    Interestingly it was released by Azad Hind bank.
    AHB, was established by Subhash Chandra Bose in Rangoon. The bank maintained its branches throughout Japan occupied countries.


    One more on Subhash Chandra Bose. This leaflet was released by Japanese to honour Subhash Chandra Bose. It depicts Subhash Chandra Bose (backed by japanese tanks) cutting the head off a British Lion.

    This is a pic of Sanskrit being taught at Point Loma, California (1943). Not sure if Sanskrit gets as much importance in India.

    Awesome @Levina

    I especially like the pic of parliament under construction ..... 'Indian democracy taking its baby steps' - exquisite and overwhelming words truly. Sentiments overwhelm me.:india:



    The non-sense of our country notwithstanding, I still believe, and this after being frustrated by idiots around, that this nation is worth the cost that it exacts at times!
