But Chen stands by the train station as a reminder of one of the most dangerous features to develop on China’s socio-political landscape: the growing chasm between rich and poor in the world’s seventh-biggest economy.

Persistent in China’s countryside, against the backdrop of fast growing cities, has sparked social unrest in some spots and elicited sympathy from the wider populace.
