Nehru was born to an affluent Kashmiri Brahmin family in Allahabad on November 14, 1889. He was the son of Motilal Nehru, a prominent lawyer, and leader of the Indian Independence movement. One of his sisters, Vijay Lakshmi Pandit, later became the first woman president of the UN General Assembly.

My favourite story about my great-grandfather is the one about when as PM, he returned from work at 3 am to find his bodyguard exhausted and asleep on his bed. He covered him with a blanket and slept on an adjacent chair. #JawaharlalNehru pic.twitter.com/HDDiC1hked— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) November 14, 2019

Remembering Jawaharlal Nehru on his birthday , the first and the longest serving Prime Minister of India. He was an exemplary leader. He was imprisoned for four years during freedom struggle. He moved the crucial "Objectives Resolution" in the Constituent Assembly.#Jawaharlal pic.twitter.com/hpOzfEktv1— Divyam Kumar (@DivyamK42139754) November 13, 2019
