A floral tribute to Late Mrs. Indira Gandhi paid by me as flashed on the f.b on November 01,2010.

Indira Gandhi had lived in the best of time and worst of time who was born on the 19 th of November 1917 at Allahabad and died on the 31st of October 1984 at the age of sixty six at New Delhi in India.She had served the nation as its Prime Minister from the 24th of January 1966 to the 24th of March 1977 and again f...rom the 14th of January 1980 to the 31st of October 1984.She was pioneer of green revoution in our country and fought Pak war in 1971.She had invited the late Pak. President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto to Shimla for a week-long summit. After the near-failure of the talks, the two heads of state eventually signed the Shimla Agreement, which bound the two countries to resolve the Kashmir dispute by negotiations and peaceful means. Due to her antipathy for Nixon, relations with the United States grew distant, while relations with the Soviet Union grew closer.Let us pay our floral tribute to Her memories and emulate Her Patriotism in our life!

Indira Gandhi had held a cabinet portfolio as minister of information and broadcasting in Lal Bhadur Shastri's government. She was the only child of Nehru, who was also her mentor in the nationalist movement. The Syndicate selected her as minister when Shastri died in 1966 even though her eligibility was challenged by Morarji Desai, a veteran nationalist and long-time aspirant to that office. The Congress "bosses" were apparently looking for a leading figure acceptable to the masses, who could command general support during the next general election but who would also acquiesce to their guidance. Hardly had Indira Gandhi begun in office than she encountered a series of problems that defied easy solutions: Mizo tribal uprisings in the northeast; famine, labor unrest, and misery among the poor in the wake of rupee devaluation; and agitation in Punjab for linguistic and religious separatism! She served the nation as its Prime Minister from the 24th of January 1966 to the 24th of March 1977 and again from the 14 of January 1980 to the 31st of October 1984 he had faced many hurdles, got liberated Bangladesh from Pakistan. Unlike during the Emergency, when India registered significant economic and industrial progress, Gandhi's return to power was hindered by a series of woes and tragedies, beginning with Sanjay's death in June 1980 while attempting to perform stunts in his private airplane. Secessionist forces in Punjab and in the northeast and the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan in December 1979 consumed her energy. She had pioneered green revolution in the country and Pak. was was fought in 1971 very bravely. She began to involve the armed forces in resolving violent domestic conflicts between 1980 and 1984. In May 1984, Sikh extremists occupied the Golden Temple in Amritsar, converting it into a haven for terrorists. Gandhi responded in early June when she launched Operation Bluestar, which killed and wounded hundreds of soldiers, insurgents, and civilians (see Insurgent Movements and External Subversion, ch. 10). Guarding against further challenges to her power, she removed the chief ministers of Jammu and Kashmir and Andhra Pradesh just months before her assassination by her Sikh bodyguards on October 31, 1984. The news of Indira Gandhi's assassination plunged the whole country and other parts of India. She is remembered as one of the greatest statesmen of the world who lived and died for well-being of our motherland and that is why; she is adored by over billions of People even now spread round the globe.
