Arnab did it: A tribute to the ultimate Indian patriot

Arnab Goswami's claim that he was on ground zero during the Gujarat riots and his car was attacked a little distance away from the Chief Minister's residence, may have been deflated by his erstwhile NDTV colleague Rajdeep Sardesai. But these are petty barbs at a great patriot. When you are defending the nation, minor factual details have to be put aside.

After all there are several historical events in which Arnab's presence has been established beyond doubt.

Arnab is the ultimate Indian patriot, who was present either in person or in spirit, on every landmark moment in India's history. It was Arnab who was thrown from a railway carriage in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, just because of his brown skin.

Arnab sparked the revolt of 1857 by refusing to chew catridges laced with beef fat. He was the first Indian to scale Everest and the first human being to shout from the world's highest peak.

There are several such achievements that Arnab in his humility, chose not to tell the world about. But the truth cannot be silenced, especially if concerns Arnab Goswami. Here are some of the key moments in Indian history featuring Arnab.
