Today when the authoritarian demagogues, the strongmen bullies, the mafia masquerading as leaders, the crypto-nazi thugs and the murderous junta have waged a heinous tirade against the liberal ideals and the democratic values that the persona of Nehru epitomised, the man is more relevant and inspiring than ever before.
This book consisting of Nehru’s writings and the articles of many prominent figures discussing Nehru is a timely and much-needed collection. Prof Purushottam Agrawal has edited this valuable and important volume. His introduction profoundly underlines Nehru’s significance in our turbulent times as well as pokes us to submerge ourselves in re-discovery of India and the world.
