Storm-hit areas in Japan brace for heavy rains



Tokyo: Torrential rains have battered a wide swathe of eastern Japan that was hit by flooding and high winds from Typhoon Hagibis two weeks ago, sending rivers to the tops of their banks and prompting evacuation orders for tens of thousands.

At least 82 people were killed when Hagibis lashed central and eastern Japan, with nearly a dozen still missing.

Authorities warned of the chance of further landslides and flooding on Friday, especially in areas hit by levee breaks that have yet to be repaired even provisionally.

Evacuation orders were issued for at least 80,000 people in Chiba prefecture, just east of Tokyo, where rivers were rising precariously close to their banks and authorities warned the rain could continue for a few more hours.

Parts of Chiba were pounded by 86mm of rain in an hour on Friday morning, the third natural disaster to hit the area in the past six weeks.

Much of Chiba lost power, some areas for weeks, in Typhoon Faxai in September and then were hit by heavy rains due to Hagibis.

The rain was expected to pound the Tokyo area until evening and then move north.

Total rainfall in the area around Tokyo was likely to range from 200-300mm by evening, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.


Netaji’s slogan ‘Tum mujhe khoon do mai tumhe ajadi dunga ‘ is remembered every Independence Day




Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose not only instigated the young revolutionaries with his slogan but also made an unforgettable contribution and sacrifice in the freedom movement.

We remember Netaji’s slogan ‘You give me blood, I will give you freedom’ on every Independence Day. Netaji’s slogan rests on the tongue of every young revolutionary.

Apart from the slogan ‘You give me blood…’ there are other memorable things of Subhash Chandra Bose that give us the passion to live. His words reflect the reality of life.

Netaji reached Burma on 4 July 1944 with his Azad Hind Fauj. This was the place where he said the famous words “Give me blood, and I will give you freedom.

Famous thoughts of Netaji –

* Remember the biggest crime is to endure injustice and compromise with wrong. It is our duty to pay for our freedom with our blood.

* We should have the strength to protect the freedom that we get from our sacrifice and hard work.

* As a soldier you must always cherish and live up to three ideals: truth, duty and sacrifice.

* The soldier who is always loyal to his country, who is always ready to sacrifice his life, is invincible. If you also want to be invincible, then incorporate these three ideals into your heart.

* A person who does not have a craze can never become great. But inside it, there must be something else.

* Those who rely on their strength move forward and are injured with borrowed strength.
