What I Really Think About Indira Gandhi
A researcher asked me (via email) what I really
thought of Indira Gandhi. The summary of my answer:
I am proud of Indira Gandhi (no relation to Mahatma Gandhi) for holding India together,
for winning the 1971 war against USA-blessed Pakistan.
I blame Indira Gandhi, for her abuse of power and democracy, for
her lack of vision, for sacrificing the nation's interests
for the benefit of her coterie, and for playing immoral (and bloody)
politics against the Sikhs.
I just cannot deny her important role in forming of
20th Century India. Neither can I deny that she died
while serving the nation, and hence deserves the reverence
of a martyr.
