I have a very sincere request to everyone trying to vilify Nehru, please click on this link to understand more of Nehru and to know more about the 9 years of life which he has spent in prison.
I would also request his vocal critics to read anyone of Nehru's 3 classics before vilifying him. Nehru's three classics, Glimpses of World History, an Autobiography and the best of it all, Discovery of India are gems .. The Discovery of India, the best, was written over a period of 5 months in 1945 while Nehru was undergoing his last of the 9 terms and the longest, a 3 year prison term at Ahmednagar Fort prison in Maharashtra from 1943-46.
|Seriously contemplating future course of action|
As different from other contemporary national leaders in other countries, Nehru's push was on science, technology and big industry, different from what Gandhiji envisaged for the country. It will be very difficult for others to match to his sense of patriotism and nationalism, while it's all the more easy to vilify him, out of ignorance and petty mindedness ..
Dr Homi Bhabha, Dr. Vikram Sarabhai, Dr. Verghese Kurien and Dr. MS Swaminthathan were Indian stalwarts who were requested by Nehru to help in this indigenisation push. Nehru also pushed the country to produce the best world-class engineers at the IITs and world class managers at the IIMs. The nation can never forget the great vision and foresight he had for his country and where India should be in the twenty first century. True to his vision, India has never belied the expectation of Nehru, India is now on GDP at PPP, the third biggest economy in the world, just behind China at #1 and United States at #2.
|Nehru and Gandhi in a lighter vein ..|
cordial, unperturbed and deeply knowledgeable Dr. Manmohan Singh taking India from being the #10 global economic power to the #3 position in ten years upto 2014, there is a lot of pressure on the present incumbent party, to perform exceptionally well, or else be kicked out.
