Jawaharlal Nehru was born in Allahabad on 14 November The Nehrus originally came from the valley of Kashmir and had migrated to Delhi at the beginning of the eighteenth century. Jawaharlal's grandfather, Gangadhar, was a police officer in Delhi at the time of the Revolt of When the victorious British troops stormed their way into Delhi, he escaped with his family to Agra.
Early inat the age of thirty-four, he passed away. Three months after his death, his wife gave birth to a son, who was named Motilal.
He was brought up by his elder brother, Nandlal.
Motilal Nehruthe father of Jawaharlal, forged his way to the forefront of the Allahabad Bar, where he built up an enormous practice; he was noted for his natural shrewdness, persuasive advocacy, and ready wit. Genial, fond of good food and good wine and good conversation, he was known among his friends—British and Indian—for his generous hospitality.
The Early Years As a child, Jawaharlal was the recipient of much anxious solicitude from his parents. His mother, Swarup Rani, showered on him, as he wrote later, "indiscriminate and excessive love. Though he was spared the straitjacket of a conventional education, solitary instruction at home deepened the loneliness of the boy, who as the only child for eleven years had little opportunity to play with children of his own age.
One of his tutors, Ferdinard T. Brooks, a young man of mixed Irish and French extraction, inspired in him a zest for reading and an interest in science. From English tutors to an English public school must have seemed to Motilal Nehru a natural, perhaps a necessary step.
In he took his son to England and had him admitted to Harrow public school. Jawaharlal entered the school routine of studies and sports, though he did not seem to leave any impression on his contemporaries, nor did they find his company intellectually stimulating.
Here boys older than me and in higher forms than me take great interest in things which appear to me childish.
His interest in science led him to take the Natural Science Tripos for his subjects. The three years he spent at Cambridge were, as he recalled later, "pleasant years with many friends.
Cambridge also imparted a keen edge to Jawaharlal's political thinking. His letters from Harrow and Cambridge exuded nationalist fervor and aggressive anti-imperialism, which alarmed his father, though it was not uncommon for Indian students at British universities to pass through a phase of intellectual rebellion and political extremism.
A Political Calling After graduating from Cambridge, Jawaharlal qualified as a barrister and returned to India in to practice at the Allahabad High Court as his father's junior. He was soon bored by what he called "the technicalities and trivialities of much of the legal lore.
It was politics that seemed to strike a vital chord in him, but politics in Allahabad were too tepid for him. It was only in Junewhen the arrest of Annie Besantthe leader of the Home Rule movement, created a political storm that he was drawn into the vortex of political agitation.
However, soon afterward, a declaration by the British government affirming the British policy of "developing self-governing institutions" in India brought down the political temperature.
The politics of Allahabad relapsed into their wonted torpor; the Nehrus fell back into domestic and professional grooves.
