Hakka Earth Dwellings [Civilization & Innovation]
A Vast Majority of the Chinese in India are Hakka Chinese. So who are Hakka People ?
The state has allotted a 2,700sq m plot in the Calcutta Leather Complex in Bantala to set up the Tanning Training and Service Centre with help from Italy. S.S. Kumar, the chairman of the Government College of Engineering and Leather Technology, said this on Thursday.
Tangra is synonymous with the leather industry in Kolkata but the West Bengal government’s drive to push the leather tanneries out of Tangra, comes as a double whammy for the tanners themselves who are already feeling the heat of the economic slowdown.
ONE of the most positive outcomes of the thaw in relations between once-estranged nuclear neighbours India and China is the reopening of the Chinese consulate in Calcutta after 45 long years. The diplomatic mission in the West Bengal capital was re-launched a few months ago without much fanfare. But recently the consulate threw a lavish party in the Hyatt ballroom and lawns to usher in the Chinese new year.
