Hunan: Home of Chinese Celebrities

The province of Hunan has nurtured many famous historical figures-from Emperor Yan who created the culture and history of south China to Mao Zedong, founder of the People's Republic of China; from the poet states man Qu Yuan who dedicated his life to his country to Wei Yuan who advocated "studying enemy technology to use against the enemy;" from Cai Lun who in vented the world's first paper to Yuan Longping, the "father of hybrid rice".
All are inheritors of the Hunanese spirit of patriotism and innovation-an influence on China's past, an influence on its present. They are like bright stars at night, sparkling in the sky of history, an inspiration to all both now and for the future. Be low these resplendent skies, now as ever, Hunan continues to perpetuate their spirit.
