Nehru, 1963: I do not think that there is any project on such a grand scale being undertaken anywhere else in the world. The leading countries of the world have many huge schemes, but a project as gigantic and difficult as Bhakra-Nangal is not being undertaken anywhere else… It is a symbol of a nation which is alive and on the move Nehru, 1955: When you see a new city coming up, you wonder what shape it will take, for no city can be a mere collection of buildings made of brick and mortar. There has to be something more. It gives a hint of the shape a society will likely take in the future. So I was especially interested in Chandigarh. I am happy that the people of Punjab did not make the mistake of putting some old city as their capital.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
