However, u forgot to mention....

(d) Rajeev would just walk up to a municipal school kid amidst his busy schedule and talk w/. her for hours and jot down her notes on what she aspires 4 the education system.
(e) Rajeev would treat an ordinary citizen who walked up to him like other PM's treat visiting dignitaries.
(f) Rajeev was approachable. If he was on a procession and u flagged him and he saw this, he'd most probably give u his attention.

In my view, Rajeev ji was himself a good man who did his best to save India just as Mikhail GOrbachev did his best to save Communism in USSR from the massive damages caused during Brezhnavite era corruption.

But it's not Rajeev's fault if the entire political establishment around him was as clean as modern day Ganges river. When it came down to admin tho, I always felt Rajeev ji was being manupulated by veteran kingmakers in the political scene who were of course selfishly motivated, but not Rajeev himself.

Bofors scandal is not very important in Indian politics.But his performance in checking Anti Sikh Riots is condemnable.Andeson fleeing India with his support is yet to be confirmed.In other areas he was better .

Sorry I will always rate late Rajiv Gandhi on the basis of Computer Revolution. and I am having valid reason for it. secondly, I am sure you mightnot be knowing any technical aspects of the BOFORS Gun and similarly otherthan the Anderson probably dont want to see the VIBHISHAN'S of your own.
