Overview: Jawaharlal Nehru

He believed that failure comes only when a person forgets his ideals, his objectives and principles. He believed, what matters the most is what a person truly is, rather than what others think of him. His daughter called him a statesman, a saint. The nation, the world called him Pandit. Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, remembered for his great contribution to the country's independence, and the establishment of its democracy, was a man of great knowledge, values and principles. He was one of the country's great forefathers, who modern India owes its basic social and political qualities. His brilliance, political wisdom, foresight, diplomacy and courage helped India greatly to earn a distinct place in the world as a secular, socialist, sovereign and democratic republic. His autobiography, known as Jawaharlal Nehru, is a wonderful book that will help readers know this noble soul more closely and intensely.

Motilal and Swaruprani named the first of their three children Jawaharlal. The young Nehru successfully earned a distinct identity for his mature and extraordinary thoughts, and epistemic virtue. Motilal, a barrister coming from a Kashmiri Pandit family, sent his first-born to England at the age of sixteen. Nehru joined Harrow School there, and in a little time, earned a name for his knowledge and abilities. Later, he would join Trinity College, an institution famous for schooling some of the great personalities of the world like Srinivasa Ramanujan, G.H. Hardy and Isaac Newton. In his autobiography, an open-hearted Jawaharlal writes about his growing years_his days in Allahabad, his time in England as a school student and a college-goer. Inspiring, touching, and motivating, this autobiography by Nehru is a must-read for readers of all ages and tastes. This book is available for online purchase in India.

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. Published by Penguin India, this paperback book has the ISBN 10 number 014303104X and ISBN 13 number 9780143031048.

  1.  An Autobiography Jawaharlal Nehru. 19 September, 2013 On
    Whenever I read Pandit Nehru I feel like my father is writing to me. The quality of prose is exquisite and seldom other writer match this skill. Nehru's first book I read is 'Discovery of India'. But after reading 'Glimpses of world history 'I became staunch admirer of Nehru. When I was reading 'Glimpses of world history' I decided to read his autobiography. This is long book of 650 pages but book flows with the masterly prose of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. You can find plenty of quotable quotes in this book. This book was written in 1936 so it doesn't contains events of his after life. The basic thought process of this remarkable leader can be understood by reading this tome. Major portion of this book is related to working of congress and major events of freedom struggle between 1910-35. After a brief description of his lineage and childhood Nehru writes about the major events of freedom struggle. He writes in detail about Gandhi and their difference of opinion.
    Here are some beautiful lines which I marked while reading this book:-

    1. Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich by promising to protect each from other.

    2. Conceit, like fat on human body, grows imperceptibly, layer upon layer, and the person whom it affects is unconscious of the daily accretion.

    3. One extravagance which I have kept up will be hard to give up, and this is the buying of books.
