      I'm guessing there's some sarcasm in your comment, as BBC are usually custom to adding India Slums into most of their documentaries about India. Even though it's often unnecessary.

    BBC Farsi should take off the documentary about Abu Ali Sina as he was from Balkh province Afghanistan 🇦🇫 NOT from Iran as it is published.
    Stop stealing identities. BBC Farsi should be investigated for publishing that documtary.

    The Europeans condone the CCP’s evil, and adopting a policy of appeasement for the CCP for money as same as taking a policy of appeasement against Russia in order to escape the threat of war when Ukraine's Donbass has been invading by Russian army. As a result, the CCP is increasingly unscrupulously interfering in the internal affairs and justice of European countries. , kidnapping more Europeans as hostages.

      @circle barry and also can't deny the fact during Soviet times russia incredibly fast developed themselves with many research and invention same now with china...see development , invention , research is not a part of political ideology its a matter of serious thinking and upgrade yourself to stand along everyone... Thus that mean china and russia were the most honest & good country absolutely not both Russia & china were mastermind of evil thinkings , cyber hacking , war , military equipments sellers , loan trappers , political bullyers so same was U.S , U.K . Thus that mean one is superior to others no its just the political thinking and ideology that separates this 4 countries into 2 separate war zone in the name Democratic vs Communist or famous West Vs East ideology

      @circle barry see Britain was a island with hardly have any resources to themselves....thats the reason they started to descover new land to colonise it for resources....18century Britain were poor & broken they have nothing still they worked together and hard to develop themselves and started industrial revolution , discovered & invented so many things , they were cruel and mean sometimes but the invented half of the basic need things of the modern age....and were also democracy in that time....U.S also democracy same way also they invented and descovered so many things.

      @circle barry Britain is not in mess by the way if you try to understand carefully why brexit is not happening forcefully , because everyone having there own decisions to make which is good. They were not giving vote come off the e.u everyone giving there own decisions ,raising there on individual things.

    알파벳 언어가 짜증나는 점은 예를 들어 j를 'ㅈ'이면 'ㅈ', 'ㅇ'면 'ㅇ'로 나라마다 다르게 발음하는 것은 이해할 수 있어요. 하지만 어떤 단어든 일관되게 'ㅈ'이나 'ㅇ'로 발음 되면 좋은데 같은 표기에도 기분 내키는데로 예외적으로 특이한 발음을 만들어 쓰고 있다는 거죠. 예를들어 모음과 모음사이의 t는 'ㅌ'이 아니라 'ㄹ'로 발음한다는 것 같은. 이것은 세계의 소통을 단 1mm 라도 막고 있으며 상당히 소모적인 일이라고 생각합니다. 서양인들이 고치는 노력이 필요하다고 생각해요. 러시아 언어도 심하더라구요. 언어에서 문자는 표기와 표현의 목적에서 만들어진것인데 표기는 같은데 단어마다 발음이 달라져 버린다는 것은 조금 억지를 넣어 표현하면, 굳이 문자를 왜 만들었는지도 의문이라는 생각이 들어요. 그냥 입으로만 전달되면 되지 않는가 하는. 또 전치사도 마찬가지구요. 그리고 언어에는 다양한 감정이 들어가는데 너무 정형화된 문장들만 이해하려는 사고방식은 소통을 막는 요소라고 생각합니다. 문장 자체를 통으로 구분해버리는데 단어와 문장으로 이뤄진 속담이나 명언 같은 표현은 언어에 능통한 사람들이 사용했던 것입니다. 즉 처음에는 아무도 쓰지 않았던 단어와 문장을 만들어 썼던 것이었고 이어진 것이죠. 그래서 전 길을 물어보는 외국인이 오면 대충 알아들으면 도와줄수 있지만 아닐수도 있기에 가장 먼저 i have not english라고 표현합니다. I cannot speaking english라고 일부러 쓰지 않는 이유입니다. 정형화된 로보트 언어를 거부합니다. 호텔 총지배인 따님께서 office 위치를 물으셨을때도 ah~ office? come on 하니까 웃더라구요. 한국어도 표준어가 매해 만들어지고 수정되고 있거든요. 이러한 노력은 전 세계에 필요하다고 생각해요.
    You are kind.
    Are you kind? need change to you are kind? 한국은 너는 친절해와 너는친절해?가 뒤 끝의 억양이 올라가는 차이일뿐 같다. 이것은 소모적인 문법과 문장을 만들지 않게 하고 더 많은 어휘를 늘리는데 집중하도록 한다.

      @rajesh That's true. The starting wages of Indian Engineers haven't increased since the past 10 years even though the economy has doubled. This is because of high unemployment among Engineers so companies are artificially keeping wages low as they always have option of hiring somebody who is desperate for a job and willing to work for peanuts. Hence the life of Engineers during their early careers really suck in this country and it gets worse because of inflation. This is just one sector of the economy getting affected due to high unemployment.

      Too many people..... Too less jobs

    • The Engineer Guy
      The Engineer Guy 25 days ago

      It depends on the skills needed for the work. You won't earn much if you are doing jobs that are easier to do or less in demand. The best example is subsistence farming despite heavy work involved you are still producing rice/wheat , which has a less selling price but it would be a different story if you sold cash crops like rubber or almonds.

      @Debarghaya Mukherjee You are 50 percent right but it is the MPs in UK who are preventing Brexit ,not the European Union. Europe has agreed to a deal with Borris Johnson a month ago and earlier with Theresa May. But the UK MPs reject the deal everytime due to political reasons. EU is not preventing Brexit, it's UK who is not able to do BREXIT. Also the Ireland border situation is a important factor. Do your research.
      It's not simple as one country being afraid of other.
