Introduction: Jawaharlal Nehru, often referred to with the epithet of Panditji, is a large looming figure in Indian politics. He was the first PM of India and who has the record of being the longest serving PM till date. He ruled from 15 Aug, 1947 to 27 May, 1964. Such a long rule made him a critical figure in shaping the newly formed nation and its future path. Infact, even to this day, it is his legacy that is in rule. Indira Gandhi, daughter of Nehru, was annointed as PM of India from 1966 to 1977. During this time, she had tried to usurp the power by imposing the Emergency and was promptly ousted from the power by a large people's movement. However, the public memory is short. So, she returned to power 3 years later and ruled from 1980 to 1984. She was brutally assassinated by her bodyguard. Her rule is remembered for licence-raj. Indira Gandhi was succeeded by her son, Rajiv Gandhi, who was the PM of India from 1984 to 1989. His rule started with Anti-Sikh riots and eventually he lost power trapped in Bofor's scandal. However, to give him due credit he heralded telecommunications expansion and significantly reduced licence-raj. He was assassinated in 1991 by an LTTE suicide bomber. In 1991, after 44 years of India's independent nationhood, Nehru successors have been in power for 17(Nehru) + 15(Indira) + 5(Rajeev)=37 years. Today, Sonia Gandhi, widow of Rajiv Gandhi is the UPA chair-person, who have been in power from 2004, while her son Rahul Gandhi is tipped to be the next PM candidate of Congress. So, Nehru's influence continues to be seen to this day. Thus, he is a relevent topic for the modern day indians to understand and analyse.
