India to Send Videographers to Japan to Record Bose's Life
India will send a team of videographers to Japan to record the accounts of the Japanese people who have been close to nationalist leader Subash Chandra Bose when he was in this country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said today.
"When I talk about Subash Chandra Bose, there will be many here who reminisce him and his memories," said Modi while addressing a programme organised by Japan-India Association on the fourth-day of his Japan visit.
The Prime Minister referred to a 93-year-old gentleman among the audience who had once worked with Bose, and still recalls incidents associated with him.
The Prime Minister said he had asked the Indian Ambassador in Tokyo, Deepa Gopalan Wadhwa, to depute a professional team with him for a month, so that a video recording could be made of his interviews.
He noted that the Japan-India Association is 110 years old – in fact, older than any other such association in Japan.
During the Second World War, Bose joined hands with the Japanese in Myanmar to drive the British out of the sub continent.
Bose died on August 18, 1945 in Taiwan after suffering serious injuries in a plane crash towards the end of World War II.
Modi is on a five-day visit to Japan to build the strategic relationship between the two countries.
