Description

During the struggle he spent over ten years in prison, watched others in his family jailed time and again, and led numerous protest marches and agitations. Working alongside Mahatma Gandhi, he helped India keep its tryst with destiny and become a free nation. Aditi De recounts the story of Jawaharlal Nehru's extraordinary life in this biography for young readers. Filled with charming anecdotes, it recounts episodes from Nehru's childhood, his fascination with books and scientific experiments, his student years in England, and how he was drawn to the growing struggle for Indian independence. Finally, she sketches his role as the first Indian Prime Minister, and how he shaped the newly-formed democratic republic. Packed with little known nuggets of information, and trivia about the times, this book in the Puffin Lives series brings alive the thoughts and actions of one of modern India's most important personalities.
