Smoke and Mirrors | Pallavi Aiyar

Smoke and Mirrors is translated to Tamil as ‘Cheena – Vilahum thirai‘ (சீனா – விலகும் திரை). This is an excellent curtain raiser in Tamil for China, its quick economic development, twin sides of the Chinese society etc. She perceives China from an globalized Indian eye.
