Sixty years of Indian independence – I

To celebrate sixty years of Indian independence, in this blog, I will try to link to some media and materials of interest. Of course, I will begin with Gandhi.

Here is a video of an interview of Gandhi with an American Journalist — a must-see video. To give a flavour, here is the exchange towards the end of the interview:

Journalist: If England does not grant your demand, are you prepared to return to jail, again?

Gandhi: I am always prepared to return to jail.

Journalist: Would you be prepared to die in the cause of India’s independence?

Gandhi: (A pause) It is a bad question (mild laughter).

There are plenty of Gandhi footage at the Google Videos. Have fun!
