In the Western Lake farm, my family have experienced "a gum tree, the three generation rubber man story. From the growth of a small rubber tree, witnessed the motherland's thriving and prosperous process.
In the early days of the founding of new China, China decided to cultivate natural rubber in Hainan and Western guangdong. Guangdong farms and farms came into being, and all kinds of personnel (personnel) were also deployed to build. My father served as mayor Luxiang Mei was 20 years old, early, valiant and heroic in bearing. So he was transferred to the lake farm.
At the time of the lake farm, founded in 1952, originally owned by the City Commission for the management of effect after the return to Zhanjiang Bureau of reclamation. 1956 was officially named the state Huguang farm, was renamed the production and construction corps. My father is the last century in 50s to the state Huguang farm workers led rubber plantation. When the farm is located in remote areas, no human habitation, traffic inconvenience, living conditions are very difficult. My father led the workers under the care of a small and a rubber tree, also be river or water wells irrigation, and hard labor, for the new China construction contribute their youth and strength. It was a supply system, but my family was a big family, and our siblings, with mothers, grandparents and great grandmothers, had a hard life. So, in order to take care of my family's actual difficulties, the organization in 1958 transferred his father back to the county clothing factory (and then transferred to Wuchuan county power plant), when the factory director, began his other career.
In 1970, I graduated from high school in Wuchuan county. My father said to me: "I youth reclamation rubber business has not been completed, you can go to the farm." So, I went to the lake farm call. Soon the Huguang farm was renamed the Guangzhou military production and Construction Corps seventh division sixth regiment. When I saw my father planted a small rubber seedlings, now has grown into a row of strong towering rubber forest, heart with emotion. I was determined to do something like my father did. Our morning wearing a headlamp tapping, evening water shower rubber seedling. In the days of the general assembly, I dug rubber holes with the Corps comrades in the day, and in the evening they were on the wooden boxes nailed to the wooden plates to learn the oil lamps. In a canvas shed, we slept on the floor, listening to the sound of the strings of a distant bell. I didn't give up learning, and I learned actively about rubber after work. Hard work pays off, I finally passed into the Southern China Institute to participate in college entrance examination in 1979 (now South China University of Technology) Department of chemical engineering, rubber professional learning, after graduation assigned to work in Guangzhou rubber factory, as the director and chief engineer, become our second generation "rubber man".
In the winter of 2006, I and more than 100 year "energy-saving" to return to that place, see there is still a piece of neat black rubber tree, and the center built 6 six storey office building and staff housing, do not have a feeling! The society is developing; the sweat and toil of our time is not white; it is the hard work of generations that will make a beautiful tomorrow!
With time, the years of incense, suddenly came to 2012 in the spring, my nephew Yang Mingyue graduated from university to Zhanjiang municipal Party Committee Organization Department, was a place for him to consider, but is the most difficult Huguang farm. He called my advice, I without demur told him: "you go to Huguang farm who told you, Grandpa and uncle are" the people "." I have to emphasize he said: "now the motherland rubber industry had not your grandfather reclaim kind of rubber era, China's rubber industry not only to export products, but also the cultivation of the. If you have the chance, you should also strive to be a rubber man!"
My nephew would follow my advice, to when the deputy director in charge of the farm, planting and rubber import and export three times, also led to Thailand, the Cambodia Co rubber base. He was not afraid of the heat and the rain, hard work, outstanding achievements, so that my uncle was proud.
60 years ago my father came to Leizhou for a lower peninsula of rubber seedlings, through the middle of my generation "corps battle", and then to today's nephew generation to glue the history of Southeast Asian countries, these experiences highlight the motherland is thriving and prosperous, embodies the "The Belt and Road grand" initiative. I was in Guangdong reclamation in just more than 10 years to achieve, planted in a new Guangdong farm "ambition and pride! I'm proud of my three generation of rubber!
