At that time, beggar’s pants were already popular, but growing up in the countryside of northern Jiangsu, we didn’t know the situation in big cities, I remember my 92-year-old father went to Shanghai school to see me, we ate together in the cafeteria, when a fashionable female student was wearing beggar pants, eating at the next table, my father quietly said to me, look at people’s families are very poor, there are so many holes in their pants, there is no money to make up, you have to refuel.

My father’s words inspired me deeply, and it was not easy to go to college at that time.
