Indira Gandhi (1917-1984) was an Indian politician and stateswoman who served as the Prime Minister of India for three non-consecutive terms. She was born on November 19, 1917, in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India, into a political family. Her father, Jawaharlal Nehru, was the first Prime Minister of India, and her mother, Kamala Nehru, was an active member of the Indian independence movement.
Gandhi was educated at Somerville College, Oxford, where she studied history, and later became involved in the Indian National Congress, the leading political party in India. She played a significant role in the freedom struggle against British colonial rule and emerged as a prominent leader in her own right.
In 1966, following the death of then-Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri, Indira Gandhi was elected as the leader of the Indian National Congress and became the first woman to hold the position of Prime Minister in India. Her first term in office was marked by various challenges, including the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, which resulted in the creation of Bangladesh.
Gandhi implemented several policies during her tenure that aimed to modernize India and alleviate poverty. She introduced the nationalization of banks and pursued a policy of self-reliance, known as the “Garibi Hatao” (Eradicate Poverty) program. However, her government also faced criticism for authoritarian tendencies and the suspension of civil liberties during the Emergency period from 1975 to 1977.
Indira Gandhi’s political career was characterized by ups and downs. She lost the parliamentary elections in 1977 but made a comeback in 1980, winning the elections and becoming the Prime Minister for the second time. During her third term, she faced various challenges, including tensions with Sikh separatists in Punjab. In 1984, she ordered a military operation against armed militants hiding in the Golden Temple complex, leading to her assassination by her own Sikh bodyguards on October 31, 1984.
Indira Gandhi’s leadership left a significant impact on Indian politics and society. She is remembered for her strong and decisive leadership style, as well as her contributions to India’s development and her role in shaping the country’s foreign policy. Despite controversy and criticism, she remains a prominent figure in Indian history and a symbol of women’s political empowerment.
