The Tokyo Whale Is Quietly Buying Up Huge Stakes in Japan Inc
bourgeois-Bloomberg | April 24, 2016

Japanese Prime Minister Abe joins an Indian cult that burns Christmas Trees!
Ok, ok, no Christmas Trees were harmed. It’s just Japanese Prime Minister Abe’s state visit to the Hindu ceremony, the Ganga Aarti (Wiki), where he was the guest of Indian PM Narendra Modi.
