Indian National Army

The Indian National Army (INA; Azad Hind Fauj); आज़ाद हिन्द फ़ौज; آزاد ہند فوج) (Lit: Free-Indian Army) was an armed force formed by Indian nationalists in 1942 in South-East Asia during World War II. Its aim was to secure Indian independence from British rule, for which it allied with—and was supported by—Imperial Japan in the latter's campaign in South-East Asia. The army was first formed in 1942 under Mohan Singh, with Indian prisoners of war captured by Japan in the Malayan campaign and at Singapore. This first INA collapsed and was disbanded in December that year after differences between INA leadership and Japanese military over what its role was perceived to be in Japan's war in Asia. It was revived under the leadership of Subhas Chandra Bose after the his arrival in South-East Asia in 1943 and proclaimed the army of Bose's Arzi Hukumat-e-Azad Hind (the Provisional Government of Free India). Under Bose's leadership, it drew ex-prisoners of and thousands of civilian volunteers from Indian expatriate population in Malaya and Burma. This second INA fought along with the Imperial Japanese Army against the British and Commonwealth forces in the campaigns in Burma, Imphal and Kohima, and later against the successful Burma Campaign of the Allies. Initially after its formation in 1942, it triggered concerns in the British-Indian army of further defection by Indian troops. This led to a reporting ban and a successful propaganda campaign to preserve the loyalty of the Sepoy. However, in military strategy and effectiveness, the influence of the INA on the war is considered inconsequential by historians. The end of the war saw a large number of the troops repatriated to India where some faced trials for treason. These trials became a galvanising point of the Indian Independence movement. The Bombay mutiny in the Royal Indian Navy along with other mutinies in 1946 have been credited to the nationalistic influence from the fallout of the INA trials. Historians point out these events played a crucial role in hastening the end of British rule. A number of people associated with the INA during the war later went on to hold important roles in public life in India as well as other countries in South-east Asia, most notably Lakshmi Sehgal in India, and John Thivy and Janaki Athinahappan in Malayasia. The legacy of the INA is controversial. It was associated with Imperial Japan and the other Axis powers. Japanese occupations in Burma, in Indonesia and other parts of South-East Asia were harsh, and accusations were levelled against INA-troops of being involved and complicit in Japanese war crimes. The INA's members were viewed as Axis collaborators by British soldiers. Indians after the war viewed INA-soldiers as patriots. Another different controversy relates to the conduct of independent India towards INA recruits. Widely commemorated and indulged by the Indian National Congress in the immediate aftermath of Indian independence, members of the INA were denied the status of Freedom fighter by the Government of India, which those in the Gandhian movement received. However, the army remains a popular and emotive topic in popular Indian culture as well as politics.

Papaya

The papaya (from Carib via Spanish), papaw, or pawpaw (is the fruit of the plant Carica papaya, and is one of the 22 accepted species in the genus Carica of the plant family Caricaceae. It is native to the tropics of the Americas, perhaps from southern Mexico and neighbouring Central America. It was first cultivated in Mexico several centuries before the emergence of the Mesoamerican classical civilizations. The papaya is a large, tree-like plant, with a single stem growing from tall, with spirally arranged leaves confined to the top of the trunk. The lower trunk is conspicuously scarred where leaves and fruit were borne. The leaves are large, in diameter, deeply palmately lobed, with seven lobes. Unusually for such large plants, the trees are dioecious. The tree is usually unbranched, unless lopped. The flowers are similar in shape to the flowers of the Plumeria, but are much smaller and wax-like. They appear on the axils of the leaves, maturing into large fruit - long and in diameter. The fruit is a type of berry. It is ripe when it feels soft (as soft as a ripe avocado or a bit softer) and its skin has attained an amber to orange hue. Carica papaya was the first transgenic fruit tree to have its genome deciphered.
