A Picture on Nehru’s Wall

I just got back from a fantastic two weeks in India. Among the sites I visited was the Nehru Museum in New Delhi. Before India’s independence on 15 August 1947, the building was residence of British Commander in Chief India. Afterward, India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, took it over and lived there for the duration of his tenure. He died in the building in 1964, still in office.

Many rooms are still preserved as he left them. His library and decorations were most revealing, including his office, which I photographed here. Note the picture of Abraham Lincoln on the wall.

  1. Many charlatans would like to believe they are Lincolnesque or that their subjects view them in this light. Often the Great Emancipator Clones end up imposing an even more rigid autocracy upon the populace.
