Who was Indira Gandhi?

Indira Priyadarshini Gandhi (Hindi: इंदिरा प्रियदर्शिनी गांधी) (19 November 1917 - October 31, 1984) She was the Prime Minister of India for three consecutive terms from 1966 to 1977 and for a fourth term from 1980 until her assassination in 1984. She was India's first and to date only female prime minister.

She is noted for declaring Emergency after a court struck down her election in 1975, and also for her handling of the Operation Blue Star against Sikh militants, which eventually resulted in her assassination.

Born in the politically influential Nehru dynasty, she grew up in an intensely political atmosphere. Her grandfather Motilal Nehru was a prominent Indian nationalist leader. Returning to India from Oxford in 1941, she became involved in the Indian Independence movement.

In the 1950s, she served her father unofficially as a personal assistant during his tenure as India's first Prime Minister. After her father's death in 1964, she was appointed as a member of the Rajya Sabha by the President of India and became a member of Lal Bahadur Shastri's cabinet as Minister of Information and Broadcasting[1].

Chosen to become Prime Minister by Congress Party insiders after Shastri's death, Gandhi soon showed an ability to win elections and outmanoeuvre opponents through populism. She introduced more left-wing economic policies and promoted agricultural productivity. A crushing victory in the 1971 war with Pakistan was followed by a period of instability that led her to impose a state of Emergency in 1975; she paid for the authoritarian excesses of the period with three years in opposition.

Returned to office in 1980, she became increasingly involved in an escalating conflict with separatists in Punjab that eventually led to her assassination by her own bodyguards in 1984.

Who killed Indira Gandhi and why?

Due to Operation Blue Star, the sikh community was really angry on Indira Gandhi as she invaded the Golden Temple (Most religious place for sikh community) with Tanks and Guns. Her sikh bodyguards Beant Singh and Satwant Singh visited Golden Temple after the operation blue star and they could not hold their anger after seeing what happned there. Indira Gandhi was responsible for this because she lead the army to the golden temple(a religious shrine to Sikhs) to kill Bhindranwala (a influential Sikh leader who wanted equal rights for them in India). But because the government choose to attack the temple on a religious day, more than 1,000 innocent people died as it was full of devotees. This attack caused an outrage in the Sikh community. Beant Sikh, Satwant Singh and Kehar Singh took the initiative and decided to take revenge from Indira Gandhi. This was quite similar to what Udham Singh did to take the revenge for Jalianwala Bagh or what Bhagat Singh did to take the revenge of the death of Lala Lajpat Rai.

On October 31, 1984 Beant Singh drew a .38 revolver and fired three shots into her abdomen. As she fell to the ground, Satwant Singh pumped all 30 rounds from his Sten automatic weapon into her crumpled body. At least seven bullets penetrated her abdomen, three her chest and one her heart. The Prime Minister was dead. The two Sikhs then calmly dropped their guns. As other security guards seized them, Beant Singh said 'I've done what I had to do. You do what you want to do.' Beant Singh then was killed by gunfire while Satwant Singh was arrested and later sentenced to death.

Does the m1 carbine and the m2 carbine fire the same round?

Yes, they fire the same .30 Carbine cartridge, the M1 was to be capable of selective fire control, but this was dropped. Because a demand arose for an automatic capability, the M2was developed, with a selective-fire switch added to the left side of the receiver, operating on the sear mechanism.

Because a demand arose for an automatic capability, the M2 was developed, with a selective-fire switch added to the left side of the receiver, operating on the sear mechanism. With its 30 round magazine and rapid fire, it was an effective counter to the various submachine guns used by the Communists in the Korean War and had greater stopping power.

The US Carbine, Caliber .30in, M3, or T3, was simply an M2 with suitable mountings prepared on the receiver to take various models of infra-red night-sighting devices. No open or conventional sights were provided, and the IR carbine mounted an M3 flash hider, a simpler design than that for the M1C Garand.

All three versions of the .30 carbine (M1, M2, M3) fire the same round, which was uniquely designed for that family of weapons. The .30 carbine round is less powerful (110 grains vs. 174 grains) and has less range (300 vs. 600) and recoil than a the standard .30-06 rifle round used in the larger and heavier Garand rifle. The bullet is also round-nosed rather than pointed. The carbine and its cartridge was intended to fill a perceived gap between a pistol and a full-sized rifle for use by rear-echelon support troops.

Full speech of Indira Gandhi that she had delivered just before her assassination?

I am here today, I may not be here tomorrow. But the responsibility to look after national interest is on the shoulder of every citizen of India. I have often mentioned this earlier. Nobody knows how many attempts have been made to shoot me, lathis have been used to beat me. In Bhubaneswar itself, a brickbat hit me. They have attacked me in every possible manner. I do not care whether I live or die. I have lived a long life and I am proud that I spend the whole of my life in the service of my people. I am only proud of this and nothing else. I shall continue to serve until my last breath and when I die, I can say, that every drop of my blood will invigorate India and strengthen it.

Was Gandhi a male?

This is a very common name in India, not unlike the name Smith among English speakers.

Many people in western cultures think only of the Mahatma (a title meaning Great Soul) when they hear the name. Mahatma Gandhi's name was Mohandas, and he was of course a male. Indira, who was, I believe, not related to the Mahatma, was a female. She was the first and only female Prime Minister of India.

Why did Gandhi die?

On January 30th, 1948, he was walking slowly from his home to attend a prayer meeting when a thirty-nine years old Hindu called Nathuram Godse who mistakably thought Gandhi was harming the Hindus by being friendly to Muslims shot the Great Soul after respectfully bowing to him. (Click on picture for video) A few minutes later a man came out to the waiting crowd and announced that the little old man who sacrificed with all he had for his country, who reshaped the lives of many, who changed the path of the world, who inspired -and still will inspire- mankind till the end of the world was dead.
