Nehru formulated his ideas on Indian civilization in The Discovery of India. The civilizational unity of India is a major theme in this work. He tried to reconcile different approaches to India’s history and presented himself to be an exemplar of the reconciliation. Nehru acknowledged what India gained from the challenge of the West, and at the same time he recognized the exploitative face of the West in Asia.

Keywords:   Jawaharlal Nehru, The Discovery of India, civilizational unity, Indian independence
