In her visit to Dhaka on Monday, Congress President Sonia Gandhi said that, “Courage and sensitivity do not always go hand in hand, yet Indira Gandhi embodied them both. Much of this came from her time in Santiniketan, where her soul blossomed. Sitting at the feet of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore, she imbibed something of his worldview, the mingling of eastern and western values.”
Indira Gandhi’s daughter-in-law Sonia Gandhi said this during her address in Dhaka. The Congress President was in Dhaka to receive the “Bangladesh Freedom Honour” that Bangladesh has conferred on late Indira Gandhi for her contribution to the 1971 liberation war.
