Teaser Tuesday (13-4)

A tease, a tease, a Tues-day tease....from Should Be Reading.

A well-worn story, perhaps apocryphal, has Churchill recalling the years Nehru spent in British prisons, saying, "You must hate us." To which Jawaharlal replied: "I was taught by a great man never to hate -- and never to fear."


p. 188, Nehru: Inventing India by Shashi Tharoor
