About the Book: According to this biography about Indira Gandhi, it was no surprise that Indira’s public and private lives were set against a political backdrop. Being the only daughter of India’s first Prime Minister, Indira was essentially a child of politics. From her birth in 1917 until her death in 1984, Indira had served two terms in the role of Prime Minister. She had also attained other notable positions such as the Minister of Defence, Minister of External Affairs, and Minister of Finance. During her lifetime, Indira had established herself as a prominent political figure and leader in India. Apart from the factual information that can be learned about India’s first lady Prime Minister, Jayakar also uncovers Gandhi’s numerous personalities. This biography is filled with startling insights which a close friend, relative, or employee would be able to gather.
