"When I think of India, a lot of people inevitably think of slums, and I'm a little curious about that, but I'm more concerned about the red light districts in India than the slums. ”
The Chinese guy made no secret of his curiosity about the red light district, and had already made up his mind to visit India when he traveled to India.
What did the guy do in India's red light district, and why did he start sighing after going around?
A trip to India for a Chinese guy
Ah Yong, a young man from Guangdong, China, became interested in India's red light district after watching an Indian movie. There are many videos of India's slums on the Internet, but very little about India's red-light districts.
With this curiosity, Ayong embarked on a trip to India, and in order to make his trip smoother, he also hired an Indian as a tour guide.
Asking for this tour guide, Ah Yong can be said to have spent a penny, because many Indian tour guides refuse to receive him because he is Chinese and wants to go to the red light district.
Only this Indian guy who called himself Ah Ran, although he was not a regular tour guide, was very happy to show him around India, and would definitely take him to the red light district he was familiar with.
However, Ah Ran put forward two requirements, one of which is that he plans to travel to Guangzhou, and hopes that Ah Yong, a local, will take him to play at that time.
The second is that Ayong is not allowed to use any electronic devices to take any videos or photographs of the red light district.
Ah Yong readily agreed, and the two hit it off, Ah Yong first traveled to India, and then Ah Ran followed Ah Yong back to China to start his own trip.
When Ah Yong's plane landed at the airport in India, he was still a little worried that he would not be able to meet Ah Ran when he left the customs, because he had heard that many Indians were quite untimely, they were always late, and they would give all kinds of strange reasons.
However, it turned out that Ah Yong was too partial this time, and he suddenly saw a sign with his Chinese name written on it, and an Indian brother who looked refreshing and smiling stretched his neck to look for him.
Ah Yong hurriedly walked over, this was the first time the two met offline, but after chatting so much online, he wouldn't feel embarrassed.
The Indian brother Ah Ran took Ah Yong back to his home, Ah Ran lived alone and did not live with his parents. This is also the first time that Ayong has come to the home of a young Indian person, and he feels that it is not much different from the Chinese.
Ah Ran's cooking skills are good, and he prepared Indian food for Ah Yong at the first meal, and several different colors and colors of paste were placed on the table, Ah Yong looked very emotional, thinking that Indians really have a soft spot for paste.
Although Indians are accustomed to eating pilaf with vegetables with their hands, Ah Ran did not force Ah Yong to do the same.
He probably also knew that Chinese use a tool called chopsticks for eating, and he also prepared chopsticks, as well as a spoon.
After all, a lot of food can't be caught with chopsticks alone, and it is better to hit the rice with a spoon.
Ah Yong ate an authentic Indian meal, and the taste was actually quite good, not as bad as described by netizens he had seen on the Internet before.
I guess it's because I put the tomatoes, it tastes sweet and sour, and there are some spices mixed together, and I feel a little strange when I eat the first bite, but then I feel very good when I eat it, and it's very appetizing mixed with rice.
Among them, there is also a serving of chicken, which is also very delicious, the chicken is smooth, sweet and spicy, with a little sourness, and the various flavors are paired with fluffy rice, which is really addictive.
This meal undoubtedly satisfied Ah Yong, and at the same time realized that what is said on the Internet that Indian food is difficult is not all true.
Anyway, the food he ate was still very good, and he watched Ah Ran cook with his own eyes, and he didn't find any unhygienic links.
Although Ah Yong thought it was indeed delicious, he still couldn't avoid diarrhea.
It is said that most foreigners will have diarrhea after their first meal in India, not because the food is not clean, but more because the stomach is not used to it.
According to Ah Ran's words, it is normal to go to a new place, and it is normal to be uncomfortable, simply put, it is an ordinary adaptation to the soil and water, and it is not a problem of Indian cuisine.
After diarrhea, Ah Ran gave him half a white pill, the effect of this medicine is really strong, and his stomach will not hurt after 5 minutes after eating, and the whole person is refreshed after the last pull, without any discomfort.
Head to the Red Light District to find out
When Yong came to India this time, food was not his focus, but he wanted to see the red light district.
So the day after arriving in India, after visiting the slums, Ayong was led by Ah Ran to one of their local red-light districts.
This red-light district is quite large, and if no one says it, Ah Yong will only think that it is a small community, but the environment is a little worse.
It is visible to the naked eye that after entering the red light district, there are significantly more women.
Yong and Ran walked around the red light district, both of them feeling bored, and finally they found a movie theater and simply watched a movie in it.
The environment of this cinema is not so good, there is garbage in it, there is an indescribable smell, and the sound and other facilities are not very good.
However, there are still quite a lot of women in this movie theater, and they sit peacefully watching movies, and through the light from the big screen, Ah Yong can see the relaxed looks on their faces.
The movie that aired at that time happened to be the one that made Ah Yong curious about the red light district, telling the queen of the red light district, Gangubai.
Because I've watched it once, although I can't understand it, I can still understand it, and when the movie shows the clip of the heroine being beaten, Ah Yong heard obvious crying.
Ayong thinks India is really magical, and is showing the film in a cinema in the red light district to encourage women or to be ironic?
Of course, what makes him even more amazing is why there is a movie theater in the red light district, and it is still showing such a positive movie, which is really incredible.
What the hell are Indians thinking? It's hard to understand...
It's late at night when you walk out of the cinema, but you can still hear all kinds of sounds in the red light district, and you can see the dim yellow lights.
Ah Yong sighed involuntarily and said, "Seriously, you Indians are really amazing, or rather, your country is really special, and people are completely confused. ”
Ah Ran asked a little puzzled: "Why do you say that? I think you China is even more amazing, and India is no match for you." ”
Ah Yong couldn't laugh or cry, feeling that the two were not talking on the same channel at all, he said: "It feels like everyone is living a normal life, and it seems that there is no difference from people in the slums." ”
Ah Ran was surprised when he heard this, and said: "Probably because the same people are controlling these two places, of course, I just said it casually, I don't know if it's the end." ”
"Anyway, I think whether it's a red light district, a slum, or a rich area, it's all part of India. ”
"The emergence of red light districts and slums is also part of the progress of the country as a country, and many Indian elites have tried to deny or try to hide their existence. ”
Ah Yong looked at Ah Ran, an Indian, and his many previous prejudices against India changed, because Ah Ran was really too sober!
Aran continued: "I have always felt the need to deny the existence of these facts, I have read a book that says that only when a person can face up to his weaknesses and shortcomings can he become stronger. ”
"I think it's the same for a country, and only by confronting these so-called 'dark sides' that already exist can it be possible to eliminate these dirty places and make a good life for the people here. ”
Ah Ran said and spoke, suddenly laughed, and said: "Alas, I'll just talk about it, just listen to it, I'm just an ordinary person, I'm already great if I live my own life, I don't care about other people, how the country is, I don't care at all." ”
Ah Yong listened quietly, thinking it was amazing, and also felt that Ah Ran was amazing, and had a lot of ideas.
There is really nothing to see in the red light district, but when it was about 1 o'clock in the morning, Ah Yong saw a different scene on the way home.
In the darkness of the night, he suddenly heard singing, and he looked in the direction from which the sound came, and saw five little girls gathered together, and between them was placed a cake that did not look so delicate, and a candle was inserted in the cake.
The girls were all smiles, and one of them, who looked to be about fifteen or sixteen years old, seemed to be making a wish.
When the singing stopped, they began to blow out the candles and cut the cake, the small cake was divided into five parts, and several of them gathered around to eat the cake, their eyes full of happiness.
This different scenery made Ah Yong sigh, and Ah Ran on the side looked quite moved.
"My sister is about the same age as them, and she has a big cake on every birthday, and then she wears a beautiful dress and receives a lot of gifts," he said. ”
Ah Yong listened quietly, and couldn't help but think of a sentence he had seen before: people are divided into three, six, nine and so on, and there is a hierarchy when people live, no matter which era or country there will be no exceptions.
The Indian girls chatted quietly, and after eating the cake, they went back to the house next to them, and there was no more sound.
The night is getting deeper and deeper, and the red light district is still lively, but the two of them no longer have the heart to continue to wander, and Ah Yong's original idea of hunting for curiosity has completely disappeared.
It is undeniable that he is really curious about the red light district, and he came with a mocking and curious mentality, but when he arrived here, he lost all excitement and superiority.
Although the people here are Indian, and he is Chinese, he has nothing to be proud of, and can only say that he is lucky, born in China, not India.
No matter what happens in the future, the women around him will not be reduced to such a situation, and this is not due to him, but to the country in which they live.
When the two returned to Ah Ran's residence, it was already past 3 o'clock in the morning, and the two hurriedly washed up and rested.
Lying in a strange bed, unable to sleep, Ah Yong sympathized with the Indian women in the red-light district, and at the same time became more and more fortunate that he was Chinese.
In fact, he saw a lot of quite impactful pictures, and he couldn't bear to look at them directly, but what happened in reality shocked him, although Ah Yong thought it was incredible, but Ah Ran seemed to have become commonplace.
He as an Indian did not express any displeasure about this, just as when he saw a few children fighting over a mineral water bottle in the slum during the day, whether it was Aran or other Indians, everyone seemed to be numb.
Ah Yong felt that he had looked down on India as a rather arrogant and ignorant mentality, and he was not actually qualified to say what India was, after all, as Ah Ran said, they were just ordinary people.
After about 9 days in India, Yong decided to return home, and Ran was ready to travel to China.
In these 9 days, Ah Yong also gained a lot, he not only saw the slums, but also saw the red light district, and also went to many interesting places.
In addition, he also ate a lot of Indian specialties, although he also had a stomach several times, but he was still very satisfied when he ate it.
If you really want to say that Ayung dislikes the most, it is that the public toilets in India are too simple and the environment is too bad.
The first time he entered a public toilet, he threw up on the spot, after all, it was summer, the weather was already sweltering, and the visual impact inside and the smell really made him sick to his stomach.
Ah Ran was startled when he saw Ah Yong spit out, and waited until he recovered before he said embarrassedly: "I'm sorry, not all public toilets are like this, I hope it didn't cause you bad damage." ”
"After all, it's a public toilet, anyone can use it and it's not profitable, so it's normal to be worse, isn't that the case in your China?"
Ah Yong's face turned white and said: "Of course not, you will know when you go to China, China's public toilets are really not like this, my God, I really felt that I was going to die on the spot just now, it's terrible!"
Despite this terrible experience, Ayong is still very satisfied with his trip to India, and although he no longer has the arrogance of looking down on India, he still feels that he is lucky to be born in China.
