Hi Guyz, am starting a topic which might depress Nehru fans.
Let me start with positive facts about him. If i am wrong somewhere please help me correct it.
positivezz (all of you know thizz) :
1. Freedom fighter
2. First Prime Minister of India
3. His birthday celebrated as Childrenz day
4. His generation still continues to rule India (positive to him not to people)
Now the other part
negativezz (most of you dont know this) :
1. Most disabled leader
2. He was not ALONE
I will quote certain alleged facts to support my points. The two of the three major wars, Sino-Indian war (1962) and First India-Pak war(1965) were fought during his regime and we lost most of the regions to China and Pakistan. Now it is alleged that the terror outfits are operating from POK. As most of you know a cold war was going on between Patel and Nehru. Worse than that was the cold war between Rajagopalachari and Nehru. Many despised him. His private seceratry, M.O. Mathai writes certain facts about Nehru which were meant to degrade his name. Though the book was a biography, it indirectly shows that Mathai despised Nehru a lot. Mathai writes about some of the illegal relationships that Nehru had during his period. Nehru had a relation ship with Lady Mountbatten(Edwina) which Lord Mountbatten itself knew it. Lady Pamela , daughter of Lord Mountbatten, writes in her book about their relationship “…towards the end of the 15 months we spent in India, the immediate attraction between my mother and Pandit ji blossomed into love. My mother had already had lovers, my father was inured to it, but the relationship with Nehru remained platonic“.
Mathai writes in his book ‘Reminiscences of the Nehru Age’ (but now suppressed by the GOI), “a young woman from Benares arrived in New Delhi as a sanyasini named Shraddha Mata (an assumed and not a real name). She was a Sanskrit scholar well versed in the ancient Indian scriptures and mythology. People, including MPs, thronged to her to hear her discourses. One day S.D. Upadhyaya, Nehru’s old employee, brought a letter in Hindi from Shraddha Mata. Nehru gave her an interview in the PM’s house. As she departed, I noticed that she was young, shapely and beautiful. Meetings with her became rather frequent, mostly after Nehru finished his work at night. During one of Nehru’s visits to Lucknow, Shraddha Mata turned up there, and Upadhyaya brought a letter from her as usual. Nehru sent her the reply; and she visited Nehru at midnight… Suddenly Shraddha Mata disappeared. In November 1949 a convent in Bangalore sent a decent looking person to Delhi with a bundle of letters. He said that a young woman from northern India arrived at the convent a few months ago and gave birth to a baby boy. She refused to divulge her name or give any particulars about herself. She left the convent as soon as she was well enough to move out but left the child behind. She however forgot to take with her a small cloth bundle in which, among other things, several letters in Hindi were found. The Mother Superior, who was a foreigner, had the letters examined and was told they were from the Prime Minister. The person who brought the letters surrendered them…I made discreet inquiries repeatedly about the boy but failed to get a clue about his whereabouts. Convents in such matters are extremely tightlipped and secretive. Had I succeeded in locating the boy, I would have adopted him. He must have grown up as a Catholic Christian blissfully ignorant of who his father was.”
Shankar Ghose writes in his book ”Jawaharlal Nehru, a Biography“ that Nehru had a relationship with daughter of Sarojini Naidu, Padmaja Naidu and also quotes an instance when Padmaja Naidu threatened to commit suicide when she saw Nehru with Lady Mountbatten. These are only known relationships. Only God knows still how many women were in his life.
I am sorry if i had hurted the feelings of Nehru fans. I have taken the notes of the writers who have written
