In his welcome remarks, Mr. Gadzhi M.

He said that Indira Gandhi made India a power to reckon with before the eyes of the world and Russian-Indian relations a role-model for other countries to emulate.

Mr. Mahabal Misra, M.P. made an overall review of how the erstwhile Soviet Union generously helped and supported India in times of difficulties. He pointed out that Indo-Russian relations flourished during the times of Indira Gandhi.

Mr. Ramesh Dutta, former Deputy Mayor of Delhi and Head of Nehru Brigade, recalled the nostalgic memories of the Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi eras when the people in the villages, the poor and downtrodden received maximum heed from the government and leaders.

Dr. A.K. Gupta, Member of India-Russia Friendship Society, made an impressive observation on how seriously Indira Gandhi approached the imperative issue of Indo-Soviet relations to the larger and interest of the people and nation in a broader perspective.
