Chacha Nehru was undeniably one of the most charismatic leaders who could instantly connect with the masses. His intellectual acumen was widely recognized across the world and highly respected as well, and his love for English was unbound. Mahatma Gandhi had once said “If Pandit Nehru speaks while asleep, he will speak in English”.
Pandit Nehru believed in a balanced life and enjoyed his life to the fullest. His day would begin with a 45 min Yoga session followed by meeting people and listening to their concerns for an hour. He was an extrovert and never shy of jumping into a dance or indulging in pillow fight with co-workers. After a hectic day at work, he would wind up with literature, arts & music. Once in a few months, he would escape for a vacation and even risk his life in adventure sports.
Following are a few rare photographs of Pandit Nehru depicting his “cheerful side” and lighter moments.
