Ep. 41: The China Marriage Market
In People's Park in central Shanghai, every Sunday afternoon, a congregation of old people shows up religiously, week after week. These are not people enjoying their retirement, they are on a mission. A mission which gives them anxiety, sours their relationship with their kids, and often remains unfulfilled. In continuation of the series China Unseen, this week Utsav takes you to this very park, which reveals a sobering reality of modern China, and maybe even the rest of the world. Tune in, and discover what is common between India and China, and why your host was given two pairs of silver chopsticks as a farewell gift.
