January 30, 1948 was the day when Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated a little before the sunset when he was on his way to attend his evening prayers. Since then on Martyr’s Day the top officials of the country gather at the samadhi at Raj Ghat memorial and lay wreaths decorated with multi-colour flowers.

In order to pay tribute to Father of the Nation, ‘Sarva Dharma Prarthna Sabha’, a program on Gandhiji’s Martyrdom Day will be live telecast on DD National, DD Bharati, DD Kisan and DD India from 03.30 pm to 05.30 pm (or till the end) today.

Post the live telecast on 30th January, DD Bharati channel will also air a biography on Mahatma Gandhi, titled ‘Mahatma- The Great Soul’ in the evening.

The biography will take the viewers to the time Gandhi Ji spent in South Africa and subsequently his return to India as the Mahatma.

The one hour biography is a gripping work highlighting how India became independent and viewers would also get to hear the actual voice of Mahatma Gandhi during the telecast.
