Jawaharlal Nehru, the leader of India’s nationalist movement and the country’s first prime minister after independence.

Nehru joined the Indian National Congress in 1919 and subsequently joined Indian Nationalist leader Mahatma Gandhi’s independence movement. Nehru's four pillars of domestic policies were - democracy, socialism, unity, and secularism, and he largely succeeded in maintaining a strong foundation of all four during his tenure. Despite his reservations, Nehru acquiesced to Mountbatten and the Muslim League's plan to divide India.

His birthday, 14 November, is celebrated in India as Baal Divas or Children's Day in recognition of his lifelong passion and love to work on behalf of children and young people.
