Nehru, like some great poets, had also a “negativecapability”. On the occa­sion of the holy festival at Vishwa Bharati in April1936, Rabindra Nath Tagore referred to Jawaharlal as the “Rituraj”,representing the season of youth and triumphant joy. Subsequently, in a letterwritten to Nehru in May 1936, he spoke of Nehru’s Autobi­ography as a book through which “there runs a deepcurrent of humanity which over­passes the tangles of facts and leads us to theperson who is greater than his deeds and truer than his surroundings”.
