"Had Shastri (Lal Bahadur)lived another 5 or 10 years, it is
highly unlikely that Indira Gandhi would ever become PM
and it is certain that her son would never occupied that
office, Had Shastri been given another 5 years on earth,
there would have been no Nehru – Gandhi dynasty, Sanjay
Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi would almost certainly still be alive,
Sanjay Gandhi would be failed entrepreneur and Rajiv
Gandhi a recently retired airline pilot with a passion for
photography, Sonia Gandhi would still be a devoted and
loving house wife and Rahul a middle level manager in a
private sector co."

True.... India would have been saved...
