Motilal Nehru Motilal Nehru (1861-1931) belonged to a distinguished Brahmin family from Kashmir. After studying law at Muir College in Allahabad, he built up a prosperous legal practice and adopted a Western style of life. He played an active role in the Indian National Congress.

It was only in 1920, however, that, partly under the influence of Mohandas Gandhi, he committed himself fully to the nationalist cause. He took part in campaigns of direct action and was jailed twice. He also led the nationalist opposition within the Legislative Assembly that the British had established. In 1928, he prepared what has become known as the Nehru Report. This was the first attempt to prepare a constitution for an independent India.
