The love Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru had for Lady Edwina Mountbatten was chivalric and it was not physical, says a new book by Lady Pamela Mountbatten, the daughter of Lord Mountbatten. In an exclusive interview to Karan Thapar, Lady Pamela speaks about Nehru-Edwina relationship and how it influenced history. Lady Pamela speaks about Kashmir, Partition and how her father could never “crack” Jinnah.

Hello and welcome to Devil’s Advocate. Lord Mountbatten’s daughter, Lady Pamela, has written a book India Remembered about the time she spent in the country when her father was the last Viceroy and the first Governor General. Tonight in the first of a two-part series I shall talk to Lady Pamela about her memories of Jawaharlal Nehru, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and Mohammad Ali Jinnah.
