With Rare Letters by Gandhi, Nehru and Patel Nehru - A Troubled Legacy raises a fundamental question. Have we yet made an honest assessment of Nehru and in effect, an honest assessment of Indias contemporary history? To investigate this significant gap, the author digs deep into historical records and in turn, raises several pertinent questions. Was Nehru truly a 'great democrat' as many of his acolytes suggest or was he just cleverly grooming his daughter for the top job and dislodging her potential challengers from key positions in the party and government? Was he really a 'secular' person or was secularism a mask for his disdain, nay, hatred for Hinduism? Was he a man of principles or did he adopt double standards whenever it suited him? Did he ever have a proper measure of Indias defense needs or was he foolhardy when it came to defense matters? Did he take a strong, principled stand against corruption or did he go out of his way to protect and promote cronies and some of his favorites who faced serious charges of corruption? Was he the great leader of the Congress and India as he has thus far been made out to be or was he a person given to human frailties like being petty and manipulative? A scholarly and dispassionate analysis of these and many other ignored or hidden questions sheds new light on Nehrus handling of the nation and its long-term impact on Indias national character. A must-read for anyone interested in understanding the complex relationship Nehru had with our nation-builders like Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel and Dr Rajendra Prasad, as also in unraveling the true state of Indian affairs pre-Independence and in the decades after Independence beyond what the propaganda machines have fed us over the years. 'Why is it that with all the will in the world, I cannot understand what is obvious to you? I am not as far as I know suffering from intellectual decay. Should you not then set your heart on at least making me understand what you are after?' - Mahatma Gandhi to Nehru "You are in habit of proclaiming that you stand by yourself and represent nobody else. At the same time, you call yourself a socialist sometimes, a full-blooded socialist. How a socialist can be an individualist as you regard yourself beats me. The one is anti-thesis of the other." - Subhas Chandra Bose to Nehru ISBN - 9788183284424
