30th anniversary get-together party for class of 1989 of Peking University

Today the get-together party is held in Beijing for the undergraduates of Peking University who got admitted 30 years ago. Class of 1989 in China means the students entering college in 1989 while the year is referred to the graduation year in US. I guess the reason is that it is much more difficult to get admitted to than to graduate from college in China, especially a good one and in the old days. So it is quite an achievement and warrants the use of the entering year for the class. It is the opposite in US.

I am in the same class although not celebrating together with them today. My best wishes to the whole class from overseas. I spent five years, part of the best years of my life, with these brilliant young people. I cherish every moment of those years. I can not help reminiscing about old times while watching the photos and videos my classmates have shared.

Here is the link of the song for the 30th anniversary “Hu Bu Gui” made and sung by two of our classmates:

[胡不归]  北大89级同学30年聚会   作词:王芳    作曲:刘森、袁剑松   演唱:袁剑松

The lyrics:

那一湖春水,还在你眼里斑斓吗?
那一地银杏叶,还在你心底金黄吗?
那一些日子,还在你眉间紧锁吗?
那一些同学啊,还在你血管汹涌吗?

1989啊,夜雨剪春韭,
2019啊,新炊间黄粱。
1989啊,夕别君未婚,
2019啊,儿女忽成行。

这一个夏天,就在远方呼唤啊。
这一抹相思,就在云中闪耀啊,闪耀啊!
这一群老小孩,只要相逢就好啊。
这一种深情,只是今生难忘啊。

1989啊,人生初相见,
2019啊,世事两茫茫。
1989啊,参商各天际,
2019啊,惊呼热中肠。

1989春天,悠悠去了,
2019秋天,慢慢来了。
1989春天,我们出发,
2019秋天,我们归来。

As a research professor at Notre Dame, I share my ideas and thoughts mainly about mirror matter theory and open science on this blog. Under the new theory, we live in the universe with a mirror (hidden) sector of particles. A perfectly imperfect (minimally broken) mirror symmetry is the key to unlock the beauty and elegance of our universe.
