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