The legend of Goddess Mazu
Hailing from a multicultural heritage, I grew up listening to all kinds of stories about legendary heroes and Goddesses. Over the years, my love for legends never ceased. I was always curious to discover new heroes and heroines who gave a sense of hope to millions of people through barriers of time and geography. Six years ago, when i embarked upon my journey to China, I knew that my destination was a treasure trove of legends as old as the skies and thus began my quest of unearthin ...

Winds of Winter
As the cold is sweeping across all the regions of China, it is hard not to notice how everything changes during winter. The tall gigantic trees that covered the roads majestically with their branches hovering with leaves stand as lonely beings stripped off of what used to be their pride. In places like Fuzhou, the sun plays an endless game of hide and seek and often remains hidden for days altogether. Suddenly, everything around us seems so cold and frosty; as if living in a gigantic refri ...

Many of us know that learning is an on-going process in life but most of us fail to realize that even teaching is a kind of never ending process. Yes. Teaching. We have become so focused in assigning specific roles to ourselves and to all those surrounding us that, in the end, we have forgotten about this one role that we have to keep playing every second of our lives. So engrossed in essaying for other roles, we tend to ignore and sometimes even fail at this small but significant role. ...

China... 4 years on ...
It has now been four years that I have been in China, four years where I have learnt myriad of things about life, four years of incessant discovery in China, four years of emancipation and four years of progress. As I go four years back to who I was, I can certainly say that I have grown in many ways. I have become used to many Chinese practices, I have adapted myself to many Chinese behaviors and lifestyles. Four years on, I still find it funny when I encounter certain s ...

A tour in Fuzhou Daxuecheng
I should say I witnessed the worst possible weather in Fuzhou for the last one week. It has been raining all through the week and when Sunday dawned into a beautiful cloudy day, I decided to take my chances and stroll through my university town. I live in a land of universities and I was always very thrilled to go about and enjoy the architectural beauties that each university had to offer. Every university in our town was unique in its own way and certainly beautiful in ...

Being a medical student in China...
Life as a medical student in China has not always been a piece of cake. There are many obstacles that pulled me back through my journey of living my dream; that of being a doctor. Still, life always pointed out to me that after the rain comes the sun... Indeed, with every obstacle that I encountered with, came a small victory. First, there was an obvious language barrier that made communication hard. Yet, with time, that appeared to have disappeared to an extent. Today, when i s ...

Road to 旗山 万佛寺...
It was a typical cloudy afternoon in Fuzhou, a seemingly boring afternoon where I didn't have anything interesting to do. I just decided to take a stroll around my campus to get some fresh air. As I got out, the first thing that seemed to have caught my attention were those gigantic Qi (旗)mountains. I have always had the habit of gazing at them ever since I came to Fuzhou but today they seemed different. I felt like something was pulling me towards them. Surprisingly, I bumped into a fr ...

Fuzhou.. The birthplace of a Hero ...
Having spent almost four years in fuzhou, I thought I knew a lot about this place I now call home. But, yet again, Fuzhou will never cease to surprise me. Every passing day in this city of fortune is a new adventure with a new lesson to be learnt. A casual stroll today along the Fuzhou San fang Qi xiang - 三坊七巷- made me stumble upon a piece of Fuzhou's history. What made my discovery altogether more special and surprising was the fact that I came to know that this very city was actually ...

Why did I come to China...?
As my plans of coming to China eventually started to shape up, the only thought in my mind was that I would be embracing the most rich and yet to be discovered culture in the world. Because, at that point in my life, Chinese culture was one such culture of which I knew the least. Hailing from a multicultural heritage like Mauritius, I had been exposed to diverse cultures and this had increased my thirst to know about other cultures as well. China seemed to be a mysterious land ...
