Chapter Seven: Japan as the Light of Hope for Asia
By Henry S. Stokes, former Tokyo Bureau Chief of The New York Times

We now present Chapter Seven.
In December, 2012, the 60th Anniversary of the Restoration of Diplomatic Relations between Japan and India was carried out in Tokyo.
Mr. Stokes was the key-note speaker and the title of his speech was “Japan as the Light of Hope for Asia.” One of the most surprising developments in the 20th century has been the sheer speed at which the 500 year curse of colonialism came to an end. And it was Japan that caused that surprise. On May 16, 1943, Chandra Bose, representative for Provisional Government of India came to Japan and gave his address at Hibiya Public Hall. Bose clearly said, “Japan was the ‘Light of Hope’ for Asia.”
In the fall of the same year, 1943, the Greater East Asian Conference was held from November 5 to 6 in Tokyo. This was the first Summit of the colored races held for the first time in the long history of humanity. At the Conference, the Greater East Asian Joint Declaration was approved unanimously. Bose appealed, “I pray to God that this Joint Declaration… may prove to be a charter for the nations of East Asia and what is more, a charter for the suppressed nations of the whole world. May this Joint Declaration be the new charter of liberty….”
