I went browsing through Google’s way-under-par Newspaper archive
trying to find Newspaper stories from the day.
Wasn’t easy, though I learned something momentous:
Mahatma Gandhi’s funeral took place on February 3, 1948 —
the day before Ceylon Independence!
I found three stories so far.
I am in more shock. This is a newspaper from Iowa!
Can you see an Iowan paper carrying any story about Sri Lanka today?
‘The Calgary Herald’, Canada on February 5, 1948. This is very annoying. Another example of Google dropping the ball. Bad scan. Google, obviously, can do better. Click to access original …
Page 4 of ‘The Indian Express’ from Madras. This is where I learned of the Mahatma’s funeral. Click to access.
