Bold Stand Of Pt. Nehru.

November 14(1889), is the birthday of Pandit Jawaharlal

Nehru, the first Prime Minister of independent India.

Birthday of ”Chacha”(children called him as uncle with

love) Nehru in India is celebrated as ”Children’s Day”.

Indian women can never forget his contribution towards

their betterment in a male dominated society. Nehru took

a bold stand and insisted on passing in 1952, the Hindu

Women Right to Property Act, notwithstanding the serious

objections raised by leaders like Rajendra Prasad and Sardar

Vallabhbhai Patel. Had Nehru wavered at the reaction

of the medieval religious slogans, the law would not have

come into force and the advancement of Indian women

would have suffered.
