NMML’s plight

The attempt to re-vision the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) and the subsequent resignation of its director is nothing but a corollary in a war of attrition against the Congress, thus vitiating the values for which the storehouse of contemporary history stands (“Unwarranted pettiness,” Editorial, Sep.19). Jawaharlal Nehru’s ideas gives him a prominent place among the constellation of great Indian visionaries of modern era. As a young research scholar working in NMML in the 1980s I was greatly benefited by its scholarly ambience and voluminous literature available there, including private papers on nationalist leaders and political organisations.
