Background
          Tilak Maharashtra University (TMV) was established in 1921 by Mahatma Gandhi in the memory of great reformist LOKMANYA BAL GANGADHAR TILAK.
          Since the time of the industrial revolution, western countries have been leaders of technology. The colonialism in 17th and 19th centuries helped increase their spheres of dominance world over. The two wars their after changed all this.
          With growing affluence, the Japanese are major contributors to the tourism industry. Today their presence is in evidence at every tourist spot the world over. India, for its part, several tie-ups with Japanese companies. We are also trying to promote India as a tourist destination. Obviously, there is a great demand for translators, interpreters, software professionals fluent in Japanese. Technical literature in Japan is not available in any other language.
          Thus, the Japanese language which is a unique one with 3 scripts and grammar very similar to Indian language (Marathi), is ideal for study by Indian (Maharshtrian) students. This will present them an opportunity to communicate with the Japanese people and will open various career / job opportunities.
