Indira Gandhi: A Life in Nature

Indira Gandhi, prime minister of India for 16 years, was a controversial but very charismatic leader. What Jairam Ramesh reveals in this book is a hidden aspect of her personality and a crucial part of her life - her relationship with nature.

Ramesh tells readers why and how she made a private passion a public calling; how her views on the environment remained unchangeable even as her political and economic opinions changed; how she preserved India’s biodiversity; how she convinced her colleagues as she made significant decisions particularly regarding forests and wildlife; and how her own advanced instincts and beliefs resulted in landmark policies, programmes, initiatives, laws and institutions, that have remained even to this day.
