Uncle Nehru, Please Send An Elephant!

Tax included.

One day, when Prime Minister Nehru opened his overstuffed mail bag, out tumbled hundreds of colourfully decorated letters — from children in Japan! “We have never seen a live elephant,” they said. “Could you kindly send us one from India?” How could he refuse? “Uncle Nehru” loved children. And newly independent India, despite struggling with many problems, wanted to make friends!

This exuberant picture book introduces India’s first Prime Minister to children through his unique elephant diplomacy, taking readers across land and sea to tell how Indira, Ambika, Murugan and others became India’s BIG gifts to the world.
