Both official accounts and popular historiesincluding Hollywood moviesfocused overwhelmingly on combat on the European fronts In the new millenniuma group of British military officersincluding some academicsstarted arguing that combat against Japan in Burma was as important as fighting against Hitlers Festung Europa The new genre of operational historians started claiming that Slim was a greater general than Bernard Montgomerythe man who defeated Erwin Rommel in Normandy Some Indian writers claimed that Indians played a prominent role on both sides during the climactic confrontation at Imphal and Kohima In realityhow important was Imphal-Kohima in the context of global warfare And how important was the role of the Indians in this campaign Despite the assertion of some populist writersthe Japanese strategic aim in launching U-Go was not to conquer Indiabut to occupy the important military bases of Imphal and Kohima in order to disrupt the Allied ground offensivewhich the Japanese rightly predicted would be launched into central Burma in mid-1944 It is true that 70 per cent of the personnel in Slims army were Indians There was only one British division and two African divisions in Burma The rest of the five infantry divisions comprised of Indians Howevermost commissioned officers in even the Indian divisions were British Some over-emphasise the role played by the Azad Hind Fauj (Indian National Army/ INA) in the Imphal-Kohima campaign Only 7000 INA personnel participated in this campaign Moreoverthey were neither trained nor equipped for frontline combat They were assigned rear area security tasks The Japanese aim was to use these units for encouraging sedition and rebellion among the Indians behind British lines Howeverthe INA failed to perform these tasks The Nagas around Imphal and Kohima sided with the British and hated the Japanesedue to the latters pillage and plundering of village livestocks Actuallythe Japanese had no optionas their supply line from Chindwin was in ruins while the 14th Army enjoyed the luxury of air supply The British armed many Nagas for self-defence Military training imparted to them by British officers in wartime and the capture of weapons of retreating Japanese soldiers enabled the Nagas to conduct armed insurgency against independent India in the 1950s Moreoverthe jawans remained loyal to their white masters and shot at the INA personnel Regimental loyalty prevented mutiny among the British-officered Indian soldiery Only the demobilisation of the 18 million strong Indian army in August 1942 and the British failure to provide the demobilised jawans with jagirs and jobs turned them against the Raj But that is a separate story How important was U-Go in terms of lethality in the context of der totale krieg About 157000 Allied troops were used to counter the Japanese invasion in 1944 The Imperial Japanese Army (IJA) had about five divisions in Burma (including one in Arakan and another in north Burma deployed against Joseph Stilwells Chinese-American troops) In comparisonsome 356000 Allied soldiers jostled at Normandy And the Wehrmacht had 58 divisions to defend west Europe Between February and July 1944the 14th Army suffered 24000 casualties (including 12000 at Imphal and 4000 at Kohima) The corresponding figure for the IJA was around 90000 Of the Wehrmacht troops in Normandy250000 became casualties after the German defeat at Falaise Gap on 21 August 1944 SoImphal-Kohima was a smaller affair than Normandy Howeverboth these battles were chicken feed compared to what was going on in the Ostfront In the summer of 1944Stalin launched Operation Bagration By the end of 1944the Red Army had advanced from Smolensk to the outskirts of Warsaw The Wehrmacht suffered almost a million

front Historical perception is different from historical reality Every nation uses history for national mythmaking and a professional historians thankless job is to blast the myths and counter-myths

practise their moves at the roundabout of Sector 2 and Sector 6 in Panchkula Source: Jaipal Singh Top News IT IS 7 pm and the summer sun is still some way from setting Amid the rush of home-bound traffic a man suddenly flies up in the air from the green island of the Bella Vista roundabout in Panchkula landing on his feet in a somersault Another follows him then another and another Everyday the busy roundabout is the unlikely setting that a group of dance enthusiasts from Majri Chowk in Manimajra uses to practise its gig — cartwheels jumps kicks and other moves drawing a small group of awed onlookers around them and curious stares from people driving around the rounabout As the group of mostly teenagers dressed in loose-fitted T-shirts and baggy trousers puts its best foot forward the crowd applauds But the Green Light Group as the dancers calls themselves is looking for a bigger stage and a wider audience The boys have been sweating it out daily because they want to make it to the auditions of popular television dance competitions such as Dance India Dance (DID) and India’s Got Talent (IGT) “We don’t have any heroes that we are tyring to copy we try to set a benchmark for ourselves by improving our performances every day” says Shakti Their trainer Samar who has been dancing since his school days says dancing is a passion for each one of the individuals at the roundabout “For as long as I can remember dance has been my first love and I want to make a name for myself in the field of dance and also help others in the group achieve their dreams and make a place for themselves in the field” Two members of the group auditioned for dance shows but did not get chosen But that has evidently not disheartened them Their families who are happy that the youngsters are involved in something constructive and creative are also supportive “Initially our families were a little apprehensive but now they motivate us to do better” says Samar They are already performers “We are now invited to dance at various functions all over Punjab where we get to perform in front of an audience and also gain some professionalism in the field” adds Rahul one of the members who says that right now they are not concerned about making money but just working hard to make a name for themselves and be part of the big dance competitions on television “It’s only then that people will know about us and our capability” said Luv He and his brother Kush add that they auditioned last month in Ludhiana for a street dance competition and although they didn’t make it to the next level they have been training hard for their next audition in July During the day these young dancers are either employed at shops or work on a daily wage basis to contribute to their family income The evenings however are reserved for dance “Anything for dance” sums up Satish For all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian Express App More Top News
