The first prime minister of free India, Jawaharlal Nehru, has been a widely adored figure across the country. However, as is the case with most public figures, there were some circles where the prime minister was unpopular, and his followers highly reviled. The vast and varied criticisms of Nehru weren't simply a matter of his personality and how he was adored by the women of the country, but rather they play with the fundamental question of whether he was a good enough prime minister for a country that was taking its first steps into existence. In Verdicts on Nehru: The Rise and Fall of a Reputation, Ramachandra Guha explains these instances and talks about how one can still find it difficult to be a Nehru supporter in current times. Read on to know more about what made Nehru and how the public received him in a country as wide and varied as India.
