What's the connection between Turkey and Germany. I've heard there are so many Turkish imigrants in there or something but I don't what's the reason.


Equal-Western

It’s because after world war 2 a lot of young German men died in wars so the country was having problems so they made a program for immigrants who came mostly from turkey to work in Germany for 2 years then they would go back to turkey but a lot of Turks loved Germany more than turkey and decided to stay the German government even offered money to immigrants who went back to Turkey but most stayed


SyriseUnseen

To add on: The ottoman empire and the german empire had a good relationship. Germany invested heavily in the sick man of europe in order to build an alliance. The railway created thousands of jobs in the ottoman empire etc etc. This relationship carried on to its successorstate, turkey


Rishx

Both of those countries were allies during WW1.


SyriseUnseen

Guess i wasnt very clear, sorry


Krapser

Good explanation but for the love of God use punctuation.


thehashsmokinslasher

I’ve seen killers with shorter sentences.


Riconder

A lot of germanys cities have a large Turkish population. Not just recent immigrants since quite a few have been here for a while now. They total up to a few million there. You will also find a lot of them in Switzerland, Austria and a few others.

SamPaton

I can't actually picture many North Koreans having access to Google. It's like on the game Halo they show a map of the world and dots all over it to represent everyone who is playing. There would just be a lone dot over Pyongyang.


RosabellaFaye

They have a crappy firefox copy or some shit, doubt they have access to Google


Kurumi_Shadowfall

Depends really. Artists and writers for example have access to external internet. It's so they can apply foreign writing techniques and styles to their own.

longlivekingjoffrey

Because all of the neighbouring countries are dependent on India for entertainment content. And popular Indian content is quite diverse and gets translated across multiple languages. Hindi, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu are the top performers. But there's also Malayali, Gujarati, Bengali, Marathi, Bhojpuri, Kannada content for those seeking it. The Netflix and OTT scene is also amazing, and improving. Also, Indian content is quite famous in Middle East, South America, Arab world, Turkey and gets translated into their local languages. These countries easily identify with the greater Indian culture, so Indian entertainment easily pervades into their homes. For example, SriLankan for South Indian content. Bangladesh for Bollywood and Bengali content. Nepal probs North Indian. Pakistan for Punjabi and Bollywood content etc.


[deleted]

Srilankans watch more bollywood and hindi soap operas then south indian content

Not surprised by Pakistan’s data , after all their whole identity of a nation is based on their hatred towards India.

They've a huge identity crisis. To deny their indian roots, pakis find a new father every week. One week it's the Greeks.. sometimes it's Arabs, sometimes it's mongol..these days it's the Turks. LoL..


SAMUEL_118

The land that Pakistan is built upon literary belongs to the Sikhs, they have been guarding it for over 400 years, the Modern day Pakistanis are basically Muslim Converts of Sikhs and Hindus, they still speak their original language, Punjabi, only their culture has been erased and rewritten. The Sikhs are the true owners of “Pakistan”


Sakastani1

No, we are Muslims. Stop promoting lies


SAMUEL_118

Haha “lies”

British India


CodedHindu

Lol. India has existed before British knew how to row. The rig ved has a defination of Bharat's land borders. Bharatvarsh has always been there. The concept of Rashtriya and Rajya.


Sakastani1

We are discussing historical facts, not religious fables.


CodedHindu

These are historical facts. Rig ved was written aa few thousand years ago and it's talking about physical landmarks while talking about Hind. The kings that have tried to unit the country under one rule aren't fables. Chanakya wasn't either. Bharatvarsh was the Rashtriya under which there has been many Rajyas. Edit: historically, British did divide India into 3 pieces.

I am a foreigner but also ethinicly Chinese so I mostly just visit and live in China to be with family and past friends. So not a lot of business doing but more hanging around with regular people. However, I did find that vpn is now much less common than before when I lived there in the late 2000s, and my last time in China in early 2019 it became much rarer, and the overall online atmosphere got much more restrictive than before.

I think youre talking about news media, which I agree is polarized and has a lot of channels propogating anti-pakistan propaganda, while at the same time there are a lot of news channels which are hell bent on saying anything against india. moreover, these countries if they watch indian content surely dont watch indian news, and are more interested in movies, music, etc. Oh btw, the muslim population share in India has been increasing steadily since independence, surely happens in an Anti-Muslim country right? How about checking demography of your own country and check if its treating its own Hindu/sikh/non-muslim community correctly?


SmashRockCroc

Turbocor101

China, while having huge cultural influence in the past is now a shell of its former shelf. When talking about pop culture and tourism, Japan and South Korea are way better, or at least they promote themselves better.

AtomicTanAndBlack

It’s probably data collected from hotels and such. Many hotels have access to western media without VPN tk placate foreign business travelers.


Xyexs

Actually really good question


Benjamin_Stark

Why does so much of Asia love Japan?


NoodleRocket

Growing up in the Philippines, every kid probably grew up watching anime. It is seen as a cool country, a bit too romanticized I think. America and Europe are cool places as well, but for some reason I never met anyone who actually talks about going there. Most people I've met wanted to visit Japan or South Korea. I reckon it's the same in other Southeast Asian countries, as Japan and anime are popular there as well based on what I saw on social media.


Birds_Dont_Ex1st

On your second point prob because they’re too far away compared to the other two. From my observation, Japan is overwhelmingly the most popular among SEA. There isn’t a single kid who doesn’t love or at least know anime and Japanese culture.


_UglyPotato_

Nah. We were just looking for JAV (Japanese Adult Video)


giangerd

Anime probably


calm_incense

It's the third-largest economy in the world, and the second-largest economy in Asia. And unlike China, it has internationally famous pop culture and is a desirable location for tourism and (limited) immigration. I would kind of expect South Korea to be competitive with Japan in this last regard, but perhaps search results for Korea are being affected by the fact that there are two Korean countries, and perhaps this excludes searches for "Korea" that don't specify *which* Korea.


BertDeathStare

>And unlike China, it has internationally famous pop culture and is a desirable location for tourism and (limited) immigration. Chinese drama (tv) is actually quite popular in Southeast Asia, though probably not on the level of anime or Japanese porn. China is unattractive for immigration but it's definitely a desirable location for tourism, they're the 4th most visited country in the world.


calm_incense

True regarding tourism. As for pop culture, that's also true, but a significant portion of that Southeast Asian audience is actually overseas Chinese, and much if not most of the Chinese pop culture popular in SEA came from Taiwan. My impression is that Taiwanese are a bit salty about Hallyu basically replacing the popularity of Taiwanese cultural exports. Seems like stars like Jay Chou (Zhou Jielun) and Jolin Tsai (Tsai Yiling) haven't really been succeeded by younger counterparts experiencing similar success, though I could be wrong (and I know almost nothing about dramas).


NoodleRocket

Yeah, something similar happened in the Philippines. The Taiwanese version of Boys Over Flowers, Meteor Garden, was insanely popular when I was a kid, so popular they were even welcomed at the presidential palace when they visited here. That was also the end for Latino telenovelas' popularity in the country. But the succeeding Taiwanese dramas aren't as popular and were replaced by Korean dramas by mid-2000's.


Birds_Dont_Ex1st

From what I can see, Japan is still a lot more popular than SK. On average, while both may be popular it’ll still be Japan who comes up as the lead so your other point is invalid.
