Modi and Nehru

This week Narendra Damodardas Modi became the 15th Prime Minister of India.
Ironically this week also marked the 50th death anniversary of Jawarharlal Nehru – the first prime minister of India. Modi defeated Nehru’s great-grandson and became the first Indian prime minister to have been born after Independence. That’s an important moment for India.
