In this video conversation, we get to know Kalyanam the individual, how he came to know the Mahatma, what drew him to the movement etc.
A young Government officer decides to chuck his Rs.200 a month job in 1942 and join Mahatma at this ashram. From then till the day Gandhi was assassinated, Kalyanam was his Personal Secretary. In this wide-ranging discussion, he discusses how India lurched from day to day. Within 2 months of India obtaining independence, MKG got many letters complaining of corruption!
How Nehru desperately wanted to be PM; he just had the support of CWC (Congress Working Committee) but of the 16 Pradesh Congress Committees, 12 supported Patel for Presidentship of Congress. Only 1 (Kripalani) supported Nehru.
