Some thoughts on India's first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru.
1. Pandit Nehru had a less than mediocre academic record, earning what was called a "Gentleman's Pass" from Oxford University.
No other scion of the Nehru dynasty would graduate for the next 70 years.

2. Pandit Nehru was less than a successful lawyer, which left him with a lot of free time to indulge his other pleasures.
This was in stark contrast to Sardar Patel, who left a flourishing law practice to jump into the freedom movement.

3. Pandit Nehru became President of the Indian National Congress after Shri Motilal Nehru - his father - urged Mahatma Gandhi to give him a chance.

The announcement by the #POTUS that he is replacing National Security Advisor LTG H R #McMaster with #Ambassador #JohnBolton is great news. This is an over due change that I wish Mr #Trump had made long ago.
John #Bolton is probably the most experienced and capable #diplomat in America today. He will be coming in at a critical time when the #President needs solid advice on dealing with #Iran, #NorthKorea, #Russia, #ISIS, and an array of other threats.
As for LTG #McMaster, I thank him for his service and wish him the best in the future. That said, there were issues, as I see them, regarding the #General’s tenure.
