schema:description""While most selections in the collection focus on the building of Nehru's India, a few have been included to reflect the person behind the politician and administrator. These profiles and reflections showcase an intellectual and philosopher with a remarkable range of interests and erudition who was also a warm colleague and comrade."--BOOK JACKET."@en
schema:description""The speeches selected and introduced by Mushirul Hasan in this important collection help to answer these questions in Nehru's own words. We see through them the development of Nehru's vision for free India and the actual process of transforming the blueprint into reality. His ideas for India's internal development were inextricably linked to its role and position in the world. So we are also privy to the panning out of India's foreign relations (especially those with Pakistan) and its emergence as a respected voice in the international arena - much like its position in today's world."."@en
