P.C.

Alexanders was a vantage view of Indira Gandhis prime ministership from

1981 till her assassination and Rajiv Gandhis taking over as Prime Minister

in October 1984. During this period he served as Mrs.

Gandhis Principal Secretary, involved by her own wishes, not only in

government affairs but also in her party, political, and sometimes, personal

matters. It is thus an important and honest insiders account of much of what

happened during that period, including:







  • The

    rocky shoals through which her relations had to pass with two successive

    Presidents





  • New

    insights into Mrs.

    Gandhis role in the dismissals of the first communist government in Kerala

    in 1957, and N.T.Rama Raos government in Andhra Pradesh in 1984





  • The

    background on various cabinet reshuffles





  • Her

    assessment of key party and government colleagues





  • Her

    attitude towards those who had deserted her in her years out of power

    (1977-1980)





  • How

    Mrs.

    Gandhi seriously considered the possibility of contesting the Presidential

    election of 1982 and how she struck up an enduring political alliance with

    the hugely popular Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, MG Ramachandran





  • The

    major thrust Mrs.

    Gandhi made in improving Indias international relations





  • Indira

    Gandhis death and the drama behind Rajivs succession as Prime

    Minister.







Here,

then, is a book which gives an insiders account of Indira Gandhis second

innings as Indias Prime Minister.





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 Gandhis life.

I happened to have been the only witness to some of them....""
