十次掌声,一个北大MBA学子在印度最牛管理学院的演讲

时间:2018-02-23

张晔,北京大学光华管理学院2016级MBA学生。2017年12月6日,他作为北大光华第一个去印度的交换生,踏上了人生中最长的一次背井离乡之旅。

启程前他在朋友圈这样描述了自己的心情,“明天将启程最长的背井离乡之旅,一把年纪了还折腾自己,只为对世界充满好奇的心。很荣幸有机会作为北大光华第一个去印度交换的学生,去拜访这个神秘的邻居,一个学期(3个月)的课程,希望能了解一种文化,去几个地方,学一些知识,认识几个好朋友。”

为什么会选择去印度交换?他是这样说的——

“首先,印度的GDP增长常年稳居大国第二,5+%,只是被中国的光芒掩盖了,注意的人不多。其次,同样是人口大国,印度的人口结构可比中国好多了,于是我们被倒逼产业升级,而印度的人口红利正当时,说不定过几年就接棒成为全球增长点了呢。我想即使政治宗教对经济发展掣肘,存在诸多弊端,但一定还是存在很多机会的,而我们由于政治原因对邻居了解浅薄,我希望通过自己的双眼去验证这一切。”

3个月的时间他看到了、学到了、验证了什么?显然不只是印度道路的拥挤与混乱,“机场高速出来就两公里,后面都是这种破路,车并不多,纯属是路窄,三轮,电动车,行人搅合在一起堵的。50公里走两个多钟头了。”

也不只是印度对中华文化的陌生,见证学校主楼倒挂的书法作品——

他还看到了印度人优美的舞蹈,听到了印度各种的方言,感受了异国他乡庆生真诚的祝福。他参加各种运动、通宵的圣诞晚会,也和印度同学打牌娱乐。他游览班加罗尔城堡、皇城迈索尔,在喜来登跳着印度舞跨年,回宿舍放生枕边的巨型蜘蛛。他利用课闲时间体验了解印度的医疗体系,亲自挂号看病,花钱和医生聊天。

课堂上,他欣喜于经济学教授对中国经济增长的赞美以及未来中文的意义,也发言陈述谷歌退出中国市场的前因后果,还深入研究网络中立。现代经济课上,他当面指出教授有关中国电子商务的数据错误;国际商务课上,他提醒老师地图上台湾和大陆的颜色应该相同。

他在校内外广交朋友,了解他人的同时也更清楚地认识自己,认识中国。

带着对世界的好奇心,3个月的时间内显然他已经得到了很多。学期即将结束的时刻,老师特意给他留下时间,做了最后一次讲演,与师生告别。十次掌声,九次欢笑,还有几位同学的泪水——


My last speech in IIMB

The time we have together always feels too short. I have almost finished one term at IIMB and I want to take this opportunity to share some of my insights, feelings, and observations from the past three months here.

相聚的时光总是短暂的,转眼间,我在IIMB交换的一个学期就要过去了。临别之际,我想把这三个月的一些体会分享给你们。


As the first Chinese exchange student from Peking University, I am proud of taking the chance to study at the BEST management college in India. It has been my pleasure to meet and learn from such great professors and study alongside such gifted classmates. As what you are listening right now, my English is poor and I can’t always make myself understood. However, I am lucky to had so much help and understanding from both you, my fellow exchange students, and the greater IIM-Bangalore Community. Your support and friendship has helped us bridge tremendous cultural differences and backgrounds. I will never forget what the surprise you planned for me on my birthday. Truly, that moment was unforgettable, looking around the square and seeing so many different faces from different places celebrating together.

作为第一个来自北京大学的中国交换生,我很骄傲能有机会来印度最好的管理学院学习生活(掌声),聆听这么棒的教授的课程,结识这么优秀的你们(掌声),但正如你们现在所听到的,我的英语很烂(笑),而且我们有文化的差异,并不是总能和你们自如的交流,但我很幸运的得到了如此多的帮助和理解,无论是我亲爱的交换生同学,还是印度管理研究院班加罗尔的师生们。你们的友情和支持,帮我们架起了跨越文化和背景巨大鸿沟的桥梁(掌声)。还记得我生日那晚大家给我的惊喜(笑),看着那么多来自不同地区的笑脸,一起在广场上庆祝,感动于你们对我真挚的友情和祝福,那一晚我将永生难忘。


I made three wishes before I came here. First – I wished to learn, to be a student, soaking up new knowledge. Second – I wished to explore, to be experience new and different cultures, ways of thinking, and living. Third – I wished to make friends, because what adventure would be worth it if you had no one to share it with? Three months have been passed away, today I am proud to say, I have made all the wishes come true. I made friends in the class, at basketball, on the badminton court, there was someone who explained the local culture during the special dinners. There were others who taught me dancing on H and J block’s party. There were still someone else, who taught me about the Indian markets out in Bangalore’s awesome cafes and bars. The friends I’ve made here have been my greatest fortune—from my fellow exchange students to my Indian classmates to our respectable professors.

还记得我来之前曾许下的三个愿望,第一,学一些知识,作为学生,汲取新的养分,第二,了解一些文化,去探索和体会新奇而迥异的印度文化,第三,交几个好朋友,没有朋友分享的旅程是不完美的。在三个月之后的今天,我骄傲的说,我的愿望都实现了(掌声),我在课堂上认识朋友,我在篮球场和羽毛球场上结识同伴,在节日的特殊晚宴上有人给我讲解文化,在H 和J block的party上有人教我跳舞(笑),在咖啡厅和酒吧里,有人和我交流中国和印度的市场经验。朋友是我最大的财富,这包括本地的同学,我们国际小队里的同学,校园内的工作人员,当然还有我们敬爱的教授们。(掌声)


I have to admit, I’ve fallen in love with Indian music and Indian beer. Every time I look at you dance under the lights with that awesome music, I don't want to blink, I hope this beautiful picture could engraved in my mind. Because I know I can listen to Indian music and remember this moment when I am missing you after I return to China.

不得不承认我爱上了印度的音乐和啤酒(笑),每次看着你们在灯光下,音乐中翩翩起舞,我都不愿眨眼睛,我希望把这美好的画面印刻在我的脑海中,我希望在我回到中国,思念你们的时候,可以听听当时的音乐就回忆起这一刻。(欢呼和长时间的掌声)


There is one thing I must ask your forgiveness for—and I can’t apologize enough…Although I say hello to you, my classmates, every day and I get warm greetings in return, I still cannot recall everyone’s names clearly. There is an old Chinese saying, “first time strangers, second time friends,” I hope you can communicate through more and let me remember you.

不过有件事情我要请你们原谅,有些同学我们每天热情的打招呼问候,聊天,但我可能还不能背下来你的名字(笑),我们中国有句古话叫:一回生二回熟,我希望你能通过更多的和我交流让我记住你。(掌声)


I flew 5000 kilometers over the Tibetan plateau and the Himalayas to meet you here, to know India, and I’ve been fortunate enough to bring my experiences to you, both as Max, a human, and Max, a Chinese citizen. In the past three months, I hope the information from me could help you if only a tiny bit, understand more about my country and the people there. I sincerely hope that my behavior does not make you dislike China, and you still want to visit there.

我飞行5000KM,穿过青藏高原和喜马拉雅山,只为来遇见你(笑),了解印度,同时也把中国的信息带给你们,我希望在过去的三个月里,我的发言对你们有所帮助哪怕只是一点点,能够更多的了解我的国家和人民,我也诚挚的希望我在这里的言行举止没有使你们产生对中国的厌恶(笑着说NO),仍然愿意去那里看看。


Both China and India are hugely important developing countries. Indeed, the future of the two countries moving together and cooperating will determines our globe’s future. I believe that one day we will eliminate political misunderstanding, hand in hand, and infinite cooperation may exist between you and me.

中国和印度同为发展中的大国,这两个国家未来的举动决定着世界的进程(临场发挥了一下,笑着对美国同学说,“你不介意吧?“观众们笑),我相信终有一天我们会消除政治上的误解,携手并进,而你我之间存在着无限的合作可能。(掌声)


My President Xi Jinping once said in the speech: “A relationship based on interest will terminate when the interest expires; A relationship based on power will be abandoned when the power is lost; Only the relationship based on heart will enable an ever-lasting friendship.” Three months is a short time, but we have been able to meet with our hearts, and I believe our friendship will be ever-lasting.

我们的习主席在演讲时曾说过:以利相交,利尽则散,以权相交,权失则弃,唯以心相交,方能成其久远。(长时间掌声)三个月虽然短暂,但我们以心相交,我们的友谊将地久天长。(掌声)


Our last day here will be sad and for some of you, it might be the last time we see one another. Though it might be a bit, I promise to drink and dance with you all over again when I come back to India. And, please know that you are all cordially invited to China, Beijing in particular. I promise to show you the best of what Beijing has to offer, from food to sights to me! Thank you again for the fun, the friendships, and the memories. I love you guys.

离别的那天,一定是伤感的,因为对有些人来说,这一别也许就是永别,当然我下次有机会来印度的时候,一定会再和你们一起喝酒跳舞,同时也请你们知道,欢迎大家来中国,来北京,我会带你们去了解北京最棒的地方,美食,美景,还有我(笑)。再次感谢你们带给我的欢乐,友谊,和回忆。我爱你们!(欢呼和长时间的掌声)
