Penguin Books India, 2004. Softcover. Book Condition: New. . (illustrator). 16 x 24 cm. Through all its details there runs a deep current of humanity which overpasses the tangles of facts and leads us to the person who is greater than his deeds and truer than his surroundings.` ? Rabindranath Tagore Jawaharlal Nehru`s life was closely intertwined with the history and destiny of modern India. His Autobiography, written between 1934 and 1935 when he was in prison, is more than the personal story of an individual?it is also an account of the political awakening of a nation, its struggle for freedom from British rule, and its search to reshape itself as a modern society, rid of the cultural and economic shackles of the past. Through this narrative, written with extraordinary eloquence and honesty, and illuminated with vibrant descriptions of Mahatma Gandhi and other leaders of the national movement, emerges the portrait of the author himself?a complex and introspective personality with a brilliant and questing mind, a deep love of nature, an engaging zest for life and, above all, a passionate commitment to democracy and secularism.

This is as fine a leaders autobiography as you can find anywhere in the world. Nehru's power of expression is powerful and its worthy of being read before a judgement is passed on the man and his times. --By Arjun Balakrishnan on July 14, 2013

Review Text

  • By Twisha on 23 July 2013

    Nehru's account in his often poetic, flowery and beautiful language is poignant and revealing. His autobiography gives a first hand account of India's struggle against imperialism. This book also shatters the myth that Nehru was an acolyte of Gandhi, he was a statesman in his own right and his opinions and approach was very different on many matters from that of Gandhi. Also an important work for understanding the ideas that shaped the birth of a nation post 1947.

    If you are interested in India and its history this is a great book to read alongside Nehru's Letters to A Nation and Glimpses of World History. In his autobiography Nehru tells only a little about his childhood , but he writes with humility and honesty about the events that made him a statesman. I hadn't realised that Nehru was such a wonderful writer.
