The paper analyzes Nehru's philosophy, his performance as a revolutionary and as a government leader and his impact on the Indian state. The paper shows how he was well prepared to meet the challenges posed by the newly independent nation. The paper also discusses his missteps, such as the insistence on a centrally planned economy and strained relations with Pakistan, China and America, but concludes that Nehru helped to create a legacy of democracy and social reform that is apparent in India to this day.
