Navneet:高先生从芜湖给我写信(1)

三泰虎2月9日译文,Navneet:高先生来自芜湖,很久以前他给我写了一封信。一直以来,我未能花时间写一篇有关他家乡的博文。就像大多数与我交流的中国人一样,他也面临英语障碍。然而大家仍然克服这一障碍给我写信,努力构造句子述说他们的家乡。他们对祖国的热爱表现在他们不连贯的句子中,这些句子是通过在线翻译出来的。他们都为自己可怜的英语水平表达歉意,表达了与印度建立亲切关系的愿望。

外文地址:http://creative.sulekha.com/gao-writes-to-me-from-wuhu-wow-part-1_613605_blog


Mr. Gao from Wuhu wrote to me quite some time ago. I wasn’t able to devote time to write a blog about his place. Like most of the Chinese who communicate with me, he too has as a handicap of not knowing English. Still all of them overcome this formidable handicap and write to me in the effortfully made sentences about the places they come from.

The love for their country shows in their disjointed sentences converted to English by online translator. Every one of them apologises for his poor English and expresses a desire of having a cordial relationship with India.

高先生来自芜湖,很久以前他给我写了一封信。一直以来,我未能花时间写一篇有关他家乡的博文。就像大多数与我交流的中国人一样,他也面临英语障碍。然而大家仍然克服这一障碍给我写信,努力构造句子述说他们的家乡。

他们对祖国的热爱表现在他们不连贯的句子中,这些句子是通过在线翻译出来的。他们都为自己可怜的英语水平表达歉意,表达了与印度建立亲切关系的愿望。

I have no right to call a lack of ability to communicate in English a handicap but as an Indian, I can’t help seeing it as one.

Their neighbours, the Japanese and the Koreans are doing without English too and there are many countries in the world who too care two hoots for English. China has shown to the world that the lack of its knowledge of English cannot stop it from excelling as a nation, but there seems to be the inferiority complex in the minds of the Chinese on account of this, I don’t know why.

我没有权利说用英语交流能力的缺失是一个障碍,但是作为印度人,我禁不住将其视为一个障碍。

他们的邻居日本人和韩国人也是不说英语,世界上有许多国家不在意英语。中国已经向世界证明,不会说英语阻挡不住其成为一个出色国家,但是中国人思维中对此却存在自卑情结,我不知道个中原因。

Unlike Indians they weren’t ever ruled by the British who were stunned by the riches of India when they landed on her shores in sixteenth century. There is one e-mail of “Lord Macaulay’s first impressions of India in circulation since years. He came to this land which was called "The golden sparrow" because of her immense wealth and riches. He, by his own admission, was confounded, wonder struck and left speechless by the prosperity of the nation. He spoke these words in the British Parliament in 1835 or there about.

1 (11)

Lord Macaulay said the following about India in 1835 in British Parliament.

与印度人不一样,他们并未受过英国统治,后者于16世纪登上印度海岸时被印度的富饶所震惊。有一封关于麦考利勋爵对印度第一印象的邮件流传了多年。他来到这个因为巨大财富而被称为“金色麻雀”的土地。据他自己承认,这个国家的繁荣让他感到不知所措,他大吃一惊,激动得说不出话来。1835年,他在英国议会上说出了这些话。

"I have traveled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such calibre, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem, their native self-culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation."

He was very right. For another a hundred and twelve years they kept on doing that. Today an Indian, who can speak English considers himself more qualified than the one who can’t and it’s not only that he thinks so, even the one who can’t speak English considers him to be mentally superior than himself because the whole society, even the government thinks so, prefers the one who knows English over the one who doesn’t.

我走遍了印度的大江南北,从未看过一名乞丐,也未看过一名小偷。如此巨大的财富,如此崇高的道德观、人们的水准如此之高,我不觉得我们能够征服这个国家,除非我们打断这个国家的脊梁,也就是她的精神和文化遗产。因此,我提议替换掉他们古老的教育系统和文化。如果印度人认为一切都是外国的,英语比他们的母语好,那么他们就会失去自尊,失去他们自身的文化,他们就会变成我们希望的样子,即一个真正被主宰的国家。

他说得非常对。在112年里,他们一直那样做。今天,会说英语的印度人自视比不会说英语的印度人更高级,不仅会说英语的印度人这样认为,就连那些不会说英语的印度人也在心理上觉得他更为优越,这是整个社会的心态,就连政府也更喜欢聘用会说英语的人。

Our prime minister, at least the one in office, can’t dare to speak in Hindi at an International gathering but the Chinese Premier will insist on speaking in Chinese, even if he could speak English as fluently or haltingly :-) as his Indian counterpart does. We infact are still under a foreign rule or ruler, may I say :-)), some can see, some can't and most of us are oblivious to it.

Macaulay came to India nearly two hundred years after his countrymen started plundering her, but they were far down the list of depredators who came to this land in search of riches.

In 2011 when the vaults of a temple were opened to take an account of wealth burried there, the stcok taking was stopped after a few days on court order. And this is the case of the riches of a temple little known before the find.

我们的总理,至少现任的这一位,不敢在国际场合上说印地语,但是中国总理即便能跟印度总理一样说流利英语也坚持说中文 :-) 实际上,我可以这样说吗,即我们仍处於外国统治之下,有些人会说英语,有些人不会说,大多数是不以为意。

2011年,一座寺庙的地窖被打开来清点财富,几天后被法院一声令下叫停。这是一座寺庙财富的例子,在这一发现之前是鲜为人知的。

"Reclining Vishnu" one of many "Murtis or Pratima". Made of solid gold....Priceless for antique value..estimated value 100,000000/- dollars

$22 billion in gold, diamonds, jewels found in Indian temple's secret vaults

As it appeared in the News :-

Gold coins, diamonds, and other precious stones discovered in the vaults of a Hindu temple in southern India are worth an estimated $22 billion. Debate is brewing about what to be done with the riches.

印度寺庙的秘密仓库发现价值220亿美元的黄金、钻石和珠宝。

正如新闻中所说的,印度南部一座印度教寺庙的地窖里发现了价值大约220亿美元的金币、钻石和其他贵重宝石。有关如何处置这批财富的争论正在酝酿中。

And this is the case of one temple, unheard of before it made the headlines. In India there must be hundreds of such unheard of treasures if not thousands.

Singing the Glory of God...The Glorious Golden temple- All the glitter that you see is of sheet of real gold covering the temple.

The Indian campaign of Alexander began in 326 BC. Muslim rule started in some parts of north India in the 13th century when the Delhi Sultanate was established in 1206 CE.

这是一座寺庙的例子,成为头条之前闻所未闻。即便不是数千座,印度肯定也有数百座此类闻所未闻的宝藏。

印度亚历山大运动开始于公元326年,穆斯林统治于13世纪开始于印度北部的部分地区,而德里苏丹国建立于公元1206年。

Richness of Art

This country might have been looted of her material wealth but cannot be looted of her culture, of her spritual wealth, of understanding by her many citizens as to what is the Real Wealth.

She was looted by the Afghans and Turks too and before the British, came the Dutch and the French too. Although the British left the ruling of the nation to us but they left us so wrteched that we don't even think our ability to make decisions worthy. In the recently declassified document making headlines, it's been disclosed that the then PM Indira Gandhi consulted Margaret Thatcher over Miliary operation code named " Operation Blue Star" for flushing out the terrorists inside the holy shrine "The Golden Temple."

这个国家也许被掠夺走了她的物质财富,但是掠夺不走她的文化,掠夺不走她的精神财富,掠夺不走国民对真正财富的理解。

在英国之前,她被阿富汗人和突厥人掠夺过,后来荷兰人和法国人也来了。虽然英国把国家的统治还给了我们,但是他们让我们变得非常可怜,我们甚至不认为做出决定的能力是值得的。最近解密的文件成为了头条新闻,文件披露时任印度总理英迪拉甘地就代号为“蓝星”的军事行动咨询过玛格丽特·撒切尔,该行动旨在驱赶金庙里神殿的恐怖分子。
