31 OCT 84 - RE-VISITED AFTER 25 YEARS.
The STN ADJT informed us that the PRIME MINISTER SMT INDIRA GANDHI was shot dead by her body guards in the morning in Delhi.. Immensely SHOCKED and DEEPLY HURT we FELL SILENT. A GREAT VISIONARY AND TALL LEADER HAD LOST HER LIFE.
The detailed instructions were given to be extra vigilant and to face the unusual situationin the Camp area and in HYDERABAD. All HELL broke loose in the city and the camp area was restless. The news pouring in from the city, on the aftermath were simply disturbing.
There were prisoners in the cell and one of them was in tantrums and was continuously attracting our attention. Each minute was passing dead slow. The telephones were constantly ringing. Queries, Answers. Yes Sirs, Right Sirs, Okay Sirs, No Sirs, Will do Sirs were many.
Somehow, the day passed off with great pain, difficulty and disturbance..
But the next day was more exacting and problematic. Reports, on this and that. Endless Personal meetings and explanations went on upto 1300 hrs. In the meanwhile nothing was known about me to my family. My wife came in search of me at 1230 hrs. And then went home and slept till next day.
MY WIFE AND I CANNOT EVER FORGET THIS SAD DAY, FOR THE LOSS OF OUR BELOVED SMT INDIRA GANDHI, (LATE)PRIME MINISTER.
