Rare Gandhi Documentary

Frontline magazine reports the "discovery" of a documentary on Gandhi. The documentary was made by Mr. A.K.Chettiar, who spent three years collecting film on Gandhi, and made the documentary when he was in his twenties!

The report states that the documentary has film showing Gokhale meeting with Gandhi in South Africa in 1912. That makes it very interesting. However, the original, which was 81 minutes and in Tamil is still missing. I wish they find it as well as the Telugu and Hindi versions and restore all of them.
