MAHATMA – Life of Gandhi 1869-1948, part 7 of 14, The Nation's Representative, 1931-1932
Script, commentary and direction by Vithalbhai Jhaveri
Produced by The Gandhi National Memorial Fund in cooperation with the Films Division of the Government of India in 1968
The film depicts Gandhi's visit to England as the sole representative of the Congress at the Second Round Table Conference. The apostle of non-violence, scantily clothed, pleaded not merely for India's freedom but for a vaster and more comprehensive morality. He declared, "My goal is friendship with the world." The conference was completely abortive. On his return to India, His Majesty's guest at Buckingham Palace was led to His Majesty's prison.
