Indira Gandhi: Child of Politics

Sub title: Puffin Lives

A loving daughter, a caring mother, an affectionate grandmother a confident globetrotter and finally prime minister, Indira slipped into each role with ease.’

 
The story of India's first woman prime minister is no ordinary story. It is the story of a girl for whom sacrifice and loss came early. For whom growing up meant seeing her father drift in and out of jail and a mother in and out of hospital. Wearing khadi and organizing her own band of troops. Combating loneliness and giving up the things she loved for a bigger cause.

With the freedom struggle playing out in the background Indira Gandhi's life was inextricably linked to the politics and destiny of her country. In this compelling biography, Sreelata Menon vividly recreates the life and times of a young girl who goes on to become one of the most powerful and charismatic leaders of the world. Filled with little-known facts about Indira Gandhi’s life this book is a fascinating read that brings to light the different facets of her personality.

But, even more than that, he longs to have a specially conducted tour of Wonka's enormous chocolate factory. The Golden Ticket allows Charlie to fulfil his wish, and he finds himself in a 'world of mystic and marvellous surprises'. But there are dangers in store as well as the mesmerizing delights of Eatable Marshmallow Pillows and Lickable Wallpaper, especially for such unlovable characters as Veruca Salt, who disappears down the Great Rubbish Chute, or Augustus Gloop who falls into a river of hot melted chocolate...Now in its 50th year of publication, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory continues to delight and enthrall readers of all ages.
