Rahul Gandhi-Against All Odds

Have you ever lost someone near & dear to you? If yes then this one article will feel particularly personal to you.

Born on the 19th of June 1970, Rahul Gandhi, the scion of the Nehru-Gandhi family, has been the biggest target of the daily campaigns by the notorious IT Cell of the Ruling Party since 2013.

Rahul, as well as his younger sister Priyanka, were extremely close to their Grandmother Indira Gandhi. The busy PM would take out some time whenever possible, to spend hours with her grandchildren, educating them about the country & life.

The Happy Family-Indira Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi & Rahul Gandhi

On 31st October 1984, Rahul, a 14-year-old boy, was informed that his grandmother, Indira Gandhi, the Prime Minister of India, had been assassinated, by her own Bodyguards. Rahul used to play badminton with these two Sikh Bodyguards as mentioned by him during an event. One can only imagine the kind of betrayal it must have felt like to the young teenager.

After 7 years of the tragedy, on 21 May 1991, Rahul’s father, Rajiv Gandhi, was assassinated at Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu. While ordinarily, even the loss of a single-family member is devastating, one can only imagine what the young Gandhi must have gone through after losing two.

After the two assassinations & extreme threat to his life, Rahul Gandhi was forced to take an alias name & shifted from Harvard to Rollins College in Florida, USA. Rahul Gandhi worked at the Monitor Group, a management consulting firm, in London for three years.

In 2004, Rahul Gandhi officially joined politics & contested the Lok Sabha Election from Amethi, his father, Rajiv Gandhi’s former constituency. He won hands down with a thumping 66.18% vote share, while his party Indian National Congress also dethroned the Vajpayee Government.

His mother, Sonia Gandhi, the President of the Party was expected to be the next Prime Minister. But due to the pettiness of BJP, unwilling to accept a lady who had dedicated her life & existence to the Nation, as the PM, Sonia Gandhi voluntarily refused to accept the position stating she never was interested in being the PM.

Rahul Gandhi, the Son, was the next person a majority of Congress Leaders demanded to see as the Prime Minister. But Rahul refused. Saying he would rather work on the ground & get to understand and resolve issues of the common Indian.

During the 10 years of UPA rule, he rejected the position of Prime Minister twice. Had he been interested in the position, there was no stopping. Rather he worked on various issues including Kashmir, which saw a record decline in Terrorist activities & violence, during UPA Rule.

On 11 May 2011, Rahul, the then VP of Congress reached the village of Bhatta Parsaul, Greater Noida, which was at the center of the protests against the Mayawati Government’s land acquisition bill. Irked by Mr.Gandhi’s indulgence in the matter & his outright support for the farmers, Mayawati Government arrested Rahul Gandhi, briefly taking him into “preventative custody”.

Since 2013, Gandhi has been subjected to unprecedented attacks, never seen in the History of Indian Politics, with the ruling party allegedly setting up a whole IT cell team, dedicated to editing Rahul’s videos, creating WhatsApp forwards on him or other social media memes. Despite all this & two massive blows, he refuses to give up

Rahul Gandhi today is the biggest nightmare of the ruling party. He says what he wants & when he wants. He has come into his own in the past few years and has decided to follow his own path instead of asking PR managers to run his life like the man currently in power who is also his competitor.

Rahul Gandhi is the absolute Anti of Narendra Modi & when India decides it is ready for his kind of politics, he will be ready.

    राहुल गांधी जी को अपनी हिंदी और भाषण शैली पर थोड़ा और ध्यान देना चाहिए, अंदाज ए बंया में सुधार की गुंजाइश है, व्यंगात्मक तंज कसना सिखना होगा !

    Brilliant Anjali.
    He’s the only leader to have fully understood the threat of fascism posed by the rss not only to the nation but to the world too. The world wouldn’t want to visit the horrors of another Nazi pogrom.

    Bang on.The kind of personal attacks on him for 7-8 years would have silenced strongest of a person.He has withstood the constant and non stop tirade and character assassination remarkably well.

  29. Vinod Lachwani Vinod Lachwani Wednesday, July 22, 2020

    I think you have been shy in writing about Rahul Gandhi. You have been extremely stingy on this write-up . Let me tell you,he is massive power house of strength and substance , I am surprised y my country younger generation is not able to see his strength , he is an qualified person , with having CPA as his father , black belt in judo , Medal holder in shooting with a level head n pateince , he is 3 times MP. I think India is doing great harm for itself , BJP is only scared of him this is y they created a special ITcell to ridicule him but as you know Truth Prevails always.

    This is the fact and reality. It is the generation transition period. it must be done smoothly. In MP and Rajasthan it is not done and result is in front of us. The ideology present leadership of India which is in Power is following Pakisthan and it must be pull down otherwise India will become Pakisthan. only Ideology of congress will save India.
    Rahul Gandhi has to concentration on Ideology only. lessen public statement. maintain consistency. avoid personal attack. attack on wrong policies of Govt.

  31. Pradeep Pradeep Thursday, July 23, 2020

    Well written and well covered. Congratulations on your very first attempt which itself is too very impressive. Looking forward to reading your next write-up on issues and concerns the country is being forced to face with, due to reasons best known to all of us.

    Accurate Analysis. If Modi-Shah Fear Today, It Is Rahul Gandhi. 2nd, BJP/RSS Goons And Godi Media Used All Filthy Words Against Him And His Mother, But He Never Retaliated In The Same Coin….May God Strengthen His Hands….

  33. Abdul Nazeerur Rahman Abdul Nazeerur Rahman Thursday, July 23, 2020

    A well-written article but no one cares, a death is just another event for Indians now as they have been exposed with so much terror it doesn’t affect them unless it hits their own home.

    Those who are opposed to the views of the present government are the real losers as they clearly know what they have been losing, a clean environment without hate is what India needs now to compete the world.

    It shouldn’t be too late until every Indian realizes the intentions of this government and how they are undermining the real Gandhis who lost so much but still stands for the truth.

  34. Chacko Chacko Thursday, July 23, 2020

    Rahulji is the only hope and aspiration of the people of India, selfless with unquestionable integrity and great visionary leader ever the nation has seen. Congress was always betrayed by their leaders and loyalist who exploited it for their selfish interests, for the short duration of the when Congress is out of power the economy has crumbled, defense is worse even to retaliate Chinese intrusion in multiple places, we are being isolated and our acceptability in global community is declining, our friendly neighbors have become the satellites of China. We are ruined.
