Dr Vishnu Bisram recently visited Malaysia to research and study the so called Indian death train or death trail in Burma and Thailand. Some130,000 Indians were sent to the jungles during WWII to build a rail line linking Malaysia, Singapore, Burma and Thailand to India. Some 100,000 Indians died during the construction of the rail and were buried near the rail line -- hence the death railway name. In pix, are two other Gentlemen from Malaysia who are also working on a project (films) on the death train.
