Jawaharlal Nehru And His Achievements


Jawaharlal Nehru belonged to one of the wealthiest families in India and was born in Uttar Pradesh. He took part in the Indian freedom movement. After the independence of India, he became the first Prime Minister of the nation. The reason why his name was inscribed in golden letters in history is that he formulated various social policies for the improvement of the life of people of India. However at the early phase of his tenure he had to face several hardships.


Acceptance of Power

He did not like the partition of India and had to agree to it reluctantly. After taking charge he gave his first speech called A Tryst with Destiny.


Nehru and Jinnah


During that time, there were conflicts in various parts of the nation. People thought that there were personal enmity between Nehru and Jinnah and that was the reason for the partition. But Jinnah wanted a country that was decentralized while Nehru opted for a centralized nation. Though there was no proof for this conflict, this could be said as an overview.


His Personal Qualities
