INFA IS BORN
...The inaugural message Nehru gave INFA ran: " I'm interested in your new journalistic project which will provide a new and specialised news service and syndicated columns. I send you my good wishes for it."
...For the first anniversary of INFA, Nehru sent another message: "I'm glad to learn that your India News and Feature Alliance has made a good progress. I send you my good wishes for it."
.... Over the years, INFA has grown in strength. Its succeeding anniversaries were presided over in turn by B.P.Sinha, Chief Justice of India, Lal Bahadur Shastri, when he was Home Minister, Lok Sabha Speaker Hukam Singh, and Zakir Hussain, at the time he was Vice-President. Prominent among those who blessed it at birth and attended every anniversary were Morarji Desai and Mehr Chand Mahajan, former Chief Justice of India. .
