The rise of Sonia Gandhi to leader of the venerable Congress party is one of the most remarkable stories of recent times, even in the unpredictable world of Indian politics. The story of how an apolitical housewife—who was dead set against the entrance of her husband, Rajiv Gandhi, into the political arena—emerged as an astute player of the game herself is one that has never been told. Adding to the enigma is her reserve—she has given very few interviews and remains a very private person. In Sonia: A Biography, journalist Rasheed Kidwai offers the first close look at the person and the ... View more info
