About this title

Synopsis:

In the year 1965, Sonia Maino, a 19-year-old Italian student met a young Indian boy, Rajiv Gandhi, while they were both studying in Cambridge. She was born into a modest family in suburban Turin, where her father was a strict man who kept a close eye on his three daughters. Much to his chagrin, his painfully-shy middle daughter, of whom he was especially protective, fell in love with a man belonging the most powerful family in India. This marked the beginning of a story unlike any other-of a carefree Italian girl who was compelled to take on the murky world of rajneeti. With information sourced from close friends and colleagues, this book examines how Sonias courage, honesty and dedication have made her a leader in the eyes of one-sixth of humanity. From her idyllic childhood to her passionate love affair and from her days as a docile daughter-in-law to her current status of being the only Indian politician to have refused prime ministership - 'The Red Sari' tells the story of an extraordinary woman whose dreams of home, hearth and anonymous living were struck down by the hands of fate. This book examines the lives of the famous Nehru - Gandhi family set against the backdrop of the Bangladesh War, the Emergency, Operation Blue Star and other events that have shaped modern Indian history. Author Javier Moro, a tireless investigator, writes the true story of a naive young woman, confronted by the complicated and dangerous world of Indian politics and surrounded by the intrigues of a family that is both reviled and admired.

Review:

The book is a biography of Sonia Gandhi. The major part of the books consist of political biography of Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi and how their political life has influenced her. The love story of Sonia and Rajiv Gandhi was gripping. It was interesting to know the perspectives of Indira Gandhi behind the Bangladesh War and Operation Blue Star. The book also delved into the internal family politics of the Gandhi family, between Rajiv and Sanjay, Sonia and Maneka Gandhi and Indira Gandhi. --Soumya Feb 15, 2015

Book describing the simplicity of a high profile family. An eye opener to all. Great work !!!! without any controversies... --Rajesh Nair Jun 18, 2015

It is a good read . It gives you some insight of the political vision and how Gandhis have covered their journey. The first part is exhaustive where as in the later part the writer rushes through. Though this book tells only one side of the story i.e. from gandhis perspective --Dinesh Chaudhary Apr 30, 2015
