ABOUT THE BOOK
Indira Gandhi is perhaps one of the few Indian leaders whose recognition factor has not diminished with time. Her legacy, both in terms of politics and progeny continue to impact the future of this country. In Indira GandhiÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬ÂThe Final Chapter Suraj ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“EskayÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ Sriram, through his cartoons and illustrations, presents a snapshot of the Indian political and social scene at the time.
Presented with tongue-in-cheek humour and cynicism, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“EskayÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ has an uncanny knack of getting to the heart of the matter with just a few swift strokes of his pen. He brings to light some of the serious problems which faced (and continue to face) India in a witty and lighthearted matter. What better way to reacquaint ourselves with the good, the bad, the uglyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Âand the humourous!ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Âevents that took place during the ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“final chapterÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ of IndiraÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s reign?
