      Sanjay and his diabolical activities in that period, however, posed a trickier legacy to repudiate. Sanjay: We'll see after Ambika Soni retires. Even the politicians of that era shied away from public excess and practised a khadi culture. Indira Gandhi sought to remain neutral, desperately trying to maintain some semblance of family peace. He exacerbated her fear that any loss of political power would endanger her family's life and her own.

      A bust of Lutyens in the former Viceroy's House is the only statue of a Westerner left in its original position in New Delhi. Characters like Elizabeth Sass Brunner lent colour with her quaintly bohemian get up usually a table cloth worn like a poncho. Karl Khandelavala, Helen Chamanlal, the sisters of Amrita Shergill, Sir Malcom Macdonald, the British high commissioner, the dashing Count Ostorov and the French ambassador were among those who formed a small coterie of art lovers. Amteshwar was too grieved to apply her mind to this aspect.

      Although hailed as Mrs Gandhi's ordained successor-"You have stolen our thunder", she declared at a Congress party session near Chandigarh-Sanjay held no official position. Its surrounding area contains a diverse chalk flora including the protected hairy mallow Althaea hirsuta. Heavy police bandobast was required to keep the peace. The area was once known for its walnut groves and some house gardens still contain walnut tees.

This infuriated Indira further. It was able to shake off the Sanjay albatross around its neck. A big land grab operation was on. Justice Shah and Khanna were no match for them. Bankers, cabinet ministers and captains of industry who opposed or resisted Sanjay's muscle-flexing were threatened or sent packing; Mrs Gandhi remained impervious to the outcry in Parliament or the raging disquiet in the PMO.

It might be useful to remember that before these three editors scooped up Sanjay Gandhi from oblivion, their energies were concentrated on scooping up Mrs Gandhi.

It was an instant success.

There, in a much smaller, cramped house with files, books and trunks piled up on all sides, Indira took up residence with her family and five dogs. She was abandoned by most of her friends.
