Indira Gandhi: A Biography by Pupul Jayakar

18th President of France ,Charles de Gaulle when asked by reporter “What Impression Indira Gandhi made on you?, he replied-
“Those Fragile shoulders on which the huge destiny of India rests, and they don’t shrink from the burden.”

After reading Katherine frank’s biography on Indira Gandhi I was very much entice to read Pupul Jaykar’s biography on this enigmatic women. Pupul Jayakar had a close relationship with three prime ministers: Jawaharlal Nehru, his daughter Indira Gandhi and her son Rajiv Gandhi. She later served as cultural adviser to Indira and Rajiv Gandhi, confirming her preeminence in cultural matters. Being a close friend to Indira Gandhi, Jaykar’s biography gives you all the opportunity to peep in Indira’s life and know her like never before.

Indira was product of many cultures. Her close association with the freedom struggle and stalwarts of independence movement had molded her life. In many ways she was a reflection of her father’s mind. Her early upbringing and her father’s interest expressed with such limpidity in his letters to her gave her a love of adventure, fearlessness, an inbuilt sense of secular; it also awakened live curiosity and constant search for new frontiers. Her years in England and her association with Feroz Gandhi’s left wing friends, journalists and political thinker had given her a radical thinking. She was a rebel, anti traditional and anti establishment but a natural consciousness kept her away from left commitments. Astrology, prognostication, ritual, superstition have little place in her cautiousness. Her alone year in Leysin had encouraged her to observe, to be silent and let the seasons roll by. But in spite of her early exposure to intellectual and powerful activities, she had lived within the confines of a society, which hemmed her in, gave her little opportunity to reach out, and explore the art or investigate a life of mind.

Throughout her political life Indira Gandhi rarely forgot that she was living and creating history, it was a sense her father had transmitted to her. Her ability to make tough choices, take the hard gamble and stand unmoved before the hostile crowd was astonishing. Her charm, her stamina her 1980 comeback, her fortitude when she lost a son-Sanjay, too is recorded. She was an independent woman. She was no one’s and no super powers stooge.

Unlike Kathrine Frank ,who shows you personal life of Indira and narrates Indira more as a person involving all close people of Indira Gandhi, Jaykar gives you minute detail of her political life, understanding of her decisions, her transformation from shy and reserved daughter to the ruthless politician. Jaykar accounts very less pages on Ms.Gandhi’s Personal life, she consciously keep it conceal. Book will not disappoint you, rather make you respect Tigress Of India a bit more. Happy Reading!!
