British rock band Coldplay's latest music video has triggered a debate
in India over its portrayal of the country with critics accusing its
producers of showing stereotypical images of India with Hindu holy men,
peacocks and colorful festivals.
Coldplay featured Beyonce in their Super Bowl half-time show Sunday, but they didn't perform their new collaboration, "Hymn for the Weekend."
Chinese flocked to temples and fairs to pray for good health and fortune on Monday, the first day of the Lunar New Year.
In Beijing, hundreds of thousands of people visited traditional fairs held in parks, as well as Buddhist and Taoist temples offering singing and dance performances and open-air markets selling handicrafts.
