Himalaya Awareness Channel’s feature: “The Kashmir Conflict”

October 20, 2016

The feature of Himalaya Awareness Channel’s 2016 Autumn Edition is finally set: “The Kashmir Conflict.”  The big powers, India, Pakistan and China, especially India and Pakistan the nuclear armed nations have been fighting each other intermittently over the sovereignty of Kashmir in the northwest Himalayan region.  As you may know, Kashmir is used as the root of “cashmere“ the high-class fabric.  The Kashmir conflict is the longest conflict in the world, starting just after the partition of India in 1947.  This year the conflict between Kashmiri local people especially the youths and Indian security forces is getting intense again.  In addition, an Indian army base was attacked by an armed group and both India and Pakistan have started to criticize each other over the case.  We want to use this opportunity to think again the forgettable longest –term conflict in the world with you.  

The launch of Himalaya Awareness Channel

September 08, 2016

We have launched Himalaya Awareness Channel (HAC) , which is one of the major projects by the Himalaya Archive Japan.  HAC is a special website on the Himalaya-related information and designed for users to think about our contemporary world and lives through the “organically-bonded reference information“ based on the original concept.  HAC provides users with various topics by videos, still pictures, and texts under such categories as society, education, environment, culture, health, politics & economy, nation and feature.  HAC will be upgraded incrementally.   

(Updated on Feb. 12, 2019: It is renamed to "the Himalaya Awareness Archives.")

Vol. 10: Nepal Large Earthquake

April 27, 2015

On April 25 in 2015, a large earthquake hit Nepal.  It’s a 7.8 magnitude earthquake centered in the area, which are approximately central mountains of the nation.  Many buildings including temples in World Heritage Sites collapsed and many died and were injured.  As of Apr. 28th, the death toll is now more than 4000, more than 7000 are injured and more than 8 millions of people were damaged.  However, the exact damage in the mountain areas, where many small villages are scattered and there were assumedly many tourists, trekkers and climbers, are unknown. The damage will surely increase.  The earthquake has also damaged the neighboring countries such as India, Pakistan, Tibet and Bangladesh.  Nepal gave sincere supports to Japan at the time of the Great East Japan Earthquake.  There has been a strong tie between two countries.  Therefore, it’s time for Japanese people to repay Nepal for its help.  We also ask everyone especially those who love Nepal to support it continuously. 

Vol. 9: Renewal of the Official Website of HAJ & Launch of “the Himalaya Awareness Channel”

April 17, 2015

After about 4-year preparation, we’ve finally started to create a new official website of our organization and the Himalaya Awareness Channel, an informative website on the “Himalayan world.”  For the preparation years, the application of our concept of “Think of our mother earth, Think from the Himalaya” has been getting more clear.  Here are some evidences for it:  The repeated deluges in India, Pakistan and the large avalanche in Mt. Everest killing many Sherpas in 2014 are thought to be caused by the global warming; Many new social issues have been arising in the rapid growth of the economy in India; More than 200 Tibetans have done self-immolation for their protest against the China’s unjust occupation in Tibet; Ms. Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani activist for female education and Mr. Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian activist against child labor got Nobel Peace Prize.  The new website (the Himalaya Awareness Channel) is scheduled to be launched in spring 2016.
