Storyline


As Chinese President Xi Jinping will start his visit to India for the second informal summit with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the Wuhan Summit last year, the Indian people are expecting the trip to inject new impetus on people-to-people exchanges between the two countries.

At the invitation of Modi and Nepali President Bidhya Devi Bandari, Chinese President Xi Jinping will attend the informal meeting with Modi in Chennai and pay a state visit to Nepal from Oct. 11 to 13.

In people-to-people and cultural fields, bilateral exchanges between China and India have flourished over the past years. Rukmini Chatterjee, an Indian dancer, started to cooperate with her Chinese counterparts in 2014 and has toured the two countries several times. She remembered her trip to Beijing in May for the Conference on Dialogue of Asian Civilizations.

"It was a very powerful experience because what struck me, so we were there for the dialogue, and what struck me was the depth of knowledge and understanding that President Xi sort of showed about all the different ancient civilizations that were present there, also the fact that a leader of his stature was able to take such a key interest in dialogue of civilizations," she said.

Chatterjee is excited that the Chinese president will visit India and hopes to see the trip promote more cooperation and exchanges between the two countries.

"In the next three years, we got to have a lot more intensive collaborations going on. When you start actually interacting between cultures, you realize that the heart opens up, and then everything else opens up," she said.

Practicing yoga, drinking Indian black tea and watching Bollywood movies have become fashionable among Chinese youth. Chinese movie stars such as Jackie Chan are household names in India. China's Wushu or martial arts have become popular in the country. At a martial arts association in downtown New Delhi, a lot of young Indian trainees are practicing Chinese martial arts. Gurleen Kaur is one of them.

"When I started Wushu, when people used to ask me what sports I do, I used to tell them Wushu and they will ask like 'what is Wushu?' So I usually explain to them that Wushu is a Chinese martial art, and it's a combination of kick, punch and throw, but these days, our sports people and our coaches have done so much good, and the China team has supported us so much good, that I don't need to explain to people what is Wushu. Now they really understand good what is Wushu, so I'm very happy for that," she said.

Kaur is very happy to learn of Xi's visit to India and hopes China can send martial arts coaches to her country in support of the development of martial arts in India.

"And to be a really worthy visit for the Chinese president and we welcome him to India. So I want a coach should be here, who should support us because we have given so much respect to China and their martial art," she said.

Apart from dancing, martial arts and acupuncture, Chinese cuisine has also won over many Indian people. So far, the two countries have established 14 pairs of sister cities and provinces. There are 54 flights linking major cities of the two countries every week.

Next year, the two sides will jointly hold a series of activities to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties, pool the strengths of the two peoples, promote cultural exchanges and cooperation, and plant deeper roots of the China-India friendship.
