China University of Political Science and Law Death of Hu Yaobang[ edit ] When Hu Yaobang suddenly died of a heart attack on April 15,students reacted strongly, most of them believing that his death was related to his forced resignation. Within days, most posters were writing about broader political issues, such as freedom of the press, democracy, and corruption. Its laying-party was on April 17 and a larger-than-expected crowd assembled. The gathering featured speakers from various backgrounds giving public orations commemorating Hu and discussing social problems.
There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. In this world so full of hatred and violence, this man of peace and goodwill fought all evil and injustice with Soul-Force. He stands out as a challenge giving the message of truth and non-violence, of love supreme and unbounded.
He is the Mahatma - the Great Soul - the name given to him by the people of India. Gandhi has left an indelible mark on human history.
His thought is ever relevant for all those who aspire for a better and fuller life. Animation, live photography and old prints, have been blended to give an integrated image of his life. Some of the material is bound to be technically imperfect but it is an authentic portrayal of history.
Consistent with the aim of presenting a full picture, the length here was inevitable; shorter films depicting different aspects of his life will also be presented.
Many minds and many hands have laboured in making the film which took years to complete. The Trust is grateful to all who have helped this venture but most to its Honorary Director, Vithalbhai Jhaveri.
This film is the result of his selfless dedication to the work and the full co-operation of the Films Division of the Government of India.
The Trust is happy to present Gandhi, who embodies the precious legacy of our land, to the world. Excerpt from website Please visit site for more information: During this segment, historians and others examine temples built in India more than 1, years ago.
