Today Indians are proud to claim ownership of a Constitution which has sustained democracy, human rights and the rule of law for over six decades. This book explains the often talked about topic of Jawaharlal Nehru and the Indian Constitution. It talks about the free and fair elections involving over 600 million voters, the smooth transfer of power and the demonstrated strength of unity in diversity that have made the so-called developed world wonder whether democracy has been part of the genetic construction of Indians. Also, it discusses the vision of India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru.
