You have to hand it to the lady

Indira Gandhi might have done a lot of bad things in her time, but you have to give credit where it's due. Today's Hindu has a story on the events leading up to the creation of Bangladesh that tells of the way she stood up to the bullying from Nixon and Kissinger. I seriously doubt whether any of the current crop of leaders would have the cojones to do what she did.
