三泰虎博客译文《Navneet:我的中国日记……(2)》。Navneet:对于遵纪守法的公民 来说,严格的法律是一项恩惠,因为这些人本身就遵守法律,且需要有一种安全感。你不需要右翼组织或湿婆神军党的暴徒来告诉你什么是对的和什么是错的。如果 你属于其他地区的人或者信仰的是不被他们认可的宗教,那么你就会被视为反国家的。为了获得注意力,他们会焚烧一些公共财产。

外文标题:My China Diary


For a law abiding citizen, the strictness of the law is a boon because as such he/she respects the law and wants to feel safe. You don’t want MNS or Shiv Sena goons telling you about what is right and what is wrong and where should your priorities lie. That if you belong to some other part of the nation or believe in the religion other than the one they endorse, you become anti-national and to draw the attention of the nation they should burn some public property. Some months ago there was an eruption of some riots in Urumuqi here in China and some 150 people were killed. The authorities made an announcement that if the suspects came forward they will be dealt with leniently but they didn’t and surely within a fortnight they were aprrehended and with in a month after a brief trial they were executed. Riots here mean a sedition against the nation and the penality is death. They were all teenagers. They were spared a life time of remorse and regret in prison. There were no proceedings like those for Ajmal Kasabs and Afzal Gurus with government going a great length to show that it cares for their human rights.


几个月前,乌鲁木齐爆发骚乱,大约150人被杀。当局宣布如果暴徒自首,那么可以宽大处理。那些暴徒没有站出来,结果两周内被逮捕,一个月内被判决并被处死。骚乱在中国被视为反国家的暴动,处罚是死刑。那些罪犯都是青少年,他们幸免了在监狱里度过懊悔的一生。没有漫长的诉讼,反观印度政府在处理Ajmal Kasabs 和 Afzal Gurus 案件时极力表现出其关心认全。

You don’t want that Jawan’s should die fighting against an illusive gang hiding deep in forsets posing to be fighting for the cause of the poor. You don’t want corrupt politicians robbing the nation and stacking wealth in the foreign banks that in principle don’t divulge the identities of the looters because they have been safe havens for depsoiting ill gotten wealth since ages and that’s how they have prospered and have won the confident of the thieves.


You want a peaceful atmosphere, equality and justice for all citizens of the nation irrespective of the cast, religion or race. You want a peaceful atmosphere where you can co-exist, grow and prosper with the other fellow human beings. You want safety and security for yourself, your family and for all other fellow beings. It is the duty of the state to ensure that. If I have the freedom of speech, I can use it to speak good and spew venom too in a democratic set up but if such freedom is restricted to speaking only good should you say that your human rights are being scuttled? In China the court proceedings are brief and the justice quick. If the law says no to drunken driving then that’s it. No one tries to challenge it or test it. The cases of poor victims crushed under BMWs or SUVs of the drunken influential people don’t run for ages with witnesses turning hostile in the end. This is culpable homicide and the penality is death here and those handed down the death sentence don’t wait for the execution all their life times. The verdict carries with it the period of reprieve which is all the time left with the culprit to sulk and feel sorry for his crime.



Execution is a reality and everyday there are some. Yesterday, one Japanese national was executed for the crime of trying to smuggle drugs out of China. There is no death penality in Japan agreed, but in China there is and the government won’t change it’s policy for a criminal and consider mercy. For the last one month Google was trying to make some noise about the reports of some human rights activists being filtered by the Govt. watch dogs. Google has made an exit last week as if in an attempt to show to the world how it cared for the freedom of expression or is it that the government has told them to just fuck off? Some months ago YouTube was asked to filter some data being posted on it’s pages but YouTube didn’t comply. So YouTube can’t be accessed from China nor can FaceBook and many more sites I try to reach can be. But life goes on. It’s very peaceful here. Not a car honks a horn. There are no policemen hiding behind the trees to challan you for traffic violations or to rob you off your pocket money. There are only Video cameras at the crossings and yes, the pedestrian has the first right and you better be aware of it.


I feel the text I am writing doesn’t go with the mood of the pictures I am planning to post but it is informative. My idea is to put before you the picture of China through my eyes and now I see spring here all around, a lot of it… So here are some pictures celebrating the arrival of spring.

Well manmade gardens and buildings no longer impress me because one gets used to it within days like i did in the most beautiful and high standard state of Colorado in US.. and the so called peacefulness begins to take the form of emptiness very soon. Of course I agree with the need for stringent laws etc., but are we ready for something that would apply to us like a one-child policy. I am a mother of single child so it doesn’t make a diff for me but would the other sulekhites here with two more children agreed to it?

Actually cleaning up streets and cities is quite easy given that you are willing to jail or kill street children/slum dwellers as it happened discreetly in thailand and other closed countries. But what I am afraid of is the extinction of the kind of spritualism that I have felt alive only in India.

One US colleague pointed to a slum near my locality and asked, “don’t police pick them up?” I felt like replying so should the poor only have jails as shelters?






Right to live does not mean you should let them live, grow and die on the roads, humans and animals alike. Chaos cannot be given the guise of freedom. Order does not mean deprivation of right to urinate in public. Discipline is very important and strict adherence to the laws is important. In the name of liberty you should not be allowed to create raucous and damage public property and get away with it. The kind of freedom we have in India is hard to find in any other country and see the price our country is paying for it. Me and you were never misusing it but those who do, get away with murder because of this very freedom.




its all good because they do it their country but its all bad when they do it in Tibet or neighbouring countries



Politics is a very complicated thing Ashu.

Ashu, 政治是非常复杂的东西。

your wife is beautiful, man 🙂

你老婆长得漂亮 🙂


Thanks Richard Lee- This blog is very old and so is this picture. This picture is of 1987. My son was three years old then :). She still looks good but the time has taken its toll.


谢谢。本篇博文是很早以前写的,那张照片是1987年拍的,我儿子当时3岁 🙂 她当时还算好看,但岁月不饶人啊。

      • 87年俺家连个黑白电视都没有,只有一辆金鹿自行车跟一台上海缝纫机。。

        • 87年我们家有彩电,住的楼房。其他家电没有。不过路上都很干净,这点印度没法比。不过我们这个地方到处都是排水沟露天的,现在没有了。那时候闭路里每到假日,从7点放到晚上10点都是港台连续剧、武打片,一部片子2-3天就放完了,可以一刻不停的看。

    • 不确定那整栋房子是别墅,都是这大叔的,87年有本田摩托也确实惊艳
      从这个87年的本田摩托能看出,中国要追赶发达工业国家还任重道远,希望有一天,印度人开中国摩托,本尊做不了富二代,就让我们的下一代当富二代吧 :mrgreen:

      • …….人种毕竟有区别,香水就可以遮味了嘛。其实东亚人种也有一部分有狐臭的,只是比例没有其它人种高而已。同理,其它人种其实也有没狐臭的或者味小的。其它人种……你值得拥有! :mrgreen:

        • 奇怪,我接触的老外闻起来都香香的,当然人家是爱用香水。可我接触过狐臭的同胞,那个真不是香水可以解决的。。。你们确定老外的体味=狐臭?而且狐臭还和人种有关,你确定?

          • 体味含义广一点,包含狐臭和其它部位的味道。狐臭主要指汗腺分泌的味道。对于一般人而言,狐臭是体味里最强烈的部分。老实说,如果待在北方,冬天洗澡少,还捂出了点汗的话,就是这个味!当然,汗腺越发达的人,狐臭越强烈。

          • 回tenal童鞋,狐臭是种病变(也叫臭汗症,遗传导致,作用原理大致是泌汗细胞激素水平异常),不是什么“汗腺分泌的味道”,至少不是正常健康的汗腺分泌的味道。

          • 笑着回小白:狐臭是腋下散发的,内裤一年不换也不会有这种味道,除非她洋葱吃多啦,我相信你闻到的就是狐臭。。。

          • 人出汗啥味和饮食习惯有很大关系,以前我嘲笑白种人体味重,白种人说中国人一股烂白菜味,其实去吃了白种人食品几个星期,我出汗味道和白种人也差不多了

  1. 看作者的照片可以肯定他是印度高种姓的人,看肤可以看得出来,白肤色的基本没有贱民,就像中国古代的“上品无寒士”一样

    • 虽然从人种学上划分,印度的精英阶层高种姓属于欧罗巴人种,但他们的肤色绝不能称为“白”。。。。我个人认为用深肤色或者浅肤色描述比较合适。。

    • 对印度人的忠告:种姓制度是印度既得利益者 不愿改变 极力维护 短视弱智的 制约印度生产力发展的 垃圾毒瘤!

  2. 话说87年,我家还没自己的房子呢,住的是单位的仓库改的。大概100多个平方的仓库,住我们一家人。大到是大了,就是因为仓库存过的东西嘛,所以老鼠啊,蛇啊之类的也在一起住 😈 。一次老爸做饭的时候,房梁上掉下一条蛇正好掉在锅里 :mrgreen: ,养的狗也被毒蛇咬死两只,当然,咱家的狗也会捉老鼠 :mrgreen:

  3. “警察不会躲在树后抓你违反交规的证据,或者盘剥你零用钱。”

  4. 可以认为这位三哥主要是在对比之下只留意了中国好的一部分,相信他也同样看到过中国仍需改善不那么好的部分。

  5. 我家乡下是1984年建的三间二层的楼房,1992年开始就没什么人住过了但是也没事,以前的质量好啊,听我爸说当时建个房子才四千块,包括泥水工工钱两千多,会有很多邻居来帮忙。1987年我家只有黑白电视,在房顶上撑一支长长的竹杆上面装个鱼骨架。。那个时候自行车很普遍了,我爸还有辆手扶拖拉机,但是摩托车那个时候超贵,所以少。

  6. Navneet是个非常诚实的人–说话中肯非常睿智,很欣赏。


  7. 这位印度哥们不懂中文,负责上腾讯网易和新浪,你会看到中国的丑事恶事罄竹难书啊,我都不敢没事看新闻,看了我的心情会很阴暗,很不快了,上网就是看看别人的笑话,我怕看到中国的新闻,我真的很怕

    • 腾讯网易和新浪上的新闻颇多谣言谣传,不过印度大叔至少会知道一件事,中国普遍网民素质和阿三一样低
