- Discovery Of India
DetailsWritten over five months when Jawaharlal Nehru was imprisoned in the Ahmadnagar Fort, The Discovery of India has acquired the status of a classic since it was first published in 1946. In this work of prodigious scope and scholarship, one of the greatest figures of Indian history unfolds the panorama of the country's rich and complex past, from prehistory to the last years of British colonial rule. Analysing texts like the Vedas and the Arthashastra, and personalities like the Buddha and Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru brings alive an ancient culture that has seen the flowering of the world's great traditions of philosophy, science and art, and almost all its major religions. Nehru's brilliant intellect, deep humanity and lucid style make The Discovery of India essential reading for anyone interested in India, both its past and its present. About the Author Jawaharlal Nehru was an Indian politician and freedom fighter. He was the first Prime Minister of India and a leader of the Indian Independence Movement alongside Mahatma Gandhi. Nehru studied at Trinity College, Cambridge. A staunch representative of freedom, Nehru served several prison terms and was constantly in and out of prisons. He spent his time in prison writing, largely to his young daughter Indira Priyadarshini, the future Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
