(Ponnappa / Mid-Day / January 2002)

The cartoonist plays on the Chinese Prime Ministerís name, using the polite Hindi form "Ji" to address him. The "wrong" refers to the Chinese policies in Tibet. This had been indirectly acknowledged when the Premier ordered a ban on logging in Eastern Tibet in 1998. Beijing realised that indiscriminate logging had caused the severe floods of the Yangtze. The cartoon also refers to the human rights violations which were not addressed.
