Lol I absolutely love this answer, not just for its amusing bathos, but it shows, without feint or fiction, the futility of high-flown rhetoric of revolutionary triumph, of which the leaders of newly independent countries were so fond of, which is what might have prompted the journalist in question to ask such a bland question.

It is as good as when a Western journalist asked Gandhi at the time of independence, "What do you think of the Western civilisation," to which he replied, "I think it would be a good idea!"
