Description

This is a book which gives an insider’s account of Indira Gandhi’s second innings as India’s prime minister.

This is a book which gives an insider’s account of Indira Gandhi’s second innings as India’s prime minister. P C Alexander’s was a vantage view of Indira Gandhi’s prime ministership from 1981 till her assassination and Rajiv Gandhi’s taking over as Prime Minister in October 1984. During this period he served as Mrs. Gandhi’s principal secretary, involved by her own wishes, not only in government affairs but also in her party, political, and sometimes, personal maters.

It is rare for Indian civil servants to write about the events they have observed during their career. To quote Dr. Alexander, he has chosen to depart from this tradition because “ I have been greatly impelled by sense of history and of duty to record the events relating to the most critical years of Indira Gandhi’s life. I happened to have been the only witness to some of them..”
