Jawaharlal Nehru

Jawaharlal Nehru  was born in Allahbad the son of a lawyer whose family was originnaly  from Kashmir. He went to school in England at Harrow School and then at Trinity college and then Cambridge. He studied Law at the inner Temple in London. He returnred to India in 1912 and practiced law for a couple of years. In 1916 he married Kamla Kaul and the following year he had a daughter named Indira Gandhi.
In 1919 Nehru joined Indian National Congress which was fighting for independense for India. He was very very inspired by Mohandas Karamchand Ghandhi. During the 1920's and 1930's he went in jail repetedly.
My opinion on Nehru is he was a strong leader. He helped Ghandhi gain Independence from the
British. He was very good at speaking and arguing with the British. Nehru like Ghandi never belived in Violence. Nehru studied very had in law so that means that he was very dertimened. Nehru then became  first Prime Minister of India.
My questin or Challenge to you is would you want to meet Nehru if you were alive in his time?
Would you want to follow his principles?
