Sonia Gandhi-- Rajiv Gandhi
It was a love affair that cut across nationalities—she from Italy, he from India. They met as students in England in 1964, fell in love and were married in 1969. For a long while they lived away from the public glare—he an airline pilot, she a housewife. When he joined politics, she was beside him—reluctantly. When he was assassinated, she stayed on to lay claim to the Nehru-Gandhi legacy.
