Who was he?

Jawaharlal Nehru is an important figure to the Indian people even now, being both their first Prime Minister and a key player in the struggle for independence. He lived during the mid-20th century, and was a political partner of another, better-known man: Gandhi. Despite the many years that have passed, there are still those in India and outside of it who continue to observe and follow his legacy. This legacy is one of religious tolerance, human rights, and equality.

Life many people, Nehru had many friends, family members, opponents, and other human connections. It is through these people that we have chosen to tell his story.
