    Chinese Youth Occupies Kerala Assembly!!

    Mar 1, 2012

    KERALA/INDIA: 'Cheng Peng sat tightly on Kerala Chief Minister, Ummen Chandy's chair at Kerala Assembly House. He is the C.E.O of Chilaedeng Chengdu Industrial Development Company Ltd. of Chengdu Province, China.

    Seeing cameras flashing intermittently, Secretary General of Chengdu Association Of Enterprises with Foreign Investment, Sunshine Yuan sits firmly at his close chair. Kerala Speaker was watching all the noise in smile.'

    Chinese Youth delegation that came part of India-China Youth Summit were the one's who occupied the Assembly House. They were surprised to see the big and proud Kerala Assembly house. Sunshine Yuan said "..great".

    Cheng Peng dont know English, but Yuan translated his response, "..god, how bigg is this.."

    There were 105 people in chinese delegation, including 41 ladies. They were hurrying to take photos by running to different parts of Assembly hall, in standing, sitting and various poses as if they are at home or in China. Being guests of Kerala, they were given every freedom. Seeing Keralite staffs dressed in traditional Keralite dresses, some of them expressed their wish to take photos with them. Even if they only knew chinese, some how using signs and expressions their requests were accepted!.

    Language was a great problem for most of the delegation members. In 105 chinese, only 5 were English literate, rest all pure Chinese!. After spending 10 minutes in Assembly hall, chinese delegation went to Banquet Hall to participate in official Reception. Seeing red carpets and curtains there, Cheng Peng doubted - "like our People's Congress". His doubt in eyes didn't even clear when told, there is no politics in colour here!.

    Kerala Speaker addressed the delegation."Your this visit to Kerala is very important regarding us. Kerala and China had trade relationship from ancient period and was state-sponsored. Cheng Hei, who came here representing Ming dynasty is a great example.
    In 1983, i had also visited China as part of Youth Summit. The memories of that visit which lasted 12 days, is still greenish..!.", Kerala Speaker said.

    Speaker also explained the history of Kerala Assembly to Chinese delegation.

    Sheng Meijun, leader of delegation and Adt. Atny. Gen. of China said "Feel very happy to understand Kerala's governance and human rights in the deep level".

    Later Speaker gifted a carved portrait depicting Kerala Assembly to Meijun. In return Speaker was gifted a photo drawn by Jon Datsien, popular artist of China. His drawing is used for teaching Chinese.

    Chinese delegation came to see Kerala Assembly after visiting Kara kulam village and Kilimanoor block village in morning by splitting into two separate groups.

    On Thursday they also met Ummen Chandy, Chief Minister of Kerala.

    Chinese youths' visit to Legislative Assembly

    Last Updated : 01 Mar 2012 11:08:07 AM IST

    THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Standing mesmerised in the opulent Assembly Hall on Wednesday, the youngsters from China who came as state guests could not resist themselves from laying hands on anything. Even the chair of the Deputy Speaker was not spared.

    They created a commotion to pose before the cameras and the spirited even attempted to reach the Speaker’s chair. The visit to the temple of democracy thus became memorable for the youths, who had arrived on a goodwill mission organised by Nehru Yuva Kendra.

    The youths, most of them in casual attire, were accorded a warm reception by the staff of the Legislative Assembly. Before they could contain their anxiety as well as surprise, Speaker G Karthikeyan came to them. Recollecting his maiden visit to China in 1983 as part of an Indian youth delegation, the Speaker said that the 12-day tour had provided him with deep understanding of the Chinese culture.

    “Both the nations had trade relationship from time immemorial. The trade at that time was also state-sponsored. This visit of the Chinese delegates and their journey to the rural areas of the State would provide them first-hand information on how the local administration functions here,” he said.

    The group, drawn from diverse provinces of China, ranging from Sichuan to Jilin, comprises varied communities like researchers, students, artists and businessmen. Though different on various counts, they all agreed that the journey to the far south of the country had provided them a better understanding of the culture and climate of their immediate neighbour.

    For the teenage Wushu performers Li Xisha and Wang Jiaxiang, India is a country that should be understood from real-life experiences. “Nice place and nice people,’’ they said with the help of a translator.

    But for Sheng Meijun, the team leader of the delegation, the visit is not just for understanding India, but also to inform Indians that what they read about China is not entirely true.

    ”Before this visit, my perception about your country was a little mixed. Same is the case when it comes to your reporting about China. Both the nations are mighty powers who, if they join hands, could defend the interests of Third World countries. Partial reports are appearing in the media here about democracy and freedom of expression in China. They are intended to tarnish the image of China. In China, the same approach can also be seen against India. ‘They’ are trying to vitiate the power and influence of the nations,” Meijun said. But he shied away from defining who ‘They’ were.

    The team leader, with the help of a translator, painstakingly mentioned what transpired in his mind when he set off on the journey to India. “By joining hands, the two key players can amplify their impact and reach. China wants peace with India. For normalising the relationship between the two countries, people-to-people interaction should be strengthened, along with bilateral discussions,” he said.

    President says India-China relationship will define Asian century

    NetIndian News Network
    New Delhi, February 27, 2012

    [​IMG]
    President, Pratibha Patil interacting with a Chinese youth delegation at Rashtrapati Bhavan, in New Delhi on February 27, 2012.

    President Pratibha Patil today said the 21st century was the Asian Century and India and China, as two major Asian countries, would play a major role in the realization of this dream.

    "The content, scope and depth of the India-China relationship will to a large extent define the Asian Century," she told a 500-member Chinese youth delegation which called on her at Rashtarapati Bhavan.

    "Our two countries are undoubtedly playing an important global role, but the synergy emanating from our partnership, can make a huge difference in today's world and how we look at the future," she said.

    Patil said there was need to create a better understanding between the peoples of the two countries; and this is where youth could play a major role.

    "The youth of the two countries should travel to the different places in each other's countries, understand each other's culture and traditions, share with each other, their ideas and experiences, identify areas of cooperation, and together act on these areas to create such a synergy," she said.

    The delegation, led by Ms Luo Mei, Secretary, Secretariat Central Committee, Communist Youth League of China, arrived here on Saturday on a nine-day visit to the country as part of the India-China Youth Exchange Programme.

    Among those present on the occasion at Rashtrapati Bhavan was Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports Ajay Maken.

    Patil pointed out that in both India and China the youth comprised a large proportion of the population. "This demographic dividend has contributed immensely to the efforts that our countries are putting, towards achieving developmental aspirations. I am of the view that the more that we do towards channelizing the energy of our youth, the faster would be our growth," she said.

    "Both our countries are millennia old civilizations, with a very long history of interaction among our people from all walks of life. In today's contemporary world, it is very important that young minds from both countries familiarise themselves with our shared history and our commonalities, and with our opportunities and challenges in this modern world. I compliment the vision of the leaders of both our countries for emphasising the importance of youth exchanges," she said.

    The President said China's rapid economic growth over the last three decades had been spectacular and riveting. It is now the second largest economy in the world with a GDP of approximately $ 6 trillion, she noted.

    "An important reason for China's success is that its youth are focused on improving their living standards, and are driven by the quest for a more prosperous future.

    "In India, we have been able to maintain a high growth rate despite the current global economic crisis. The contribution of Indian youth is evident all around us. The success of India in the Information Technology sector is largely because of the dedicated efforts of Indian youth. Our youth are excelling in their endeavours," she said.

    Patil told the members of the delegation that their visits to different places in India and interaction with people would enrich their experience. "I encourage you to take the opportunity to make new friends in India. You have the future responsibility of further strengthening India-China relations, and I am sure that you will carry out this responsibility with utmost care and enthusiasm," she added.

    The exchange programme would involve interaction with local youth, visits to tourist and cultural sites and introduction to economic and social activities around the country.

    In addition, it also has elements of educational value such as interaction and exchanges with students and faculty members in academic institutions, meetings with economic and political personages and interactive sessions covering different streams such as culture and sports.

    The delegation will also visit historical places in Delhi and travel to Agra to see the Taj Mahal.

    From tomorrow onwards, the delegation will be divided into six separate groups. Each group will then visit one of six locations: Mumbai and Aurangabad (Maharashtra); Trivandrum (Kerala) & Bangalore (Karnataka); Jodhpur and Jaipur (Rajasthan); Patna, Bodh Gaya and Rajgir (Bihar); Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh); and Kolkata (West Bengal). All the groups will fly back home on March 4.

    During his visit to India from December 15-17, 2010, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao had said that 2011 was designated as the year of “India China Youth Exchange” and subsequently the number of delegates in the Exchange Programme was increased from 100 to 500.

    The visit by the Chinese delegation is a reciprocal gesture to the visit of a 500-member Indian Youth delegation, led by Maken, to China from September 20-29 last year.

    The first 100-member Indian Youth Delegation visited China from October 8-17, 2006, followed by the return visit of a 100-member delegation from China from November 20-29 that year. Similar exchanges took place in the next four years.

    Build better ties between India-China: Prez to Chinese youth

    New Delhi, Mon Feb 27 2012, 15:45 hrs

    [​IMG] It is time to create a better understanding between India and China and youngsters of both these countries can make it happen, President Pratibha Patil today said.

    As a delegation of 500 youngsters from both countries met her at the Rashtrapati Bhavan here, Patil expressed hope that both the countries can help establish the 21st century as the "Asian century".

    "I am of the view that now what is required, is to create a better understanding between the people of our two countries and this is where our youth can play a major role. The youth of the two countries should travel to different places in each other's countries, understand each other's culture and traditions, share with each other their ideas and experiences, identify areas of cooperation, and together act on these areas to create such a synergy," Patil said.

    The President also encouraged the Chinese youth to make "new friends" in India. "You have the future responsibility of further strengthening India-China relations, and I am sure that you will carry out this responsibility with utmost care and enthusiasm," she said.

    "The 21st Century is the Asian Century. India and China as two major Asian countries will play a major role in the realisation of this dream. Our two countries are undoubtedly playing an important global role but the synergy emanating from our partnership can make a huge difference in today's world and how we look at the future," Patil said while addressing the delegation, which will later visit other parts of the country.

    Sports Minister Ajay Maken and the Secretary of the Chinese delegation Luo Mei were also present during the meeting. The youth from China are here as part of an exchange programme. A similar delegation from India had visited China in September last year.

    "Both our countries are millennia old civilisations, with a very long history of interaction among our people from all walks of life. In today's contemporary world it is very important that young minds from both countries familiarise themselves with our shared history and our commonalities and with our opportunities and challenges in this modern world. I compliment the vision of the leaders of both our countries for emphasising the importance of youth exchanges," she said.

    Patil also lauded the role of the youngsters of both the countries for the success in the field of Information and Technology (IT).

    "China's rapid economic growth over the last three decades has been spectacular and riveting. It is now the second largest economy in the world with a GDP of approximately 6 trillion US Dollars. An important reason for this is that its youth are focused on improving their living standards and are driven by the quest for a more prosperous future," Patil said.

    "In India, we have been able to maintain a high growth rate despite the current global economic crisis. The contribution of Indian youth is evident all around us. The success of India in the IT sector is largely because of the dedicated efforts of Indian youth. Our youth are excelling in their endeavours," she added.

    While describing youth as the "future of the world", Patil said both the countries have recognised the strength of the overwhelming presence of youngsters in both India and China.

    "This demographic dividend has contributed immensely to the efforts that our countries are putting towards achieving developmental aspirations. The more that we do towards channelising the energy of our youth, the faster would be our growth," she said.

    Jolly good that the Chinese youngsters have come to learn of India.

    I am sure they are the cream of Chinese youngsters and hand-picked.
