What do you think of Indira?

I'm a big fan of Indira Gandhi! The  book "INDIRA by Katherine Frank" made me a big fan of Indira...SHE IS THE REAL POLITICAL LEADER! I adore for her boldness...her vision...ClapClapClap

Is she capable of being called one of the Great Indians?

Definetly!But she need not be compared to GOD Men and GOD womenTongue..she is a wonderful leader..India needs such leader now..Smile

Your thoughts on the state of emergency?

What has happend has happend....we cannot do anything about it nowWink...however cannot comment on it muchSmile

How did your viewpoint of Indira change  during the Emergency (a lot of you were probably in your diapers then LOL, but how did your parents viewpoints change during this time)? My parents did'nt face any problems during emergency..they said..life was very proper..all the people performed their duties very punctuallySmile..

Who or what do you think she feared the most?

I respect,pity her.She did'nt get what she wanted .....she loved Feroz..he too loved her..circumstances and the human emotions...made them live seperate...may be she was alone....though theree were several men in her life.....in the role of father,husband,friends,Sons...May be Indira is not that harsh as she is assumed to beSmile

Was she a good prime minister?

Definetly..thebest Prime Minister till dateClap

A leader of a nation should be able to put the feelings of a majority/minority faith over the security of the nation and this is such a rare quality amongst South Asian politicians, she had a lot of missteps in her career like creating the whole crisis with Bhindranwale or the LTTE, but when push came to shove she was willing to put the nation over anything else and desert her personal politics for that, that is something that is admirable

I hate the (Nehru)Gandhi clan, but have to respect her for this, hate her politics, but in a time when we are hardly have any great Indian politicians, she is head and shoulders above others

well said but i would appreciate if you could answer the questions on the first page. Smile  same goes for qwerts and lighthouse.  all my life i've had a biased view of Indira......from ppl who didn't like her.  i just want to get differing viewpoints about her.

my post wasn't supposed to turn into a bhindranwale vs. gandhi debate....so i'd like to steer clear from that.

and thanks mythili_kiran for appreciating my post. Smile

I think she, mother Teresa and indra nooyi are the most salient examples which should make a todays woman proud to be one... And Sareg has brought out her strengths wonderfully.... Smile

She was one of the Most Capable Indians, who made an adress to India abroad.

 I don't know exactly, but it is said to be a lot of human right violation has been done at that time.

According to my parents the people were a lot more effieiently done their duties at that time due to  fear.

Yes, Comparatively she was a good prime minister. A very strong prime minister. But  I disagree with some of her deeds.
