This autobiography is believed to have had been written between 1934 and 1935, while he was in prison. It will not be an overstatement to say that without this great personality, and some others like him, the country would not have become the largest democracy of the world. His autobiography is a vivid account of the changing political scene in India. In prison for his unafraid activities to free India, Nehru was confident and hopeful that the country could be rid of colonialism. He believed that India possessed all the qualities of an ideal sovereign democratic republic. Therefore, it should fight hard to break free from its imperialist captors_the colonial masters_and retrieve its lost glory.
Jawaharlal Nehru presents an insight into the freedom movement of India. The time was difficult for the country and its people. A change was taking place. It manifested itself on all fronts_be it political, social, economic, or cultural. The Raj was slowly but clearly becoming aware that India was awakening. It was a lion that slept for years, for ages. But finally, its hibernation was over. It was stronger, vigorous, and more determined than ever before. The British Raj had no choice but to accept the truth that the end to their dictatorship and oppression was imminent. The time had come for them to wrap up and leave.
