Chinese man gets lost in India!

Forty-one year old Li Jian Ping , a member of an expert team visiting a steel factory in the south Indian state of Karnataka, found the fresh morning air irressistible and decided to take a stroll. But the walk went on for much longer than anticipated, and got him on to all the local TV channels as well! Ping lost his way. He couldn’t find his way back because he knew no language other than Chinese, and the locals, not surprisingly, didn’t know Chinese!

Ping’s team-mates reported to the factory manager that he was missing, and the manager lodged a ‘missing person’ complaint with the police. The police flashed Ping’s photo on all television channels, which also appear to have covered the news. By the evening, some of the locals guessed that the ‘lost person’ talking the strange language could be the missing person. They informed the police, and Ping was re-united with his team.

All is well that ends well. But just imagine the plight of an Indian lost in China. Where might he have found himself at the end of the day, I wonder.
