📈To classify this book as one of the historical accounts of India will be an incomplete assessment. Nehru is wrestling with many themes in this book- the vital links that connect past with the present and portend future trajectories; an individual’s sense of self and civilsational values he inhabits; and larger journey of humanity. The book tries to understand the pathways through which these themes feed into one another.
📚👉Definitely worth it, especially in our times,because
➡. Albert Einstein to write to Nehru: “I have read with extreme interest your marvellous book(The discovery of India)…It gives an understanding of the glorious intellectual and spiritual tradition of …India.”
➡. It is a very scientific, balanced, considerate, critical account of Indian history, by someone who was very well read, well experienced, with rational outlook and staggering command of the subject.
➡. It is authored by a great Indian, deeply devoted to his motherland. He subjects some of the Indian traditions to critical examination and yet doggedly justifies our ancient wisdom and knowledge.
➡And in times like this when it’s insinuated that being Indian means belonging to a particular religion or belonging to a religion means anti-Indian , this spectacular work by a true statesman who fought uncompromisingly for a secular India.
