原文标题：Indians' black skin highlights gold jewellery: Chinese daily
BEIJING: Indians have black skin that highlights gold jewellery, a state-run Chinese daily says in an article that goes on to observe that even girls begging on roadsides have a "gold nail in the nose" and that Indian women don't go out without a nose ring.
"Indian women won't go out" without a gold nose ring, says the article 'Indian beauties wearing gold jewellery' in People's Daily Online.
The Indian government plans to issue "paper gold" to encourage people to purchase gold reserved in banks. Many Indians still scramble for this, which reflects Indian affection and reliance for gold, it said.
"In India it will be considered impolite if women go out without any jewellery," the article, accompanied by a photograph of Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai and other models, said.
"Among all kinds of jewellery, Indians prefer gold ones. Indians have black skin and wearing gold jewellery can highlight this feature. Indian women wearing gold earrings and necklaces can be spotted everywhere. Even those little girls who beg along the roadside with an unkempt appearance have a gold nail in the nose," it added.
It went on to add that in India "it is also very common that men wear jewellery".
"Many Indian men wear three rings with large pieces of jewels on them."
The daily said that for marriage, parents usually choose gold ornaments as daughter's dowry, "which not only set off the beauty of the daughter but can also serve as a kind of property in married life".
"Because of the affection of Indian people towards gold jewellery, jewellery shops are everywhere in India. No matter in metropolises or small cities all the most luxuriously decorated and brightly illuminated shops are selling jewellery," it said.

Crowd blushing will happen. If she throws a flying kiss, half of china will fall in acute infatuation and crush. Unfortunately the tiny chinese will be half the height of Aish and 1/4th of her father in law. LOL

The Chinese didnt equate black with ugliness; We Indians have this inferiority complex with dark skin. What they said was absolutely true: the contrast created by shining yellow metal on dark Indian skin would truly be gorgeous. And dont the forget the fact that India has the largest dark skin population outside Africa with 70% Bengalis, 70% Tamils, 65% Keralites, 70% Karnatakas, 60% Telugus, 60& Biharis,90% Tribals having dark skin at various degrees. Black is indeed beautiful especially with the golden contrast.

The yellow skin of chinese is not suitable for gold, since it would do nothing to hide their physique with small eyes and punched nose. Because of this problem, massage shops are everywhere in China where they try to change their skin tone from yellow to black. No matter in metropolises or small cities all the most luxuriously decorated and brightly illuminated shops are selling massages.

Maybe they mean dark skinned? I think in some languages they don't differentiate between dark or black, so it's just white or black. I live in Istanbul and one Turkish guy thought I was Turkish because I had 'black skin like him' (we both had a similar olive toned complexion). Then it could also be that a lot of foreigners seem to think all Indians are super dark and those who are not are mixed with something. I've had people thinking I'm half "American". Anyway, who cares what the Chinese says about Indians, Indian women are beautiful, would rather be Indian than any other race.

Ni Hau/Namaste/Hello: Tolerate, tolerate. China is opening up in freedom of speech. Let them speak more on any issues. That is good. Most Chinese girls admire Indian girls and their appearance. But there are beautiful girls in China too. China does not have the culture of wearing too much ornaments, while Indians have. It is too simple. I bet, Chinese women will look beautiful if they wear ornaments. But many are poor, can't afford. It is true that Indian women are greedy for ornaments. My advice to Indian women, beautify yourself with good qualities and not with stones (gold). All human race is a beautiful creation. Chinese are our cultural brothers and sisters. Let we shine together. We need more inter-personal interactions. Bharat (India)-China Friendship long live.
