From Japan, a museum of peace built on memories of WWII

The last of these battles was fought at Red Hill, where the Japanese War Memorial was built in 1944 to mark the 50th anniversary of the battle.“While Imphal Peace Museum is a living memory of the tragic war, I sincerely hope that it will be a bridge to connect the past and the future for a lasting peaceful world for all times to come,” said Yohei Sasakawa, chairman of the Nippon Foundation that funded the museum. The 80-year-old Mr. Sasakawa recalled the suffering of war when he survived the Tokyo air raid in March 1945. He said that worst sufferers of in the Battle of Imphal were the local people who had little or nothing to do with the war.Diaries donatedHitoshi Tsuchiya, 64, was lucky to see his father Denkichi Tsuchiya who returned to Japan after the war. Mr. Hitoshi paid his first visit to Manipur with his son Jumpei to donate the diaries and other memorabilia of his father to the Imphal Peace Museum. Dominic Asquith, British High Commissioner to India, said, “This museum symbolises the reconciliation between Japan and Britain and Japan and India. It is to reinforce the message that history changes and makes us learn from the past.”His Japanese counterpart Kenji Hiramatsu agreed. “The Japanese know of the tragic past of the people of Manipur. But we have come to a point when we need to look at the future,” he said.Few would know this better than Nobuo Abe, a 77-year-old farmer turned collector of bones of fallen Japanese soldiers from across the world. His father, Soichi Abe, died at Red Hill on April 16, 1944, at the age of 30.Collecting bones“I was two-and-a-half years old when he died, and I do not remember his face as he left us for the war when I was a year old. Manipur will always be special to me because this is where my father died,” he said.A member of the Japan Bereaved Association, Mr. Abe could not find any of his father’s bones. “But I feel connected to him because I collect the bones of the fathers of my countrymen and women,” he said.According to Nippon Foundation’s Yosuke Ishikawa, a person’s bones are highly valued in Japanese culture.Among the highlights of the museum is a framed calligraphy by Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. It reads ‘heiwa’ — meaning peace — in Japanese.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chief K Sivan on Thursday said that Chandrayaan 2 orbiter is doing very well. Speaking to media, Sivan said, “All payload operations have commenced, it’s doing extremely well. We have got no signal from lander but orbiter is working very well.

We are working on that.” Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange framework Chandrayaan-2’s Vikram Lander had an unsuccessful landing on moon’s south pole as just moments before the landing, ISRO lost connection with it. The Indian space organisation had earlier said that it would keep trying for 15 days to establish contact with the Vikram lander but so far it hasn’t been able to. However, even after Chandrayaan-2 didn’t have a successful landing on the moon, ISRO said its mission’s 95% objectives have been completed since it was able to successfully place Chandrayaan-2’s orbiter into moon’s orbit which has state-of-the technology and will keep performing its experiments on the moon. Also Read – Trio win Nobel Medicine Prize for work on cells, oxygen The mission didn’t face any problem till the time it was about to land on the moon, hence, the orbiter’s life which earlier was projected for just a year will now be able to work for 7 years. Therefore, it will keep performing experiments using the latest technology. Chandrayaan-2 is India’s second moon mission. The Vikram Lander was supposed to land on the moon and roll out the rover ‘Pragyan’.(With inputs from DNA)last_img read more

Surveillance area domination operations intensified in Kashmir

first_imgSrinagar: Security forces have intensified surveillance and area domination operations in Kashmir following Saturday’s militancy-related incidents, including a grenade attack on security forces in old city, a senior security official said. Anti-insurgency operations were intensified as part of a proactive strategy to foil any plans of militants to stage any attacks on security forces in the valley, the official said. The official said while the operations were ongoing even after the August 5 decision of the Centre to revoke special status of Jammu and Kashmir, maintaining law and order to ensure peace in the valley had become the priority of law enforcement agencies. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange framework “As the situation has more or less normalised on the law and order front, the anti-terrorist operations have been intensified to ensure ultras do not stage any attacks,” he said. As part of the drill, security has been beefed up around vital installations including the Srinagar airport and police offices. Additional security bunkers are being constructed in the city and elsewhere in the valley to prevent militants from moving from one place to another, the official said.
