The uniqueness of Nehru, for Gandhi, lay in his ability to enact the modernity narrative. No one else could display his epic quality and novelistic nuance.
Nehru became modernity incarnate. No man embodied its political, aesthetic and ethical dimensions so immaculately. More endearing was the charm and sheer vulnerability he brought to it.
If there were an Oscar for modernity, he'd have swept it every year. No statesman anywhere was a match for his drama, humanity and warmth. Nehru went beyond the official definitions of modernity. He turned binaries into hyphens, hyphens into blends to create a smoothness, where style and content did not separate like wheat and chaff. He was Mr Modernity. If modernity had its man for all seasons, it was Jawaharlal Nehru.
Nehru remains an open hypothesis to be reinvented, questioned and constructed again. In playing out its vulnerabilities, in showing modernity and the enlightenment as constructs that can age, wear out, blossom, in emphasising its humanity.
Nehru enacted out the agency, the ordinary possibilities of a modern citizen.
