Review Glimpses of World History

Jawaharlal Nehru õ 8 Read & download Free read Ô eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF õ Jawaharlal Nehru Glimpses of World History Free download ò 8 On New Year's Day 1931 Jawaharlal Nehru began a remarkable series of letters on the history of the world to his daughter Indira then thirteen years old Over the next thirty months Nehru wrote nearly two hundred letters in this series which were later published a. I really debated with myself on whether to give this 5 stars Which is strange considering I never touch non fiction This huge book was a birthday gift from my mom many years back and all this time it lay in the back of some shelf collecting dust and turning yellow because I simply could not gather enough interest to pick it upI could not be any happier to be proven wrong when I did get around to reading this though It was incredible to know anyway that this around 1000 page beast is simply a collection of letters written by Jawaharlal Nehru to his daughter Indira within a span of three years while he was in In some way that brought a sense of awe and admiration before even reading the first pageNow about the book Nehru s knowledge intellect and prose deserve the utmost praise If only modern Indian writers could take a page or two out of Nehru s book Nehru manages to hold your entire attention as he narrates the history of almost everything From the Indus valley civilization to the Egyptians and the Greeks and Romans and Turks and the Persians and the Chinese Nehru takes us on a journey spanning centuries and millennia and does this in a way far interesting than any history textbook you could find Nowhere does taking in so much information feel laborious or like an unpleasant chore since Nehru always remembers that his young daughter is reading this letter and is always careful to tell it like any father telling a story to his child Alongside this sea of information he offers his own opinions and insights on various world events and personalities Nehru s analysis is impeccable and this book makes us know about him almost as much as he makes us know about world history If you are interested to read and learn about India s first Prime Minister I would strongly suggest reading this book instead of reading a biographyI am deducting one star only because it didn t evoke the emotions in me that a well written fiction does but don t let that deter you This is a very very impressive book and deserves to be read and appreciated40 stars Recommended

Coming to recall my remote acuaintance many years ago with its fame in a Thai article on this outstanding Glimpses of World History written in captivity due to his struggle for freedom from British colonial rule I have since longed to read it in the original Early in March last year I was delighted to see it on display at the DASA BookCafe in Bangkok that s the end of my longish search in various bookstores Classified as Non fictionHistory at the back cover the book itself with its three line addendum after its title BEING FURTHER LETTERS TO HIS DAUGHTER WRITTEN IN PRISON AND CONTAINING A RAMBLING ACCOUNT OF HISTORY FOR YOUNG PEOPLE would be impressive to its readers from its 196 letters therefore it was definitely his labour of love to his daughter named Indira Gandhi by one of the most renowned prime ministers of India for seventeen years I later found its Thai translation but there re extracted incomplete letters so I didn t read it but kept searching for this one Apart from reading formidable Arnold Toynbee and other recent historians those keen on reading an overview of world history would find this a remarkable book worth spending one s time to read as affirmed as follows Visionary and idealist scholar and statesman of international stature Nehru was also an outstanding writer p i Thus its readability and authority have long been observed since his writings primarily for his thirteen year old daughter and obviously for young people welcome adult readers as well

I read this book because one of my best teachers recommended it to me I must say I enjoyed this book though I conveniently picked other books and procrastinated it at times The reason was the book s format was not very pleasing to the eye Nehru does intend to take you through the beginning of time to the then current political scenario of the world He does it very briefly and ofcourse leaps from one time to another one field to another but by the end gives you a proper panoramic view of the history and politics of the world that matters It was easier for me to read and also comprehend this book for a simple reason that the frame of reference was Indian or Eastern culture values or ideas Being able to see things from this perspective helped me draw my own conclusions better Also I found that Nehru is a socialist in nature meaning his ideologies tend to tilt left All in all I say these glimpses of history that he wrote for his daughter gives an insight to the world in ways that you can have a timeline in your head and also see the cause factors of various incidents of history and also remember them to some extent However for people who are already aware of most happenings of history this book will not really add much to your knowledge Now I have decided to read history books that go deeper than that of the brief analysis of Nehru s
