Those who have followed me on China would have seen the vehement, vociferous denials by the Chinese posters on any and everything I wrote to prove that I was wrong and even called a racist. Now, there is one of the issue on which the Chinese posters bluff has been called. it is their own Communist Govt who have exonerated my contention. And this one that Mandarin, which they claimed is one language and understood by all. This has been proved to be patently false and that I was right all through. The Chinese Govt in 1955 introduced what is known as Putonghua or simplified Chinese has not been accepted to be universal inspite of very ardent effort to do so, and effort that is not difficult in a totalitarian country where protest and dissensions can be brushed out and trampled under the boot of the police brutality. The Southern Chinese are clear about their separate identity and so they have not taken kindly to the sly and cunning imposition of the Northern Mandarin spoken in Peking by modifying it and selling it as the only Mandarin that is acceptable. three in 10 of Chinaâ€™s 1.3 billion population are unable and refuse to communicate in Putonghua And they are not ready to have their TV programmes converted to the Peking style Putonghua Mandarin. So much for the much touted and tomtomed Chinese posters claim that Han is one huge homogeneous whole! One more Han falsehood promoted by our Chinese posters stands exposed by their OWN Government. Any comment @nimo_cn, @mylegend, @CCP, @shiphone?
