Yet the Chinese President, when he came
Took time off to reminisce,
And thanked Dr. Kotnis -
Can you tell me the reason for the same?
Reuters 23/11/06: Chinese President Hu Jintao met and thanked the family of an Indian doctor on Thursday who died treating wounded Chinese soldiers over half a century ago and became a hero in that country. Hu, on a four-day visit to India, spent around 20 minutes with the 79-year-old sister and eight other relatives of Dwarkanath Kotnis, who is remembered in Chinese textbooks for his services to Chinese soldiers during the 1937-1945 Sino-Japan war.
