About The Book

It is now more than five decades since Jawaharlal Nehru passed away and it appears that many of the principles to which he strictly adhered, like secularism, are now under challenge by another generation. Nehru Revisited is a compilation of essays by some of India’s brightest intellectuals, conveying Nehru’s message to a new and somewhat sceptic generation. Together their views present different facets of Nehru in a way never before attempted by anyone. Constructively critical, academically well-integrated, the essays herein presented make for an excellent study of the man and his times.
