Henrique Antunes Ferreira during his journalistic activity interviewed Mrs. Indira Gandhi and Mr. Rajiv Gandhi as Prime-Ministers.
In the Lusophone World it is urgent to produce and disseminate news, mainly those which are focussing those countries and may be important for the Portuguese speaking nations. It is not needed that this idea should be concretised immediately, but one day it will happen as sooner the better. It would be an excelent idea to create a mini organization which would and could use the Portuguese language on subjects which interest people who speak it.
