The relevance of Pt. Jawaharlar Nehru's ideas in the international relations of today

Pandit Nehru is considered as the architect of India's foreign policy. His doctrine of 'Panchsheel' especially in the context of China and 'Non-aligned movement' in the context of US-Russian leadership paved the way for the future foreign policy and ethos of India's international relations.

Nehru presented an ideal foreign policy which consisted of both the rigidity and flexibility. Inspired by Nehru's vision, the Govt, of India remained normal during the US and Iraq war. Our goodwill and friendship with Russia are still following the Nehruvian way of dealing with bilateral and multilateral issues.

Today, we have entered the world of global socio­economic and political order which requires some new diamensions and change, especially in the context of USA. The disintegration of Russia has proved Nehruvian vision wrong. Nehru avoided mediation on Indo-Pak relation, but we cannot ignore the American pressure on both sides. Democratic and secular values of Nehru gained world-wide acclamation and at present, besides a few one, most of the nations of the world following the path of democratic and secular values.
