Jawaharlal Nehru (1889-1964), the first Prime Minister of India after independence from Great Britain in 1947. Nehru gained international stature for his leadership, so much so that the "Nehru jacket" became a fashion craze for awhile. Old newsreels cover events both inside of India and in the world, as Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi together led the nation to independence. Nehru's daughter Indira Gandhi is constantly seen alongside her father, as she herself obtains the training necessary to eventually walk in his footsteps. Dying in 1964, Nehru was spared the experience of the assassinations that would cut down his beloved Indira and her son long before their time. Why I created this Portrait? This Portrait is sketched to present our Principal Ms. Neelam Gandhi on the occasion of Children's Day, 14th November 2008. Now this artwork is in the Principal Office. It took approx five hours to complete the task. This is my one of the best sketch so far.
