How Indian independence was ‘introduced’

~ India’s President Dr.Rajendra Prasad washed the feet of 200 Sanskrit Pandits with water, put sandal paste on their foreheads, garlanded them, gave them sweets and Rs.11/- each as “dakshana”. Cartoon from Filmindia magazine, I got this cartoon from National Film Archive of India, Pune in February, 2013. ~ Thanks Syam Sundar.
