The INA was formed by the Japanese government, which appointed Rash Behari Bose as Supreme Commander.
Rash Behari Bose was worldly famous figure, widely known and loved in Japan while he was alive. He was never called Bose of Nakamuraya, or Nakamuraya no Bose, until Nakajima Takeshi gave him the nickname in 2005. (60 years after his death, well over half a century after his death!)
Indo-Japan relationship is less than 70 years old. If Indians seek to see the continuum of the exchanges between the two cultures since the ancient time, please review and know the truth of Indian freedom fighters in Japan.
The tremendous sacrifice and labor of Indians and Japanese Canadians is grossly undervalued.
Both India and Japan have been maritime nations since ancient times, whereas most other nations have not. Both India and Japan, since ancient times, have been traveling throughout the world by boat, trading and exchanging.
Nakajima Takeshi coined the term “Bose of Nakamuraya” and called Rash Behari Bose a terrorist in his book
The connection between India and Japan does not begin and end in Buddhism. They never stopped being strongly connected even throughout the era of Western colonialism. Their extensive connection has been intentionally overlooked since the world history as we know it has been written and falsified by the West.
India, Japan and the rest of East Asia fought the Greater East Asia War, the war to free themselves from European colonialism. They lost the war and forgot the name and why they had to fight in the first place.
Nakamuraya that Rash Behari Bose was related to vanished in 1945 soon after his death. The present Nakamuraya launched curry business in 2001 (56 years after his death!).
