About

Remembered as a two-term President of the Indian National Congress, Nehru was a key figure in the Indian National Movement of the early Twentieth Century.

Before Fame

After studying at Muir Central College in Allahabad, India, he earned a law degree from the University of Cambridge.

Trivia

He was the chairman of the 1928 Nehru Commission. As such, he played a major role in drafting the Nehru Report, India's first non-British-penned constitution.

Family Life

His marriage to Swaroop Rani Thussu resulted in a son, Jawaharlal Nehru, who grew up to become a popular Indian political figure. Nehru and Thussu's two daughters, Vijayalakshmi Pandit and Krishna Hutheesing, also rose to prominence (as a diplomat and a writer, respectively).

Associated With

In the second decade of the 1900s, inspired by the nationalist activism of Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru began ridding his home of all British clothing and goods.
