Self Intro..

On November 14, 1889, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru was born in Allahabad. His early education was provided at home by private tutors. At the age of fifteen, he moved to England and, after two years at Harrow, enrolled at Cambridge University, where he completed his tripos in Natural Sciences.

He was later summoned to the Bar by the Inner Temple. In 1912, he returned to India and immediately entered politics. Even as a student, he was interested in the struggle of all nations under foreign dominance. He was very interested in the Irish Sinn Fein Movement. He unavoidably became involved in the fight for independence in India.

In 1912, he was a delegate to the Bankipore Congress, and in 1919, he was appointed Secretary of the Allahabad Home Rule League. He met Mahatma Gandhi for the first time in 1916 and was greatly inspired by him. In the Pratapgarh District of Uttar Pradesh in 1920, he organized the first Kisan March.

He was imprisoned twice during the Non-Cooperation Movement of 1920-22.In September 1923, Pt. Nehru was appointed General Secretary of the All India Congress Committee. He visited Italy, Switzerland, England, Belgium, Germany, and Russia during his 1926 travels.

As an official delegate of the Indian National Congress, he attended the Congress of Oppressed Nationalities in Brussels. In 1927, he also attended the tenth anniversary of the October Socialist Revolution in Moscow. In 1926, Nehru had earlier played a key role in inspiring the Madras Congress to support the cause of independence.

He participated in the All-Party Congress on August 29, 1928, and he signed the Nehru Report on Indian Constitutional Reform, which bears his father’s name, Shri Motilal Nehru. In Lucknow in 1928, he was lathi-charged while leading a protest against the Simon Commission. On August 29, 1928, he attended the All-Party Congress and signed the Nehru Report on Indian Constitutional Reform, which bears his father’s name, Shri Motilal Nehru.

In the same year, he founded and became General Secretary of the ‘Independence for India League,’ which advocated for the abolition of the British connection with India. Pt. Nehru was elected President of the Indian National Congress’s Lahore Session in 1929, where complete independence for the country was adopted as the goal.

He was often imprisoned between 1930 and 1935 as a result of the Salt Satyagraha and other movements organized by the Congress. On February 14, 1935, he finished his ‘Autobiography’ in Almora Jail. Following his release, he flew to Switzerland to see his ailing wife and then to London in February and March 1936. He also paid a visit to Spain in July 1938, during the country’s civil war. He also visited China shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War.

Pt. Nehru was arrested on October 31, 1940, for attempting to organize an individual Satyagraha to protest India’s forced participation in the war. He and the other leaders were released in December 1941. On August 7, 1942, Pt. Nehru introduced the historic ‘Quit India’ resolution at the A.I.C.C. session in Bombay.

On August 8, 1942, he and other leaders were arrested and taken to Ahmednagar Fort.  This was both his longest and final detention. He was imprisoned nine times in total. He organized legal defense for INA officers and men accused of treason after his release in January 1945.

In March 1946, Pt. Nehru visited Southeast Asia. On July 6, 1946, he was elected for the fourth time as President of the Congress. From 1951 to 1954, he was re-elected three more times.

He was a modern and progressive thinker who wished to see India become a modern and civilized country. However, Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru had different points of view.

They also hold opposing views on society and civilization. Nehru desired a modern India, whereas Gandhi was of ancient India. Nehru was always looking for ways to move forward. Regardless of the country’s religious and cultural differences.

At the time, there was a push for religious freedom in the country, with the main goal of uniting the country. With all of this pressure on him, Nehru led the country in modern and scientific endeavors.

As Prime Minister, he accomplished much and influenced ancient Hindu culture. That was extremely beneficial to the Hindu widows. Furthermore, this modification granted women the same rights as men. These include the right to inherit and the right to property.

Although Nehru was a great prime minister, the Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan was a major source of concern for him. However, despite numerous attempts to resolve the dispute, the problem persisted.

He adored children and stated that they are India’s future. The children idolized him and dubbed him Chacha Nehru. As a result, his birthday is celebrated on November 14th as Children’s Day. Children will remember Chacha Nehru for his love and care for them forever. The country, too, will never forget what he did.

Thank you very much!
