A tryst with destiny

Whatever be the man's shortcomings, Nehru is right up there as far as his speeches are concerned. Two of his best are: A tryst with destiny and the Light has gone out of our lives . I have had the good fortune to read some of his books - notably Discovery of India and Glimpses of World History , and both are excellent. Nehru's control over the English language, his love for India, and the natural flow of his thoughts are worth emulating.

Agreed, his writing and oratorial skills were outstanding.

I have not read the books Discovery of India and Glimpses of World History. Are they good ?

I'm watching the serial "Bharat Ek Khoj".
