Event Description : The Nehru Memorial Museum and Library cordially invites you to a Workshop on ‘Nehru’s India’.

Our commemoration takes the form of a reflection on Nehru and his world. His universe obviously included India, but it embraced all of humanity. As he shaped India in so many different ways over more than five decades, he was aware, more than most of his generation, that it was an India in the world, not an India locked into itself. He ceaselessly reflected upon how this particular was related to an universal and how they shaped each other. Perhaps India itself provided a model of it, of how the immense multiplicity within India could constitute the larger entity, which he summed up in the formula, “unity in diversity.”
To this end, the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library is hosting a series of three events, each with a distinct focus and thematic coherence.  This workshop is the second of the three events and will focus on how Nehru wished to shape India. It will also examine the contested nature of his legacy and how an emerging democracy fostered informed critical debate on the leadership, and the many dimensions of public life. All are open events and aim to provide a platform for original and creative scholars to share their approaches with us.
