This book is a collection of letters that Jawaharlal Nehru wrote to his daughter Indira when he was in various Indian prisons for three years. The letters were meant to introduce her to the world and its history.

In the first few letters, Nehru expresses his sadness for not being able to be around his daughter and give her the materialistic gifts that other parents could but he promises to give her a gift that he could afford; in the form of knowledge and wisdom through words that come from the very core of his heart.

Nehru wrote letters and covered the history of mankind from BC to the time he was writing the letters.

It was incredible to know anyway, that this around page beast is simply a collection of letters written by Jawaharlal Nehru to his daughter Indira, within a span of three years while he was in. In some way, that brought a sense of awe and admiration before even reading the first page.

Now about the book. Nehru's knowledge, intellect and prose deserve the utmost praise. If only modern Indian writers could take a page or two out of Nehru's book. Nehru manages to hold your entire attention as he narrates the history of almost everything.

From the Indus valley civilization to the Egyptians and the Greeks and Romans and Turks and the Persians and the Chinese, Nehru takes us on a journey spanning centuries and millennia and does this in a way far more interesting than any history textbook you could find.

Nowhere does taking in so much information feel laborious or like an unpleasant chore, since Nehru always remembers that his young daughter is reading this letter and is always careful to tell it like any father telling a story to his child.

Alongside this sea of information, he offers his own opinions and insights on various world events and personalities. Nehru's analysis is impeccable and this book makes us know about him almost as much as he makes us know about world history. If you are interested to read and learn more about India's first Prime Minister, I would strongly suggest reading this book instead of reading a biography.

I am deducting one star only because it didn't evoke the emotions in me that a well written fiction does, but don't let that deter you. This is a very very impressive book and deserves to be read and appreciated.There is a small page Postscript that has been added as an update written on November 14, , which gives the reader a brief synopsis of what happened in the later five years.

Tales of Empires A major part of these letters talks extensively about the rise and fall of empires around the world and development of civilizations as well. The best example is of Al- Afghani. Here was a man whose deep appreciation for human history allowed him to create from memory and notes, an epic history of the world without recourse to a library -- who would, in the progress of the letters, continually connect them to one another in one fabric of historical reflections.

His close association with the Indian National Congress began in ; in he became its president, presiding over the historic Lahore session that proclaimed complete independence rather than dominion status as India's political goal.
