    Must read!

    All I thought about Nehru while growing up was that he was an alocoholic, weed smoking, success-craving playboy who sold of part of the country. How wrong I was!

    This book has opened my eyes and given me a whole new perspective to the great man and the history of India. Every word of his glistens with wisdom and the sheer breath of his knowledge and vision is breathtaking.

    This book is a must read for every Indian, to understand our longest standing PM, and to understand the principles and...

    True Masterpiece!!!

The best part about this book is contionous stress on karma or untiring passion for betterment of country. An infant's adolescent mind is nurtured by its parents. Its sheer god's gift to have a parent like this man for an infant country. His thrashing of religions on basis of quiescence is amazing.

    His depiction of 'Dams' as modern temples is again a work of far sighted statesman.. I thi...

    must go for it...

    it is good book...
    very elaborated history of india.....
    It is not a book of historical evidence by its very nature, rather, it is the keen observations of a severely intelligent mortal that delves into the philosophical and altruistic aspect of a nation’s history and the groundwork it presents to build a strong future foothold.

    Discovery well made

    This man was a better writer than a leader or administrator . History well written , but post independent works of many post independent authors about India's pre independent works are better than this .Give a read for the beautiful and precise handling of language.
