In the year 1965, Sonia Maino, a 19-year-old Italian student met a young Indian boy, Rajiv Gandhi, while they were both studying in Cambridge. She was born into a modest family in suburban Turin, where her father was a strict man who kept a close eye on his three daughters. Much to his chagrin, his painfully-shy middle daughter, of whom he was especially protective, fell in love with a man belonging the most powerful family in India. This marked the beginning of a story unlike any other - of a carefree Italian girl who was compelled to take on the murky world of rajneeti. With information sourced from close friends and colleagues, this book examines how Sonia's courage, honesty, and dedication have made her a leader in the eyes of one-sixth of humanity. From her idyllic childhood to her passionate love affair, and from her days as a docile daughter-in-law to her current status of being the only indian politician to have refused prime ministership - The Red Sari tells the story of an extraordinary woman whose dreams of home, hearth, and anonymous living were struck down by the hands of fate. This book examines the lives of the famous Nehru-Gandhi family set against the backdrop of the Bangladesh War, the Emergency, Operation Blue Star, and other events that have shaped modern Indian history. Author Javier Moro, a tireless investigator, writes the true story of a naìˆve young woman, confronted by the complicated and dangerous world of Indian politics and surrounded by the intrigues of a family that is both reviled and admired.
