An Indian schoolgirl hold the national flags of India and Japan as she waits with others to welcome Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at ‘Netaji Bhavan’ , the house of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose in Kolkata, 23 August 2007. Abe voiced admiration for two controversial Indians who stood up to colonial ruler Britain during World War II and sided with Tokyo. Abe visited the eastern city of Kolkata to meet relatives of nationalist Subhash Chandra Bose, who advocated violent resistance, and Radhabinod Pal, the sole judge who dissented at the Allied tribunal that condemned to death war-time Japanese leaders.
