  1. Reflecting on Nehru s political career, The Guardian wrote that if Nehru were a different person, India would have been a different country Such was the deep personal imprint of Nehru on modern India such was the unrivalled political power that he commanded.Such centralization of power in a person was not unique to India Rather it was the norm in Post colonial societies in Asia and Africa But what was different was how Nehru exercised his power And in that single difference lies the reason as to [...]

  3. There s no doubt that India s first prime minister, Nehru was a writer But, in his close to 17 years of leading the country 1947 64 , he had been writing fortnightly non official letters regularly to his Chief ministers was news to me The book is primarily an excellent compilation of his letters sorted chronologically and subject wise Nehru is frank, expresses his mind and strongly advocates his Chief ministers to reply back their own thoughts The letters on subjects like The Citizen and the Nat [...]

  6. This book deals with the letters written to his Chief Ministers by our beloved Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru during his tenure as the first PM of independent India They represent muse, reflective as well as profound thoughts regarding various contemporary issues during his tenure They reflect on his vision for India as a nation and as a civilization for years to come Unless you are an ardent fan of Nehru you will find the book boring.
