Beijing, July 21: Prime Minister rendra Modi’s efforts to intertiolise yoga may be yielding unexpected results. Chi, which boasts of its own exercise regimes, may be taking to the Indian way of healthy moves. So much so that yoga is being projected as the latest in thing. Chi’s People’s Daily on Tuesday carried a series of photographs showing young girls practicing yoga on a mountain peak 2,000 metres high. The cliff exercises at Funiu mountain in country’s central Hen province may be Chi’s way of popularising it even more.
Hot Beef Noodles: Chi has unveiled what may be the world’s first hot beef noodles vending machine in Shanghai. According to Chi Daily, customers can choose the flavour on a screen and one minute later they can enjoy a bowl of “delicious beef noodles cooked by the machine”. The machine is expected to be widely installed in Shanghai this October, the daily said.
Worshipping Beauty: Move over Aphrodite and Venus, Chi has its own contemporary Goddess of Beauty which even has a festival med after Yang’esha. Several activities are held during the cultural festivities in Jianhe County, in southwest Chi’s Guizhou province, according to official news agency Xinhua. Yang’esha is worshipped by the Miao ethnic group in the region.
Stock market dishes: Those who have lost a fortune on the stock market may take heart. A restaurant in Beijing has ‘invented’ a series of ‘red-coloured-dishes’ which are supposed to bring customers a rebound in stock prices, according to Chinews. Red is for rising prices and green for a fall in Chi, opposite of the colours in India and rest of the world.
Among the exotic dishes to reverse the misfortune in scrips is Hot and Spicy Crayfish, Duck Blood and Vermicelli Soup and Red Burned Lion Head. Lion head (made from Pork meatballs in the shape of a lion’s head) and stock market bulls have a similar pronunciation in Chinese. (IANS)
