Indira Priyadarshani Gandhi had no relationship with Mahatma Gandhi. He was a family friend of Indira Gandhi who used to visit Indira Gandhi's father Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru. Born on November 19, 1917, Indira Gandhi was greatly inspired by her grand father Motilal Nehru who was a renowned lawyer.

Indira Gandhi got highly affected by the thoughts of Mahatma Gandhi. She visited Sabarmati Ashram where Mahatma Gandhi used to live and she got impressed by his simple life and the feelings of patriotism.
After she passed her Matric, she was sent to Shantiniketan founded by Rabindranath Tagore and later joined Oxford University Sommerville College but for some reasons she couldn't complete her graduation.

Indira Gandhi was not in a direct relationship with Mahatma Gandhi though both the personalities had their major roles in Indian politics. Because of his philosophy, he had been regarded as a saint though he objected to being called so. But the way he led his life signifies that he had saintly manners.
