Y Women Sex Alchohol along with much else that attracted his attention off and onThe author reveals all with much candor and sincerity and says Before I started writing this book I suspended from my mind all personal loyalties of a conventional nature; only my obligation to history remainedMathai writes about Nehru's style Krishna Meno. GANDHI S FAMILY TREE WORTH SPENDING 15 MINUTES TO READ At the very beginning of his book The Nehru Dynasty astrologer K N Rao mentions the names of Jawahar Lal s father and grandfather Jawahar Lal s father was believed to be Moti Lal and Moti Lal s father was one Gangadhar Nehru And we all know that Jawahar Lal s only daughter was Indira Priyadarshini Nehru Kamala Nehru was her mother who died in Switzerland of tuberculosis She was totally against Indira s proposed marriage with Feroze Why No one tells us that Now who is this Feroze We are told by many he was the son of the family grocer The grocer supplied wines etc to Anand Bhavan preciously known as Ishrat Manzil which once belonged to a Muslim lawyer named Mobarak Ali Moti Lal was earlier an employee of Mobarak Ali What was the family grocer s name One freuently hears that Rajiv Gandhi s grandfather was Pandit Nehru But then we all know that everyone has two grandfathers the paternal and the material grandfather In fact the paternal grandfather is deemed to be the important grandfather in most societies Why is it then nowhere we find Rajiv Gandhi s paternal grandfather s name It appears that the reason is simply this Rajiv Gandhi s paternal grandfather was a Muslim gentleman from the Junagadh area of Gujrat This Muslim grocer by the name of Nawab Khan had married a Parsi woman after converting her to Islam This is the source where from the myth of Rajiv being a Parsi was derived Rajiv s father Feroze was Feroze Khan before he married Indira against Kamala Nehru s wishes Feroze mother s family name was Ghandy often associated with Parsis and this was changed to Gandhi sometime before his wedding with Indira by an affidavit The fact of the matter is that and this fact can be found in many writings Indira was very lonely Chased out of the Shantiniketan University by Guru Dev Rabindranath himself for misdemeanor the lonely girl was an by herself while father Jawahar was busy with polities pretty women and illicit sex the mother was in hospital Feroze Khan the grocer s son was then in England and he was uite sympathetic to Indira and soon enough she changed her religion became a Muslim women and married Feroze Khan in a London mosue Nehru was not happy Kamala was dead already or dying The news of this married eventually reached Mohandas Karan Chand Gandhi Gandhi urgently called Nehru and practically ordered him to ask the young man to change his name from Khan to Gandhi It had nothing to do with change of religion from Islam to Hindustan for instance It was just a case of a change of name by an affidavit And so Feroze Khan became Feroze Gandhi The surprising thing is that the apostle of truth the old man soon to be declared India s Mahatma and the Father of the Nation didn t mention this game of his in the famous book My Experiments with Truth Why When they returned to India a mock Vedic marriage was instituted for public consumption On the subject writes M O Mathai a longtime private secretary of Nehru in his renowned but now suppressed by the GOI Reminiscences of the Nehru Age on page no 94 second paragraph For some inexplicable reason Nehru allowed the marriage to be performed according to Vedic rited in 1942 An inter religious and inter caste marriage Vedic rites at that time was not valid in law To be legal it had to be a civil marriage It s a known fact that after Rajiv s birth Indira and Feroze lived separately but they were not divorced Feroze used to harass Nehru freuently for money and also interfere in Nehru s political activities Nehru got fed up and left instructions not to allow him into the Prime Minister s residence Trimurthi Bhavan Mathai writes that the death of Feroze came as a relief to Nehru and Indira The death of Feroze in 1960 before he could consolidate his own political force is itself a mystery Feroze had even planned to remarry Those who try to keep tabs on our lenders in spite of all the suppressions and deliberate misinformation are aware of the fact that the second son Indira or Mrs Feroze Khan known as Sanjay Gandhi was not the son of Feroze He was the son of another Moslem gentleman Mohammad Yunus Here in passing we might that the second son was originally named Sanjeev It rhymed with Rajiv the elder brother s name It was claimed to Sanjeev when he was arrested by the British police in England and his passport impounded for having stolen a car Krishna Menon was then India s High Commissioner in London He offered to issue another passport to the felon who changed his name to Sanjay Incidentally Sanjay s marriage with the Sikh girl Menaka now they call her Maneka for Indira Gandhi found the name of Lord Indra s court dancer rather offensivet took place uite surprisingly in Mohammad Yunus house in New Delhi And the marriage with Manaka who was a model She had modeled for Bombay Dyeing wearing just a towel was not so ordinary either Sanjay was notorious in getting unwed young women pregnant Menaka too was rendered pregnant by Sanjay It was then that her father Colonel Anand threatened Sanjay with dire conseuences if he did not marry her daughter And that did the trick Sanjay married Menaka It was widely reported in Delhi at the time that Mohammad Yunus was unhappy at the marriage of Sanjay with Menaka apparently he had wanted to get him married with a Muslim girl of his choice It was Mohammad Yunus who carried the most when Sanjay died in the plane accident In Yunus book Persons Passions Polities one discovers that baby Sanjay had been circumcised following Islamic custom although the reason stated was phimosis It was always believed that Sanjay used to blackmail Indira Gandhi and due to this she used to turn a blind eye when Sanjay Gandhi started to run the country as though if were his personal fiefdom Was he black mailing her with the secret of who his real father was When the news of Sanjay s death reaches Indira Gandhi the first thing she wanted to know was about the bunch of keys which Sanjay had with him Nehru was no less a player in producing bastards At least one case is very graphically described by M O Mathai in his Reminiscences of the Nehru Age page 206 Muthai writes In the antumn of 1948 India became free in 1947 and a great deal of work needed to be done a young woman from Benares arrived in New Delhi as a sanyasin named Shraddha Mata an assumed and not a real name She was a Sanskrit Scholar well versed in the ancient Indian scriptures and mythologyPeople including MPs thronged to her to hear her discourses Suddenly Shraddha Mata disappeared In November 1949 a convent in Bangalore sent a decent looking person to Delhi with a bundle of letters He said One day S D Upadhyaya Nehru s old employee brought a letter in Hindi from Shraddha Mata Nehru gave her an interview in the PM s House As her departed I noticed Mathai is speaking here that she was young shapely and beautiful Meetings with her became rather freuent mostly after Nehru finished his work at night During one of Nehru s visits to Lucknow Shraddha Mata turned up there and Upadhyaya brought a letter from her as usual Nehru sent her the reply and she visited Nehru at midnight that a young woman from northern India arrived at the convent a few months ago and gave birth to a baby boy She refused to divulge her name or give any particulars about herself She left the convent as soon as she was well enough to move out but left the child behind She however forgot to take with her a small cloth bundle in which among other things several letters in Hindi were found The Mother superior who was a foreigner had the letters examined and was told they were from the Prime Minister The person who brought the letters surrendered them I Mathai made discreet inuiries repeatedly about the boy but failed to get a clue about his whereabouts Convents in such matters are extremely tightlipped and secretive Had I succeeded in locating the boy I would have adopted him He must have grown up as a Catholic Christian blissfully ignorant of who his father was Coming back to Rajiv Gandhi we all know now that he changed his so called Paris religion to become a Catholic to marry Sania Maino of Turin Italy Rajiv become Roberto His daughter s name is Bianca and son s name is Raul uite cleverly the same names are presented to the people of India as Priyanka and Rahul What is amazing is the extent of our people s ignorance in such matters The press conference that Rajiv Gandhi gave in London after taking over as prime minister of India was very informative In this press conference Rajiv boasted that he was NOT a Hindu but a Paris Mind you speaking of the Paris religion he had no Paris ancestor at all His grandmother father s mother has turned Muslim after having abandoned the Paris religion to marry Nawab Khan It is the western press that waged a blitz of misinformation on behalf of Rajiv From the New York Times to the Los Angles Times and the Washington Post the big guns raised Rajiv to heaven The children s encyclopedias recorded that Rajiv was a ualified Mechanical Engineer from the revered University of Cambridge No doubt US kids are among the most misinformed in the world today The reality is that in all three years of his tenure at that University Rajiv had not passed a single examination He had therefore to leave Cambridge without a certificate Sonia too had the same benevolent treatment She was stated to be student in Cambridge Such a description is calculated to mis lead Indian She was a student in Cambridge all right but not of the University of Cambridge but of one of those fly by night language schools where foreign student come to leave English Sonia was working as an an pair girl in Cambridge and trying to learn English at the same time And surprise of surprises Rajiv was even cremated as per vedic rites in full view of India s public This is the Nehru dynasty that India worships and now an Italian leads a prestigious national party because of just one ualification being married into the Nehru family Maneka Gandhi itself is being accepted by the non Congress parties not because she was a former model or an animal lover but for her links to the Nehru family Saying that an Italian should not lead India will amount to narrow mindedness
