China, as per our Chinese posters, is doing well and there is no signs of poverty as such. However, this report indicates sad cases of dire financial distress that caused the adoption of all these sad modes in practically selling themselves to redeem their financial requirements just to exist with basic needs. Yes,basic needs. It surprises one that in a Communist country where the people are looked after by the State, common people are abandoned and medical treatment is as expensive as it would be in a capitalist country which the common man cannot afford. A very fraudulent form of "socialism with Chinese characteristics".
