Few words on life of Jawaharlal Nehru

 few words of jawaharlal nehru - by rejugihs@yahoo.com
Born on 14th Nov 1889 in Allahabad in India, Jawaharlal Nehru became first prime minister of independent Indian and initiated India's nonalignment policy in foreign affairs.

His father, Motilal Nehru governed a political background. They preferred English over Hindi and lead a luxurious home. His tutors were English or Scottish and he joined the Theosophical Society at 13.

At the age of 15 Nehru left for England, where he studied at Harrow and Cambridge. In London he was attracted by Fabian ideas; nationalism and socialism from this time on provided his intellectual motive force.

Nehru practiced law with his father and became active in home rule league by virtue of a political issue regarding imprisonment of Annie Besant. This led to his involvement in nationalist movement. In 1916 he got married to Kamala Kaul, of an orthodox Kashmiri Brahmin family. They had one daughter (later Indira Gandhi, third prime minister of independent India)

He was greatly influenced by Mohandas Gandhi. Ultimately he joined Gandhi after the Amritsar massacre of 1919, in which some 400 Indians were shot on orders of a British officer.

In 1920 Nehru came in touch with the kisan, the peasant majority. The overwhelming poverty of India filled him with sorrow and shame. This provoked sympathy for the underdog which characterized many of Nehru's later political moves. This led him to get devoted to the holy Gita and he started practicing pure vegetarian food with a daily practice of yoga.

In 1921 Nehru followed Gandhi in sympathy with the Khilafat cause of the Moslems. Nehru was drawn into the first civil disobedience campaign as general secretary of the United Provinces Congress Committee.

Nehru remarked, "I took to the crowd, and the crowd took to me, and yet I never lost myself in it." Nehru here articulated two of his most distinctive traits throughout his career: his involvement with the people and his aloof and lonely detachment. In 1921 he was imprisoned for the first time.

In prison his political philosophy matured, and he said that he learned patience and adaptability. Imprisonment was also a criterion of political success.
