'Neuve Chapelle, France, March 12, 1915' by K.J.S.Chatrath

That is me at the Memorial to Indian soldiers in Neuve Chapelle, France in 2009.

Sapper Abdul Rahman Khan, #1700, 3rd Sappers & Miners, Sepoy Amar Singh, # 2393, 47th Sikhs, Rifleman Bachanu Negi, #2389, 39th Garwhal Rifles, Rifleman Chandrabhoj Limbu, 31269, Assam Military Police and 151 other Indian soldiers attained martyrdom fighting in Neuve Chapelle exactly on hundred years back, on 12th March, 1915.

Respectful homage to them.

More details coming soon in my book ‘Indian martyrs of World War-I in Neuve Chapelle Memorial and Mazargues Military Cemetery, France’

'Collapse of Hotel de Ville building in Puducherry-Quelle domage! (what a pity)' by K.J.S.Chatrath

The above photographed building on the Marine Drive in Puducherry (Pondicherry) which housed the office of the Mayor, collapsed in the last week of November 2014. This photo was taken by me on December 25, 2010. This collapse has underscored the need to take care of the other French era heritage building in this ex-French colony.
