Indira Gandhi : an intimate biography by Pupul Jayakar( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Indira Gandhi was brutally assassinated in 1984, she had lived through India's tortured liberation from the British Empire, the bloody era of partition, and the monumental difficulties associated with creating and sustaining the world's largest and most troubled democratic nation. This unique, intimate biography of one of the first women heads of state in modern history shows Indira growing from the shy daughter of the great Jawaharlal Nehru to the accomplished politician she eventually became. Very few people knew Indira beyond the facade, and there has been nothing written about her that illumines the conflicting aspects of her character: aloof but charming; lonely but ferocious in defense of her own - particularly her son Sanjay; sensitive and cultivated but capable of cold arrogance; devoted to her nation but blind to some of the cruelties she inflicted; a warm mother and grandmother but a calculating politician. A friend of Indira's for more than thirty years, Pupul Jayakar is uniquely qualified to assess and illuminate this complex woman in depth. Jayakar reveals Indira's thoughts and feelings, her loves and emotional entanglements, her blunders and her great courage. She is also able to situate the Nehru family in the context of modern Indian history in a way that is vivid to the Western reader. In Indira Gandhi, Pupul Jayakar gives us a penetrating but balanced account of one of the twentieth century's most remarkable women, a towering figure whose virtues and vices will be debated for a long time to come

1909, als er gerade vierzehn war, wurde Krishnamurti als zukünftiger Weltlehrer proklamiert, in dem sich Maitreya, der Bodhisattva des Mitgefühls, manifestieren würde. Verkündigt wurde dies von Annie Besant, der damaligen Präsidentin der Theosophischen Gesellschaft, die es als ihre Aufgabe sieht, die grundlegenden Gemeinsamkeiten der Weltreligionen herauszuarbeiten. Annie Besant bereitete Krishnamurti auf seine Rolle als Auserwählter vor. Zwanzig Jahre später vollzog sich jedoch in Krishnamurti eine tiefgreifende Wandlung. Darauf hin trat er als eigenständiger Lehrer in Erscheinung, den man an der Originalität seiner Präsentation der Wahrheit als wahren spirituellen Lehrer erkannte. Krishnamurti durchlief schwere körperliche und emotionale Prüfungen, bevor er den Gipfel der Freiheit erreichte. Fortan lehrte er in aller Welt und zog mitunter große Menschenmassen an. Staatsmänner (z. B. Nehru und Indira Gandhi) suchten seinen Rat und Wissenschaftler und Künstler ließen sich von ihm inspirieren. Krishnamurti verstarb 1986 im Alter von fast 91 Jahren
