About:

Sonia Gandhi is an Italian-born Indian politician who currently heads the Indian National Congress party. She belongs to the third generation of the Nehru-Gandhi family. She was born as Edvige Antonia Albina Maino in Italy on 9 December, 1946. Sonia Gandhi is the widow of former Prime Minister of India Rajiv Gandhi. She joined politics in 1997 amidst constant requests from Congress party members after the demise of her husband Rajiv Gandhi, who was assassinated in 1991.


Personal life:
Sonia is the widow of Rajiv Gandhi, elder son of Indira Gandhi. Sonia has two children, Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi.

In August 2011, she underwent a successful surgery for an unspecified ailment in the United States. It has been widely speculated in the media that the surgery took place at Memorial Sloan–Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Newspapers reported that she returned to India on 9 September after her treatment. Speaking on 18 July 2012, about her son taking a larger role in the party, she said that it is for Rahul to decide.

Sonia was listed as one of the fifty best-dressed over 50s by the Guardian in March 2013.She follows the style quote "Simple is Stylish" and looks no further than mother-in-law Indira Gandhi's "innate sense of fashion".

According to an affidavit filed during the Indian general election, 2014, Sonia had declared assets worth ₹ 92.8 million – ₹ 28.1 million in movable and ₹ 64.7 million in immovable properties. This is an almost six-fold increase since her declaration in the last election.
