Rare speech of Mahatma Gandhi


Today is Gandhi Jayanti. Last year, a rare recording of a speech made by Mahatma Gandhi in English had surfaced. It is rare mainly because, believe it or not, he was recorded speaking in English on only two occasions. These days, on the other hand, some Indians born and bred in India's capital find it hard to speak in any other language except English.

This speech was made a day after Gandhi offered the post of Prime Minister to Jinnah and only a few months before his assassination.

Wow! I could sit down and listen to this only today (we worked on Oct 2). Thanks for posting this for us. Rajmohan Gandhi's interview videos posted in the Washington post links were also interesting to listen to. Thanks again.
