  • 前不久写了这篇博文咒骂Dalai 其中翻译了五点要求 发在facebook上

    很成功的是 没过两天 一个原来很支持Tibet的希腊同学跟我说 她看了我的文

    问我能否把那文翻译成希腊文 发到她母亲的报纸上。。。
    To be frank, this world-famous monk named Dalai Lama has always been disgusting me, like he always disgusts most of the people in China. In my life I have literally never met any person in the country that feels comfortable about him.

    And once again, he disgusted me when I was visiting the Nobel Museum this afternoon, where they had this video of the monk's accepting the Peace Prize going on and on. As I was feeling really bad in the stomach at the sight of the video, I asked the guide at the museum: “Has the foundation ever withdrawn any prize that has been announced, since sometimes the formerly known good person can turn out to be really bad?” I knew the answer but I just wanted to ask.

    A lot of things are happening recently related to the monk, which inevitably and constantly bring him into my sight, since I have the habit to read news. And these things have convinced myself more than ever of my natural and profound feeling of disgust about him.

    One thing I had always been wondering came clear after the recent breakdown of talks between Chinese officials and envoys of the Dalai Lama. Since the monk claimed that he didn’t request the independence of Tibet, then what does he want? What can the country offer him? How can we satisfy him? This was what I’d been always wondering. Yesterday the senior official, Zhu Weiqun, concluded the 5 points from the monk at a conference in Paris, which are:

    No.1 Do not recognize that Tibet has always been part of China from the ancient times. (However, from the beginning of the Yuan Dynasty, the central government has already started the administrative jurisdiction of Tibet, which has been 700 years of history. Read any report on Tibet from western media, the description is and will be always like this: Tibet, which was occupied by the Chinese troops in 1950...which is rather viciously distorted.)

    No.2 Adhere to the so-called "Great Tibetan Region”. That is, to claim an area that covers not only the present Tibet but also the whole Qinghai Province, parts of Gansu Province, Sichuan Province and Yunnan Province, where there’re few Tibetans. That’s an area of about 2,400,000 square kilometers, more than twice the current Tibet and about four times the size of France. That’s exactly one fourth of the country's territory.

    No.3 In the so-called "Great Tibetan Region" he seeks a high degree of autonomy. That is autonomy of everything except for defense and diplomatic affairs, over one fourth of China's territory.

    No.4 Call for the withdrawal of all national troops from the whole region, so that Tibet will become a so-called "international zone of peace." (I thought the monk just mentioned that the “high degree autonomy” didn’t include defense.)

    No.5 Implement “Tibetanization” in the whole region, that is, to drive away tens of millions of other non-Tibetan people from one fourth of the Chinese territory, imposing ethnic discrimination, ethnic cleansing and ethnic segregation.

    Now I understand how we can satisfy him, clearly. We just sacrifice our whole country. We just sacrifice the hopeful and happy perspectives of all the lives of the 1.3 billion people. We just sacrifice the whole Chinese society that has been developing over the past 3,000 years. And that’s, all.

    And what if we can’t?

    Then this monk instantly reveals his true intent. He had always claimed that he was taking this "middle way" attitude and just wanted Tibetan autonomy within China but not outright independence. However, as is also reported in the newly published news on NY Times, " Tibetan Exiles Meet to Ponder a New Strategy", this most famous monk in the world finally revealed his real intent: The independence of Tibet, or should I say, “the Great Tibetan Region”.

    I have always tried to understand how the western world thinks of him. For example, I noticed these words in the same report of the NY Times: "The Chinese government has tried to bolster the economy of the area it calls the Tibet Autonomous Region, whose gross domestic product of $5 billion in 2007 was the lowest of any region in China." These words totally show the ill will of the writer with an ill mind. Because it just doesn’t make any sense. To mention the LOWEST GDP regardless of the population of the area, it just doesn’t make any sense. How come the report doesn’t mention the more than 12% of annual GDP growth of the past 7 years in Tibet, which exceeds the average developing pace of the whole country, which will really make sense?

    As I was trying to understand those people, I went to a main website (http://phayul.com) that supports the independence of Tibet. I randomly read some articles. And I was just shocked by all the nonsense, which reaches the most ridiculous, most non-logical and most indecent level I’d ever seen. One of the articles posted on the website, “TIBET: A democratic state without a territory” by Kate Heartfield from The Ottawa Citizen reads: It's funny that apologists for China are always saying that it takes a long time for an Asian country to develop into a mature modern democracy. Isolated and impoverished Tibet did it in less than half a century, despite the fact that it had to do so in exile, in a little complex of plain concrete buildings on a remote hillside in India. China, which is infinitely richer, more stable and better-connected, ought to be able to develop even faster. China's government resents Taiwan and Tibet because they have shown just how possible democratization is. Since it’s just happening in some buildings in some remote area in India, since it has never actually practiced upon a real society, since it is just some dream of somebody, how can you at the same time declare it as a mature modern democracy, which China may take a long time to develop? How can you just say these words? How can it possibly tell this nonsense, shamelessly? And by the way, the most basic knowledge, Chinese sometimes don’t like Taiwan NOT because of its democratic society but its independent act, which is exactly the same in the case of Tibet.

    Although, I do think I understand that for many western people, sometimes when they think about something, some place that is really, really far away from their own lives, that they have never been to, that they always have to depend on imagination of, they can be not understanding that just one simple thought in their mind can mean the total different living conditions of thousands in Tibet, whether living in slums or in good apartments; or the peace and struggle of thousands, with smile or blood; or even a war that means the life and death of thousands, that they don’t even know, that they never meet, that they can just totally forget the next day if they get some little trouble in their own everyday lives, like a bad haircut. And these thousands, include both the Tibetans and all other Chinese people.

    Just like the British government announced very recently that it was dropping its formal recognition of Tibet’s suzerainty relationship with China, a status that indicates real autonomy. The recognition dated back 94 years but can be suddenly forgotten just because the finacial crisis is here and UK wants China to be on its side dealing with the crisis. It turns out that the money in their own pockets is so much more important than some stupid monk anyway.

    And a Nobel Prize, in the name of peace, that must have always been greatly encouraging the monk, can mean MUCH, MUCH more than that. If there’s this possibility, that after the monk's declaration of seeking formal independence of Tibet, things get much more worse than the RIOTS that happened this spring; If then it gets even worse that China splits into several parts and there’re civil wars all over China, then the simplest question will be like this: Is it in the name of peace, or in the name of war and practice of death?

  • 11月24日,也就是昨天,下了今年瑞典的第一场暴风雪。暴雪下了整整一天。不免让我想起2003年的北京,也是11月,我人生的第一场雪。不免想起那雪来的很突然,不免想起那晚在建馆熬夜做体验城市作业,然后同组的人集体出去主楼广场打雪仗,不免想起那晚很晚我一个人骑车回紫荆的路上一个很大的被雪压垮的树枝重重地砸在我自行车的前轮,不免想起我被划破的右手,以及不免想起那晚我如何把这惊现一刻描述给PC YS听。

     

    最近班级论坛复活,大家又陆续开始出现并灌水。灌着灌着,我说我很怀念和Eddie两个人经常在学研地下奢侈吃点菜然后不时一聊就聊很深入话题的日子,又想起来我是520最后一个走的,送走党员和WG的塞满行李家具的面包车时我还落泪了。又想起来我还给宿舍最后的一片狼藉拍了最后一张照。

     

    以下照片,记录人生以来最大的又一场暴风雪。

  • Sometime around 3:00 p.m. today, that’s about 10:00 p.m. in Beijing, a girl jumped from the 4th floor of a campus building, crashing her head on the hard cold ground, in my former university.

    I noticed it when some student, some witness posted the information on the university’s BBS.

    As hundreds of people on the BBS instantly started the discussion of the life and death issue, responsibility issue and so on, I found the death’s webpage on Xiaonei (a Chinese facebook). I started reading her notes. Lots of notes…Once I started, can’t stop.

    The most striking thing for me is that she seemed to be a rather cool person. She was a lesbian, which can be easily noticed, since she mentioned some “SHE” several times in her notes. She was always wearing these rather cool neutral clothings in the pictures she posted and listening to this great song of True or False by Fanfan.

    She was like writting poems. And she was obviously suffering the depression. Every line she has written is filled with the feeling of depression.

    “Depression, something I must have born with. Congenital and inherent.

    With time of happiness is mania. A kind of depression, started from the summer.

    Narcolepsy existed from a long time ago, just that it gets worse.

    Can fall asleep whenever and wherever, as long as I feel more comfortable sleeping than staying awake.

    …”


    She studied in the art school, she wanted to be a director, she was shooting some movie, she wanted an excellent SLR, she wanted a professional VCR, she wanted to do a lot of things, needed a lot of money…

    She imagined several ways she could die. Be shot in the head, blood pouring out to the ground. Be hit to death in a gang fight, with blood scattered in all corners of the world. Or be floating in the ice-cold sea, body pushing back to the earth by the tidal water. Or every piece of her flesh and blood flies in a bomb attack in a war somewhere in the world…

    As I was reading, I couldn’t stop thinking still, still, there were so many chances that it could’ve never happened. I couldn’t actually realize that these words I was reading were written by someone who literally didn’t stay in this world. I couldn’t feel more doleful as other hundreds of people accusing her cowardice and irresponsibility on the internet.

    She wrote in her last note not long ago,

    “I am alive.

    Happily or painfully alive.

    All for myself.

    I kill myself.

    Because of my own unbearable suffering.


    When would the winter end.

    When will I be happy?

    I am waiting for the arrival of the new year.

    Waiting for the day when spring comes warmly.”



    As I think of it, at this long and dark night of northern Europe,

    She was a beautiful person.

    Hope she goes there well.
  • 好久没写了。上半学期结束了,庆祝活动是所有同专业的中国同学在KJ家进行k歌活动,火锅活动以及杀人活动。玩到半夜,她家的音响效果很好了,差点就能变成钱柜了。

    结束了两门课,一门是关于斯德哥尔摩的发展和规划历史,每周bus tour,过些日子再整理照片放上来。另一门课是studio,最后快交图的几天我们组发生了吵架并流泪事件。话说我非常惊讶于自己说英语并不会让我变成一个更加和善的人,相反,却能够说出这么mean和伤人的话来。当然,当然是事出有因,当然我的harsh是有理由的,但是总之我没有忍住,我说出很mean的话来,然后我们组那个伊朗来的女生就哭了。OMG,我竟没任何内疚及反悔。我说, My problem is that I don't wanna fail. 然后她马上接话:Do you think that I came all the way from Iran to fail here? 说完此话就哭了。不久后班里就盛传我把组里的女生搞哭了。。。我变成如此cruel的人。

    Kevin(即是锐弟,以后均以英文名称呼俺两弟弟)说他们就快要选专业了,说想选经济与金融,然后跟我聊了很多关于钱的事,聊到我觉得都没有一点学术气息了。我说好啊,我可以再去问问在牛津读博的LL。Junior(即是细弟)因为期中考,没有回家。希望他考得好。他应该也有收到我的明信片吧?

    后天坐免费船去芬兰,然后过几天去爱沙尼亚。在下个period开始前小玩一下。

  • 赏心乐事 - [Enjoy My Life]

    2008-10-09

    周一的下午在地铁上,发生了一件最神奇的事。话说我对面坐了一个blond girl,大概不超过20岁的样子。妆很浓,贴着假睫毛。到某站的时候,她站起身。这时我好像觉察到什么,一看,她果然朝我微笑。这边人都非常礼貌友好,于是我也微笑回敬。然后我低下头,她往车门走去。就在这时,就发生了。她走了两步还没出车门,忽然转身走到我旁边,弯下腰,定定地看着我,快速地说了这样一句话:“YOU ARE VERY CUTE.”我一时语塞,思绪纷乱,想要开口回答什么却什么也说不出来。然后她就迅速地在车门关上之前走下车了。

     

    留我在车上越想越好笑。因为我当时带着耳机听歌,也清楚听到她说的话,说明她说得非常大声,所以周围的人大概都听得到,也许整个车厢都听到。但是蛮开心的事情。

     

     

     

    今天下午慎司说去买衣服,我就跟去了。先到他家把东西放下,顺便参观了他位于市中心的月租四千的豪华宿舍。然后逛了很多很贵的店。基本上买不起那种。慎司很快在weekday买了一条四百块钱的那种这边很流行的非常非常slim的裤子。我看到了一件也是这边很流行那种开领毛衣,但是试穿了一下不是太fit。一边逛我一边说等圣诞节一定要狂买。慎司说他必须趁现在买因为日元对克朗已经升值超过50%。后来我终于在很便宜的H&M(就是刚在上海开店的那家)买了一顶帽子。

     

    后来慎司又带我去可以俯瞰sthlm全城景色的地方,又在他家吃了来瑞典第一次吃的冰激凌以及日本零食。又欣赏了他现场写汉字。因为他说在日本书法23级中他的水平是最高一级。Orz。

     

     

     

    然后晚饭去kista那里的在瑞典见到的唯一的老乡同时潮汕人的LJC同学那里蹭饭。此同学非常好人做了丰盛饭菜招待俺。值得一提的是有猪肝。哎,也是我来瑞典第一次吃到猪肝汤。虽说猪肝有点腥,但还是很enjoy的。后来聊到打工的事情,震惊地发现原来这么多人都已经开始在打工了,餐厅服务的,发报纸的,大家都好“勤力”啊。我说不行我现在的留学生活太舒适了,我也应该去发发报纸体验一下真正留学生的滋味。LJC说好啊,他可以带我去登记一个。在车站等车的时候,说到家人,我又跟他炫耀了那个刚去人民大会堂聆听胡锦涛讲话的在清华念书的弟弟,说以前我都是觉得弟弟都是不懂事很多事情跟着自己走,但是现在全然不同了,他也有我所没有的他的骄傲。说也许他的哥哥对他也有同样的感受吧。

     

     

    合影留念。然后回家。开心。
