Indira, She feared darkness. Left alone, lonely, the child grew up with a will that often touched defiance. Amongst others, the influence of her noble father, Jawaharlal, bore most on her, leaving on her mind an image of India's beauty, oneness and greatness. She did not tire in here work, as it was for India, one India, and for the weak of the world.
The vision of an ideal, unceasing energy and deep dedication to the cause gave her the strength, power and glory-forever an example. Intensely involved, yet withdrawn, unbending, lofty, cool and fearless, Indira made a unique leader and a great Prime Minister who looked on India and the world as indivisible, for peace and growth.
