Nehruvianism is the philosophy of Jawaharlal Nehru which he followed in his life through thick and thin.

 

And it is the amalgam of these four pillars:-

 

Pan-India secularism, Democratic institution building, socialist economics at home, and a foreign policy of non-alignment.

 

Those people who subscribe to the concept of Nehruvianism are known as ‘Nehruvians’.

 

There were lots of achievements of Nehru as the The first PM of India.

 

The first and foremost is the notion of ‘Indianess’ which he maintained throughout his life.

Namaste reader, My name is Yash, and books for me are like a medicine, which removes my ignorance and also helps me in behaving more like a human.Though I live in the world’s largest democracy, India, but when I look around, I realized that this democratic nation of mine has turned into a kind of feudal oligarchy or kleptocracy, where people from a particular community or I would say particular surname has hijacked this democracy, and the political parties in India has turned itself into a kind of family enterprises where the family members are the only shareholders. And I want to change this, and books are a weapon which is helping me, so that I can help others and my nation.Shukriya for reading this Thought of mine.
