Netaji in Nagaland

I came across this TV report on IBNlive which brought back many memories. It was when I was a schoolboy in Nagaland. An aging Naga gentleman had mentioned seeing Netaji's INA march through his village. On seeing my interest he had sat down and talked long about those days. Netaji had come in from Burma with the Japanese. His eyes took on a gleam as he talked animatedly about the march of the Japanese, their food, their equipment and their medicine. The last had amazed the villagers. Apparently the Japs had a lotion that cured cuts in no time at all. The villagers had benefited well from Netaji's march passing through. And he was definitely left in awe!
