A voter for Liberal Democratic Party(LDP) wearing the national flag of Japan. Besides the disappointing economic situation for the past 20 yeras, the nation has been frustrated by the government's recent weak foreign policy. As a result the patriotism is now growing little by little in this least patriotic country especially in the younger generation.

LDP ruled as a one-party government for a long time and it had been said that one-party regime led political corruption in Japan. In August 2009, the major oppositon Democratic Party of Japan came to the power. It was the first time ever in the postwar era for a change of administration to take place by a majority of votes; however, The party that should have been the solution for the country's long time crisis failed big time to meet the public expectations. And now LDP returned to the power again after three years hiatus and the party leader Abe will come back as Prime Minister for his second time. He would be trying to fulfill his campaign slogan "Regain Japan" and the nation keeps an eye on how he can develop political acumen both nationally and economically.

This flag was the cause of many violent protests when the Jordanian security forces tried to take it down, claiming it was not allowed in the camp. They have become more lenient towards the symbol of a free Syria and more refugees are raising the flag on their streets and painting their tents with the symbol of hope for their future.

“WITH TIBET IN SIGHT: A TALE OF ONE M...
Pangong Tso Lake, India
By Andreanewilliams
20 Sep 2012

Nearly 14 000 feet above sea level, on the arid shores of Pangong “Tso” (lake), flies a lone Tibetan flag.

On occasion, travellers manage to make the 5-hour journey here from Leh during the short summer season, stopping at monasteries and roadside yurts along the way. And if they travel as far down the lakeside as possible - without stepping into Chinese territory - to the remote village of Spangmik, they will undoubtedly see it whipping about in the wind.

In democratic India, this flag's presence may seem benign - but on the opposite shore of Pangong Tso’s salty waters, lies Tibet; and just a few kilometers south of Spangmik, lies an army checkpost.

In such close proximity to Tibet, 68-year-old Tsering Dondup is literally flying the Tibetan flag in the face of China.

Pangong Lake sits on the Sino-India Line of Actual Control, with more than 60 per cent of its 134km length being under Chinese control.

Dondup, himself, first arrived in India in 1959 after his parents were killed in clashes with Chinese troops at the height Tibet’s occupation in the 1950s. Initially motivated to avenge the death of his parents, Dondup went on to join the Indian Army in Mussoorie, northern India, in 1968.

Fifteen years later, he met and fell in love with a young woman from Spangmik village. In 1989, they married.

He smacks his lips together and lets out a sigh, as he reflects on his relationship with his wife of 23 years. “My wife may be illiterate, but she loves me so deeply.”

Following his marriage, he became focused on creating a home - in plain sight of Tibet - with his new wife on the rocky banks of Pangong Tso.

But as a reminder of his past, Dondup flies a little piece of his history on the flagpole outside of his home, with the hope of one day returning to Tibet.

“I want to see the birds, the sheep, the horses. I want to see them again," he says. "Are they there, or not? I don’t know."
