Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s Speech at Indira Gandhi Prize for Peace, Disarmament & Development Ceremony

‘In memory of the bravest woman I have known. IndiraGandhi’

“In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.”

from Invictus, by William Ernest Henley
