Finished reading a book of short stories by Yiyun Li. It gives a very nice perspective on china. I have read Amy Tan earlier - both these book though very different in styles makes me realise how similar the family structure/ values are in china & india. Its uncanny - its almost as if you could replace characters from chinese to indian and keep the story the same. It also leaves you with a feeling how lucky we are to be in India.
On another note got this insight from someone- The one child policy has created quite a rupture in chinese society. It has led to amongst other things lack of mobility of the workforce as the married couple has four people holding them back (dont think i need to elaborate how !).
Spend the last three days in a fairyland - an amazing resort in Chiang Mai - a 52 acre property with villas, temples, lakes, paddy fields, colonial houses ...
