When I was the BBC's Delhi correspondent in the 1990s, I interviewed L.K. Advani on several occasions. He was always a forthcoming interviewee - sometimes a little irascible, but in this interview, by far the most personal I conducted with him, he clearly enjoyed looking back on his childhood and youth in Karachi, and his early involvement in Hindutva politics.
This photograph was taken on the first occasion I interviewed L.K. Advani, in July 1993.
