What his country needed?

RAMACHANDRA GUHA writes in The Hindu In his years as Prime Minister, Nehru followed Tagore in seeking a synthesis of tradition and modernity, in taking from the West what his country needed while upholding and even avowing the civilisational antiquity of India”. 

I have two things to ask here: “what his country needed” nobody asked him to import socialism to kill the common people who otherwise would have managed their problems themselves- producing of what they want and if they have more would share with other who doesn’t have things like that. 

Second thing is why Nehru has not published his letters sent to Edwina Mountbatten?
