    My grandfather was a very avid reader. He was the one who recommended books to me when I would spend hours just surfing bookshelves in our local library. It was through him that I got familiar with the works of Tolstoy , Pearl S Buck , Charles Dickens and some great Indian authors like Mulk Raj Anand , K.M.Munshi and Jawaharlal Nehru. I had read Glimpses Of World History by Nehru and loved it but somehow never read this beautiful little collection of letters Jawaharlal Nehru sent his 10 yrs old daughter Indira ( later known as Indira Gandhi ) when she was spending her summer at Mussorie , a hill station and Nehru himself was busy working in his home town Allahabad.This set of letters he sent , tell the story of creation of Earth and its evolution. Nehru covers them chronologically with letters on First Living Things , Early Men , Civilizations , Trade, Great Cities and many more. Such is the lucidity of his writing that at one point I felt , wish all books were written in this way.Another intresting point to be noted is that Nehru didnt spoon feed his daughter with all the facts . He just told enough to make her curoius , so that she was initiated in to the quest of knowing more about them. Now, that is what process of learning is all about.Here is my fav part of the book Boys and girls, even grown ups are are often taught history in a peculiar way. They learn the names of the kings and others , and dates of battle and like. But surely history does not consist of battle and few persons who became kings and generals. History should tell us of the people of the country , how they lived , what they did and what they thought .It should tell us of their joys and sorrows , of their difficulties and how they overcame them..With some really great illustrations , it makes a wonderful read not just for kids but also for adults. I can say its a refresher course on things we should know but hardly make an effort to think about..Highly recommended..

    ইন্দিরা গান্ধীর বয়স তখন মাত্র দশ বছর। গ্রীষ্মের ছুটিতে হিমালয়ের পাশে মিসৌরি গিয়েছেন বেড়াতে। বাবা জওহরলাল নেহরু তাকে রোজ চিঠি লিখতেন। সেই চিঠিগুলো নিয়েই এই বইটা। কয়েকটি নিছক ব্যাক্তিগত চিঠি। কিন্তু কি তার গভীরতা। ছোট্ট একটা মেয়েকে শিখিয়েছেন ইতিহাস, শিখিয়েছেন বাস্তবতা। কিভাবে মানুষ এলো, কিভাবে মানুষ সভ্য হল, কিভাবে জাতি গঠিত, কিভাবে জাতিগত সমস্যা সভ্য মানুষকে আবার অসভ্য করে তুলল সব কিছু সম্পর্কে নেহেরু সাহেব ছোট্ট কন্যা কে ধারনা দিয়েছেন চিঠিগুলোর মাধ্যমে। পুঁথিগত শিক্ষা থেকে অনেক উপরের লেভেলের এই শিক্ষা। কেন ইন্দিরা গান্ধী একজন প্রথিতযশা নারী হয়ে উঠবেন না? দারুণ একটা বই। সবার পড়া উচিৎ।

    Now, I know which book to gift my daughter on her 10th birthday….or may be year before. The Four Stars are not for the content of the book, but for the tone alone. Swami Vivekananda once said, "You cannot teach a child anymore than you can grow a plant. The plant develops its own nature. It also teaches itself, but you can help it go forward in its own way. The role of a teacher is to "loosen the soil a little, so that it may come out easily. Put a hedge around it. See that it is not killed by anything. Supply the growing seed with the materials for the making up its body, bringing to it the earth, the water, the air...and then your work stops. It will take all that it wants by its own nature. So, with education of the child, the child educates itself." And that is exactly what Nehru had done with these letters to young Indira. The letters are not exhaustive, but those provide enough information to ignite the curiosity in a young learner to explore the world of knowledge.

    "The Mahabharata came long after the Ramayana. It is much bigger book. These were the books written in India thousands of years ago. Who but the greatest of men could have written them? And although they were written so long ago, they live today in India and every child knows them and every grown-up is influenced by them"

    This is a wonderful little book about the history of the world for the perspective of at amateur historian as well the first prime minister of India. I was thoroughly impressed with Mr. Nehru knowledge about the world history, this too expressed in letters to his ten year old daughter. To think that this book could have been in a prison without references speaks to the author’s supreme intellect. Seventy years have passed since the first publication of Letters from a Father to His Daughter, history too has been rewritten. The theory of the Aryan invasion has been called into question. Overall it is a wonderful and insightful book. Favorite Quotes 1. We have to see what is good in our ways and customs and try to keep it, and whatever is bad, we have to throw it away. If we find anything that is good in other countries, we should certainly take it (p 62). 2. To work together is better than to work singly, and to work together for the common good is the best for all (p 65).3. This seems horrible but a man is afraid will do anything (p 72). 4. A famous French king once said L’etst c’est moi- ‘The State, it is I or I am the State. 5. The idea of religion came through the fear of the unknown (p 91). 6. To the Aryan death was better than dishonor or slavery (p 149)

    این کتاب را وقتی 15 سالم بود خواندم. با توجه به آنچه درباره ی هند شنیده بودم که خانواده ها وقتی میفهمند که دختر دارند یا سقط جنین میکنند یا زنده به گور، خواندن نامه های نهرو به دخترش چنان احترام نسبت به این مرد در من ایجاد کرد که او را برای خود سر مشق و الگوی زندگی قرار دادم و از او همان الگوی پدر-همسری را ساختم که هیچ گاه نتوانستم دز زندگی واقعی پیدا کنم.

    এই বইটাকে আমি রেটিং ৫ এ ৫ দিব। অনেক দিন সত্যি খুব চমৎকার একটা বই পড়লাম। স্বাধীন ভারতের অন্যতম স্থপতি পন্ডিত জওহরলাল নেহেরুর মেয়ে ইন্দিরা গান্ধী। ইন্দিরা গান্ধী পরবর্তীতে ভারতের প্রধানমন্ত্রী হয়েছিলেন। ইন্দিরা গান্ধী যখন ছোট তখন একবার সে কিছু সময় মুসৌরীর হিমালয় পাহাড়ের উপর ছিলেন। সে সময় নেহেরু সাহেব তাঁর কন্যার কাছে অনেকগুলো চিঠি লিখেন। এগুলো সাধারণ কোন, কেমন আছ মা? এই টাইপের চিঠি না। সভ্যতা, ইতিহাস-ঐতিহ্য, অর্থনীতি, রাজনীতি, সর্বোপরি মানুষকে উপজীব্য করে লিখিত এগুলো। এত জটিল ও গুরুগম্ভীর বিষয়গুলো পন্ডিত নেহেরু সাহেব এক বিস্ময়কর সহজ ভঙ্গিতে উপস্থাপন করেছেন। প্রতিটি স্কুল পড়ুয়া স্টুডেন্টদের এই বইটা পড়া উচিত এবং উচিত।

    The book is a collection of 30 letters written by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru , the first prime minister of India to his 10 year daughter Indira Priyadharshini later Indira Gandhi, who also became the prime minister of the country during a summer in 1928..Though the book might sound out of date for the current era, if you can go back in times, you'll definitely enjoy the book...Nehru's work kept him away from his daughter, it was difficult for him to spend quality time with her, staying away, letters were the only medium to be close to his daughter and probably the only mean to tell her about things that a father might tell his daughter during everyday conversation.. I had read an excerpt back in school, I got a copy of ,to gift my cousin who is about 10 yrs, the same age of Indira Gandhi then..Before giving away ,I read it of course..These are not mere letters to a daughter, but a way that developed a standing bond between a dad and daughter ...The book opens up with earth and universe..This book give the reader a glimpse of his personality were he is trying to reach out to his daughter in possible ways...He has a knack of explaining things in a simple way be it the big bang theory, Egyptian mummies or how man evolved to rule over other living being.....He moves on to speak about race, religion , he has interestingly written about the beginning of communication..Everything is so effortlessly conveyed for a 10 yr old to grasp..The essence behind the great Indian mythology Mahabharata and Ramayana is also explained....The book comprises every edge to make a child ponder on things, it opens up a child to the wonderful world around....Science, myth, history all finds a place..The illustrations makes the book a wonderful read...The book not only explains various facts, but also leaves room for further studies and thought, and that is the best part of it...

    لقد سهل علىّ نهرو فكرة أن أكتب عن هذا الكتاب ، اذ أن رسالته الأخيرة لابنته فيها كل ما قد يقال عن هذا الكتاب، و هى الرسالة الوحيدة التى تلمح فيها لماذا أرهق نفسه بكتابة هذه الرسائل ، وهى ليست الا تلخيصه لأحداث التاريخ و قرائته لها، و لا تحمل أى شحنة عاطفية من تلك التى يبثها أب لابنته سوى آخر رسالة و التى منها أقتبس:"ها نحن ، يا عزيزتى قد وصلنا الى ختام القصة. وليس لدى الآن ما أقوله، و لكن رغبتى فى أن أنهى خطاباتى اليك بنوع من التفاؤل هى التى تدفعنى الى كتابة هذا الخطاب - آخر خطاب!.........هكذا ينتهى السجن السادس لى ، وبعده أخرج الى العالم الواسعو لكم لأية غاية؟ ان معظم أصدقائى و زملائى موزعون بين السجون و بلادى كلها تبدو و كأنها سجن كبير!ما أكثر كمية الخطابات التى كتبتها، و ما أكثر ما استهلكت من الحبر و الورق، المصنوع صناعة وطنية! ترى هل يستحق هذا كله شيئا؟ هل وجدت فى كل ما حمله اليك كل هذا الحبر و الورق شيئا يهمك؟ ستقولين نعم بغير شك، لأنك تعرفين أن أى اجابة أخرى قد تؤلمنى. وأنتى تحابيننى بحيث لا يمكن أن تقدمى على هذه المخاطرة. و لكن ، سولء أعجبك ما كتبته لك أم لم يعجبك،فانك لن تبخلى على بالسعادة التى كنت أشعر بها و أنا أكتب هذه الخطابات ،يوما بعد يوم، خلال عامين طويلين.....و اياك أن تأخذى شيئا مما حدثتك به فى هذه الخطابات على أنه قضية مسلمةأو على أنه كلام خبير..رجل السياسة فى العادة يحب الادلاء برأيه فى كل موضوع ،وهو عادة يتظاهر بمعرفة أكثر مما يعرف فعلا!، و لذا فانه يجب مراقبته بدقة!.....و لكن قراءة الكتب وحدها لا تكفى ، فلكى تعرفى الماضى يجب أن تنظرى اليه فى مشاركة و فهم..لكى تفهمى انسانا عاش منذ زمن يجب أن تفهمى البيئة التى أحاطت به، و الظروف التى عاش فيها و الأفكار التى كانت تملأ رأسه.فانه من السخف أن نحكم على الذين عاشوا قبلنا كما لو كانوا يعيشون فى عالمنا و يفكرون كما نفكر.."و هذا قليل من كثير قاله فى هذه الرسالة تحديدا، هو الموضوعى كما أريد أن أكون :)

    "Letters from a father to his daughter" is a series of letters written by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first prime minister, to his daughter, Indira. It is not only a series of letters but according to me, an account of the experiences and thinking of Nehru. These letters seem to be written effortlessly, though it has complex content, so that 10-year-old Indira. The lessons given are indeed very complex for a person to understand at such a tender age. The letters tell us everything, right from the Big Bang theory to the epic era of Ramayana and Mahabharata. All in all, this book is very informative and easy to understand for young students such as me...

    Each chapter of this book by Nehru refreshes your smile, often inciting tears as well. The beauty of this book lies in its simplicity and purity which stirs up emotions from deep within. Nehru writes to his darling daughter Indira about the vagaries of nature, existence, and basic animal sciences along with essential morals derived from world history and Indian epics, Ramayana and Mahabharata, in the form of periodic letters. Indira would grow up to be the first and only woman Prime Minister of India, and probably the finest India ever saw. A short sweet bedtime read for one and all, it is sure to make your heart melt.

    "We imagine we are so important and little things annoy us and worry us. But what are these little happenings in the long history of the world? It does us good to read and learn something of these vast periods of history because we will not then worry about little things much." - JawarharlalNehru , Letters From A Father To His Daughter...◆ Genre: non-fiction/letters◆ 154 pages and first published in 1930. ◆ Former Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru wrote a series of letters in the summer of 1928 to his daughter Indira Gandhi who was in Mussoorie at that time. ◆ The letters were written she was eleven years old so the writing is very simple.◆ I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The letters deal with the history of the world, how it came to being, how civilizations evolved and such topics.  ◆ If you have always been interested in reading about the historical aspects of the world and have no clue where to start, I'd recommend this book. Nehruji had explained everything in the simplest of the words since it was actually meant for a kid. ◆ It's an educational book so everyone should give it a try and read it.110% recommended to kids. ◆ would i read this again? - yes.

    These letters are well written to awaken curiosity and love for nature & fellow beings in a 10 year old. Through this series of letters, Nehru has imparted moral values while teaching Indira to treat nature as book. The best thing about the letters was the way he related things(even from the stone age) with what Indira had witnessed in 10 years of her life.Though the letters were written about 90 years ago, the book will open new vistas for children, even today, as pointed by Indira Gandhi.As for a 20 year old, it's like revisiting history lessons. For me, that's a treat.

    Only the first chapter is more than enough not to let anyone to leave the book there. What was not here? Philosophy, History, Geography, Economics; everything. Mr. Nehru was certainly a great teacher.

    "Letters From A Father To His Daughter" is a fine collection of letters written by Jawaharlal Nehru to his daughter Indira Priyadarshini when she was 10. Through these letters, Nehru talks to his daughter about the story of the earth, civilisation, nature, history, race, languages, early man, tribes and much more. Written in a style that is amazingly simple, this book is a must read for children aged 8-12. This book opens a child's eyes to the beauty of the world around him/her. As for adults, it is a wonderful flashback of things we learnt a long time ago; things that were never quite this succinctly put. His concise writing in these letters is a marked departure from the lyrically rich works like "The Discovery of India". The illustrations in this book are eye-catching and will add to the reading experience. I highly recommend this book to children; it is timeless and the values that Nehru writes about, are universal.

    I loved the book and wished I read it when I was a little girl but its never too late for a wonderful as this. The book is voyage of beautiful understandings of JN about creations, existence and worldly affairs. The way he puts it all together and elaborates it, illustrates how families play vital role in reshaping the way we look at each other and understand each other, as well as accept each other with all differences. Beautiful read.

    Such a pleasing book! I really do not know if it was the actual form of letters that is published as a book here , they seemed highly edited and censored because it is hard to believe the letters had zero personal information of Chachaji and seemed like only a medium to educate and enlighten Indiraji . But the reading was such a wonderful experience .It was like a quick polishing to the school days education and an enriching summary of whatever I had learnt as a school girl . It is a collection of basic things we learned and a wonderful way to revise them at once with ease.Highly recommended for children. This should definitely be a part of the school education system also , I believe.
