Are India and Japan good friends? Well, this was the question that kept haunting me ever since I started learning Japanese . Not that I dont know anything about Indo Japanese relations. India is a vast country with huge population and has achieved independence very recently. But Japan has not missed the industrial revolution though it got damaged to a large extent because of Worldwar II. I have not read any article on internet about the Indo Japanese relations before world war II. It is always said that Indian culture,especially Buddhism spread to Japan via China. But ,is that the only thing we have in common? Didnt we know each other directly before WWII or without Chinese interference? I like Japanese culture and their hard working nature. Their dedication to Nation Building is what missing among people of my country. Well , just let me know where to find authentic information about INdo Japanese relations.
