30 Old and Rare Photos of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru

in: Photography

jawaharlal-nehruJawaharlal Nehru was an Indian politician and statesman, a leader in the Indian Independence Movement, and the first Prime Minister of independent India. He was one of the founders of the international Non-Aligned Movement. He is often credited for the early success of five year plans, IITs and industrialization of modern India. He was the father of Indira Gandhi and the maternal grandfather of Rajiv Gandhi, who were to later serve as the third and sixth Prime Ministers of India, respectively. In this post, I have compiled a collection of rare old photographs of Pandit Nehru. Please have a look and don’t forget to share on facebook if you like these photos.
