Like History, many of the lessons we're supposed to learn from it are also repeated. Why? Because the past has never made much sense to your average befuddled citizen, and any amount of retelling only invents the tale in many new and contradictory ways, but we don't mind, as long as there's a good story in it for us.

And in his book, noted journalist and author Shashi Tharoor tells the story of one of India's most charismatic leaders. Nehru was born of a miracle and his life was no less remarkable. Tharoor examines all the factors that shaped Nehru's personality; his phoren education, obsession with the peasants of the country, and the occasionally volatile relationship with his father-figure, Gandhi.

Tharoor, who has won the Commonwealth Prize for Writers, will be reading from his book, Nehru: The Invention Of India, explaining his own personal fascination with the leader and his legacy, which still finds echoes, however faint, in today's India.

Be there for a slice of History that's immensely more palatable than all those coma-inducing lessons at school.

The event will be preceded by tea. For further details please contact ITC Kakatiya Sheraton at 2340-0132.
