    A 5 page research paper that contrasts and compares the leadership skills of Martin Luther King and Indira Gandhi. The writer argues that an examination of the leadership skills and accomplishments of King and Gandhi demonstrates that, while there is much to applaud in Mrs. Gandhi's political career, history has judged King's leadership more positively than India's that of famous prime minister.

  • Yogesh Chadha Gandhi A Life

    This is a 5 page book review of “Gandhi: A Life” by Yogesh Chadha (1997). Gandhi’s peaceful process was integral in the negotiations of the independence of India and while his methods may have seemed against many of the traditions of the Hindus, his acceptance of other religions and Western ways paved the way for a new and independent India. While Chadha used historical methods to relate the biography of Gandhi and tries to strip away several myths about the saint, he at the same time shows how Gandhi in his open, accepting and non-violent resistance was able to unite the Indian people toward a new independence even at the cost of his own life. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • 'Emergency' and Indira Gandhi

    15 pages in length. The Emergency can be seen as a milestone of continuing negotiation between 'traditional' Indian ideas/institutions and the modern progressive ideals embraced by the Congress Party that remain alien to most of the Indian population. Analyzing the fundamental basis behind the Emergency, one finds that modernity in India has always been laid on society from the top, with all power solely residing with the Congress and the Nehru family. However, no matter how much power is concentrated within the central government with all their Nehruian ideals, the fact remains how real power lies between that at the center and the extraordinary stratification throughout the rest of the country, which functioned upon an entirely different basis. Under Indira Gandhi, as well as that of her father, the central government's point of view has always maintained a sense of a nation being jeopardized by its various constituents; as such, the nation-state must be defended. Clearly, there exists the entrenched idea of how the Nehru family has long upheld a lock upon the progressive change in India and, thus, must play an essential role in the defense of this nation-state. Bibliography lists 16 sources.
