What ails the Chinese President?

China’s President Xi Jinping has not moved out of his country for the last 600 days now. Xi last went for a trip to Myanmar on January 18, 2020. This year he has attended more than a dozen meetings virtually. Recently, on September 09, 2021, he virtually attended a summit of leaders from BRICS nations. Besides, he has also had 60 telephonic calls with world leaders, including calls with Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron. As per Bloomberg’s report, Xi spoke with the US President Joe Biden by phone on September 10, 2021.  These events have led to speculation on Chinese President’s health condition which is probably not allowing him to travel abroad and attend face to face meetings.

China bought YouTubers worldwide to praise itself in international front

New Delhi: China has hired foreign youtubers to praise the policies of China and change the mindset of people towards China. They use the content which says good things about the country and criticises the critics of the same. YouTubers deny that they are paid and sponsored by the Chinese government. When asked about why they continue to defend China, most of the content creators state that they are on a self-appointed mission to debunk the ‘lies’ of the West and if Chinese media shares their content ‘there is no harm in it.’ But the connection between these so-called independent YouTubers with Chinese State media does not end at the state media just sharing their content, by their own admission these YouTubers have even collaborated with Chinese state media on multiple videos. “One

IDEOLOGICAL LOGIC BEHIND CHINA CRACKDOWN ON PRIVATE TUTORING

Chicken Blood Therapy: A Panacea for Children in China

In recent years, the term “chicken baby” has become popular in China. Crazy parents, who obsessively want their children to become a super kid and ‘succeed’ in every field, push their kids to get ‘chicken blood injection’ as it enhances hyperactivity among them. The demand of ‘chicken blood treatment,’ is on rise in China which used to be a fad during the Cultural Revolution in 1960s. People would wait in line, bring their roosters, to receive fresh chicken blood, which they considered to be the ‘cure-all’ for many health problems, like baldness, infertility, cancer, etc. Media reports suggest that as a result of this, while some hire exclusive tutors and best sports coaches, others go to the extent of buying houses next to the best public schools in the city these days.

Businesses say Hong Kong quarantine threatens financial hub status

Businesses say Hong Kong quarantine threatens financial hub status While infection rates have been kept in check, there is a fear that Hong Kong could be left behind the rest of the world as vaccines are rolled out and economies reopen.

The Chinese financial hub maintains some of the strictest quarantine rules in the world, an approach that...
