During these years,humanity is perhaps,living through the most dangerous period of all its history. The main cause of present tension and disorder is the lack of co-ordination between modern science and a spirit of humanism. These two factors should be seen as complementary to each other and whenever a proper co-ordination is kept between them, life become more pleasurable at the individual and social levels.Propagation of humanism is thus the remedy for the present crisis and also the promise for a bright future.But we are living in a period when humanism is regarded, if at all,as one of the lesser virtues. There were a handful of men who were deeply committed to humanism. Jawaharlal Nehru was one such personality. He regarded humanism as his God and service of mankind as his religion. As a humanist,he affirmed full faith in man and his socialist, secularist,democratic ideas, his passion for science & technology and his idea of peaceful co-existence among nations cannot be understood save in the context of his deep belief in man and in dignity of human existence.The present work is an attempt to bring about this humanistic implications found in the life and thought of Nehru.
