Some people are trapped in a trough and depressed ever since. Some people have been severely injured repeatedly and are still reborn from the ashes.
Years of hard life failed to shake Deng Xiaoping’s original intention to contribute to the country even the slightest. With the grand vision of his homeland in mind, he is quietly and in full bloom in JiangxiXinjian County far away from Beijing.
Under the influence of patience and perseverance, he finally lived up to the expectations, made a comeback, and led the new China towards an epic tomorrow.
Jiangxi was criticized and exiled
In the 1960s, a critical revolutionary wave was violent Swept all parts of China.
On April 1, 1967, Deng Xiaoping was severely criticized and was called”the other largest capitalist in the party Those in power on the road of ism”.
The subsequent remarks were like a bloody storm, destroying almost all his glory and glory before. Deng Xiaoping was also removed from all party positions.
But he has never given up and contributed to the future of New China. He frequently wrote letters in an attempt to repair his relationship with Mao Zedong.
In the letter, he repeatedly mentioned:“My biggest The hope is to stay in the party and be an ordinary party member” and sincere loyalty:” I request that I be assigned a small job when possible, take part in some labor within my capacity, and give me a chance to rehabilitate.”
But due to the strong resistance of Jiang Qing, Chen Boda, and Kang Sheng, he failed to meet the chairman for a long time.
Faced with all the accusations against Deng Xiaoping, Mao Zedong’s evaluation is full of old feelings and softness. He believes that Deng Xiaoping made great contributions to the War of Resistance Against Japan and Liberation, and he was very loyal to the party. It is better to keep his party membership, even if he is responsible for some simple work of sorting materials, it is also very good.
It is this line of leeway left by Mao Zedong that made the new China Future growth and take-off.
Deng Xiaoping had been at the bottom of his life for two years. On October 22, 1969, he received an order that looked like bad news.
In order to stabilize the sharp armed conflict with the Soviet border, the navy, land and air forces have entered a state of emergency combat readiness. According to the needs of preparations for war, the central government decided to evacuate some people from Beijing. Deng Xiaoping’s name is among them.
“Comrade Xiaoping, next you will go to Jiangxi to work and receive re-education. This is an order issued by the central government. Someone will arrange for you to be there soon. Housing and transportation in Jiangxi.”
“Can I see the chairman again before leaving Beijing?”
“You can write to Wang Dongxing, Director of the General Office, and he will tell you Forwarded to the chairman.”
After hearing the instructions, Deng Xiaoping’s expression was calm, but there was a wave in his heart. The melancholy of not going.
Before leaving, he wrote a heartfelt message to Mao Zedong:
“I promise to learn from the workers, peasants and soldiers in the work I can. I will use Mao Zedong Thought to transform my worldview, start from scratch, and be a new man.” strong>
After writing this last stroke, he cleaned up his clothes in a very short time, and brought his wife Zhuo Lin and stepmother Xia Bergen , Boarded the dark car rushing to the airport.
As the pale gray wings rushed towards the plumb sky, Beijing became a little smaller, cutting through Deng Xiaoping’s worries. Item.
This way, I don’t know when I can return to the flight.
Life is simple and thoughtful
Under Zhou Enlai’s proper arrangement, the three of Deng Xiaoping moved into Xinjian County, Jiangxi. Everyday life thereafter is the two-point line between the tractor workshop and the home.
Early every morning, Deng Xiaoping and his wife Zhuo Lin walk to the tractor repair factory on foot, where they work hard.
The politicians who stood in the clouds in the past have turned into ordinary fitters. And Deng Xiaoping did not have the slightest grievance. A boring action, in return he repeated it carefully thousands of times.
The true identity of Deng Xiaoping, like an unannounced secret, spread among the workers. In order to take care and protect the wandering Deng Xiaoping family, local people built a small road for them to ensure adequate concealment and safety during the hike.
The indescribable warmth overflowed in Deng Xiaoping’s chest. And his mixed thoughts are like complicated waves in this simple daily life, turbulent and unstoppable.
How can the country restore a stable social order after the turmoil?
How should diplomacy between China and Western countries unfold?
Who can take on the great achievements made by Mao Zedong?
Where will China’s future go?
These major entangled issues have entangled Deng Xiaoping’s soul day and night. So the ashtray is full of charred cigarette butts, only the stars and the moon are accompanied by the long night of insomnia.
When he learned that his son Deng Pufang was paralyzed by the persecution, Deng Xiaoping’s tired nerves were overwhelmed and he fainted while building. In the factory.
After being fed a bowl of brown sugar water by his wife, Deng Xiaoping’s eyes opened again. The caring faces of the workers leaped into his field of vision. At this moment, the beating heart of the humanity was contending, and he gained the power of rebirth.
Even if setbacks and hardships are shrouded in a family of mutual comfort like a shadow, it still cannot defeat Deng Xiaoping’s firm belief that the light will eventually shine on China. China will surely overcome the cold of the long night and usher in a brand-new honor.
He put aside his attachment to the irreversible things in the past, and focused on looking forward. At the same time, he still maintains the habit of regular work and rest:work in the morning, walk in the evening, read books before going to bed; In my spare time, I read current affairs in the newspaper and listen to radio broadcasts.
Deng Xiaoping’s perseverance and waiting gave birth to an optimistic and open-minded feeling. As a result, countless extremely transformative ideas were conceived in the process of walking around the western-style building in circles; in this quiet place far away from political disputes, they sprouted quietly.
Lin Biao’s downfall came for the first time
In the autumn of 1971, patters of rain poured down the gloomy sky. An airplane that crashed in Inner Mongolia, like a violent hurricane, set off a wave of domestic public opinion.
“Lin Biao and his wife fled to the Soviet Union overnight with a few of their followers. The plane crashed in Inner Mongolia halfway, and no one survived…”
Deng Pufang, who learned of this sensational change on the radio, changed his face immediately and informed the news as soon as possible father.
At this moment, Deng Xiaoping’s knuckles trembling slightly. The tide of old things swept through his quiet eyes.
In the 1950s, Lin Biao and Deng Xiaoping were like two rising stars in the sky, and Mao Zedong regarded them as the most promising successors. However, because of their different political opinions, the two of them are not in harmony, and they are drifting away from each other.
Nowadays, Deng Xiaoping’s chest is like a heavy weight when he hears of the treason by Mao Zedong’s infinite hope. The mountain cannot be calm for a long time.
Worries are surrounded by mountains, and Deng Xiaoping, who is concerned about the political situation of the country, is heavily surrounded. He couldn’t help thinking, Mao Zedong has entered his old age, who will shoulder the historical heritage created by this great man?
How to maintain a stable political situation and then select qualified successor leaders is an important issue that cannot be ignored at the moment.
Thinking lightly, in a blink of an eye, it’s already midwinter. The news of Lin Biao’s downfall was like flying snow, drifting between the turbulent days and rising, and finally fell like a feather to Xinjian County in Jiangxi.
That night, Deng Xiaoping and his wife received an order to go to the canteen of the repair factory and listen to the notice of important central documents.
“Expanding the notice of Lin Biao’s treason and fleeing the country——”
When this word was spoken by the factory leader, the workers under the stage looked at each other, and their whispers filled the space for a while.
Deng Xiaoping and his wife, who were sitting in the front row, looked at each other, and both saw the complexity in each other’s eyes.
In the next two hours, Lin Biao’s many crimes circulated in the ears of the workers at the meeting. Even if Deng Xiaoping’s hearing has deteriorated due to age, he can still read the frustration of every syllable from the lips of the reciter.
They are like heavy hammers, hitting the tympanic membrane and heart cavity, accompanied by the violent wind, and abraded countless mottled Holes, scars, and even more unreasonable expectations.
After the meeting, Deng Xiaoping and Zhuo Lin walked side by side on this winding road in silence.
When I returned to my room, the pungent nicotine and sleep aid drugs could no longer calm Deng Xiaoping’s mood.
Is this day finally waiting?
Deng Xiaoping is unclear whether Lin Biao’s defection will bring a long-awaited turnaround in his political career .
The cold north wind beats the window ridges, and the moon is like frost, thinly drying on the simple work table On the case.
The old man sitting on the wooden chair furrowed his eyebrows and hesitated again and again. Finally, he mustered his courage and picked up the pen. Write these words one word at a time on the soft yellow letter paper:
“This incident happened very suddenly, and I was very shocked and indignant. I followed the Chairman’s instructions and worked hard to reform myself through labor and study. I personally There is no requirement, I just hope that one day I can still do some work for the party, so that I have the opportunity to make up for the accident in the hard work.”
The dim light bulb burned till dawn, and this letter to Zhongnanhai seemed to sink into the ocean without any response.
Chen Yi passed away and hopes to reappear
Time is faint, but winter is not over. On January 6, 1972, the news of Chen Yi’s death shook the Central Plains glacier that had not yet melted.
Chen Yi has outstanding military service and was awarded the rank of marshal. In 1969, he and Deng Xiaoping were evacuated from Beijing in the same batch. A long and long life was finally devastated by illness.
Xiao Xiao withered leaves all over the western suburbs of BeijingBabaoshan, in the evening breeze mixed with ashes, Mao Zedong appeared at Chen Yi’s memorial service.
This is Mao Zedong’s first public appearance after Lin Biao’s crash. His thin pajamas were covered with only a gray coat. Working day and night, the corners of his eyes and brows were inevitably stained with vicissitudes of life. He looked solemn and bowed respectfully, offering Chen Yi silent remembrance and melancholy.
“Chen Yi I am a good comrade.”
Mao Zedong looked at the black and white portraits of former comrades in arms, so he said. The past and the old man’s face swept past his sick body in a flash. One person suddenly occupied the wave of his memories.
Lin Biao’s mistakes must be corrected. Many old cadres have suffered too much. It’s time for them to come back…
Thinking about this, Mao Zedong, who was surrounded by the crowd, took a breath and lingered over the tears of Chen Yi’s family one by one. The words have profound meaning:“Deng Xiaoping belongs to the contradictions among the people and has no historical problems. He is the party and the I have contributed…”
Standing aside, Zhou Enlai keenly grabbed this sentence The core and essence of words.
As a close friend, why didn’t Zhou Enlai want to let Deng Xiaoping come back and preside over the overall situation again? He was about to spread Mao Zedong’s attitude, hoping to bring a ray of light to Deng Xiaoping, who had been living in Jiangxi.
At this time, Deng Xiaoping slowly put down his”People’s Daily“, birds croak outside the window, infiltrating Jiangxi in the dim twilight, and the noise of people is faint.
His eyes are condensed like a torch to the branches of the old branches and the unseen buds will be exposed, and his heart is as if this is about to come. The coming of spring is stunned in the eye sockets, writhing in the bones and blood.
Chen Yi and him share a very similar destiny, which undoubtedly evokes his unspeakable sympathy. Mao Zedong’s affirmation, and his feelings and hearings introduced from the far north, further inspired his infinite vision for the future destiny.
other products Out of the chairman’s desire to reconcile, he felt Zhou Enlai’s sincere entrustment, and he also saw an unstoppable turnaround in the current political situation.
But Deng Xiaoping has been criticized and criticized fiercely after all, and his comeback is even more difficult.
In the following months, Deng Xiaoping still actively contacted Beijing. He received a clear response to his family’s exhausting request.
In April and May of this year, his son Deng Zhi and daughter Deng Rong were allowed to enter the school reading. The wages of him and his wife Zhuo Lin have also returned to their original levels.
For the next three months, there was no central audio.
It was already in the sweltering heat, and the sound of cicadas ran across the dry air. Sweat soaked through Deng Xiaoping’s clothes, he wiped off the beads of sweat hanging between his eyebrows and lifted the penholder again.
In the letter, he self-reviewed his mistakes and sincerely thanked Mao Zedong for his long-term protection. At the end, he emphasized:“I affirm again my assurance to the central government and never reverse the case. I just want to serve the people again. Do something.”
This is the word of sincerity and selflessness for the country The letter dispelled all Mao Zedong’s worries and knocked on the door for Deng Xiaoping to return to Beijing.
A few times in the Spring and Autumn Period, I wasted back to Beijing
February 20, 1973, Deng Xiaoping said goodbye to the workers who had been with each other for three years in the repair factory and set foot on the train back to Beijing with his family.
Deng Xiaoping sat silently in the cabin, frame after frame of the scene of Jiangxi retreating quickly, but he slashed. Frozen in his pupils like an axe, sinking deeper.
Xianjian County, Jiangxi Province, will serve as a mirror of his history, which will always remain in his soul.
The water stream sweeps away the scars of the years, while the scenery is scattered but the ice is separated. One month later, in Zhongnanhai, the red sun was flat and the spring breeze was gentle.
One study room, surrounded by two old people. The tea stems rotate in the porcelain cup, silently stretching in the opposite view. Mao Zedongsuo patrolled the old friend engraved with wind and frost in front of him, and broke the silence first:“How are the past few years?”style="color:F04142; --tt-darkmode-color:F04142;">” span>
Deng Xiaoping’s ten fingers form a tower, overlapping on the knees. In an instant, there seemed to be boundless water mist accumulated into his bright black eyes. After Liang Sun, his face was calm, with only a gentle smile on his lips:“Waiting.”
The two great men looked at each other and smiled. Only this glance, gentle and ice released the wasting time and space. At this moment, history has made the right choice.
