On her birthday which falls on 19th November, let’s look at a few quotes from Indira Gandhi, still the most fierce woman in Indian politics.
Indira Gandhi was one of the strongest women in Indian Politics. 19th November is her birthday and that made me think about the mighty and fierce women!
Indira Gandhi served as the Prime Minister of India for around 15 years across two different periods, and is widely regarded as one of the most important figures in the history of South Asian politics.
She is the only female Prime Minister, and the 2nd longest serving Prime Minister of India ever, she was strong enough to sent the Indian Army to East Pakistan in the 1971 war which led to the creation of Bangladesh.
Most of Indira Gandhi’s quotes are inspirational, giving importance to education, freedom, kids, power, poverty, and other things.
“People tend to forget their duties but remember their rights.
“Winning or losing of the election is less important than strengthening the country.”
“My grandfather once told me that there were two kinds of people; those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was much less competition.”
“I have lived a long life, and I am proud that I spent the whole of my life in the service of my people. I am only proud of this and nothing else. I shall continue to serve until my last breath, and when I die, I can say, that every drop of my blood will invigorate India and strengthen it.”
“Have a bias toward action – let’s see something happen now. You can break that big plan into small steps and take the first step right away.”
“This is why we feel that democracy’s important: because democracy allows you to have small explosions and therefore avoid the bigger explosions.”
“Martyrdom does not end something, it only a beginning.”
“Happiness is a state of mind, you know. I don’t think you are permanently happy. One is happy about certain things and not so happy about others.”
“Without courage, you cannot practice any other virtue. You have to have courage – courage of different kinds: first, intellectual courage, to sort out different values and make up your mind about which is the one which is right for you to follow. You have to have moral courage to stick up to that – no matter what comes in your way, no matter what the obstacle and the opposition is.”
“You soon realize that the peak you’ve climbed was one of the lowest, that the mountain was part of a chain of mountains, that there are still so many, so many mountains to climb…And the more you climb, the more you want to climb – even though you’re dead tired.”

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
Most women do not get to live their lives the way they want, on their own terms. So why should they be tied down in their old age?
Every morning, while dropping the kids at the bus stop, I find a grandfather waiting with his granddaughter. I see him again when I fetch the kids. This has been the pattern for the last few years.
He is seen actively participating in his granddaughter’s activities, from morning and evening walks to attending her parent-teachers meeting, sending her for extracurricular activities to even planning her birthday party. He is admired by all. He is appreciated for making himself useful in his old age. People rave that the doting grandfather is doing his duty towards his children and grandchildren. The much-admired grandfather is also a widower, having lost his wife years ago to chronic disease. It’s also to be noted that both his son and daughter-in-law are working parents.
Every day, the onlookers appreciate his sense of duty and dedication. They say that this is how the elderly should keep themselves occupied. They should bring up their grandchildren while their children go off to work.
