India Pakistan (1980)

India Pakistan (1980) Dry Bones cartoon - .
Indira Gandhi had been prime minister of India from 1966 to 1977.
In 1980, when I did today's Golden Oldie, Indira had just been returned to office.

Mrs. Gandhi's words, which are quoted in the first three panels of the cartoon, seem more true today than when she spoke them. As does my explanation (in the last three panels of the cartoon).

In 1984, four years after returning to office, Mrs. Gandhi was assassinated.
