Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first and longest-serving Prime Minister, breathed his last on May 27, 1964. Also known as the Architect of Modern India, Nehru’s ideology and values always guide our actions and conscience even after 58 years of his passing.

He is one of the most well-known figures in Indian independence history. Nehru was not only a brilliant leader but also a well-known novelist whose timeless books are regarded to have made a vital literary contribution.

On the death anniversary of the first Prime Minister of India, here are some books that you must add to your reading list.

The Discovery of India
This book, written in a prison cell, is a conflicted yet determined mind’s exploration of his past. It is the acceptance of one’s country’s flaws, not with helplessness and self-pity, but with responsibility, hope, and action.

Glimpses of World History
Glimpses of World History is a narrative of the world’s history over the centuries and eras. This book is a collection of letters written by Jawaharlal Nehru to his daughter Indira during his three-year imprisonment in various Indian prisons. The letters were intended to give her a taste of the world and its history.

India and the World
Throughout his life, Jawaharlal Nehru’s writings have demonstrated a keen interest in global affairs and India’s status in the world. He understood that a nation can never be completely independent and that for India to truly advance as a country, it must make a mark in world affairs. Nehru would write to chief ministers and other cabinet ministers about decolonization processes around the world, lessons India could learn from other countries, and possible ways to foster cooperation and resist established power structures in international politics, all while explaining his core foreign policy.  In India and the World, Nehru offers an intriguing and unexpectedly opportune view of how India may face global heavyweights.

Amarnath Yatra 2022
The 43-day pilgrimage will conclude on August 11.

Amarnath Yatra 2022 is an annual Hindu pilgrimage that attracts thousands of Lord Shiva devotees from all over the world. After being suspended for two years due to the coronavirus pandemic, the sacred pilgrimage is all set to begin this year on June 30. The 43-day pilgrimage will conclude on August 11.

The online registration to visit the holy shrine of Barfani Baba has already started. It takes several days to reach the holy shrine to get to the temple because it is not easily accessible by road. So, to make the trip more comfortable for devotees, the Jammu and Kashmir government has started a helicopter service to reach the Amarnath cave from Srinagar.

For the first time, devotees can access the helicopter service directly from Srinagar. Here’s how!

Devotees will start the pilgrimage from Srinagar to Panchtarni, which is the last stop point located at an elevation of 3,500 meters, from where a 6 km trek takes pilgrims to the holy Amarnath cave. From there, devotees can either walk to the holy cave or take a horse or palki to reach the holy shrine.

Earlier, the helicopter facility was only available from Baltal and Pahalgam, which is the twin route to reach the Amarnath shrine, and from Pahalgam, pilgrims either walk or take the help of ponies and a palanquin facility.
