Book Description

 Arun Bhatnagar’s second Book – Nehru Saga – derives its name and relevance from a letter of May, 1972 of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi to K. Natwar Singh, the then Indian Ambassador to Poland. A striking feature is an analysis of the political situation and the prospects for the approaching Lok Sabha Elections. The book is dedicated to Pandit Motilal Nehru (1861 – 1931) with whom the political journey of the Nehru Family really begins. When Indira was born to Jawaharlal and Kamala in November, 1917, in Allahabad, Motilal, the fond grandfather, prophesied, ‘This girl is going to be worth more than a thousand grandsons.’ Decades later, the grand-daughter (now Prime Minister Indira Gandhi) said in an interview aired on French TV that it was not only her father who had influenced her in nationalist politics and that the entire family – her paternal grandfather, grandmothers, her mother as also uncles, aunts and cousins – had been involved in the Freedom Struggle.

About The Author:

Arun Bhatnagar, a former member of the IAS, attended St. Stephen’s College, Delhi in the early sixties. After retiring as Secretary (Personnel & Training) in the Union Government in 2004, he worked with the National Advisory Council (NAC) and, later, as Chairman, Prasar Bharati, New Delhi. He has had postings in the President of India’s Secretariat and in the Indian High Commission, London. Bhatnagar’s earlier Book, ‘India: Shedding the Past, Embracing the Future, 1906-2017’, was well received as a historical narrative based on objective analysis of events and personalities. It depicted the early years of the twentieth century as a watershed and a turning point, with the All India Muslim League being founded in Dacca (Dhaka) in December, 1906. He has contributed to English dailies and magazines from time to time and lives with his family in New Delhi.
