——————————————————————————————————————————————-

Coming to Vijaya Lakshmi, she was a former President of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) and stayed at NYC during her UNGA term of office.

She  was an Indian diplomat and politician who was elected as the first female president of the United Nations General Assembly.

Hailing from a prominent political family, her brother Jawaharlal Nehru was the first Prime Minister of independent India, her niece Indira Gandhi the first female Prime Minister of India and her grand-nephew Rajiv Gandhi was the sixth Prime Minister of India.

Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit was sent to London as India’s most important diplomat after serving as Nehru’s envoy to the Soviet Union, the United States and the United Nations. Her time in London offers insights into the wider context of changes in Indo–British relations. Her High-Commissionership was a microcosm of inter-governmental relations.
