Nehru’s Last TV Interview: What He Thought About India At The Time

About two-three days ago, on 14 May 2019, the Doordarshan Archives channel on YouTube had a rare gem on it. It was a video footage of what is believed to be Jawaharlal Nehru's last interview, perhaps - by one account - recorded just days before his death in 1964.

The video provides an interesting and sometimes intriguing look into the mind of Nehru. And so we thought, hey, you might want to know what he thought about a bunch of things, like Jinnah, the partition, probably Marxism, communism, among other things.

So we picked small bits from the video, brief segments, on things that might interest you, including a couple of strange comments that he makes on south India and India's food shortage problem.


Let's get into it. Watch the video above.
