Many might associate him with Bofors, Shah Bano, 1984, etc.

But he also pushed things in IT and telecom. The Cybercoolie cos moved from crawling to walking during his time (They started walking faster in 1991 and running in late 90s). His man Sam Pitroda started the concept of STD booths and CDot.

1994 - Sushmita Sen is crowned Miss Universe. this is not her only key date which aligns with 'The Family'. She shares her Birthday with Indira Gandhi.
Some FB friend was actually remembering Rajiv Gandhi today. Reminded me of this thread.
