My friend’s perfectly arched eyebrow is slightly disconcerting It’s true we had visited the country recently but it had been a whirlwind tour — I had come away feeling as though I had merely skimmed the surface of a culture that was vastly different from anything I had ever experienced before It seemed a good time to return seek out what I had missed before but the raised eyebrow is a bit of a challenge: it seems to be asking what is it about Japan that makes me want to keep going back The decision is taken out of our hands by a mugging in Madrid (in the airport no less) over the summer that renders one of us without a passport our old trusty DSLR camera among other things It puts Europe firmly out of the picture and Japan appears more and more like chicken soup for the sore traveller This time though we settle for sleepy little mountain towns and ancient cities: for Kawaguchi-ko in the Fuji Five Lakes region the closest access point to climbing Mount Fuji; the ancient temple town of Nara; and the Unesco World Heritage island of Miyajima a short distance away from its more famous neighbour Hiroshima A backpacker friend mentions a ryokan (inn) run by an elderly couple in Kawaguchi-ko where he had bedded down on a mountaineering trip It was basic but it did offer private baths (In Japan shared baths and toilets are du jour in ryokans) and the food was wholesome Perhaps we could look them up and see if they could accommodate us They could and they do The heater in the room is temperamental it needs constant cossetting to do its job but the old lady fusses over us plying us with food We have no language to share but we get by with gesticulations and smiles Outside our huge glass windows Mount Fuji looms up like a hulking Hokusai painting clouds scurrying past it on that dank cold day It is surreal and oddly comforting a feeling of being at home We were there we were happy and that was all that mattered The Itsukushima shrine in Miyajima (Source: Thinkstock Images) I have never been able to distill in my head why I love to travel — the only explanation perhaps is that it helps me put my life in perspective Months later years even on a day when nothing seems to be going right I remember the blue of the St Helena sky in Napa Valley California and a single cotton-candy cloud luminous against the vast cerulean and I feel an irrational burst of hope; I remember a ride from Chamba to Dhanaulti in Uttarakhand in a rickety local bus groaning under the weight of school students farmers a few straggly tourists like us and livestock I remember looking out of the window and feeling alive and nauseous at the same time and for a brief moment I can feel the twang of the sharp mountain air on my pollution-hardened lungs Even misadventures — quarantined with jaundice in a hospital in the tiny university town of Munster in Germany or being conned into buying a ticket over and above my train pass by a smooth-talking agent in Zurich’s central station — seem in hindsight to be less galling occasionally even funny Travel makes me acknowledge that when you are in transit nothing is personal Nowhere is this feeling more reinforced than in Japan Everywhere we go the great orderliness of the Japanese social life leaves me a little flustered Trains arrive like clockwork queues move in an orderly fashion and despite the barrier of language people are unfailingly courteous and helpful It makes me feel hesitant at first used as I am to the daily grind of the subcontinent’s push-shove-get past routine — elbows squared brimming with impatience — or to the traveller’s necessary intuition of treading with care in unknown European cities What can travel tell you of a place that in this day and age of relentless social media you can’t know of sitting thousands of miles away I could tell you that Nara took my breath away but one could imagine that already from accounts of the majestic Daibutsu (Great Buddha) in the Todai-ji Temple on tourism websites I could tell you of the great food that we sample everywhere — the subtle regional variations that expand our repertoire beyond sushi and ramen — but of course we have already seen photographs of it on Instagram Perhaps the only sanctity that is still left to travel is how it makes you feel the adventures that you wear like a badge of honour those private moments that you hug close to yourself because they fill you with wonder hope and curiosity — the fish fin in my glass of hot sake that makes my insides churn but which I glug down nonetheless because the bartender says it’s his specialty and I don’t want to appear rude; I could tell you of the stillness of Mount Fuji’s reflection on Lake Kawaguchi that makes me blink away tears for no reason the memories of which I know I will turn to on days when photographs won’t be enough Our days in Kawaguchi-ko set the pace for the rest of the trip We abandon tourist hotspots and spend time ambling through Ueno-koen Japan’s first public park established in 1873 in Tokyo; in the Kansai region I spend days trying to match the absence of community dustbins with the extraordinary cleanliness of the cities till I finally find out that a majority of the people carry their trash back home to dispose them according to bio-degradation norms; in Nara I feel a stab of envy for the easy assumption of security as I see a bunch of women leave a bar well aftermidnightand walk away confidently In tranquil Nara (Source: Thinkstock Images) Slowly it sinks in that it is this mindfulness that I have missed before In an essay titled The Disappearance of Self in Japan writer Pico Iyer who has lived in Nara for over three decades writes: “In my quarter-century and more in Japan I’ve been struck at how much the Japanese following a tradition that may go back to Confucius or Lao Tzu see the virtue of keeping the self out of things This may be compounded by the fact that for so long they have had to share so little space with so many: the typical Japanese occupies a house with 117 square feet per person less than a quarter of the space a typical American occupies… In such a congested environment you can survive only by getting yourself out of the way — and counting on everyone else to do the same” Of course as a community this negation of the self has its pitfalls — gender disparity at the workplace and Japan’s high-rate of lonely deaths have been in the news for years now — but to the traveller it is an extraordinary lesson in harmony in being greater than one’s own self Indeed on Japan’s extensive shinkansen (bullet train) network as on the efficient subway system announcements are made constantly to be aware of one’s co-passengers’ needs: do not text while boarding or getting off trains as you might bump into someone carrying luggage or young children; do not speak loudly on your smartphone; put that selfie stick away pay attention On a shinkansen to Osaka as we wait to disembark a middle-aged American traveller shoves a handbag that has brushed against his arm out of his way It makes me feel indignant — the owner a Japanese girl had her hands full and I am sure she would be equally chafed Instead she turns around and curtsies a couple of times in apology leaving both the American and me a little bemused We have both travelled a long way

57 army officers deputed to the BDRdead at the hands of rebellious soldiersthe sentences include the death penalty for 152 of the mutineers and life imprisonment for a host of others A good number has been acquitted The sentencessimilar to the death penalties passed on a number of war criminalsare a testimony to the determination of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasinas government to get the wheels of justice rolling in a country where assassinations occurred with impunity and where trials of the guilty were carefully averted by every government that took charge between the first military coup in August 1975 and the Awami Leagues (AL) return to power for the first time in 21 years in June 1996 The trial of the killers of Bangladeshs founder Sheikh Mujibur Rahman led to the execution of five of them Five others are absconding abroad Fresh investigations have been launched into the November 1975 prison killings of four leaders of the 1971 provisional Bangladesh government The trials are a significant statement on how Bangladesh has dealt with political casualties since it achieved independence But while efforts are on to ensure justicethere remains the very real danger of the slide the country could suffer if its politics continues to deteriorate In the space of two weeksBangladeshis have been subjected to 120 hours of general strikes called by the opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and its allies in the rightwing 18-party alliance The strikescalled to force the ruling AL to concede to the oppositions demand for a caretaker government to oversee general elections that must be held by January 24 have predictably led to chaos in businesseducation and citizens movement across the country As many as 18 people have diedwith countless others injured Hasinawhose ruling 14-party alliance abolished the caretaker system in 2011 following a judicial decision that the system was illegalinsists that the next election could be conducted by an all-party governmentwith ministers inducted from the oppositionthat of course would be led by her Opposition leader and former PM Khaleda Zia is not ready to compromise on the caretaker government and is in no mood to see Hasina as interim PM Apologists for the ruling party explain that free and fair elections are indeed possible under the AL government They support their argument by drawing attention to the five city corporations the AL recently lost to the BNP That does not convince the opposition A telephonic conversation between Hasina and Zia a rare happening in the countrys prevailing political circumstances a fortnight agonot only led to nothing but also made public the degree of animosity between the two What Bangladeshis have before them today is a curious amalgam of irony and dark reality The irony is thatdespite storming back to power at the 2008 general elections with a four-fifths majoritythe AL and its allies have been unable to deliver on their promises Additionallycorruptionnotably in matters such as plans for a bridge over the River Padmahas taken the shine off the government Financial scams involving organisations and banks have undermined the administrations credibility A second irony is the apparent glee with which the BNP dreams of a return to power despite the massive corruptionunprecedented in Bangladeshs historyits leading figures indulged in during its last stint in office between 2001 and 2006 Zias elder son Tareq Rahmannow in exile in Londonran a parallel power centre when his mother was PM Besideshe and his younger siblingin exile in Singaporehave regularly been accused of financial corruption along with their friends A number of Zias cabinet colleagues are noted for their lack of probity All these individuals today look forward to returning to power if credible elections are held Zia has promised to run a different kind of administration meaning it will be different from the way things were in 2001-06 But such promises do not persuade many that she will do better the next time roundand for important reasons In the first placememories of the plunder and pillage BNP activists carried out against Hindus and AL supporters moments after their party returned to power at the 2001 elections have not quite gone away Secondthe BNP is today more definitively aligned with the Jamaat-e-Islamiwhose senior leaders have been sentenced to death for war crimes committed in 1971and with the Taliban-like Hefazat-e-Islamwhich publicly advocates a programme that can only mean a return to the medieval age It is difficult to see how much of an enlightened leadership can be provided by a party that remains notorious for its corruption and for its association with extreme rightwing groupsand which has been instrumental in the rise and consolidation of communal politics in Bangladesh A common refrain doing the rounds is that when the AL wins an electionit is progressive politics with all its democratic liberalism that is triumphant When it losesit is the people of Bangladesh who go down with it The dilemma today for Bangladeshs people is that the Awami League has mismanaged governance and the opposition BNP has shown no contrition over its past misrule The space for good choices is thus extremely narrow The writer is executive editor?
