This profusely illustrated biographical sketch printed on art papers tells you how in spite of being a democrat, Indira Gandhi turned a despot for nineteen months, how she then shed the totalitarian mantle in a defiant reversal to democratic norms.
She was born to turbulent times when India was in the throes of its battle for freedom from British rule. Her childhood memories were dominated by the presence of her illustrious father Jawaharlal Nehru, and others like Rabindranath Tagore and Mahatma Gandhi. She grew up not only as a woman of contemporary times but led a life that legends are made of. However, for Indira Gandhi, her true identity was always as a proud Indian.
Read in this book about the personal tragedies and political crises that stalked her throughout. Learn how this charismatic leader was always at home - be it with the international elite or with the masses - ruler for all her faults, who sought to see India great.
