Gandhinagar: In 2009, when both the BJP and the Congress were locked in a political battle for the Gandhinagar Lok Sabha seat, an independent candidate came-up with her own idea of contesting the elections. Mallika Sarabhai became the face of media glare when she decided to beg to contest in elections.

Sarabhai announced her candidature against the Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate L K Advani for the Gandhinagar Lok Sabha seat, as an independent candidate. She launched her campaign as a Satyagraha against the politics of hatred. However, she lost to L K Advani by a huge margin, forfeiting her deposit.
