Researchers find Nehru’s birth mystery of Mathura connection, which is lost in oblivion.
125th birth anniversary invites research and quarries.
Biography writers also missed this chapter of Mathura,
The flagbearer of world peace, architect of the nation and the first prime minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru although enjoyed hundreds of the books on his personality and contributions in many fields at national and international level but unfortunately not even a single one could reveal the facts belonging to religious rituals performed by his father Pandit Motilal Nehru at Mathura with a desire to have a son.
The mystery was revealed by Dr. S. C. Sharma in a meeting held at Vishram Ghat in Mathura to celebrate children’s day under the aegis of Dr. R. C. Sharma Memorial Research & Welfare Institute. Dr. Sharma, the researcher  told that when Pandit Motilal Nehru had been wandering with the grief of  not having the son, he performed religious rituals in 1888 at Mathura on the suggestions of his guru and purohit of Kashmiri pandits Bankali Chaubey.
It was a coincidence that after ten months of the rituals Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru was born on 14th November 1889 in Prayag. Dr. Sharma told further that Pandit Motilal Nehru was so overwhelmed with the miracle of the ritual that he immediately ordered for building Govardhan Nath temple at Vishram Ghat in Mathura. Simultaneously he also got a dharmashala to be built for Kashmiri pilgrims visiting Mathura nearby same area in Maru gali.  The construction of either of these monumental works were put under the charge of his elder brother Bansidhar Nehru and munshi Mubarak Ali.
Dr. Sharma raised the question that biography writers of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru never penned the Mathura chapter in spite of knowing the coexistence of the relationship between the successors of Bankali Chaubey and Mrs Indira Gandhi. 

Even the eminent writers like B. R. Nanda, S. Gopalakrishnan and M. J. Akbar couldn’t illustrate the reality although they painted fancy and colorful depictions of Motilal Nehru’s wandering to have a son based on people’s hearsay.
If we believe the story narrated by present descendants of Bankali Chaubey “ Most of the documents lying with us provide the information about Pandit Motilal Nehru and after in order that earlier documents in Persian are neither legible to us nor any oral information is available from tradition.” said Ravinndra Nath.

Moreover, family history written by Bansidhar Nehru and popularized by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru explains that first known ancestor Raj Kaul left the divine valley in 1712 in search of fortunes in the plains. His two sons Mauzaram Nehru and Laxmidhar Nehru attained tremendous name and fame in East India Company and Mughal court together. And Gangadhar Nehru the successor of Laxmidhar Nehru became the kotwal of Delhi during the reign of last Mughal emperor Bahadurshah Zafar II. Meanwhile the ferocious storm of 1857 uprooted Mughal as well as Nehru dynasty from Delhi.
Thus Nehru family moved towards Agra via Mathura under the patronage of Gangadhar Nehru. In Agra Bansidhar Nehru joined the court as judgement writer and Nandlal became a teacher to Khetri ruler. Gangadhar Nehru passed away in adverse circumstances at the age of 34 and after his demise Pandit Motilal Nehru was born on 6th May 1861 in Agra.
Before beginning the programme the people gathered at the occasion offered flowered to Ma Yamuna and Pt J. L. Nehru followed by slogans like Bharat Mata Ki Jai . Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Amar Rahen. At this occasion  Ravindra Nath Chaturvedi, Biharilal Chaturvedi, Badam Chaturvedi, Bali Chaturvedi, Yogendra Chaturvedi, Ravindra Yadav, Sandip Yadav, Mansola ji etc were present.
