This huge book was a birthday gift from my mom many years back, and all this time it lay in the back of some shelf, collecting dust and turning yellow because I simply could not gather enough interest to pick it up. He emphasized that Jesus is the son of God and that he died for people's sins. Most of these letters are written from District Jail, Dehradun. May show signs of minor shelf wear and contain limited notes and highlighting. It was incredible to know anyway, that this around 1000 page beast is simp I really debated with myself on whether to give this 5 stars.

In order to tell his daughter about all the wonderful things in the world and his many thoughts on people and the society, he wrote her diverse letters that initially spoke of how the earth was formed, how animal and human life came into existence and how societies entered the fray. He goes on to tell her that he would give her something he could afford, which was a series of letters, straight from his heart. He died in office, on 27 May 1964. As the Pax Romana fell apart Christians were crucified, burned, and killed in the arena. He was not the only one to denounce the rapacity and cruelty of British rule, and his assessment was not exaggerated. Over the next thirty months, Nehru wrote nearly two hundred letters in this series, which were later published as Glimpses of World History.

بل عن تاريخ العالم من حولها! It brings out his idealism, his love of knowledge, of freedom, of democracy and of lifting the masses out of misery. Let us, at least, give it a good push on—Inqilab zindabad! الكتاب يحمل كثير من الحقائق ومنها حقيقة غريبة عن الحجاب و انزواء النساء العربيات بتأثير القسطنطينية و بلادفارس ولم يكن الاختلاط محرماً على المرأة ولم تضع الحجاب على وجهها قبل حدوث الفتوحات. لتكون الاولى من مجموعة طويلة. With its panoramic sweep and its gripping narrative flow, all the more remark On New Year's Day, 1931, Jawaharlal Nehru began a remarkable series of letters on the history of the world to his daughter, Indira, then, thirteen years old. Although both the elderly and their children express a strong preference for independent residence, most old people live within a few hours of one of their children. Glimpses was a book, for me, six years in the waiting, and worth the waiting. We may ship from Asian regions for inventory purpose.

A very rare copy indeed. Ecohydrological features of the Holy Ganga river, microbial contamination of water resources, conservation of coastal and island areas and effect of acid rain have been nicely elucidated. They are forbidden to eat pork or drink intoxicating beverages and they have a holy book called the Qur'an, which is written in Arabic. الكتاب بدقة أكثر ينبغي أن يكون لمحات من تاريخ الثورات لاشتماله عليها في جزء كبير منها، وكما ذكرت قيمتها ليس في مادتها التاريخية بل أحيانا قد تعطيك تصورا خاطئا فمثلا تحدث عن ستالين في جانب ال قيمة هذا الكتاب ليس في مادته التاريخية بل في دروسه وعبره ومايمكن أن يستفاد منه لحاضرنا ومستقبلنا، وأجمل مافيه استعراضه لمجمل الثورات التي حدثت في تاريخ العالم من الثورة الفرنسية إلى الإمريكية ثم الروسية والإسبانية وغيرها وعندما نعرف وضع الهند آنذاك نتفهم هذه النزعة الثورية في هذا الكتاب ضد الظلم والاستبداد. One of my all time favourites! It was incredible to know anyway, that this around 1000 page beast is simply a collection of letters written by Jawaharlal Nehru to his daughter Indira, within a span of three years while he was in. This was my second book of Nehru and before this I have read his Discovery of India.

The letters were written to his young daughter , and were meant to introduce her to world history. Even so in our own country, we are today in the middle of a revolution. There is hardly a page of this enormous book that is dull. The unchecked pollution of the environment has made the life of mankind miserable on this planet.

Light foxing to a few pages. وتعمدت الابطاء ليبقى معى اياما اطول : One of my all time favourites! The last King Birjis Qadr and Queen Mother Begum Hazrat Mahal infused the spirit of patriotism and sacrifice of life for the motherland in every living person of Oudh. In 1930, a man who would later become the first prime minister of India was thrown in jail for a period of two years. Kindly provide day time phone number in order to ensure smooth delivery. But for a series of major blunders by Nehru across the spectrum-it would not be an exaggeration to say that he blundered comprehensively-India would have been on a rapidly ascending path to becoming a shining, prosperous, first-world country by the end of his term, and would surely have become so by early 1980s-provided, of course, Nehru's dynasty had not followed him to power.

Nehru manages to hold your entire attention as he narrates the history of almost everything. Over the next several decades, the East India Company, backed by the British government, extended its control over most of India, ruling with a combination of extortion, double-dealing, and outright corruption backed by violence and superior force. He is a pleasure to listen to, to spend time with, and this is an invaluable attribute for an author. All these years Nehru had been in Jail and he spent this time reading, and writing letters to his only daughter Indira, who was growing up to be the future Prime Minister of yet colonial India. كما اضطر لتجاوز فترات معينة من التاريخ, واعترف بكونه اقتبس الآراء والوقائع من كتب ورسائل متفرقة تحتمل وجود أخطاء عديدة, و ود لو أن مؤرخاً ضليعاً قام بمراجعة رسائله قبل نشرها. Transposing a Range of Cells; Ch. A Different View Unlike many other books that talk more or less about particular history of specific cultures, this book is a panoramic view of the history of mankind.

Territorial restrictions may be printed on the book. There is the virtue of novelty, then, but Nehru makes this all the more valuable by relentlessly chronicling areas' histories in connection with one another; they're not disjointed. The letters were written to his young daughter Indira, and were meant to introduce her to world history. Over the next thirty months, Nehru wrote nearly two hundred letters in this series, which were later published as Glimpses of World History. It was my first venture in world history in the form of a book and I did pause, pondered, cross checked and also took notes only to discover that he pushed himself to be as dispassionate as possible. With its panoramic sweep and its gripping narrative flow, all the more remarkable for being written in prison where Nehru had no recourse to reference books or a library, Glimpses of World History covers the rise and fall of empires and civilizations from Greece and Rome to China and West Asia; great figures such as Ashoka and Genghis Khan, Gandhi and Lenin; wars and revolutions, democracies and dictatorships. In his first letter, Nehru tells Indira about his sadness at being unable to send her any material gift from prison.

Eventually around 40,000 Jews came back to Jerusalem and the temple and walls were rebuilt. He wrote these letters with historical references without any reference, from his notes and memory. Today, Hindu followers can choose their own path to moksha- a state of perfect understanding.

Not many Indians are aware that interested parties to dethrone him, spread canards judiciously. It's a release from selfishness and pain and a break from the chain of reincarnations and rebirths.
