The spirit of internationalism between China and India

Spirit of Dr. Kotnise is the humanitarian spirit of saving the dying and healing the wounded, the heroic spirit of struggle and sacrifice, and more importantly, the spirit of internationalism that advocates peace and friendship and a common future, he said.

“Today is May 4th Youth Day in China. Young people from China and India are full of vigor and vitality. They are the main force for the development of our two countries,” Qin said, adding that “we must contribute to our people-to-people exchanges and mutually beneficial cooperation so that the friendship between China and India is passed down from generation to generation.

Dr. Kotnis, who hailed from Sholapur in Maharashtra, came to China in 1938 as part of a five-member team of doctors sent by the Indian National Congress to help the Chinese people during World War II.

He later joined the Communist Party of China (CPC) in 1942 and died the same year at the age of 32.

His medical help during the difficult days of the Chinese revolution was appreciated by Chinese leader Mao Zedong. His status and monuments were also placed in some Chinese cities in recognition of his services.

He was married to Chinese national Guo Qinglan, who died in 2012. A bronze statue of Kotnis, known in China as Ke Dihua, was unveiled at Shijiazhuang Medical College in September 2020.

In addition to the school named after him as Shijiazhuang Ke Dihua Middle Specialized Medical School, Kotnis memorials exist both in Shijiazhuang, the capital of Hebei Province, and in Tangxian County, where he once worked.
