Indira Gandhi
1917 – 1984

Indira Gandhi has the distinction of being the first woman Prime Minister of India not once but four times – 1966, 1967, 1971 and 1980. She also fought a war against Pakistan in 1971 in the cause of Bangladesh. Belonging to the family of the Nehrus of India, Indira Gandhi breathed the spirit of patriotism even from her early youth. A woman with extraordinary courage and a will of her own, she came in conflict with the members of her party who differed from her on various matters of national interest. Following the split in the Congress in 1969, the party she led came to be called Congress (Indira). She was defeated in the elections of 1977. Her defeat was mainly due to the Emergency she proclaimed in June, 1975. She swept back to power in 1980 though the Congres lost heavily in various States. The cry of secessionism in Punjab was a challenge to her leadership. She ordered the army to clear the Golden Temple at Amritsar of all the militants through 'Operation Blue Star.' This provoked considerable resentment in the Sikh community. She was killed by one of her own bodyguards on October 31, 1984.

Indira Gandhi created the Vanara Sena movement for young girls and boys which played a small but notable role in the Indian Independence Movement, conducting protests and flag marches, as well as helping Congress politicians circulate sensitive publications and banned materials. In an often-told story, she smuggled out from her father's police-watched house an important document in her schoolbag that outlined plans for a major revolutionary initiative in the early 1930s.

Prakash
Mrs Indira Gandhi nationalized 20 big private banks and also nationalized private insurance business. The nationalization of banking and insurance business have far reaching repercussion as the banking sector expanded in the rural areas, which in turn created major changes in the socio economic conditions of rural sector. In the initial years, she was against the foreign companies as they were acting like monopolies but after assuming power in 1980 Mrs Gandhi attempted to open the Indian economy. Mrs Gandhi’s biggest contribution to the modern India was Nuclear Test in 1974 later carried forward by Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee. She was also instrumental in promoting Indian scientists for research in Space programme, which later helped the country in developing missile technology. Despite her contribution, there were several critics because of tough stand taken by her in the Governance.

It is the most wonderful site with the most wonderful sketches in it. Smt. Gandhi was the product of Shantiniketan of Gurudev Rabindranath Thakur and that is why she did not only create and liberate Bangladesh but also righly earned the name `Woman of the Millenium`. God only knows when we shall have another such person in our midst.
kuran c ghosh
I had the rare good fortune to work closely as Parliament Assistnt of Home Ministry when she was our Home Minister and Prime Minister, and Bangladesh was fighting its Liberation War. I worked for 72 hours in Office at a stretch and attended morning Parliamentary Briefing Meetings for two hours each on Wednesday and Thursday from 9 to 11 a.m.. to assist her and the other three Ministers (2 Ministers of State and a Dy. Home Minister. She never forgot to smile when someone spoke to her or wished her even casually. She dressed most meticulously for every occasion. She was Grace embodied.

When Smt Gandhi was still a tennager she was put in Shantiniketan to be trained by Tagore and thus she got the unique personality described in the world-famous lines penned by Tagore: Where the mind is without fear and the heax is held high, where knowledge is free.." etc. Let us salute the teacher in Tagore and the student in Mrs. Gandhi rightly dubbed "The woman of the Millenium" by the world.
