    Anand Sharma (Ed.)

    Foreword: SONIA GANDHI



    About the Book

    <p>This publication, with its rich collection of articles and archival pictures, is both a remembrance of things past and a commemoration of Jawaharlal Nehru’s life and legacy. This tribute is a humble attempt to revisit the life, thought and journey of the tallest leader of his times, to cherish his rich legacy and gratefully acknowledge his historic contributions with a view to reasserting their durability and indispensability.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="font-size: 13px; line-height: 20.8px;">“Jawaharlal has the undoubted right to the throne of young India. His is a majestic character. Unflinching is his patient determination and indomitable his courage, but what raises him far above his fellows is his unwavering adherence to moral integrity and intellectual honesty.”<br /> <strong>— Rabindranath Tagore</strong></p> <p style="font-size: 13px; line-height: 20.8px;"><br /> “This familiarity, nearness, intimacy and brotherly affection make it difficult for me to sum him up for the public appreciation, but then, the idol of the nation, the leader of the people, the Prime Minister of the country, and the hero of the masses, whose noble record and great achievements is an open book, hardly needs any consideration from me.”<br /> <strong>— Sardar VallabhBhai Patel</strong></p> <p style="font-size: 13px; line-height: 20.8px;"><br /> “In bravery, he is not to be surpassed. Who can excel him in&nbsp;the love of the country? ...He is pure as the crystal; he is truthful&nbsp;beyond suspicion. He is a knight without fear and beyond&nbsp;reproach. The nation is safe in his hands.”<br /> <strong>— Mahatma Gandhi</strong><br /> &nbsp;</p> <p style="font-size: 13px; line-height: 20.8px;">“Jawaharlal Nehru was an outstanding man of letters, a militant freedom fighter against colonialism, the eminent architect of Afro-Asian unity and the policy of Non-Alignment. To all South Africans in the struggle he remains one of us, an activist in the fight against racism in its worst form—Apartheid.”<br /> <strong>— Nelson Mandela</strong><br /> &nbsp;</p> <p style="font-size: 13px; line-height: 20.8px;">“He lived to see victory and to move then to another epochal confrontation—the fight for peace after World War II. In this climactic struggle he did not have Gandhi at his side, but he did have the&nbsp;Indian people, now free in their own great Republic.”<br /> <strong>— Martin Luther King, Jr.</strong><br /> &nbsp;</p> <p style="font-size: 13px; line-height: 20.8px;">“My admiration for Gandhi’s and your [Nehru’s] work for liberation through non-violence and non-cooperation has become even &nbsp;greater than it was already before. The inner struggle to conserve objective understanding despite the pressure of tyranny from the outside and the struggle against&nbsp;becoming inwardly a victim of resentment and hatred may well&nbsp;be unique in world history.”<br /> <strong>— Albert Einstein</strong></p>
