Details: Product Description Jawaharlal Nehru was not only the first Prime Minister of India and a leader of our freedom movement but also a most prolific writer. To mark seventy years of Indian independence, Penguin Random House India would like to commemorate his contribution with a special boxed set consisting of three great works of literary and political importance-The Discovery of India, Glimpses of World History and An Autobiography. These books are a must-read for anyone interested in India's vast and fascinating history and understanding the man behind the nation we live in today. About the Author Jawaharlal Nehru was born on 14 November 1889 at Allahabad and educated in England, at Harrow and Cambridge. In 1912, Nehru returned home to play a central role in India's struggle for freedom from British colonial rule and then, as prime minister of independent India for seventeen years, went on to shape the nation's future as a modern, secular and democratic state. He died in office on 27 May 1964. Visionary and idealist, scholar and statesman of international stature, Nehru was also an outstanding writer. His three most renowned books-An Autobiography, Glimpses of World History and The Discovery of India-have acquired the status of classics and are all published by Penguin.
