He came out of a stormy February night. Two large eyes glared at me through the darkness of my rain-drenched cabin Window and in the gleam oflighting, I saW a large brown body and hugejaws. I feared it was a lion. I had gone to British Columbia, on the Pacific Coast of Canada, to write a novel. For seven months I had lived all alone in my wooden cabin. Scared, I slowly backed into the kitchen for my torch and an axe. I shone the torch through the window to find myself facing a large black and brown dog, his tail wagging wildly. I opened the door slightly and he rushed into the room, bringing pools of water, ‘oing half-mad with delight. In spite of his big head he was very thin. The bones showeu through his coat. But the lookin his eyes said more clearly than any words that he was hungry. I gave him all the meat I could find in the kitchen. Then he spent the next two hours finding different ways to thank me; whining, burying his wet head in my lap, pawing at mylegs, reacting to my every look or movement. Everytime I looked up from my work, his deep brown eyes were on me, and his tail thumped the floor. So that night in 1967, Booto, the wild dog from forests, came into my lonely life.

During Mao Zedong’s rule in the 1960s the Chinese fought a fierce but futile battle against the ‘Sihan’ — the four parts of rats, bed bugs, flies and mosquitoes which have plagued the country for centuries. Now Beijing has declared a nation wide war against the ‘Liuhai’, the six evils of prostitution, pornography, abduction and trading of women and children, drug trafficking, gambling, and profiteering from superstition. Public Security Minister, Wang Fang, explained that those social ills “have seriously polluted society, disturbed public order and undermined the physical and mental health of a vast number of people, especially the youth”.

China's guardians of public order have not exactly been lax. Supreme, Court Vice President, Lin Zhum, revealed last month thatfrom 1983 to 1988 Chinese courtarts punished 89.500 criminals for committing one of the six evils. Of these, 3142 were given sentences of death or life imprisonment. An additional 11,000 were arrested inthe first nine months of this year. But of course, the evi] persists.

Said a Chinese social scientist “The more prosperous and free we become the more evils we face”.
