To start with, Professor Shen, could you say a little about your early years and your family? I was born in Wujiang in Zhejiang province in 1937. Later, at the age of 11, my family moved to Suzhou. I am one of four, with an older sister and older brother and a younger brother. My older sister and younger brother are now in Hangzhou, and my older brother is in Suzhou.
