Correct Answer - Option 4 : Jawaharlal Nehru

The Correct Answer is Jawaharlal Nehru.

  • Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first Prime Minister, wrote The Discovery of India while imprisoned by colonial authorities at Ahmednagar fort in the present-day Indian state of Maharashtra from 1942 to 1945, prior to India's independence.
  • While the book was written in 1944, it was published in 1946. Some of the book's material is credited to Nehru's fellow inmates at the Ahmednagar jail.
  • Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, Govind Ballabh Pant, Narendra Deva, and Asaf Ali are among those he mentions specifically.
  • Bharat Ek Khoj (1988), a 53-episode Indian television series directed by Shyam Benegal and first broadcast in 1988 on the state-run Doordarshan channel, was based on the novel.

  • Jawaharlal Nehru was an Indian independence leader and, later, the country's first Prime Minister, as well as a key figure in Indian politics both before and after independence.
  • He rose to prominence as an eminent leader of the Indian independence movement, serving as Prime Minister of India from its independence in 1947 until his death in 1964.
  • The Congress became a catch-all party under Nehru's leadership, dominating national and state politics and winning three consecutive elections in 1951, 1957, and 1962.
  • Despite political difficulties and leadership failures in his final years, he remained influential with the Indian people.
  • Despite political difficulties in his later years and a leadership failure during the 1962 Sino-Indian War, he remained popular with the Indian people. Children's Day is observed on his birthday in India.
