if he indeed is being truthful, God bless him. I wish India and China can emerge and one day live in harmony like US & Canada.

China and India are both great countries. Both suffered from colonial before establishing an independent country. Now the difference is, China is trying to develop through their own way, while India is being used by western super power to fight against China. After China goes down, India will be their next target. You should know that the western countries fight against China is not because China is communism (actually nowadays China is more like capitalism), but because they believe China’s growth will threaten their ability of controlling the entire world. This is just like you are the big guy controlling all the resources, but there is another guy who is becoming stronger, you will certainly believe that guy will threaten your benefits. In the future, India will eventually become a powerful country. The western world will do the same thing to India too. Leon Panetta said in 2011 that the reason why USA moves to Australia is because China and India are becoming stronger, which threaten their dominance of Asia.

Ramalingam Raghupati (hyderabad) replies to jeffirish63
How is China and India both a great country of this world? Incase of India, I can say that it is the largest free and democratic country in the world. It is the world’s only secular country Where every major religious traditions can be found flourishing side by side for centuries. It is the only nation on this planet that is culturally, linguistically, religiously and what not so diverse yet prided on its unity in these diversities. However, incase of China the real story is just the opposite. I am saddened to see how naively you have put China at par with India. Apart from the massive population explosion, I don’t see any greater commonality between India and China.

Like Pakistan, China has time and again, proved to be a deceitful neighbour, backstabbing India at the slightest opportunities throughout history. Infact, i see in China as a much more pathetic country than Pakistan in terms of its social fabric. The vast majority of innocent Chinese lives under poverty and are inhumanely tortured and harassed for raising their voicing for freedom and justice. The bunch of communist thugs and hypocrites that runs China forms a mere 10% of the population yet owns 90% of the total wealth. All of this exploitation happens lawfully in China under the garb of communism and Communist party. With millions of Chinese butchered by their fabled Communist leader Mao, and millions still languishing in Chinese Gulags and Secret black jails, China is infact the world’s LARGEST PRISON.

jeffirish63 replies to Ramalingam Raghupati
I have no idea where you got this, or it just came from your imagination. India has lost their culture. More importantly, they have lost their native language. No mention that English is your native language:-) Your saying “every major religious traditions can be found flourishing side by side for centuries” is a joke. A country without their own language can have their own culture, or own way of thinking? Meanwhle your saying “China is the largest prison”. What a joke! You know how the world look at India? there is a western jounalist, after visiting India, saying that India is dirty. The word dirty is not just you use hand to eat but more like corruption and that one man can get married with tens of women lawfully. This is the so-called human right you have been always talking about. In China, it is illegal for a man to get married with 2 women, this is a real sense of respecting human right. Also, in India there are many people fighting for freedom while arrested or even killed by government army. Even the Sikkim King is still hoping to recover Sikkim. You see how rude Indian are occupying a free land with a brilliant culture. Free Sikkim!

Yet, China is the largest exportor of foreign students and today millions of foreigner are visiting China every year. The world is not black and white. Living under a repressive governement did not mean that you will get killed for criticising the government on Internet. Most of the stuff you have written is overdragged. It is like to say that living under a democracy will wipe out corruption. China is repressive and every chinese taxi driver will sing a song about it. They do not get killed. You can not judge about China since it is as much complex as India. You want to tell me India has no problems? Remember Ayodhya? There will be always stubben people like you who never try to understand a coutry. Most of you knowlege is a mix of racism, mass media and prejudice.

  1. 配图是亮点!

  2. 感觉印度人喜欢隐瞒事实、扮演受害者,以占据所谓的道德优势并博取同情,然后继续我行我素。基于这样的民族特性,确实很难进步。

  3. 一看都这个蠢货阿三跟打了鸡血一样的亢奋就厌恶。MD蒙古和英国统治他们上百年,都没看到他们这么恨。这个蠢货国家被美国剪羊毛剪的好爽。MB天天叫嚣要和中国开打。中国的愤子也没天天叫嚣。阿三呀就你那个马戏团部队,在打也是输

  4. 对印度谈不上喜欢和不喜欢,对他们的印像只有:歌舞,恒河,以及挤满了火车顶的人群,还有那永远不关车门的公共汽车。

  5. 穷姑娘爱人不容易,爱高帅富人家感觉嫁妆寒碜,爱大眼睛三哥人家让你打理的东西更猛.且越示爱三哥越跳高,三哥不要象海军绳那般忸怩嘛,内向的中国人能羞红着脸,面对你吟诵这样柔情的诗可不容易.那些意识形态,上层建筑,人类最最美好的东西,中国人不是不喜欢,而是感到厌倦,相信到过美国和中国的印度朋友心中有数,在中国工作的印度朋友更解其中三昧.中国的社会政治色彩根本不浓,都在为自己的生活张罗.不要张口土共闭口土共,假如火星上有大学,可能去火星上留学的就是中国人,中国人追时髦可不是三哥能够想像的,那可是拚生家性命的勾当,大到付立叶,亚当斯迷,狄德罗,卢梭,马克思,巴梨公社,明治维新,真是逮着什么学什么,至于苹果掉到地上,霍金的黑洞洞,那可是小学生的话题.农民把丝瓜种到一米长,农家宅变成木槿园,土吗?洋是什么意思?假如洋是骑在别人的脖子上以示高贵,高人一等,那么居于人泉的平等就不存在,三哥的心中还存在土和洋的话,最好别瞎说人泉

  6. 印度是个统一的国家么?历史上都是英国人侵略后遗留给印度的。丘吉尔说过印度不是个国家是个地理名词。可笑天天说民主国家,MD要真民主叫锡金和个个邦独立呀?

  7. 为了加强对中国的压力,印度有了做工具的本钱,有些三哥就飘飘然不知所以了,中印友好是互利的,不是印度对中国的恩赐!三哥醒醒吧!不要以为西方会无条件的容忍你,当你的利用价值不重要,和你的作为西方不能容忍时,西方的敌人就是你,而且西方潜在敌人的名单上确实已经标上了你!

  8. 有一点很奇怪,现在中国媒体从来不丑化,敌视其他国家,而其他国家的媒体总是丑化,敌视中国,夸大报道中国的负面新闻。

    • 我觉得有两个原因:1、中国人受儒家思想影响,所以“己所不欲,勿施于人”。在中国,老揭别人短的人,本身就会被人看不起;2、媒体多数是官办的,这样媒体的声音就容易被理解成政府的声音,政府揭人短,会引起不必要的纠纷。西方的媒体多数是民办,就算是说错了话,也只代表媒体本身,不会有什么大问题的。其实中国也有些喜欢揭人短的媒体,比如凤凰卫视。

  9. 三泰虎注:格涅沙(Ganesha)一般中国人可能直称象头神,又译作伽内什。在印度是广为人知以及备受崇敬的神明,是天神湿婆与帕尔瓦蒂的儿子,以及Riddhi与Siddhi的丈夫。在梵语中,格涅沙表示才华与智慧,因此是智慧与才华之神。格涅沙的体态为断去一边象牙的象头人身并长着四只手臂,体色或红或黄,老鼠常伴随在旁或当祂的坐骑。在各种雕绘中,祂一般是盘坐着或是翘起其中一边的膝盖




  10. 哈哈,笑死哥了,好吧这种文章有益健康,期待楼主多产!每次心里不舒服我就看三哥的文章,中国没有明主,印度有明主,哈哈,来过中国没有啊三哥?

  11. 我喜欢印度人的笑话,我觉得每个印度人的评论都是非常幽默的,看印度人自信地中伤中国不会像看到小日本或者棒子那样觉得愤怒,说真的,我只想笑。印度必胜!!

  12. 世界上最远的距离不是生死距离,而是我站在你面前,你却不知道我爱你
