"We imagine we are so important and little things annoy us and worry us. But what are these little happenings in the long history of the world? It does us good to read and learn something of these vast periods of history because we will not then worry about little things much." - JawarharlalNehru , Letters From A Father To His Daughter
◆ Genre: non-fiction/letters
◆ 154 pages and first published in 1930.
◆ Former Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru wrote a series of letters in the summer of 1928 to his daughter Indira Gandhi who was in Mussoorie at that time.
◆ The letters were written she was eleven years old so the writing is very simple.
◆ I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The letters deal with the history of the world, how it came to being, how civilizations evolved and such topics.
◆ If you have always been interested in reading about the historical aspects of the world and have no clue where to start, I'd recommend this book. Nehruji had explained everything in the simplest of the words since it was actually meant for a kid.
◆ It's an educational book so everyone should give it a try and read it.110% recommended to kids.
