    I would love to live in Beijing (China) - Indian FM

    External Affairs minister Salman Khurshid said he had a "very very friendly, open and productive meeting" with Chinese premier Li Keqiang, who is scheduled to visit India later this month in his first official overseas trip. During the visit, the two countries will make a joint statement that is meant to send a "strong message to our people, to Asia and the rest of the world", Khurshid said.

    "Both sides felt a measure of satisfaction that the existing mechanisms had worked" in resolving the border intrusion at Daulat Beg Oldie that lasted nearly three weeks. Khurshid told the Chinese that both sides should work out through their respective systems why such a thing happened and that in future should such incidents happen, they should "be addressed with a greater sense of urgency and with less passage of time".

    Khurshid, who waxed eloquent about the flowers in Tiananmen Square, the warmth of the people on the streets of Beijing and Chinese blossoms in spring, said if asked whether he would like to live in China, the answer would be yes. "But not while I'm foreign minister," he clarified.

    The pollution there is making lives of the citizens a hell. I wonder what he liked there :lol:

    Beijing Residents May Not Be Able to Escape China's Bad Air - Philip Bump - The Atlantic Wire

    China's wildly fluctuating (and increasing) urban air pollution is prompting some residents of Beijing to seek homes elsewhere. A look at recent air pollution data, though, suggests that most of the country's cities suffer similar problems.

    Both the Wall Street Journal and The New York Times have written recently about Chinese workers and families who want to leave the country's cities in search of breathable air. The Times quotes a doctor:

    “I’ve been here for six years and I’ve never seen anxiety levels the way they are now,” said Dr. Richard Saint Cyr, a new father and a family health doctor at Beijing United Family Hospital, whose patients are half Chinese and half foreigners. “Even for me, I’ve never been as anxious as I am now. It has been extraordinarily bad.”

    He added: “Many mothers, especially, have been second-guessing their living in Beijing. I think many mothers are fed up with keeping their children inside.”
    But it isn't just Beijing. Ever since the U.S. Embassy in the capital installed an air quality monitor and started tweeting hourly readings (see: @BeijingAir), U.S. facilities in other cities, like Shanghai (@ShanghaiAir), have followed suit. The newly public data also both inspired the Chinese government to recognize the problem and encouraged others to develop tools to track it. A group calling itself aqicn.org (Air Quality Index China) offers a real-time map.

    Not surprised, many Indians already live in China. They come to China to start a business and live a good life. China is a better place to live than India. Go to Shanghai and you will see what I'm talking about. Sure we have some problems like pollution, but that's being addressed. This foreign minister probably wants to escape the stench of the human faeces in Indian streets due to the well publicised defecation problem.

    Indian FM: "I would love to live in Beijing."

    Translation: My country sucks, I want to live in China instead.

    the original news is about an Indian politician based in New Delhi talking about Beijing, so yeah, gpit's comparison of New Delhi and Beijing as a response to your hostile remarks on Beijing is very spot on.
