For a long time now I’ve been hearing and reading about Baidu and wanted to know what is the meaning exactly. As soon as I finished reading, the first thing that popped into my head was “Tangled”
The name Baidu is a quote from the last line of Xin Qiji‘s classical poem “Green Jade Table in The Lantern Festival” saying: “Having searched thousands of times in the crowd, suddenly turning back, She is there in the dimmest candlelight.”
The context of the poem is that in ancient China, girls had to stay indoors, and the Lantern Festival was one of the few times they could go outside. In the chaotic sea of lantern lights, they would sneak away to meet their lovers and exchange promises to meet again next year.
A summary of the entire poem: Flowers bursting into bloom in the sky, stars falling like rain (fireworks/meteor shower), Whole streets filled with perfume, jeweled horses pulling ornate carriages, fish and dragon lanterns dancing throughout the entire night. A body decorated with golden thread and butterfly trinket, laughter that has a subtle fragrance. Having searched for this person until exhaustion, when suddenly turning back by chance, I find her standing lonely in the far end of the street in the waning light.
