While growing up as a kid in independent India, I used to wonder how was India’s independence portrayed in the then European and American media. Thanks to Google who made news archive available now – making it convenient for people to peek back in the history and review the news articles from the past. I like reading Time magazine articles reporting India’s independence from 1930s.
Did you know Mahatama Gandhi only weighed 76 lbs? wow! I missed that detail – knew he was a lean person. I had not imagined though if he was this frail with such strong determination in his belly.
Anyway, check yourself out Google news archive here. It gives time search as well – so you can track the progress of important historical events.
Ignorance has never been an acceptable argument – and now people can learn from the history more than ever without pleading ignorance of the past <grin>
