In style and substance, Congress President Sonia Gandhi is fast fashioning herself after her late mother-in-law, Indira Gandhi.

But electioneering, like genius, is often 10 percent inspiration and 90 percent perspiration.

Sonia Gandhi has certainly got the inspiration, but does she have the necessary stamina, the mental and physical reserve, to take on the Bharatiya Janata Party's political machinery?


So far, she has not shown herself to be lacking in either gumption or the prowess to carry the battle into the enemy's camp.


Clocking over 20,000 kilometers till the first week of March, she has kept pace with her political opponents.


Her road shows may not draw the same media attention as, say, the prime minister's or the deputy prime minister's -- the price of being out of government, perhaps -- but the public has been turning up in droves to see her, and listen to her message. And, who knows, may even prove the pollsters wrong on voting day.


As Sonia Gandhi criss-crosses the country, do you have a message -- of issues she needs to raise on the campaign trail, of hope, expectation, or even criticism -- for her?


Tell us, and's correspondents will have them delivered to 10 Janpath.
