People dressing in traditional costumes worship the portrait of Qu Yuan, a patriotic poet during the Warring States period (475 B.C.-221 B.C.), in Nanjing, capital of east China's Jiangsu Province, June 4, 2011. Chinese traditional Dragon Boat Festival, or Duanwu Festival, falls on June 6 this year, which is held to pay homage to Qu Yuan who drowned himself to protest his fatuous king. (Xinhua/Han Yuqing)
