China's Cultural Return: Nationalist Aggression Behind Tradition!
The partition of the country in 1947 brought an end to British rule in the subcontinent. India and Pakistan were created after the colonial rule. Then, after a little more than two decades, the journey of an independent state called Bangladesh started on the map of the world. Cultural inequality was a very important aspect in the journey of the rise of Bangladesh by declaring rebellion against the various repressive policies of the then West Pakistan.
The controlled use of culture serves as the greatest tool to destroy the originality of a country, to endanger its very existence. Being the religion of culture, it is evolving. It will change, new elements will always be added, various things will happen. However, among all the possible weapons for controlling a nation, there is probably no such thing as an excellent second to prevent the normal flow of culture.Bengali songs, poems, literature, above all, the sixteen-year-old Bangaliana meant the destruction of the Bengalis by imposing a completely unreasonable ban on all that was meant at that time. That is to say, the unwanted interference of the ruler in the practice of culture as a tool of exploitation paves the way for repression in various ways.
This time it is a slightly different topic. The main thing is culture but not its suppression but encouragement.Chinese leader Xi Jinping. Fluent, robust presence in the media; Great speech; Tough-aggressive attitude with the United States; All in all, he is a highly discussed and criticized personality in the hot field of world politics. It is debatable to call him in the black and white mold of good-bad, moral-immorality, etc., but it is undeniable that he knows the subject of diplomacy very well! Why are you talking? Or how does Jinping relate to the galaxy of culture?
In China, before the Qing dynasty, a garment was very popular. Of all the ethnic groups currently living in China, the Han community is the largest in terms of population. In China, the renaissance of the practice began in 2000, with some online websites. The beginning of this very small range of old fashion is being termed as Hanfu Movement.Over the course of two decades, this renaissance of fashion has taken on a larger scale than it initially did. Although this style of clothing has not yet found a place among the general population of the country, it is occasionally seen by some fans in the streets or shops of China.
The spread of fashion is called Hanfu Movement after the wide sleeved and cross collar garments named after Hanfu.The word Hanfu literally means Han Clothing, meaning the characteristic clothing of the Han community. The most notable aspect of Hanfu clothing is that it is a body or figure hugging dress, meaning that the body shape of the person wearing Hanfu can be fully understood.
The question that may come to the mind of the reader is exactly why a garment is being called a movement. Surprising but true is the fact that only Hanfu-centered clothing stores, designers, researchers and even a branch of photography have sprung up.The price of a Hanfu shirt can range from 30 to a few thousand dollars. According to China's state-owned media China Daily, the local market value of the Hanfu industry is currently around ৪ 154 million. Everyone associated with the Hanfu Movement is deeply involved in this cause. They organize clubs at different universities, hold regular meetings, organize fashion shows on various topics and organize various popular sports.
