Sonia Gandhi, as a young mother had once told the veteran columnist Tavleen Singh that she would rather see her children beg on the streets than join politics. Singh’s “Durbar”, her latest book, offers a unique glimpse of the Gandhi family and especially into the married life of Rajiv and Sonia which she began to write soon after Rajiv's death.

 

 

Sonia Gandhi was vehemently against her children joining politics but interestingly, the powerful and controlled image that Sonia has cultivated clashes with her image of the wife of the son of an influential prime minister.

 

 

 

Sonia’s Indianization may have happened over the tragedies that hit her family.  It seemed that Sonia played no politics after Rajiv's election as prime minister but she began a process of weeding out from Rajiv's inner circle people whom she considered unsuitable.
