Disclosure of Reminiscences of Nehru Age by M. O. Mathai Part-1
M.O. Mathai in his book “Reminiscences of Nehru Age” made several eye-openers and unknown disclousers about Jawahar Lal Nehru and Mohandas Gandhi. Here are some for you in this Part 1.
Mathai about Gandhi
At Page 28, M.O. Mathai shows the advice of Mohandas Gandhi to raped women. Gandhiji’s advice to women faced with rape in the Punjab during partition was to bite their toungue and hold their breath until they died.
At same Page 28, Gandhi says that Hitler was not a bad man. Means he could be good even after manslaughtering and people only blames Netaji for going Germany. Whereas what Gandhiji said yielded nothing but Netaji’s visit to Germany yielded freedom of India in the end.
At Page 44 & 45, Mathai writes that celibacy experiments of Mahatma Gandhi was started with the duly permission of his wife Kasturba Gandhi. How could a woman give permission to his husband to sleep with young girls naked? If true then it’s surprisng. Mathai continued to write, “All the women in Gandhiji’s entrouge were involved in this. Gandhiji confided into Amrit Kaur that more than once, during the experiments, evil thoughts entered his mind. Most of Gandhiji’s principal colleagues privately protested, without success, against this practice. All of them finally, appealed to Nehru to persuade, Gandhiji to give it up. Nehru stoutly refused to interfere in such an intensely personal matter.”
Mathai about Dominion Status of India
Here is one more proof to establish that India achieved Dominion Status not complete freedom. At page 52, M. O. Mathai had written that “A conference of Dominion Prime Ministers took place in London between 22 October and 27 October 1948. British Prime Minister Clement Attlee presided. Until then it used to called the British Commonwealth Prime Ministers’ Conference. At this conference in October 1948, which was attended for the first time by the Prime Ministers of India, Pakistan and Ceylon, the word British just dropped out without any legal step being taken to effect the change. From then on it was just the Commonwealth Prime Ministers’ Conference. Also, many British non-official institutions dropped the word Empire which was substituted by Commonwealth.”
It clearly means that Britishers replaced the word Empire with Commonwealth. Both are synonymuous then. Don’t forget that India is still the part of Commonwealth.
Mathai about Nehru’s Irritation with President
At Page 71, M. O. Mathati had written, “Nehru was annoyed with Rajendra Prasad because he paid visit to Somnath to install the Shivalingam in the newly built temple on the site of the famous one which Moslem invaders destroyed.”
Nehru’s was an extension to British Government
There were people who alleges Netaji to be a Communist but appraises Jawahar Lal Nehru for following Russian ideology to govern India. Here is what Mathai said at Page 74, “In 1948, we were in London, Nehru requested Attlee to give me facilities to study the position of the Prime Minister in the Cabinet System and the constitution and functioning of his secretariat.”
Mathai had prepared the detailed note from Page 74 to 79 about his learning of Governance, which he and Nehru learnt together from the British Government’s system. There is no doubt that Government of India till date is following the same.
National Herald was not just related to Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, even Rafi Ahmad Kidwai was linked with it. At Page 89, Mathai written, “While the States Ministry was initiating action against Maharaja Pratap Singh of Baroda (he was eventually deposed), Rafi got in touch with him and extracted from him Rs. 200,000 for the National Herald. This was reported to Nehru by Sardar Patel. Nehru immediately wrote to Rafi asking him to return the money. Rafi replied that he had instructed Feroze Gandhi, Managing Director of Associated Journals Limited, to return the amount. Actually, Rafi did nothing of the kind. It was amusing that while Rafi was negotiating with Maharaja Pratap Singh, he had been telling Nehru that V.P. Menon had taken several hundred thousand rupees from the Maharaja as a bribe.”
A mention of the rarest found Revolutionary
At Page 127, we found a noting about Virendranath Chattopadhyay, the famous revolutionary of Bengal and real brother of Sarojini Naidu.
It was said that Virendranath Chattopadhyay went to Russia to gain support for Indian Independence but was killed on the order of Stalin after the 1947 independence. Stalin was not in his relation, but her real sister Sarojini Naidu under the influence of Mohandas Gandhi issued a statement against Virendra. It was said that this issue after Independence took the line of newly formed Government of India and Nehru, who after knowing all things that Virendra was on Russian soil they did nothing and left him to be killed by Stalin.
Angered with her issue, Sarojini’s father Aghornath Chattopadhaya refused to see her even again and did not allow her to meet him even at his death bed.
Relationship with Industrialist
Today, who are alleging Narendra Modi having relation with Adani and Ambani, should allege Nehru as well to have relation with Ghanshyam Das Birla, the biggest businessman of his age.
About Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit
At Page 134, Mathai had written about Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit, sister of Jawahar Lal Nehru. He said that she used to be a temperamental person and had the habit of cancelling appointments at the last moment.
Vijay Lakshmi Pandit used to take loan from different companies. From Page 135 to Page 140, M. O. Mathai had produced several proofs regarding the same. G.D. Birla and Government of India repaid these loans of Vijaya Lakshmi.
