This volume covers two months of Nehru's Prime Ministership from 1 November to 31 December 1957. One of Nehru's major concerns in this period was food scarcity. Intensive cultivation and cooperative farming figured prominently in his prescription for achieving rapid growth in agricultural production. The Second Five Year Plan recognized the importance of industrial development for India's long term progress. Though Nehru was not averse to credits from the industrially advanced countries he wanted greater emphasis on generation of resources internally and highlighted the importance of the cooperative movement and reliance on self help. The recommendation of the Official Language Commission to replace English by Hindi for official purposes caused some apprehension in South India. Nehru was of the view that a decision in the matter of replacing English could only be largely by consent. Nehru took special interest in the North Eastern region of India. He realized that the region demanded intelligent interest and help from the rest of India. Of special mention is the large number of items in this volume about Nehru's views on children. He wanted the. public institutions to have a motto inscribed on their walls that children must be given the first place in our thinking and in the various things that the family or the group or the state does. In the international arena Nehru once again demonstrated his moral stature when he was called upon by intellectuals from India and abroad to exert his influence on the United States and the Soviet Union to bring about a cessation of the armaments race. As regards Pakistan Nehru was sure that no superficial approach would solve India's difficulties with that country. All the governments that had existed in Pakistan had based themselves on an Anti India Policy trying to divert the people's minds from other questions. He was however optimistic that a time would come when the people of Pakistan would try to face the issues before them in a more reasonable manner. This volume contains a large number of speeches which throw light on the working of Nehru's mind. One seminal aspect of these speeches is his tireless references to Mahatma Gandhi's leadership during the Freedom Movement. 802 pp. N° de ref. de la librería 74817

Acerca de


Part of the Selected Works of Jawaharlal Nehru series, this volume includes lectures, writings, letters, speeches, and other literary works of Nehru, covering two months of his Prime Ministership, from 1 November to 31 December 1957. It reveals his wide range of interests in both national and international affairs. Chapter 1 discusses general perspectives, followed by national progress. The subsequent chapters show Nehru's concern for food scarcity. Intensive cultivation and cooperative farming therefore figure prominently in his prescription for achieving rapid growth in agricultural production. The documents also underline the importance of industrial development for India's long term progress and how this was to be achieved by the generation of resources internally. Due emphasis was laid on cooperative movement and self-help.

The volume discusses Nehru's appointment of the Official Language Commission and his special interest in the northeast India. It also highlights his thinking on issues like disarmament, peaceful-coexistence, Kashmir as well as India's relations with Pakistan. A collection of several speeches throw light on India's heritage, child care, Mahatma Gandhi, and India's future prospects.
