dated May 10, 1956: Russell hails India's policy

Bertrand Russell, the eminent philosopher, has expressed the view that "India is doing a very useful job by maintaining a neutral stand and not aligning herself with any side" in the international situation. In an interview, he said he thought it was best for India "to be neutral". Asked whether he thought Mr. Nehru's policy was contributing to the lessening of world tension, he replied, "Yes, I do." What does he approve of most in India? Bertrand Russell replied: "I approveof her neutral and pacific attitude in world affairs, her efforts to industrialise the country and develop towards a modern community by democratic methods, her recognition of the importance of birth control in a country of vast population and food shortage.''
