Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra
IN CONTINUATION OF ANOTHER NOTE – “TEARS IN KOHIMA”
Another stark reminder of lives lost in exchange for land – the Taukkyan War Memorial in Mingaladon, Myanmar.
No matter how patriotic one might feel, the exchange does not seem worth it. A few pictures of the Taukkyan War Cemetery in Myanmar, that holds the remains of aliied soldiers resting so far away from home.
The cemetery now contains 6,374 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 867 of them unidentified and memorials for commonwealth servicemen of other faiths.
Seventy Five years later someone has put flowers on this grave! SO touching! I wonder if 75 years after I am gone I might elicit a single thought – much less the action of sending flowers across half the world!
