Media has become an integral part of our lives today. When the latest news is just a tweet away, it is hard to imagine a life without being informed 24×7. But there was a time, less than a century ago, when TV interviews and media appearances were rare! If you have always wanted to relive some of those greatest moments in history and witness what our great leaders did, well, here is Mahatma Gandhi’s first ever TV interview with Fox Movietone News taken on April 30, 1931.
What do you think Gandhi replied when the interviewer asked him, “If the King of England invited you to dinner at Buckingham Palace, would you go in your customary Indian dress?” You’ll be amazed.
And his response to the interviewer’s final question, “Would you be prepared to die in the cause of India’s independence?” made us laugh!
