2. Film Indian Deities Worshipped in Japan' by Benoy Behl, art-historian photographer and film maker. "There is a very important bridge of culture joining the countries of India and Japan. In the words of HE Mr. Yasukuni Enoki, Former Ambassador of Japan, "It is very important for the Japanese to know that in the bottom of Japanese culture, Indian culture is very firmly imprinted". Buddhist and Hindu deities of India are worshiped by the people of Japan. The 5th century Sanskrit script is revered in Japan and its letters."

Russia's elite and much of its public believes that Russia can never be secured if Ukraine becomes a hostile nation and particularly if it joins a hostile alliance – NATO

My take – recently visited Rezang la War Memorial in Chishul, Ladakh. On 18/11/1962 app 123 soldiers and officers led by Maj Shaitan Singh mowed down over 1300 Chinese soldiers. Where ever leadership was strong we took on the Chinese in 1962 said a army officer. Let us not underestimate our selves, importantly not be over-confident.

To cite an earlier example, in 1998-99, the Joint Working Group set up to address the India-China boundary question had proposed conduct of joint adventure activities by the India Army and Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) of the then Lanzhou Military Area Command. The first such adventure activity planned was a mountaineering expedition to the twin peaks of Nun-Kun in the J&K Himalayas. The Chinese backed out of the expedition stating that since J&K was a disputed area between India and Paki ..
A strong military force is not meant to fight as it is to ensure peace and non-interference. India is today militarily most adequately poised to avenge any 1962 type misadventure by China. In addition, Indian government is standing firm in not being jostled by China's machinations, which has rattled the Chinese. India, too, needs to pursue and secure its own interests above anything else; it has the soft and hard power to do just that. It needs to muster the WILL.'
