  1. He was one very progressive man Vikas. If it wasn’t for him, we would have still been struggling to ban polygamy for Hindus. The right wing extremists had fought tooth and nail. Ambedkar and Nehru wanted the equality for all (castes, genders)then… (I remember Charakan wrote a detailed post on this) – I admire Jawahar Lal Nehru immensely.

      I agree IHM! I have read about the said bill. The Hindu Code Bill was diluted into some four bills to neutralize the opposition from fundamentalists!

    Nice snap, though I believe that the pose makes him look more like a tough general marching to his troops than the gentle, children loving human being he was.
    I think he was a great ambassador for India on the world arena and one reason why we are still together as a nation and in a democracy. But his economic policies threw us in the stone ages.

      Urban Indian,

      Yes others too have expressed that view. The baton btw is slightly tilted (statue) when seen from the lateral side.

      You have a good miscellaneous blog. I just visited it.
