A true and great leader to the core ..
I feel whatever be the personal working style of Nehru, he is one of the greatest Indian politicians India has ever had, who could be put in seniority after Mahatma Gandhi. He who has spent almost ten years in British prisons fighting for Indian freedom from British exploitation and misrule.
Nehru has been a great literateur who has enriched global literature by his literary contributions through four of the greatest books on Indian culture and civilization,
- Discovery of India,
- Glimpses of World History,
- Letters from a father to his daughter and
- An Autobiography
|One of greatest works on India, ever ..|
The dead cannot defend themselves ...The other contender of the fundamentlist thinking group in the country have nothing to say when asked neither how many years Sardar Vallabhai Patel has spent in British prisons raising his voice against British oppression of Indians nor his literary contributions to the world ? Was Patel an opportunist who was careful not to antagonise the British and be in their bad books, history will say.
If India never had a leader and a global statesman like Jawaharlal Nehru, would we have progressed so much in Science and Technology ? Would we have had all the great establishments in Space Science, Atomic energy, IITs, IIMs, the green revolution, the white revolution and the like .. ?
If Nehru had not called Vikram Sarabhai aside in 1961-62 and had not asked him to start some basic and simple space experiments, initially sounding rockets to study the altitude variation of temperature and gaseous composition from Thumba, Trivandrum, to understand the truths of space and nature, would Indian space science and technology have matured to this state now ?
And Nehru knew exactly which all sectors of the economy and areas of science and technology, our crappy bureaucrats should be allowed to interfere and where all it should be left free to the specialists and subject experts.
