China's March to Modernity
Category : Commentary/ChinaMarchToModernity.txt
I'm borrowing the phrase "March to Modernity" from Kishore Mahbubani's book, "The New Asian Hemisphere", subtitled "The Irresistible Shift of Global Power to the East", though whether it is irresistible or not, I don't yet know. Writes Mahbubani (who's been known to question whether Asians can think):
It's been two weeks since since I've been back from China. And I'm still processing the impressions. Before I left, I would have thought I would be excited to write about what I'm going to be seeing. But early on in the trip, I've had the feeling that maybe it would be wise to just keep still and think - because things are going on there now that are going to change the trajectory of the rest of our lives - for me, my family and especially for my kid.
So for now, just some photographs from the trip - through Shanghai, Suzhou, Nanjing and Hangzhou via the "bullet train". It had been a great trip.
