Rao Pingru  饶平如 was born in Nanchang, Jiangxi Province in Southeastern China.



He joined the National Revolutionary Army.




He married Meitang.


He was sent to rehabilitation in the countryside, Anhui Province.



Rehabilitated, he was an editor in a medical journal.


On the death of his wife, who was very affected, he decided to write down in words


and drawings, all their memories in common, to make the past known to his children


and grandchildren. These albums classified by year, which were intended for the family


circle will soon make around China, because one of his granddaughters posted one


of his watercolors on Weibo, the Chinese twiter. A Chinese publisher then asked him


to make a book out of it.


He lives in the apartment of one of his sons in the suburbs of Shanghai.
