The world may be obsessed with Chindia, the concomitant rise of Asia's two superpowers. But in Hong Kong, the two ethnic communities are as separated as ever, rarely talking or interacting with each other. A new book aims to promote better cross-cultural experience and understanding. The local Chinese author of My Husband is Indian, who has only identified herself as Cat, met Bitto in Lan Kwai Fong. 'I had dreamed about Prince Charming when I was a young girl,' she wrote. 'Then Bitto showed up. He wasn't exactly what I had in mind. 'I loved to party and he made me laugh. Before we knew it, we were seeing each other every day.' After five years of marriage, Cat said she wouldn't have it any other way. The book project started with an RTHK television series tracking couples from different ethnic and religious backgrounds. But Cat and Bitto said their five years of being together were too condensed by the TV series and too much was left unsaid. 'Cultural differences, race discrimination - these are only states of mind ... If you meet a lot of Indians, you realise they are just like a lot of Chinese.' Sounds like a bittersweet book. My Husband is Indian (HK$59) is available at most Chinese-language bookstores.
