What happened to the rulers of the famed Ikshvaku dynasty, to which Lord Sri Ram belong to? Before him, even Raja Harishchandra, who glorified the path of truth belong to the same dynasty, that is also called Surya Vamsa. What happened to the clan of Pandavas, who defeated the much larger Kuru clan at Kurukshetra to reclaim their kingdom, with the support of Lord Krishna? What happened to the clan of Alexander or Julius Caesar? Or to the descendants of Asoka or Shivaji?
Every dynasty, however renowned it is, would give birth to a person like Rahul Gandhi and then its downfall starts.
Against all characteristic norms and the spirit of democracy, Jawaharlal Nehru created dynastic rule in India, that was supposed to evolve as a democratic nation, after becoming independence. Like in good old days of monarchy, the marriage of Indira Priyadarshini to Feroze Gandhi created a much revered Nehru-Gandhi clan and rule by this clan was established in independent India.
One thing India and Nehru-Gandhi clan has in common is – diversity. This family is as diverse as India. From Kashmiri to Parsi to Punjabi to Italian to Christian, this family represents perhaps diversity in true spirit. So, it is expected they really have broad minds that consider diversity a noble virtue. However, the present flag bearers of the family, siblings Rahul and Priyanka proved to the world how fake the diversity displayed by the family really is. Perhaps, on this line only Nehru thought while dealing with Kashmir.
The strong man from Gujarat took it all by himself and tried to integrate India into what it is currently. Bhim Rao Ambedkar let everyone contest general elections, from any seat of their choice thereby making India, a single dominion. More than a millennium ago, Adi Sankara, chose non locals as priests for all four peethas. But, given their intelligence and attitude, expecting the current generation of Gandhis to know about history is much like expecting an ant to carry the weight of an elephant.
Together, they have declared Uttar Pradesh doesn’t need any adopted son, as they have too many. This comment was supposed to be a retort to Modi, who said he is an adopted son of Uttar Pradesh. Actually this comment exposed the Gandhi family from both sides, exposing the dark and murky history that Congress tries to hide under the white Khadi. First, if they feel they are the children of Uttar Pradesh, they failed miserably in changing the image of the state, despite winning elections from the constituencies in the state. Second, they failed to explain the logic behind how people from Uttar Pradesh can go and work in other states, but Modi cannot function in Uttar Pradesh, that too when he is trying to improve this situation.
The relation of Gandhis with Uttar Pradesh does really have a history and has very strong roots grouted by Motilal Nehru. Yet, under the rule of Congress, neither the much claimed ‘Social Justice’ nor the development took place. In the bad olden days when Congress ruled the state, it was much known for exporting ‘drivers’ to the then Bombay. Despite being in power for two consecutive terms, Congress could not materialise the ‘food park’ project announced by Rahul Gandhi. The cries of foul by Rahul Gandhi that Modi has snatched it from his constituency only shows, what he and his family really are: nothing but exploiters.
Well, if one considers Pappu is after all Pappu and he can’t improve the state of the state, adhering to the culture of Congress family, another live-in relationship with the Samajwadi Party was planned. The much touted foreign returned sons of Uttar Pradesh could not ensure that the state gets electricity in all places, even seventy years after independence.
Except few years of BJP and BSP rule, the state was ruled by Congress and Samajwadi Party. All the while, coal mined from the NCL mines in Uttar Pradesh is used to generate electricity in New Delhi, where the Gandhis stay all the time, except during elections. When own sons fail to discharge their duties, they don’t have any rights to prevent others in discharging the same.
Whenever either Shivsena or MNS attacked north Indians in Mumbai, Spoons of Congress used to claim the “oneness” of India and the rights of north Indians to work anywhere in India. When Robert Vadra can go on a land buying spree, abusing the powerful offices of Congress ministers, in all the states across India, does it mean that there were no real estate businessmen in Rajasthan and Haryana? After getting two of their family members killed, this family lives in the comforts of round the clock security and occupies many official bungalows. Perhaps, if the government stops maintaining these white elephants called Gandhi family, at least one region of Uttar Pradesh can be developed into an industrial hub like the ones in Gujarat or Tamilnadu.
The pretension of sincerity by Gandhi siblings is great. While the Sister comes out like world cup, every five years or so, the Brother visits the state much like monsoons, even with same irregularity.
If Priyanka Gandhi feels her brother is the son of Uttar Pradesh, he should have guts to take the responsibility on his shoulders and become the chief minister, after winning elections.
But, how can one expect parasites, who can’t grow on their own to support others? Can the brother win the elections on his own? Maybe not. Let him win the elections and become chief minister first. I’m sure he would never become one, giving up all his stress-relieving tours.
Whatever he is, Narendra Modi is definitely a better person who ruled his state for three consecutive terms. Somehow, I am not surprised at Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi wailing about Modi becoming the adopted son. They really behaved like offsprings who failed in taking care of their parents, but felt ashamed and opposed others taking care, just out of pure and plain guilt.
I wish the guilty feeling in the Gandhis would remain forever reminding them what they are supposed to do; and provoke them into a right direction and evolve them finally into what we call human beings. Or like I said earlier, here is the beginning of the end of Nehru-Gandhi clan. Though Robert Vadra and his son are too keen in taking it further by transforming it into Nehru-Gandhi-Vadra family, it is to be seen how far they can push it. Meanwhile, let sons be sons, own or adopted, whoever fulfill responsibilities of sons, would be so.
