Nehru's affair with Allen Dulles

Everybody knows about Nehru's affair with Lady Mountbatten but what about his fling with, notorious slut & Cold War era, CIA chief Allen Dulles?
 The young Dulles had come  to Allahabad, in 1914, to teach Agronomy to horny handed Indian peasants by the time honoured method of making them memorize Shakespeare. When this occupation palled he'd drop in on the Nehru's at Anand Bhawan for a spot of R&R.
This is not to say there was any great love love lost between the Princeton graduate and the Cambridge alumnus, still, to do him justice, Dulles did admit that the young Nehru was 'a stiff fellow' which, at the end of the day, is all that really matters in affairs of that kind.
It is a damning indictment of official Pakistani historiography that it has utterly failed to highlight the manner in which Nehru's amorous proclivities led to the betrayal of the Muslim cause, first by the British, but then also  the Americans.
Former BJP stalwart, Jaswant Singh, too, can't escape censure for concealing this skeleton in the closet of Nehruvian Diplomacy.
