“Mrs Gandhi Is Dead”: 24 Hours That Changed India’s History
To commemorate the centenary celebrations of Indira Gandhi’s birth anniversary on 19 November, The Indira Gandhi Memorial Trust will be exhibiting an exclusive collection of over 300 photographs.
Deepthi Sasidharan and Pramod Kumar KG, who have been working on the documentation and digitisation of over 90,000 photographs for the past four years, are the curators of the photo exhibition.
From a candid moment shared with her grandchildren Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi, to a deep-in-thought Prime Minister overseeing a flood ravaged Orissa in 1966, some rare and unseen photographs of Indira Gandhi show her journey as a woman of courage and charisma.
These photographic exhibition will be open to the public on 21 November 2017 at 1, Safdarjung Road, her erstwhile residence, and now home to the Indira Gandhi Memorial Museum (IGMM).
