Manipur is observing the 70th anniversary of Battle of Imphal, one of the most historic battles of the Second World War (WW-II) fought in 1944. The inaugural ceremony of the 3-month commemoration of the Battle of Imphal was held on March 23, 2014 at Manipur Film Development Corporation (MFDC) Auditorium at Imphal. The anniversary programmes will continue till June 28. Various programmes will be held at the sites where Allied forces and Japanese soldiers fought fierce battles.

The inaugural ceremony, organized by Manipur Tourism Festival (MTF) and WW-II Imphal Campaign Foundation in association with the Government of Manipur, was graced by Chief Secretary P.C. Lawmkunga as Chief Guest, JapanÕs Ambassador to India His Excellency Takeshi Yagi, Additional Chief Secretary R.R. Rashmi, Principal Secretary (Tourism) Dr. Rajesh Kumar and Commissioner (Arts & Culture) R.K. Nimai as the Guests of Honour. President of Manipur Tourism Forum (MTF) Dr. Th. Dhabali presided the function.

Addressing the gathering, Japanese Ambassador Takeshi Yagi said the Battle of Imphal was the fiercest battle fought between the armies of Britain and Japan during the WW-II. As a result this small State is one of the historical places for both the countries. Although the Battle of Imphal took place 70 years back, the event remains un-forgettable to people of Japan, he added.

Takeshi Yagi further said organizing such an event will strengthen the relationship between the India and Japan. Relation between India and Japan has been improving after 70 years of the outbreak of the WW-II. Japan was reborn as a vibrant country after the WW-II. Ever since, Japan has been one of the most prosperous countries in Asia, which gave the people a peaceful and prosperous life, he added. He appealed the people of Manipur to protect and preserve the war memorials and peace pillars built in the State.

Chief Secretary Lamwkunga said Imphal was one of the most historic theatres of the WW-II which put Imphal in the tourism map of the world. He assured that from next year the events of the Battle of Imphal will be show-cased in the Sangai Festival, the annual tourism festival organized by the State Government. ÒWe will try to make the people of the State aware of the significance of this battle,Ó he added.

In his speech, President of MTF Dr. Th. Dhabali stated the purpose of commemorating the Battle of Imphal. He said the forum is organizing the anniversary at 14 different programs at 14 different historic war sites in Manipur in order to draw the attention of the masses and propagate the message of peace across the world. The historic Battle of Imphal was fought 2 months longer than the battle fought in Kohima from March to July in 1944. The battle involved around 2 lakh soldiers including pilots of both allied and Japanese forces. It was one of the historic battles of the WW-II, Mr. Dhabali said.

Commissioner Dr. R.K. Nimai said the Battle of Imphal was one of the ÒfiercestÓ battles of WW-II. The battle claimed numerous lives besides destroying many properties, but it changes the lives of people of this small State. The only and existing Tulihal Airport at Imphal and the 210 km Imphal-Moreh Highway were built during WW-II, he added.


Later, Takeshi Yagi visited some of the war memorials and battlefields in Manipur and expressed his appreciation to the government for maintaining them. He offered floral tributes to the Japanese soldiers killed during the Imphal campaign at the Japanese War Memorial at Maibamlotpa Ching.

In the Battle of Imphal, which was fought from March to July in 1944 between the British-led Allies and the Japanese and the Indian National Army (INA), over 2 lakh Japanese, Britons, Indians, Gurkhas and men from several other nations clashed in the hills and valleys of Manipur. Some of the important battles fought at Imphal were Battle of Sangshak, Battle of Kameng, Battle of Kanglatombi, Battle of Nungshigum, Battle of Tengnoupal, Battle of Torbung, Battle of Motbung, Battle of Bishenpur and the fighting on the Silchar Track.

On 20 April 2013 the combined battle of Imphal/Kohima was named as BritainÕs Greatest Battle by the National Army Museum of the United Kingdom. Peter Heehs in his History Today describes the significance of the Battle of Imphal thus: ÒImphal was one of the greatest Allied victories of the war, a turning point as significant in Asia as El Alamein and Stalingrad had been in Africa and Europe.Ó

It was at Imphal/Kohima that Allied forces halted the Japanese march across Asia. More than 30,000 Japanese soldiers died due to fighting or disease in the greatest defeat on land in JapanÕs history. The vast majority of casualties on both sides occurred during the Battle of Imphal.

The Battle of Imphal is also significant from a national perspective. Indian soldiers fought on both sides: together with the Japanese as part of Netaji Subhash Chandra BoseÕs INA and with the British as part of the British-Indian Army. The area surrounding the Moreh Road is the only place in India where more than 6,000 men of the INAÕs 1st Division was deployed and fought during the War. The INA flag was also hoisted for the first time in the country at Moirang on April 14, 1944. Today Moirang has the INA Memorial, which included a statue of Netaji Shubash Chandra Bose.

The Battle of Imphal in particular and the WW-II in general was also a momentous period for Manipur and its people. There was destruction and fighting on an unprecedented scale across Manipur. Thousands of people were displaced. For the first time Manipur witnessed the gathering of different nationalities and people from around the country and the world. Six airfields were constructed in the Imphal Valley during the war, which included Koirengai Airfield, Wangjing Airfield, Pallel Airfield, Sapam Airfield, Kangla Airfield, and Tulihal Airfield.

Manipur has 2 WW-II cemeteries - Imphal Indian Army War Cemetery at Hafiz Hatta and Imphal War Cemetery at Dewlaland. Imphal Indian Army War Cemetery at Hafiz Hatta is home to the graves of Muslim soldiers of the British Indian Army and a Cremation Memorial, which marks the cremation of Hindu and Sikh soldiers. Imphal War Cemetery at Dewlaland is home to the graves of Commonwealth soldiers, including Britons, Canadians, Australians, Burmese, Indians and East and West Africans.

Manipur Tourism Forum and 2nd World War Imphal Campaign Foundation will be organising the 70th Anniversary Commemoration of the Battle of Imphal from March to June 2014. It was seventy years ago that Manipur was witness to an epic battle between the British-led Allies and the Japanese and the Indian National Army (INA). From March to July of that year, over 200,000 Japanese, Britons, Indians, Gurkhas and men from several other nations clashed in the hills and valley of Manipur in what has since been described as one of the greatest battles of the Second World War. Indeed, on 20 April 2013, the combined battle of Imphal/Kohima was named as Britain’s Greatest Battle by the National Army Museum of the United Kingdom.

"...Imphal and Kohima suddenly awakened the world to the titanic scale of the military conflict in mainland Asia..." -

Grief Card is a three piece alternative rock band based in Bangaluru. Pramesh and Ravi are from Manipur whereas Jeet is from Assam.

Q 01. Tell us the journey of "Because of You" to the OST of Amamba Sayon: Resurrection?

Pramesh: The song is the product of an idea that I made about two years ago. We thought the song was a bit too ‘pop-ish’ to make it as a band song then, so kept the idea on hold. Then we got this opportunity, we thought, ‘why not make this idea into a song for this movie’. And that’s how ‘Because of You’ came into being. We were very skeptic about how people would react to the song as it is very different from our previous endeavors. But, people loved it, we are happy the song did well. It’s the most ‘popular’ song of Grief Card till date.     

Q 02. One from Assam and two from Manipur, tell us the story of how you all got up for the band?

Pramesh: I and Jeet are college mates and Ravi is my childhood friend. The band is not a new band, per se. Back in 2007, in Dayananda Sagar College, we formed a band called Beautiful Disaster which was later named ‘Screaming Rose’ amid line-up changes and which finally evolved into “Grief Card”, in 2011.

Q 03. Music tells us all. What is that it matters in your lyrics, music, theme, etc. that lets you make that music?

Pramesh: We think what matters is that, our sound remains creative and original.  We always try to make our next song different from our old songs whilst keeping the identifiable ‘Grief Card’ sound. About the themes/lyrics, we mostly write about heartbreak, disappointment as the band name suggests.

Q 04. A band stays as long as its members stays. How far do you wish to take the band to?

Pramesh: We have big plans for future; we want to connect to a lot of people, as many as we can through our songs. We are currently writing a lot of new material and we can’t wait to release it to the world.

Q 05. How or where do you get inspirations for your music? Or make your music inspired?

Pramesh: We get inspirations from our everyday life, the bands we listen to, our favorite movies, our favorite books, etc.

Q 06. We all exist supporting, sharing and helping each other. Tell us who all helped you in the beginning as a musician, as a band?

Pramesh: Personally, I’d like to give a big thanks to my cousin, Sanjoy who introduced me the ‘Guitar’, he taught me how to play it. Also, he introduced me to a lot of amazing bands by which I was able to grow my musical taste. I am what I am musically because of him.       
As a band, we are very thankful to the Dayananda Sagar college jam room, various bands who trusted us and lent us their gears in our initial years and all the beautiful people who love our song and have encouraged us to do what we do.

Q 07. A clean, pleasant and melodic tunes is what we could see from Can't You See to Because of You. What is the band's stand on the genre?

Pramesh: Well, first of all, thank you. J We are an alternative rock band. That being said, we try not to restrict ourselves to a particular genre. We love experimenting with various other genres; we are influenced by a variety of genres ranging from pop to metal. Right from 60’s artists like The Beatles to contemporaries like Incubus.

Q 08. What do you like best in all your compositions?

Pramesh: The best thing we like in our compositions is that we’ve always manage to keep our identifiable ‘Grief Card sound’ in all our songs.

Q 09. The band is all assembled and created in Bengaluru. Tell us some of the best things you like about the city as a rock musicians?

Pramesh: As musicians, the 1st good thing about Bangalore is that we can play/watch music almost every day. There are always 10-20 gigs happening every day in this city. The 2nd thing will be the musician’s network, most of the musicians in this city are very friendly and respectful, we always help each other out keeping the scene alive. And lastly and most importantly, the audience, they have been very receptive to new genres lately. Also, the new young audiences prefer original compositions over covers, which I think is very important for any band or scene to grow.

Q 10. What is the difference between Beautiful Disaster, Screaming Rose and Grief Card? Is Grief Card part of the previous two?

Pramesh: Yes, Grief Card is a part of the previous two. Jeet and I have been the constant in all the three bands. Back in 2007, in Dayananda Sagar College, we formed a band called Beautiful Disaster which was later named ‘Screaming Rose’ amid line-up changes and which finally evolved into “Grief Card”, in 2011.

Q 11. What do you guys do apart from music?

Pramesh: Jeet and I have full-time day jobs and Ravi is     pursuing his master’s in tourism.

Q 12. How do you want the story of Grief Card be told by generations to come? :)

Pramesh: We highly doubt we will be remembered by generations. Haha. Anyhow, if we are by some divine miracle. J We’d like to be remembered as the band who stayed true to their music and created awesome songs.

Q 13. Favorite Kannada song?   

Pramesh: We don’t really listen to kannada songs. But, if we had to choose, it’d be one of Raghu Dixit’s songs.
