Jawaharlal Nehru was a wise politician and a great statesman. He wrote a number of books and this is one of hem-The Discovery of India. India will never, in all probability, again see another leader of his stature, who, like Mahatma Gandhi, had greatness thrust upon him, in India's eventful midnight hour. Affectionately called Chacha/Uncle Nehru, he was loved by the masses. He also wrote very well, and was, with Mahatma Gandhi and others, one of the architects of Indian Freedom. He was also the first Prime Minister of India.
