As some way ahead, he urged that they revisit My Experiments With Reality and Discovery of India, books through Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru, respectively.
The birthday party chief, who calls himself “hardcore Nehruvian”, additionally introduced hope, announcing one can at all times get started anew.
