DDI airs ‘The Discovery of India’ to mark Nehru’s death anniversary
To mark the death anniversary of India’s first Prime Minister Nehru, who died on 27 May 1964, DD Bharati is telecasting his “The Discovery of India” series.
Jawaharlal Nehru’s “The Discovery of India”, which he wrote while he was in Ahmednagar Jail between 1942 and 1946, has become a major intellectual work on Indian history. The book has also been converted into a popular TV series.
Since its first audio-visual production in 1988, the 53-episode ‘Discovery of India’ (English) and ‘Bharat Ek Khoj’ (Hindi) directed by the well-known filmmaker Shyam Benegal have been telecast a number of times on different channels of Doordarshan and also on Lok Sabha TV.
