    International relations – whether it is with the USSR, Palastina or African countries, the statesmanship of Nehru and Indira Gandhi is evident. It is based on shared values – both human as well as political. And they stuck to their ideals in thick and thin.

    I really liked the lively photo of late Mrs. Indira ji. Just wondering why no such stamps have been issued by our country in honour of Mrs. Gandhi
