Teri photo kyon ni Bhagat Singh lagdi nootan te...

14th November 2010

Today is the birthday of the first Prime Minister of India Pandit Jawarlal Nehru and it is celebrated as Children's Day since he was very fond of kids. Birthday of Gandhi is a national holiday; birthday of Dr. Radhakrishnana is celebrated as Teacher's Day. It's odd that I can't recall the birthday of any non Congress leader being celebrated as something in India.

This is also a source of frustration for the singer whose song I have used as the title of this post. It means “Why is your picture not used on currency notes, Bhagat Singh”. It indeed is odd as I have written about it earlier.

Every one has heard about Nehru's affair with Edwina Mountbatten - the wife of Lord Louis Mountbatten, the last Viceroy and first Governor General of India, there are a lot of other stories about Nehru, including conspiracy theories and gossip which you can check out if interested.
