India’s national «Doordarshan» TV Channel today presents the Tribute to Mahatma Gandhi of Pastor Jan-Aage Torp upon the 151st anniversary of his birth.
The initiative to Pastor Torp´s Tribute on Doordarshan TV and DD News - India's National TV Channels - came from the Indian Embassy in Oslo, which wrote to Torp:
«As a part of the celebrations, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of India has proposed to mount special programmes on the influence of Mahatma Gandhi on International relations, foreign policy and people to people relationship. In this context, 'Doordarshan' and 'DD News' India's National TV Channels would be incorporating bytes of 2-3 minutes duration of eminent foreign personalities from different countries. We would appreciate if you could consider recording a 2-3 minutes byte on the solemn occasion and forward it to us so it may be included to be telecast in the Doordarshan and DD News programmes on 2nd October, 2020.»
