Jawaharlal Nehru (1889–1964) was a prominent Indian statesman, visionary leader, and the first Prime Minister of independent India. Born into a privileged family on November 14, 1889, Nehru received his education at Harrow and Cambridge in England. Influenced by the nationalist movement, he returned to India and became a key figure in the struggle for independence against British colonial rule.
Nehru played a pivotal role in shaping the political landscape of India and was a close associate of Mahatma Gandhi. His commitment to democracy, secularism, and social justice was evident in his leadership style. Nehru’s stewardship saw the implementation of progressive policies, including the establishment of a mixed economy, the initiation of the Five-Year Plans for Economic Development, and the promotion of scientific and technological advancements.
Beyond his political contributions, Nehru was a prolific writer and orator, known for his eloquent speeches and insightful writings. His autobiography, “The Discovery of India,” remains a classic in Indian literature. Nehru’s tenure as Prime Minister lasted for 17 years until his death on May 27, 1964. Despite facing challenges such as the Indo-China war and the Indo-Pakistan conflicts, Nehru’s legacy endures as a symbol of India’s commitment to democracy and secularism.
