Five myths about Nehru By RAMACHANDRA GUHA IN this, the week of the 40th Death Anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru, let us consider some of the myths that have gathered around his name and his legacy: Myth 1: Nehru promoted a `dynasty' This myth draws support from the fact that Nehru's daughter and grandson also served as Prime Minister, that his grand daughter-in-law has sought that post too, and, most recently, that her son, Nehru's great-grandson, has joined politics as the heir-apparent of the Congress party. In truth, Nehru had nothing to do with the "dynasty". He had no idea, nor desire, that his daughter would become Prime Minister of India. It was Mrs. Indira Gandhi who converted the Indian National Congress into a family business. She first brought in her son Sanjay and, after his death, his brother Rajiv. In each case, it was made clear that the son would succeed Mrs. Gandhi as head of Congress and head of Government. Thus, the "Nehru-Gandhi dynasty" should properly be known as the "(Indira) Gandhi' ...
