Zareer Masani's biography of Mrs Gandhi displaces all previous efforts at understanding the enigmatic Indian leader. Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi worked for socialist measures which they believed would hasten a new society, but, at the same time, they have had to depend for political support on some of the very interests that would be harmed by any major redistribution of wealth and power.

Indira Gandhi has been to biographers what Fanny Hill has been to pornography writers - the sluice gate which has resulted in a flood. Considering the fact that the book was originally published in 75 and its import banned into India (Masani added a last chapter on the Emergency) it has one lesson for intellectuals: Look down from your ivory towers and perhaps you will see that society is built in the sweat and grime below. It is that which will determine the ultimate encirclement of the ivory tower.

She did not consider herself a feminist but was concerned with issues relating to women and she saw her own success as proof that talented women could rise to the top. During her administration, equal pay for men and women was enshrined in the constitution.
