Carefully selected from among nearly 400 such letters, this collection covers a range of themes and subjects, including citizenship, war and peace, law and order, national planning and development, governance and corruption, and India's place in the world. The letters also cover momentous world events and the many crises and conflicts the country faced during the first sixteen years after Independence. Visionary, wise and reflective, these letters are not just a testimony to Nehru's statesmanship and his deep engagement with every aspect of India's democratic journey, but are also of great contemporary relevance for the guidance they provide for our current problems and predicaments." 9780670087723
