Now in Braille

A father's letters to his daughter – 30 letters in all, caught the attention of the world when it was published as “Letters from a Father to his Daughter”. Jawaharlal Nehru wrote to his 10-year-old daughter Indira and filled his letters with historical events. The collection includes knowledge on creation, life, universe, ancient civilizations, world history and the Indian epics. The style is one a 10-year-old would easily absorb. The Letters were published a year after they were written in 1929. Now, a new Braille version will make it available to the visually challenged. The original has gone through many editions and both Indira Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra have written forewords for some of them. The Braille version was released recently at the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library.
