This woman, was the most respectable electoral choice India has ever made for PM. Just compare her to PM Modi who cannot hold a candle to her charisma, intellect and pedigree. Indian democracy has gone backward in 30 years, Modi cannot even express forget defend himself because he can’t speak English. ?
Vidhi asked me to contextualise my thoughts in addition to hers. I would hazard that Indira was India’s best PM; she basically destroyed Pakistan.
If it had been Nehru or Shastri or even Modi instead of Indira there would have been an East Pakistan Wing. It took Indira’s grit and steel to shatter India’s more persistent enemy once and for all.
Ps: I just finished the video and I found it thrilling. Indira reminds me of Benazir but an even grander more formidable figure; a living Mother India.
I love the way Indira, as Durga, dispatched the arrogant white male journalist.
“It’s a question of whether I want to be PM.”
“Unlike Britain, which is a tiny country India is not.”
“The future of India is for us to decide.”
Her pithy response at the end, “because I am not guilty.”
The poncy journalist thought he would be taking Indira to task but instead she smashed him and his pretensions to smithereens!!
