India of the GandhisStreaming Video - 2006
Immerse your students in India's current political landscape and the influence of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty. Focusing on the accomplishments of Mohandas Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, and Nehru's descendants-including the improbable rise of Sonia Gandhi in 2004-this program uses archival images, dramatic press footage, and interviews from a broad cross-section of Indian society to vividly depict the social, economic, and ideological legacy of the Mahatma and his inner circle. While viewers will encounter information on Congress Party detractors, the program clearly demonstrates that the Gandhis remain a powerful political force.
