    sharp and witty

    Shashi Tharoor leaves one in awe of his ready wit and insight..brilliantly written, the book deals with Nehrus life and legacy also illuminates the defining impact that india had both in its politics and society. His modernity, scientific secularism , his unshakable faith in democracy , his policy of non alignment were fundamental pillar of Nehrus idea of India and is dealt in detail..its an intimate portrait of Nehru.

    Fabulous!

    Very well written and unbiased biography of India's first Prime Minister. Clearly shows the good, the bad and ugly side of Pundit Nehru's legacy and establishes how despite his evident failures, he was an instrumental force in India's freedom struggle and secular foundation. The book also outlines Nehru close friendship with other prominent leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel and how both of them acted as his mentor at some point or the other.

    Delightfully Insightfull

    If you are also the one who has stumbled upon this book, trying to find the relevance of nehru legacy, which is subject to choking now a days, then you are on the right track. This book is not from an admirer of the subject but not from a cynic either. Shashi Tharoor unfurls the Nehru and his legacy without being partial to the nature of biography, which demand impartiality and which is sadly gradually lessening in contemporary biographies.
    I would recommend to read some of the Nehur's origi...

    Excellent Book

    Excellent Book about the para­dox-rid­den Jawa­har­lal Nehru—a moody, ide­al­ist in­tel­lec­tu­al who felt an al­most mys­ti­cal em­pa­thy with the toil­ing peas­ant mass­es; an aris­to­crat, ac­cus­tomed to priv­i­lege, who had pas­sion­ate so­cial­ist con­vic­tions

    Worth every penny

    This book, Nehru: The Invention of India, was written in 2003 well before Shashi Tharoor joined INC in 2009. This is an Unbiased outlook on our first prime minister Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru. Great Addition to my Collection, got it for 299 only.

    Classy product

    The book tells you about both nehru and india during his lifetime.
    Shashi tharoor has been completely honest while writing it without thinking about his political link with INC.
    Its worth buying if you want to know about your first prime minister and what he did for the country, even the mistakes and the wrong opinion he had about the world polity.
