'Indira: A Life Of Courage', showcashes 200-plus images of Indira Gandhi at Swaraj Bhawan
As soon as one enters Swaraj Bhawan in Allahabad, a portrait of a very young Indira greets the eye. Taken in 1926 in Geneva, Indira in the image bears an uncanny resemblance to Anne Frank. “It’s amazing how almost everyone has called this photo very ‘Anne Frank-ish," says Deepthi Sasidharan. This photograph is one of the 200-plus images of Gandhi being showcased as part of the exhibition, Indira: A Life Of Courage, co-curated by Sasidharan and Pramod Kumar K.G.
