In the early days of the Cold War and Decolonisation in Asia, Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first Prime Minister, proclaimed a world vision of neutralism (later called non-alignment) and anticolonialism. This ran counter to the Anglo-American anxieties regarding the spread of Communism in India and Asia. Despite the historical linkages, constitutional continuities and inter-governmental contacts relations between New Delhi and the West steadily deteriorated. However, there remained an informal group of individuals in Britain and America who maintained their pre-1947 affinity with Nehru and championed his foreign policy orientation to their political establishment. This article focuses on one such ‘friend of India’—the Quaker pacifist Horace Gundry Alexander.
