Shashi Tharoor Ë 4 characters

Nehru: The Invention of India characters º 104 Shashi Tharoor Ë 4 characters Al example Shashi Tharoor also analyses the principal pillars of Nehru’s legacy to India democratic institution building staunch pan Indian secularism socialist economics at home and a foreign policy of non alignment all of which were integral to a vision of Indianness that is fundamentally contested today. It is not easy to write a biography of a towering and complex personality like Nehru and not end up short Everyone interested in India and its history has an opinion on Nehru and often they are diametrically opposite to one another Tharoor like me is an admirer of Nehru and believes that his contribution to India is immense This naturally has its effect on his portrayal of Nehru and so this book should not be viewed as a comprehensive study of the man or of all his achievements and failures I see this book as another perspective on Nehru and a well written one Nowadays in India and particularly in the Indian diaspora it is fashionable to denounce Nehru as the lotus eater from Kashmir and as one who ruined India s economic development and also as one who encouraged a pseudo secular culture in India Tharoor challenges this well in his book and shows the legacy of Nehru and the India that he tried to build on the pillars of democratic institution building staunch pan Indian secularism socialist economics at home and a foreign policy of non alignment In addition I found that Tharoor brings out certain aspects of the past which are generally not highlighted in the teaching of history in our schools in India For example it was his father Motilal Nehru whose liberal and rationalist temperament that gave the son his scientific inclinations and agnosticism Motilal had no time for the self appointed guardians of any faith abhorred bigotry and had contempt for Hindu communalism which mirrored the Muslim League Motilal was also moderate and believed in compromise to find common ground One can see that Jawaharlal Nehru imbibed all these ualities I had never known that Motilal was such a significant personality For all those Indians who talk ill of Nehru s independent thought process Tharoor gives some interesting snippets Nehru wrote in 1927 England in order to save herself from extinction will become a satellite of the US and incite American imperialism to fight by her side On China in the 1940s he writes that a communist victory would not necessarily mean a rule by the principles of Marx the role of the small peasant would ensure a departure from pure communism He also speculates in the 1940s that Britain and the US will join together to create a powerful Anglo Saxon bloc to dominate the world Tharoor writes about another little known and interesting snippet about Nehru s democratic instincts Nehru himself penned an pseudonymous essay in the Modern Review in the late 1930s warning the countrymen to put a check on Nehru and stop him from becoming a Caesar as he has all the makings of a dictator in him This was because he was conscious of the risk that power and in particular mass adulation could turn one s headThere have been many who denounce on his conduct of foreign policy Still I am in agreement with Shashi Tharoor when he says Nehru projected a different ideal for India on the world stage The force of example the nobility of aspiration and the articulation of India s interests as those of a humanistic universalism all served to give Nehru s India stature India did not speak in terms of nation state rivalry or patriotic chauvinism Nehru sought a loftier place for India on the world stage For all its flaws this credibility was not easily achieved Such idealism obviously does not pay much dividends nor is it possible for any nation to sustain it consistently But it shows Nehru s vision of an India inspired by his tutelage under Gandhi and at the dawn of India s independence in the late 1940s there was a case for such idealism The book brings out Tharoor s passion for India through Nehru Tharoor himself is a citizen of the world and was an UN official and through his literary abilities he paints a composite picture of Jawaharlal Nehru With the rising middle class in India which like elsewhere tends to be right wing sectarian and parochial this book is a good balancer for the young of India to understand the ideals of the Nehru Gandhi vision of India
