Description

The subject of the Seminar was the "Impact of Nehruism on Indian Literature"; the title of this volume is Nehru and Literature and the contents do contain some chapters and a few observations which do not limit themselves to the scope of the title. Still the appropriateness of the title cannot be challenged in view of the pervasive spirit that runs through all that has been essayed in this book which is like”refraction" made possible by the prismatic personality of Nehru.

Jawaharlal Nehru, the man of destiny of India, has left a rich legacy of thought and action which is not likely to vanish on the wings of time. The writings of this great humanist, visionary and man of action are characterized by universality and a tone of compassion lucidly suggestive of his belief in the significance of humanity and in humane significances. Integrity is the key-note of all that he wrote, said and did. His elegant and luminous prose establishes beyond doubt Gandhiji's remarks that "Nehru was pure as the crystal and truthful beyond suspicion". Directness and strength, born of his transparent sincerity, form the Warf and woof of his books among which his Autobiography is regarded by a British critic "as part of the treasures of English Literature".

Nehru often used to marvel at the amazing mind and spirit of man though man, in his own inimitable words, is "as peck of dust on a soap-bubble universe".

Nature had gifted Nehru with an extraordinarily rich imagination and heightened sensibility on which he brought to bear the absolute sincerity of a true humanist. He did not versify his thoughts but succeeded in evoking almost spontaneously through his fascinating prose a deep response which poetry draws.
