Cigarettes lie on flowers near a billboard featuring a portrait of the late Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping in Shenzhen, China February 18, 2007. The huge billboard of Deng presides over an intersection in the heart of Shenzhen, part shrine, part tourist attraction and part ad for market reforms. Hundreds visit each day. A few bring flowers. Everyone poses for pictures. For those without cameras, 20 yuan ($2.58) buys two snapshots of yourself, printed and laminated on the spot -- one before the Deng billboard, and one facing the other way with Shenzhen's skyscrapers in the background. Deng died 10 years ago on Monday and while his ongoing reform era has been headlined by shrinking poverty and strong economic growth, rifts between rich and poor, the wealthy east and the remote west, have grown, and with them social unrest.
