Indira Gandhi
By: Sindhu S.
New Jersey, Grade 3



My person is Indira Ghandi. She was born on November
19,1917 in Allahabad, India. She died on October 31,
1984. She was the only child of Jawaharlal Nehru.
She was a freedom fighter and later Prime Minister of
India. She did it because she wanted to have freedom
for everybody. In 1962, during the Chinese-Indian
border war, she coordinated civil defense activities.
I picked her because she was from my country and also
because she was the first lady Prime Minister.
