Podcast | Kuldip Nayar, the Uncompromising Editor on the Emergency
“Indira and I knew each other very well. One day she cut her hair short and asked me how she looked. I told her she was beautiful earlier, but looked even more beautiful now.” – Kuldip Nayar recounted an anecdote when asked about his association with Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
The veteran journalist who passed away on 23 August 2018, had spoken to The Quint a year earlier, opening up on his arrest during the 1975 Emergency.
This podcast revisits the interview with Kuldip Nayar, who spoke on the events that led to his arrest, his love for mangoes, and how he coped with fly-infested meals at Tihar jail.
