Description

Autobiography of the woman who was the sister, confidante and lifelong political associate of Jawaharlal Nehru.

Mrs. Pandit vividly describes the cultured and protected home she grew up in, the transformation brought about in it by Mahatma Gandhi, and life under British rule with its rigorous restrictions, its racial bigotry, and the harsh penalties it imposed on those who refused to acknowledge it.

This is above all a very personal account of a period of national history though the eyes of one who part in some of its great events. There are penetrating and entertaining anecdotes about world figures of her time, including Churchill, Tito, and John Foster Dulles, and rare portraits of her father, Motilal Nehru, and Mahatma Gandhi that only she, deeply devoted to both men, could have written.
