Jawaharlal Nehru was the first Prime Minister of India and ruled from India’s independence in 1947 until his death in 1964. He was a central figure in politics both before and after independence and ‘is considered to be the architect of the modern Indian nation-state: a sovereign, socialist, secular, and democratic republic.’ (Wiki) He was a prolific writer, and had a number of books published including historical accounts of Indian history, his autobiography and a collection of letters he wrote to his daughter when she was a child at boarding school.
