A Message from India

A Message from India

India has the distinction of being the world’s largest democracy – as well as being on the brink of overtaking China in population. Some of the better legacies of the two-century British rule, or Raj, were railways, a public service and democratic government.

We call that country India, but it knows itself as Bharat and rules itself as a federal parliamentary constitutional republic and is a member state of the Commonwealth of Nations.

The distinguished guest In Conversation with Noel Cheer on Triangle Television this week is the former Governor of the Indian State of West Bengal who was recently in New Zealand as the keynote speaker at this year's Indian Business Awards. Mr Gopalkrishna Gandhi is also the grandson of the universally revered Mahatma Gandhi whose words and actions have guided Aung San Suu Kyi, Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama and the late Martin Luther King.

Triangle Television, Wednesday 21st of November at 7:00pm. It will be repeated on Thursday 22nd of November at 12 noon.
