Ep. 46: Miànzi and Girlfriend for Rent
Imagine going home over a holiday, but dreading the whole experience. All because your parents will ask about the lack of your love life i.e. your boyfriend/girlfriend. However, the young Chinese people have come up with an ingenious way of solving the problem. In the seventh episode of China Unseen, Utsav brings to you a foundational idea of Chinese society - Miànzi, and how that drives every single social interaction in China, sometimes even between family. Tune in, to understand why we need to be kinder in our judgements towards new cultures and people, and how to actually do so.
