Who was Nehru?

Who was Nehru?

Jawaharlal Nehru (1889-1964), was the father of the Republic of India. He came from an upper class family and studied in England before returning to India in 1912. He became a close associate of Gandhi in the National Congress party which was devoted to gaining independence from Britain.

Pandit (a title meaning ‘learned man’) Nehru, however, believed that socialism and industrialization should be India’s aims rather than the rural programme of Gandhi. Nehru was prime minster of India from independence in 1947 until his death. He was a world statesman and leader of the non-aligned nations (not closely linked to the Soviet Union or the USA), who was loved in his own country and respected throughout the world. His daughter, Mrs. Gandhi, was to fill her father’s position after his death.
