      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

    Description

    Indira: The Life of Indira Nehru Gandhi is the definitive and the first non-partisan biography of Indira Gandhi, one of the most formidable political figures of the twentieth century.

    Summary of the Book

    Indira Gandhi was voted the Woman of the Millennium in a BBC poll in 2000. Indira’s entire life was influenced by Indian politics - since her birth in 1917, through the Partition and up to 1984, the year she was assassinated. And once she became the Prime Minister of India, she became one of the most powerful and important women in the world. This biography of Indira is the first to be written by a western woman. The book focuses on Indira’s life as a female leader of one of the most complex and politicised cultures in the world.

    Wonderful Book..!

    This book unfolds inspiring non partisan biography of our late PM Indira Gandhi who led this nation very efficiently with so many hurdles in her way. She was undoubtedly responsible for shaping India's destiny and bring us a national self-esteem. It would be shocking to know that her life was fully with challenges though she was brought up in a influential family. Also, it unfolds how she suffered from bad health for more than three decades. In addition to that, Katherine Frank has tried to d...

    She is one my favorite and most inspirational woman in World History.
    And yes, Katherine Frank has delivered a classic biography of her.
    I am very happy and excited to have got this and actually to have owned it.
    Thanks to Flipkart for correct delivery at the mentioned duration.

    The B/W pictures in-between the pages are really exciting and it is nice to see them. I never knew how She looked when she was 18 or 20, and here I know it now.

    THE LIFE OF INDIRA NEHRU GANDHI (English)

    Excellent book!! Cannot stop reading it. Many facts about Indira as well as the politics of India during her time are explained in a simple yet catchy manner. Its a no-non-sense book. And as usual Flipkart was at its best in service.

    INDIRA the GREAT INDIAN

    I read this book first some 10 years back. Indira's life was a journey replete with trials and tribulations of all kinds. At times, a reader would have tears in the eyes touched by the sufferings of a woman who was alone most of her life.

    I bought this book now again to gift the copy to a friend of mine.

    Indira was a true nationalist and she faced everything with exceptional courage and fortitude. The boo manages to bring out these vividly through an emotion-packed narration.

    Those wanti...
