There are many a stories on romance between Edwina Mountbatten and Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru. There are different versions of it varying from one view to another. Some say there was something much deep in their sort of relationship, and there are some who hold a view that it was just a friendship between them without any thing else beyond that. Some even say that Edwina acted as an instrument to mobilise Pt. Nehru in favour of the British. Now that Pamela Mountbatten, born in April’1929 as second daughter of Lord and Lady Mountbatten, has come out with a new theme that her mother Edwina’s love for Pt. Nehru was just spiritual one and there was nothing else outside this, this has unbelievably given a new dimension to the whole story. If this was the fact, how was it that Louis Mountbatten remained upset till such time he left India. Philip Ziegler has given a detailed account of bitter relationship between Edwina and Louis continuing for a long time in his voluminous book ‘MOUNTBATTEN’. As the then young boys, we were told about lot of love stories between Edwina and Pt. Nehru including that both of them spent longer hours remaining together, and that both of them jointly enjoyed bath in the swimming pool. Events of course took a different turn after Mountbattens left India. Pt. Nehru not only forgot Edwina, he rather became quite indifferent to her. Once she came to India from England with a mind to meet Pt. Nehru, but he showed no interest and ignored her. She went back disappointed and disheartened. Pamela may say any thing as after all Edwina was her mother, but the truth as we learnt from time to time is that there is no question of there being simply a ‘spiritual’ sort of love between the two, it must have been a deep rooted physical relationship between them.
