Nehru: In The Spirit Of Revolution

Jawaharlal Nehru is not thought of as a revolutionary, yet he imagined himself as one, living in revolutionary times. What did he understand by revolution and why was he so keen to project himself as a revolutionary? He understood it in many different ways, and he pursued multiple objectives by adopting the term.

In the early years, especially in the inter-war years, Nehru summoned the spirit of revolution. In 1928, he published his little book on a week-long visit to Moscow in November 1927; and for the epigraph he chose the words of Wordsworth’s ecstatic reception of the French Revolution:

“Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,

But to be young was very heaven.”
