Luckily, Shan had reason to celebrate because he was saved by a new rule.
Right before the wedding, a specific standard was established banning high-priced betrothal gifts, or caili in上海千花坊
Chinese. Other extravagant customs, including holding grand wedding ceremonies or funeral rites as well as inviting an e
xorbitant number of guests and using lots of cars to pick up the bride and her relatives, were also prohibited.上海千花坊
The government of Feixiang district – which covers 265 villages, including Shan’s, with a population of 410,000 – found the competitio
上海千花坊n to see who could give the best betrothal gifts and hold the grandest wedding ceremonies had become a big headache for villagers.
Families of young women envied those who gave lots of money to a bride’s family and held ex
pensive ceremonies with many guests, said Cai Fuhai, Party chief of Nanduqi village.上海千花坊女神会所
They would ask parents of their soon-to-be sons-in-law for similar treatment, Cai said.
According to the standard, no more than six cars can be used for picking up the bride and her rela
tives. Previously, up to 40 cars would be used as part of a grand and impressive wedding ceremony.上海千花坊
Furthermore, guests are served a simple meal – a vegetable and meat stew, or daguocai in Chinese – rather than a meal wit

Families who obey the standard may enjoy benefits such as free physical examinations for parents and
newborns at local hospitals. Pregnant women may also receive discounts for examinations during pregnancy, Cai said.
Families who do not obey the rules are required to make a self-critical s
peech during a meeting attended by villagers and local government officials. Those wh上海千花坊女神会所
o refuse to make the speech and admit their wrongdoings are exposed on local television and other media platforms.
Villagers fall in line
According to the Feixiang district government, more than 1,000 families of young wom
en have refrained from demanding betrothal gifts from their bridegrooms’ families since 2017. About 1
00,000 households in the district have signed commitment letters promising to obey the standard.
Government statistics show that the cost of a wedding has been cut to less than 30,000 yuan, down b
y about 80 percent, and the current cost for a funeral is less than 5,000 yuan, just a sixth of the previous cost.
he Sichuan-Tibet Railway, the second railway line linking the Tibet autonomous region to other parts of China, will opera
te high-speed trains with a designed running speed of 200 kilometers per hour, thecover.cn reported.
China Railway Eryuan Engineering Group Co Ltd, which is designing the line, revealed a draft plan on Wednesday that tra

The 1,600-kilometer-long line under construction is designed to start from Chengdu, pass through Ya’an and Kan

nitiative is a challenge, but achievable,” she said, adding that at the heart of this challenge lies great potenti
al for innovation and creativity, such as new disaster risk prediction and analysis, and disaster-resilient infrastructures.
Huang Runqiu, vice-minister of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, said dis
aster risk reduction of natural hazards along the initiative is crucial for its success and sustainability.
Regions at the heart of the initiative, such as the Tianshan-Pamir Platea
u, the Himalayas, eastern parts of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and South Asia, are facing serio
us disaster threats due to tectonic movements, fragile ecosystems and extreme weather, he said.
Henrik Slotte, a senior disaster management expert from the UN Environm
ent Program, said poorly managed infrastructure projects can damage the ecosystem.
