I have always admired Indira Gandhi. She was a lioness in her own way. That’s why I picked up an Indira Gandhi biography written by Katherine Frank. I was astounded after reading it. The author wrote the biography with utmost honesty. She did not shy away from disclosing the ugly parts. However, I did feel that the book could have been more comprehensive. Author could have touched more on Operation Blue Star and Indira Gandhi’s courtship with Feroze Gandhi.
Every book has a different rhythm to it. Some are fast paced and get you running, some are slow and engulfs you in their flame, often slowly revealing their secrets. Every book has its own beauty, a charm that is captivating. The book on Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson is fast paced and gets you in the energy of Steve Jobs himself.
