Rekindling Nehru's Intxsernationalism

Many of those who preceded me in this Memorial Series have looked back to Nehru's life and work in India and appraised their significance for India. In such a series, some measure of looking back is inevitable; but I wish to speak more of what Nehru left, than of what he did; to make my glances to the past the basis of viewing Nehru's legacy, and of glimpsing its significance for a future that will take us to another era. And, in doing so, I want to place emphasis not on his legacy to India, but to the worldthough they are, of course, entwined.
