Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru Very RARE Film

This is a rare documentary produced in 1957 of Jawaharlal Nehru. He was the first Prime Minister of India  and a supporter of the Non-Aligned Movement. The film shows his activities and duties as Prime Minister. Nehru had gained much respect internationally as a promoter of peace in global conflicts. This film is more of an honorary tribute, avoiding the flaws of Nehru’s foreign  policy. The question and conflict over Kashmir is not mentioned or the rising tensions with China. Nehru makes a strong argument for peaceful resolutions. The problem he explains is that Common Wealth nations are preparing for war rather than promoting harmony among nations. The film shows Nehru meeting with Zhou En-lai , John Foster Dulles,  Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, Tito, and Norodom Sihanouk. These were foreign ministers, world leaders, and people of prominence. Nehru has global influence. The reason he commanded such respect and admiration was that he was a part of the independence struggle and wanted to see the rest of the Third World free as well.
