The Unseen Indira Gandhi: Through Her Physician's Eyes

K.P. Mathu (Author)

The book is an intimate look at probably India’s best-loved Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, with the solitary exception of her father and the first person to hold that post, Jawaharlal Nehru. While biographers have generally seen Indira only through the lens of politics, Dr Mathur gives us a moving and witty account of the three-term PM as a person. The book provides us with a rare look at the trajectory of her development as a politician as well.

About the author

K.P. Mathu

Dr K.P. Mathur joined the Safdarjung Hospital as a physician in 1953. His patients included personalities like V.K. Krishna Menon, Dr S. Radhakrishnan, G.B. Pant and Lal Bahadur Shastri, among others. Later, when Indira Gandhi became PM in 1966 and required the services of a physician, Dr Mathur took charge. Thus began an association that lasted for almost 20 years; in fact, Dr Mathur was one of the last persons whom Indira Gandhi met before she was assassinated by her guards on October 31, 1984.
