Nehru (and Indira) in China
Wonderful pictures of Nehru and his daughter, Indira Gandhi, visiting China in October 1954 - possibly in public view for the first time.
Relatives in Delhi recently came across a package of photographs they had been given twenty years ago by a retired Indian army officer who was emigrating. They contain high quality photos of one of the most important of Nehru's visits overseas. In the 1950s, Nehru coined the phrase 'Hindi Chini bhai bhai' (India and China are brothers). In 1962, the two countries were at war - a conflict which India lost and which is reputed to have hastened Nehru's death two years later.
You can see the glamour of Indira Gandhi, looking much younger than her then age, 36. I am fairly sure that the Chinese leader in the photo above is Premier Zhou Enlai.
All these photos have recently deposited with the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library in Delhi.
For those who think Nehru had a love for the white skin !
Y Nehru was never really a Hindu ! He read the vedas ! As per the Vedas - the Hindoo Gods are Asuras - DEMONS ! dindoooohindoo !
Tera Hindu Baap
Problem with dumb sardars like you is that you read fictitious Veda translations by mlechha colonials whom you served like sepoys. Prodigal sons who no are no longer part of Dharma but some quasi-Abrahamic cult in exile, fading away into bitter irrelevance. You couldn’t pronounce Sanskrit if your life depended on it, but you think walking around with an ornamental kirpan dangling near your buttocks makes you Kshatriyas of some sort. Hilarious.
That Chinese leader is definitely not Zhou Enlai. He is probably Chen Yi.
