The year 1944 brought India into the eyes of the world more than anytime before in this century. The struggle between the British and t he Indians was not a new story and therefore it did not attract much attention even with the news of the imprisonment of our great leaders, Messrs. Gandhi and Nehru. But to things that attracted and still in the eyes of the American people are - first, the great famine that swept over India, killing thousands of helpless Indians. Newspapers and magazines and commentators created a very sympathetic feeling in the heart of the American people. And the Americans have graciously responded to help India in its disaster. The second phase of attraction is in process right now; and that is the Japanese invasion of India. This Japanese attach is not a disaster of India. This Japanese attack is not a disaster just India. This Japanese attack is not a disaster just to India alone, but it involves a problem to all the Allies. The Allies are doing everything they can to keep the Japanese away for the sake of India and for the sake of all democracies. The cause of the disastrous famine is the economic conditions and these condition are primarily caused by the present wars. [TRUNCATED]
