What is Peace?

“Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul. Peace is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of mind. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people.”

Jawaharlal Nehru (1899 to 1964)

Also known as the “Pundit” or “Teacher”, Nehru was one of the principal leaders of India’s independence movement in the 1930s and ’40s.

He became the first prime minister of independent India (1947–64), established parliamentary government, and became noted for his neutralist (non-aligned) policies in foreign affairs.
