Letters from a Father to His Daughter

This is a very popular book by our first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. These letters were written in 1982.This book is a collection of letters that he sends to his daughter in Mussoorie, from Allahabad over the summer. The book is published by Penguin Books and it has a very attractive cover illustration by Ajanta Guhathakurta.  The book consists of 154 pages and costs Rs. 275.
These letters narrate stories of how and when the earth was made, about life and how it began, and how civilizations and societies evolved all over the world! In this book Nehru tells us to read and understand the ‘Book of Nature’. It inspires us to explore new horizons, seek adventure in even a tiny bit of pebble! Observe the little things that together make the Book of Nature and learn from them. Indeed, their stories are much more enchanting than fairy tales!!
In my opinion every girl or boy should read this book. It’ll help to understand a broader meaning of history. Not just by hearting the dates and events before a test and erasing everything after use! But instead, exploring and understanding it by ourselves! I think history would’ve been much more interesting if it was taught in this way!!!!
