The Essential Nehru

Arnold Michaelis Interviews Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru

Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru's last interview in 1964 when he spoke to Arnold Michaelis gives us a good peek into Nehru as the visionary leader that he was. In this conversation, where his mood was thoughtful throughout, an aging Pandit Nehru speaks about a variety of issues including partition, Pakistan, China, use of atomic energy and India's progress in the field, agriculture, underemployment, democracy, his critique of Marx, philosophy, his views on renunciation, who the prime minister could be after him, and so on. This is a must watch for anyone who wants to understand the first couple of decades of the journey of India from 1947 till now..
