Nehru started writing his fortnightly letters to his Chief Ministers from October 1947. This continued as a ritual until December 1963, a few months before his death. This book contains carefully selected letters, almost 400 of them, discussing a wide spectrum of subjects like war and peace, law and order, citizenship, national progress, corruption, planning and governance, and India's position in a global arena. These letters give a fair idea of a Prime Minister's perspectives about the times and people of a nation after Independence. They are reflective and visionary in their nature, echoing Nehru's statesmanship in their entirety.
