On October 31 1984 Indira Gandhi was shot and killed by her bodyguards ending one of the most controversial careers in modern Indian politics. Today Gandhi is remembered as the only woman to have served as Prime Minister. Less prominent is her role as the only Prime Minister to have suspended India s democratic process. On June 26 1975 she imposed a state of emergency on the country a 21-month period of exception in the world s largest democracy. Dissidents were jailed the press was heavily censored and the poor were subjected to violent developmentalist fantasies concocted by the political elite including mass demolition drives and resettlements. Most nightmarishly the Emergency featured a voluntary sterilization campaign which offered the urban poor money land and trinkets in exchange for their fertility.
