Politics has never been an easy game - especially for women in India. In Maneka Gandhi's case, coming from the former Prime Minister and Indian National Congress head Indira Gandhi's household should have been an advantage. But Maneka - who became Indira's daughter-in-law at the age of 18 - was the "odd one out." After her husband Sanjay Gandhi's death, Maneka broke her ties with the Gandhi family, keeping her marital surname, and went on to join what was to become the Congress party's largest opposition - the Bharatiya Janata Party. Over 30 years since then, Maneka has made her impact felt in India's social and political scenes. As Maneka Gandhi turns 64 today, find out more about the multifaceted leader here.
