DID MOUNTABTTEN IGNORED PROMISCOUS EDWINA’S AFFAIRS WITH NEHRU?

nehru_edwina.jpg

Pt Nehru’s youngest sister Krishna Nehru Hutheesing said that Pt Nehru was westerned cultured little dictator. She said, “It was Gandhi who once jokingly said, ‘When Jawahar talks in his sleep, he speaks in English.’ The CIA documents paint Nehru as a naïve and romantic statesman who trusted the Chinese which turned into Indo-China War . Photo of Lady Mountbetton and Nehru lighting cigarettes of each other tells the truth.
 
Pt Nehru vs Netaji Subhash
In my school life I saw a poster hanging on the wall of my class with a quote of Netaji Subhas Bose: “Instead of cigarette, I want to see pistol in the hands of the students” There are contiuious arguments that Nehru has some involvement in the death of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. If Netaji was alive Nehru couldn’t be Prime minister of India.
When Jawahar talks in his sleep, he speaks in English: Mahatma Gandhi
“How un-Indian the greatest Indian leader and first Prime Minister is,” reflects his sister, telling of his upbringing amid a wealthy family that sent to England for its clothes (Nehru wore European suits until his micros); of Nehru’s longstanding passion for chocolate cake, pies and ice-cream sundaes; and of his continuing preference for English friends (like Lord and Lady Mountbatten). “It was Gandhi who once jokingly said, ‘When Jawahar talks in his sleep, he speaks in English.’
Rahul Gandhi wears ‘kurta pajama’ in the day time but in the night he goes to sleep with modern night dress.
Edwina Mountbatten affairs with Pt Nehru
Lady Mountbatten reportedly had affairs with Indian prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru and American actor-singer Paul Robeson. A lot of attention is paid passim to Nehru’s affair with Edwina Mount- batten, resulting in the fact that ” Nehru’s daughter Indira hated her A nd both Mountbatten daughters have candidly acknowledged that their mother had a fiery temperament and was not always supportive of her husband when jealousy of his high profile overbore a sense of their having common cause. Mountbatten himself carried on affairs with lovers of both sexes and that he was widely known in the military as “Mountbottom.
“While her husband, appointed the last viceroy of India , hammered out the terms of India ’s independence and partition, she experienced a passionate union of souls with Nehru, the great unfulfilled love of her life. Morgan ( Agatha Christie ) had unique access to the hundreds of letters Edwina and Nehru wrote to each other until her death in 1960.” Written in the book ‘ Edwina Mountbatten: A Life of Her Own’
Congress wants to bow on the feet of their president instead of bow and kiss the motherland Bharatmata. Both Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi were underground on the occasion of ‘Vandemataram day.
“Laughing low and sweet
Mother, I kiss thy feet,
Speaker sweet and low!

Nehru’s romance with Kashmir
As the media report of Feb 11, 2007 a special and rare exhibition photos’ Pt Nehru was held on in the Jammu University ’s campus. The exhibit is titled ‘Nehru in Kashmir’ and is based on the works of Veteran photographer Sati SahniThere is also a rare photo of Pt Nehru with his friend Lady Edwina Mountbatten in March 1949, at Chashmashahi Guest House as he is explaining the breathtaking beauty of Dal Lake from a vantage position.
Nehru: A Tryst with Destiny”
I recall a review of the book “Nehru: A Tryst with Destiny”of Stanley Wolpert which said:details Nehru’s personal life, including the early death of his wife and his long affair with Edwina Mountbatten, the wife of the last British viceroy of India . There are the love letters between Nehru and Lady Edwina Mountbatten, and other private papers “still locked away by foolish heirs and self-appointed guardians.” Still, he convincingly goes beneath Nehru’s exalted image to reveal some pesky demons.
Mahatma Gandhi was not an active participant in the Partition
Mahatma Gandhi was not an active participant in the partition of India according to the “Lord Mountbatten: The Last Viceroy” (1986) (mini)TV-Series. Pt Nehru and Jinnah were the main architect of dividing the India on the basis of ‘Two nation Theory’ which was been buried by Indira Gandhi with the independese of Bangladesh and now we can see the fight between Siitis (Shia) and Sunnia in Iraq and other laces.
CIA on Romantic Pt Nehru
CIA documents on the India-China border dispute that were declassified on June 28, 2007 offer insights on how the US intelligence agency viewed the former Soviet Union and China in the darkest days of the Cold War.
Caesar-Polo-Esau papers
One set of documents called the Caesar-Polo-Esau papers deal extensively with the communist regimes in the former Soviet Union and China , and the American reading of their policies. Suicidal slogna of “Hindi Chini bhai bhai” is still going on by the unholu alliance of Communists and Congress.
In the three chapters dealing with the India-China border spat, CIA analysts suggest that Beijing and its then premier Zhou en Lai (the old spellings Peiping and Chou are used in the paper) consistently fooled Nehru and India through procrastination and dissembling.
The CIA documents paint Nehru as a naïve and romantic statesman who trusted the Chinese. They claim the Indian leader kept disagreements on the border issue out of the public domain to maintain his relationship with Chou.
Here it is noteable that Nehru also remarked on Americans like that. Nehru still “admires Britain more than any other nation,” Mrs. Hutheesing reports, and respects and admires some Americans. But Nehru thinks Americans are generally “a very rich, childish and naive people, still in their infancy so far as diplomacy go.”
The Chinese plan to dupe Nehru had actually been in operation right through the 1950s, the CIA says. ‘In New Delhi in November-December 1956, Chou sought to create the impression with Nehru that Beijing would accept the McMahon line, but again his language was equivocal, and what he conceded with his left hand, he retrieved with his right.’
Such was Nehru’s trust of China and Zhou (Chau), the CIA says, that he dismissed a letter from then Burmese premier Ba Swe, warning him to be cautious in dealing with Zhou. Nehru declared Zhou to be an honourable man.
 
Not Casear but little dictator Nehru
Anonymous Confession: Mrs. Hutheesing quotes revealingly from an article Nehru wrote anonymously about himself in 1937. Disguising himself in the third person, Nehru wrote: “… Jawahar, with all their capacity for great and good work, are unsafe in a democracy.
He calls himself a democrat and a socialist and no doubt he does so in all earnestness, but every psychologist knows that the mind is, ultimately, slave to the heart . . . A little twist and Nehru might turn dictator, sweeping aside the paraphernalia of a slow-moving democracy . . . Jawahar has all the makings of a dictator in him—vast popularity, a strong will, ability, hardness, an intolerance of others and a certain contempt for the weak and the inefficient . . . In this revolutionary epoch, Caesarism is always at the door. Is it not possible that Jawahar might fancy himself as a Caesar?”
Mrs Hutheesing is convinced that power “has not corrupted Jawahar,” but “has had the effect of perhaps coarsening him to some extent. He was always inclined to be a little dictatorial . . . but nowadays he brooks no criticism and will not even suffer advice gladly. He is highly conscious of his place in history . . . Jawahar is ambitious for India . Whether his one-man control . . . has made him a benevolent despot is a matter of opinion.” Nehru’s sister concludes: “In the eyes of the world, he is undoubtedly the only man in India who can guide and control her destiny in these difficult times. Nevertheless, there is danger for him and for India if he is spoiled too much with adulation. In his own words, ‘It must be checked. We want no Caesars!’ “
Why we are going to give remote control Premiership and Rastrapati Bhawan in the hands of foreigh hands. Why we want to be slave again? Why we should not learn from our own history
Rajini Patil widow of a Congress leader alleged that Pratibha Patil’s brother is involed in the murder of her husband. This is the way of Congress to tribute the womanhood. There is a regular scanning of ghosts in news channels. Pratiha said in Mount Abu that she talked ghost. It is said that still ghost of Ghost of Lincoln in White House of Washington. If ghost of V G Patil runs to be a shadow of Pratibha than we also find a ghost in Rashtrapati Bhawan as White House. This will be a huge matter for TV serials and making movies.
We wish, President means Rashtrapati should be Ram Bhakt to save Ram Sethu Adam’s bridge.

You or someone you know is having an affair. We know, it sounds surprising, shocking even, but apparently that is the case. Cookie Magazine and “AOL Body” did a survey on the subject and 30,000 people responded. As far as surveys go, that is a big number, and it’s even bigger when you consider that their questions were aimed solely at married women with children. Yep, lots of mommies are getting action on the side.

POLITICAL FARCE BROKEN PROMISES AND FAKE DOCUMENTS:
NORTHERN AREAS WERE INDEPENDENT AND NEVER PART OF KASHMIR.The world will never forget the words of Nehru which is never adhered to. The world will never forget the fake Kashmiri Article of Accession that was never presented to Pakistan or the UN.
The world will never forget Nehru’s illegal take over of Hydrabad.
The survey, “Sex and the American Mom,” revealed that 34% of these married moms is in the midst of, or has already had, an affair. Think of three married moms you know and ask yourself, “Which one is cheating?” We tried this and Colleen came up empty. Taylor could think of one or two, but not one out of three–that number seems staggering. Are we just naïve? In the dark? Out of touch? Which of our friends has managed to stray without anyone knowing (and when do they find the time and where they hell do they go?)?
Another somewhat mind-blowing result of this survey was that 77% of the respondents said they want more sex. That’s more than three quarters of the 30,000 women asked who said they aren’t getting enough. Again, we ask, who are these people? And are we to conclude that so many stray because they are not sexually satisfied?

Cheating seems to be a direct result of not getting what you need, be it sex, attention, openness, what have you. If there is a void, and it can be filled by someone else, chances are it will be. Affairs used to almost guarantee a trip to divorce court. Today, however, the “cheatee” might experience a sense of betrayal, but the “cheater” is not necessarily stigmatized socially, and often both agree to at least attempt reconciliation. It has even been viewed as a “wake-up call” — one that can actually save a marriage, with each person expressing a sense of shared blame.
As a society, it seems as though we’ve become less judgmental about affairs in general. Maybe we’ve realized how hard marriage is and have simply gotten more realistic. But, maybe the scope of the issue is bigger, and what’s happening is that we’re in the midst of redefining marriage as we have known it.
The stereotype, of course, is if there’s someone sneaking around in a marriage, it’s the guy. In general, no one is surprised to hear that men cheat on their wives. However, when it comes to wives cheating on their husbands, while not entirely new, it is much more common than we thought. When we told men that one in three married moms cheat (or have cheated) on their husbands, and that a solid majority are actually looking for more sex than they’re having at home, most mens’ eyes light up with surprise and certainly curiosity. Some even joked about where they might find one of these gals. But, what we didn’t hear was “Yes, I can understand that. I’m not in the mood very often and I’m probably not satisfying my wife’s sexual desires.”
Could the American male be suffering from a proverbial “headache?” Maybe the insatiable male sex drive is just a myth? After hearing what Michelle Weiner-Davis, an internationally recognized relationship therapist and the Director of The Divorce Busting Center, had to say in an interview with Psychology Today, this may not be far-fetched. She thinks we don’t hear a lot about the man’s lack of sexual interest because, “Men are so ashamed of speaking up about [it].” Estimating that it affects, “at least 20 to 25%” of adult males,” Michelle adds, “…low desire in men is America’s best-kept secret.”
Please don’t confuse our effort to understand what’s going on here with male-bashing. When a couple’s sex life changes, for better or worse, generally both parties are complicit. For the record, we love men and we’re aware that sex is complicated. Let’s face it, marriage is complicated, and it only becomes more so after having kids. If mom or dad feels rejected by the other, he or she may cheat. And if you’re married and you’ve got kids, you know that sex, or lack there of, can be loaded with a lot of other emotions and agendas that don’t have anything to do with lust, or even love.
As the Hook-Up Generation grows up and gets married, chances are affairs may even go mainstream. It’s hard for us to believe that this won’t lead to hurt feelings and collateral damage (remember the kids), but maybe that’s because we’re from a different generation.
We understand that the person who lies just outside of the daily grind–the one who’s not figuring out how to pay the mortgage that month; the one who isn’t angry about spending too little time with the kids–can seem like a vacation worth taking–at least once.
We’re glad to hear that women want more sex, because frankly, it’s good news that the female libido is alive and well. As for the affairs….If we could add one question to the poll it would be this: “Is/Was the Affair Worth It
orignally written in 1994 is being throughly reformatted and rewritten. This is a Research in process (RIP). reformatted March 2nd 2007. Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru has been acclaimed as a great Indian. The economist of August 1997 did a wonderful job of describing his strengths and weaknesses.
His greatest accomplishment is uniting India and giving her a sense of nationhood. The Nehru dynasty did this well. They used ALL MEANS NECESSARY to achieve the goal, but the Indian nation was forged in the furnace and forged in blood.
Like Mohandas Gandhi, Nehru’s legacy is tarnished by charges of lecherous and lascivious behaviour. Of course the charges against Gandhi totally destroyed his creadabilty in the Subcontinent. Mohandas Gandhi failed leadership in politics and Gandhis domestic violence and weird sexual perversion. Source: Two Gandhi grandsons. Mohandas- a true story of a man, his people and an empire, on Mahatma Gandhi” by former Parliamentarian and writer Mr. Rajmohan
Nehru’s support of socialism and Nehrus destruction of a free market economy in India will indeed be the subject of continued controversy. The personal character of Mr. Nehru is also under considerable scrutiny. In many ways Mr. Nehru’s personal character was the character of a playboy.
His marriage vows were never adhered to and he indeed played the field, with Mrs Mountbatten and with others.
The question of Mr. Jawaharlal’s homosexuality created a storm in India. Stanley Wolpert was at the center of the storm. No sooner had Indian newspapers published excerpts from Stanley Wolpert’s book Tryst with Destiny, that Wolpert came under INTENSE attack for exposing the homosexuality of Nehru . The attacks got so wild that a Khomeni type of situation almost came about. The strength of the Indian democracy was tested and it quashed the violent elements who were asking for Wolperts head. Nehru : A Tryst With Destiny by Stanley Wolpert
Sex life of Jawahar Lal Nehru: Tryst with homosexuality and Manege de trois! Nehru, Edwina & Lord Mountbatten changed Subcontinental history
Nehru and Edwina Mountbatten
Stanley Wolpert in his book clearly states that his book is not the only one that has discussed the subject of Nehru’s homosexuality. There are a lot of books that he lists in his bibliography.
Stanley Wolpert is a great author. His research methods are above reproach. He had access to a lot of information, but he was not allowed to use a lot of the information on Nehru…hence he could use only public records. In the preface he complains about this. He read the information but was NOT allowed to use it. In the book he used only publicly available information.
There are stories on Page 25. Wolpert has come across some solid evidence but was not given permission to print it. He then grasped at straws to lead the reader to believe what he has information on.
He also describes instances when Nehru dressed in drag “Wearing his wig, made up with lipstick, powder and eye shadow, his body draped in silks and satins, Jawahar most willingly offered himself up night after night to those endless rehearsals for the Gaekwar’s At Home as a beautiful young girl, holding out her jug of wine and loaf seductively to her poet lover, Omar,” he writes in one passage.
In the book, Wolpert says Nehru’s first attachment was with a young man called Ferdinand Brooks who was his French teacher. Brooks was a theosophist but Wolpert says before coming to India the “handsome’ man was a disciple and lover of Charles Webster Leadbeater, a renegade Anglican curate who was accused of child molestation and pederasty on several continents. Leadbeater openly advocated mutual masturbation among young boys.
Wolpert also suggests Nehru may have had a gay relationship in Harrow and makes much of Panditji’s admiration for Oscar Wilde. http://www.hvk.org/hvk/articles/0297/0047.html
The controversy is over material on pages 8-9 and page 12 last paragraph 4th. sentence, page 14 third paragraph, and then most explicitly pp. 23 -25 of Wolpert’s book. The jacket of the book also clearly refers to Nehru’s homosexuality.
The fact that Nehru had a relationship with his tutor who was a disciple of a well-known pederast (pp. 8-9) is evidence of Nehru’s own homosexual interests. The pederast and Jawahar’s love interest, not only espoused homosexuality and sex with boys but was summarily dismissed by Nehrus father despite the protestations of the young Nehru.
The material (story of Nehru and his Englishman who went for a swim naked in the hot weather) on the later pages esp. pp. 23-25 is based on actual and more detailed personal Nehru documents that Wolpert had access to. Wolpert could NOT use actual Nehru letters to describe the incident in detail. Permission to publish letters and information was first given to Wolpert and then permission to use the material was DENIED.
Stanley Wolperts letter to the Statement is piece of literature. There is a large body of evidence on Nehrus homosexuality. The bibliography in Wolperts book is now a list of other books that also list incidents.
“About Nehru, I think he is one of the titans of modern history along with the likes of Gandhi, Azad, Badshah Khan, Gokhale and Tilak. He was a red blooded human being with all the concomitant frailities and passions. He spent his formative years at Harrow (an English Public (Prep) School) and Trinity College, Cambridge during the early years of this century. Homosexuality was then quite prevalent in upper class England and in fact was generally known in Europe as an English disease(sic).
Did he have a homosexual encounter with his teachers? possibly. If he had one, in today’s parlance, it would be considered sexual molestation or rape: As he, presumably a minor was presumably attacked by an adult. Was he an homosexual? the evidence does not point in that direction. His sexual exploits with the other sex are legion. Whatever his sexual predilections, his accomplishments vis a vis the country he loved are without rational question.”
The Nehrus have been great for India. They took more than 570 states and forged a country. Stalin and Mao had to murder millions to accomplish the same. Nehru had a great vision for India. The Mao, Nehru, Nasir, Sukarno combo would have created a new power block and changed the course of the cold war. His daughter could never see that far, and his grandson couldn’t see beyond Italy.
His beliefs in Socialism has not only kept India behind the rest of Asia it has kept the Subcontinent in the throws of penury. His bias in Kashmir led to several wars between our respective countries. His sexual promiscuity set a bad example in interfered with the running of the state.
Here are some of Rajib Dogars comments:
“To the extent that I think one cannot truly separate the private from the public in the sense that the same person acts in both domains, I cannot agree. Nehru’s personal likes and dislikes very much affected his
relations with Gandhi, with Patel and even with his own father and thus his strategy. This much is very clear. Nehru’s rather cold and boorish behavior, by today’s standards anyway, toward his wife do raise the
question about his mental set and his attitude towards sex and towards women.
His relationships with other women also raise questions about how his policies may have been affected by his relationships-recall that Nehru liked his women to be somewhat intellectual. So to the extent that his personal reactions to people affect his policy making, these are relevant questions, both for history and for biography.”
The line I would draw is between the public and private life of a historical figure. To the extent that the private life affects the public policy, I would admit it. (Frankly, many of the examples you cite above are not exactly “private.”) If the private life is brought into discussion, I would like to see justification for why it is being brought in.
That is not my impression. But I cannot also fault people who construe it that way, like the editors of Pioneer. Mind you, all that they did was to publish extracts from Wolpert’s book. If there was nothing unreasonable about the extracts, there should have been no need for Wolpert to respond..)
Why is homosexuality is such a big deal? For me, it is not. But, we are talking about the leader of a country for many of whose people homosexuality is outside the realm of experience. One doesn’t need to be a genius to figure out that they are going to be thoroughly scandalized.
Nehru : A Tryst With Destiny
Those two tyrants soon merged in his mind, for loyalist Congress moderates–Gokhale’s liberal Anglophile wing of gentlemen like Motilal–Page 72:
In India, the elections to the provincial councils as well as the Central Assembly were held in 1926, and Motilal was forced to bear alone the full burden of the Swaraj campaign, for his dear friend and president of the party, C.R. Das had died…I hardly had any workers worth the name to help me in my province.”
Not only had Jawaharlal deserted him, but former friends and old allies, Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya and Lal Lajpat Rai, both ex-Congress Presidents, founded their own Nationalist Party that year, a Hindu first communal party, which won many seats in the United Provinces…..
THE MALAVIYA FACTOR & THE LAST ENGLISHMAN WHO RULED INDIA: Malaviya was president of the Hindu Mahasaba, a conserative communal society that focused on saving cows and slaughter Muslims while trying to force the conversions of Muslims to Hinduism, arguing that most of India’s Muslim population had originally been Hindus but had forcibly been converted to Islam during some five hundred years of Muslim rule.
One of the most militant popular Hindu communal leaders of that “reconversion” (shudhi) movement, Swami Shraddhanand, was assassinated in Delhi that December by a Muslim extremist. The swami, like Lala Lajpat Rai, belonged to another fundamentalist Hindu society, the Arya Samaj, which advocated turning back India’s history more than three thousand years to an ancient Aryan tribal polity, reflected in Vedic scripture, when Brahmans and cows were treated as gods on earth.
FRESH claims that Jawaharlal Nehru, one of India’s 20th-century gods, had homosexual relations have provoked a furious row in the country’s newspapers. A new biography suggests that India’s founding father, and first prime minister, had a number of homosexual encounters during his English school days in Harrow, and later at Cambridge. And there is a description of the great man in drag at a London soiree.
The allegations occupy only three pages of the 500-page (Nehru: A tryst with Destiny by American historian Stanley Wolpert), but they have already taken on the proportions of a scandal. The Pioneer, an English language daily, described the claims as “sacrilege” and “blasphemous” and demanded government action. Prof Wolpert said the newspaper “obviously considers Nehru a god” and asked if India was not yet ready to discuss the lives of its leaders, warts and all. Obviously not.
The correspondence between Edwina Mountbatten and Nehru, whom she called her “beloved Jawaha”, remains sealed by agreement between the estates of both families. But the central questions that provoked the row over the book – did Nehru have a homosexual side and did he have an affair or merely a platonic romance with the last Vicereine of India? – have been ignored in the furore over Nehru’s divinity.
India loves its deities. Not content with several hundred gods and goddesses, it is constantly creating new ones and there is little doubt that Nehru is regarded with reverence bordering on worship. There is not a government office – or even many homes – without a picture of him gazing nobly from the walls.
“We love a lavish pantheon, a multiplicity of gods and goddesses. It has to do with ancestor worship,” said Swapan Dasgupta, a newspaper editor.
Curiously, Nehru considered himself “the last Englishman” to rule India. He was a patrician anglophile, given to quoting Greek myths to bemused Congress party workers and singing old Harrovian songs. His home, Teen Murti House in Lutyens’s Delhi, now a museum, is a celebration of Englishness: a Thirties colonial oasis of neatly tended lawns, country house flowerbeds and peacocks. Prof Wolpert describes young Nehru’s “passionate love affair” with an Englishman and his “attachment” to his tutor, Ferdinand Brooks, a disciple and lover of an Anglican curate, Charles Leadbeater, who advocated mutual masturbation.
Nehru’s penchant for make-up and drag is also noted. One reviewer claims that the revelations will cause “anger and distraction” among Nehru’s admirers.
A previous book by Prof Wolpert, “Nine Hours to Rama“, an account of Gandhi’s assassination, was banned in India.
If his Nehru survives, it is sure to sell out – even if it does not secure its subject’s place on India’s altars.
Another interesting twist to this saga is the homosexuality of Lord Mountbatten.
HOW THE GAY LIFE KILLED MOUNTBATTEN: Encounters with youths exposed him to IRA. BY FRANK DOHERTY. First published in ‘NOW’ magazine , Volume 1 , No. 4 , October 1989 , page 37 .
‘Lord’ Mountbatten was particularly attracted to boys in their early teens ; it was this characteristic which made him especially vulnerable to the IRA , because he needed to slip away from his personal bodyguards to keep dates with such boys , some of whom came in contact with IRA men .
His vice habit was similar to that of the former British Secret Service Chief , ‘Sir’ Maurice Oldfield , who was appointed ‘ Ulster (sic) Security Co-Ordinator ‘ by Margaret Thatcher in the wake of the Mountbatten assassination .
‘Sir’ Maurice also slipped away from his ‘personal protection detail’ – a team of handpicked , plain-clothes British ‘Royal’ Military Policemen – on various occasions while he was living in Stormont House , beside Stormont Castle in Belfast . But a plan by the IRA to kill him during one such expedition into County Down failed when he was unexpectedly moved back to London .
[END of ‘ HOW THE GAY LIFE KILLED MOUNTBATTEN ‘ ]. (Monday 7th – ‘ A STICKY END ; THE OFFICIALS ‘ , from 1981 ).
STANLEY WOLPERT ON NEHRU:
Wolpert’s suggestion of Nuhru’s homosexuality and Mountabetten’s own alleged homosexuality adds a new dimension to the relationship (wolpert 1996). Clearly Mountbatten and Nehur was fascinated with one another; both were upperclass public schoolboys and there is little doubt that they had amused each other in 1947
What did the three people see in each other? How did the menega de trois come about? What does each realtionship tell us about the lover and the loved one? Three different sets of answers need to be constructed. Let us start with Lady Mountbetten who adored and who was adored by Nehru at first sight. In the words of former Labor MP, she became bewitched by Nehru (Roberts 1994a: 182)
Jinnah REBUFFED MOUNTBATTEN OVERTURES:
…for this cozy traingle Jinnah was the outside…”with his legendary charm and verve Mountbatten turned the focus of Operation Seduction on the Moslem leader. Jinnah froze
Nehru died of Tertiary Syphilis-Aortic Aneurysm
Nehru’s affair with Edwina Mountbatten has been well documented. With Lord Mountbatten being gay, was Nehru being screwed from all sides? This had a great impact on the boundary commission and the creation of Pakistan.
The Nehrus have been great for India. They took more than 570 states and forged a country. Stalin and Mao had to murder millions to accomplish the same. Nehru had a great vision for India. The Mao, Nehru, Nasir, Sukarno combo would have created a new power block and changed the course of the cold war. His daughter could never see that far, and his grandson couldn’t see beyond Italy.

And there is a description of the great man in drag at a London soiree.
The allegations occupy only three pages of the 500-page (Nehru: A tryst with Destiny by American historian Stanley Wolpert), but they have already taken on the proportions of a scandal. The Pioneer, an English language daily, described the claims as “sacrilege” and “blasphemous” and demanded government action. Prof Wolpert said the newspaper “obviously considers Nehru a god” and asked if India was not yet ready to discuss the lives of its leaders, warts and all. Obviously not.
The correspondence between Edwina Mountbatten and Nehru, whom she called her “beloved Jawaha”, remains sealed by agreement between the estates of both families. But the central questions that provoked the row over the book – did Nehru have a homosexual side and did he have an affair or merely a platonic romance with the last Vicereine of India? – have been ignored in the furore over Nehru’s divinity.
India loves its deities. Not content with several hundred gods and goddesses, it is constantly creating new ones and there is little doubt that Nehru is regarded with reverence bordering on worship. There is not a government office – or even many homes – without a picture of him gazing nobly from the walls.
“We love a lavish pantheon, a multiplicity of gods and goddesses. It has to do with ancestor worship,” said Swapan Dasgupta, a newspaper editor.
Curiously, Nehru considered himself “the last Englishman” to rule India. He was a patrician anglophile, given to quoting Greek myths to bemused Congress party workers and singing old Harrovian songs. His home,
Teen Murti House in Lutyens’s Delhi, now a museum, is a celebration of Englishness: a Thirties colonial oasis of neatly tended lawns, country house flowerbeds and peacocks. Prof Wolpert describes young Nehru’s “passionate love affair” with an Englishman and his “attachment” to his tutor, Ferdinand Brooks, a disciple and lover of an Anglican curate, Charles Leadbeater, who advocated mutual masturbation.
Nehru’s penchant for make-up and drag is also noted. One reviewer claims that the revelations will cause “anger and distraction” among Nehru’s admirers.
A previous book by Prof Wolpert, “Nine Hours to Rama“, an account of Gandhi’s assassination, was banned in India.
If his Nehru survives, it is sure to sell out – even if it does not secure its subject’s place on India’s altars.
Another interesting twist to this saga is the homosexuality of Lord Mountbatten.
HOW THE GAY LIFE KILLED MOUNTBATTEN: Encounters with youths exposed him to IRA. BY FRANK DOHERTY. First published in ‘NOW’ magazine , Volume 1 , No. 4 , October 1989 , page 37 .
‘Lord’ Mountbatten was particularly attracted to boys in their early teens ; it was this characteristic which made him especially vulnerable to the IRA , because he needed to slip away from his personal bodyguards to keep dates with such boys , some of whom came in contact with IRA men .
His vice habit was similar to that of the former British Secret Service Chief , ‘Sir’ Maurice Oldfield , who was appointed ‘ Ulster (sic) Security Co-Ordinator ‘ by Margaret Thatcher in the wake of the Mountbatten assassination .
‘Sir’ Maurice also slipped away from his ‘personal protection detail’ – a team of handpicked , plain-clothes British ‘Royal’ Military Policemen – on various occasions while he was living in Stormont House , beside Stormont Castle in Belfast . But a plan by the IRA to kill him during one such expedition into County Down failed when he was unexpectedly moved back to London .

STANLEY WOLPERT ON NEHRU:
Wolpert’s suggestion of Nuhru’s homosexuality and Mountabetten’s own alleged homosexuality adds a new dimension to the relationship (wolpert 1996). Clearly Mountbatten and Nehur was fascinated with one another; both were upperclass public schoolboys and there is little doubt that they had amused each other in 1947
What did the three people see in each other? How did the menega de trois come about? What does each realtionship tell us about the lover and the loved one? Three different sets of answers need to be constructed. Let us start with Lady Mountbetten who adored and who was adored by Nehru at first sight. In the words of former Labor MP, she became bewitched by Nehru (Roberts 1994a: 182)
Jinnah REBUFFED MOUNTBATTEN OVERTURES:
…for this cozy traingle Jinnah was the outside…”with his legendary charm and verve Mountbatten turned the focus of Operation Seduction on the Moslem leader. Jinnah froze
Nehru died of Tertiary Syphilis-Aortic Aneurysm
Nehru’s affair with Edwina Mountbatten has been well documented. With Lord Mountbatten being gay, was Nehru being screwed from all sides? This had a great impact on the boundary commission and the creation of Pakistan.
