Nehru Centre cordially invites you to a book talk and discussion on ‘Choices: Inside the Making of India’s Foreign Policy ' written by diplomat Shivshankar Menon.

These include the decision not to use overt military force against Pakistan after 26/11, the civil nuclear deal with the United States; the border agreement with China; the response to the last months of Sri Lanka’s brutal civil war and the thinking that underlay India’s No First Use nuclear policy.

Read Books - Develops critical thinking skills

Develops critical thinking skills

One of the primary benefits of reading books is its ability to develop critical thinking skills. For example, reading a mystery novel sharpens your mind. Critical thinking skills are crucial when it comes to making important day to day decisions. Reading requires an individual to think and process information in a way that watching television can’t. The more you read, the deeper your understanding becomes about what you’re reading and its application.
