Are we in the decade where we are going to witness the end of Gandhi-Nehru Dynasty? Is Rahul Gandhi going to be the last Gandhi? Yes it could be the end of a Dynasty . But the Gandhi name will always be there in the India, forever. Mahatma Gandhi The Father of Nation is immortal for us, whether he is alive or dead, his thoughts, his values and his work is in the blood of Nation. Yes there is mortality to physical body and it is going to die, but you can be immortal with your thoughts and work.
Jawaharlal Nehru was born on 14th November 1889, Mahatma Gandhi was born on 2nd October 1869 and if we forget their ancestors, these names have Social and Political presence in our nation for the last 150 years.
Is there a blood relation between Jawaharlal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi? No.. but the name Gandhi has given immense mileage to the political party named Congress even today. Are we Indians fools? The Nehru Gandhi Dynasty has nothing to do with Mahatma Gandhi family. The Gandhi surname came from Feroze Jahangir Gandhy, who changed the spelling of his surname after joining the freedom struggle. He was not related to Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Indira Priyadarshani Nehru (the daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru) married Feroze Gandhi in 1942 and adopted his surname. It might be political decision by visionary leader Jawaharlal Nehru to take the mileage of Gandhi and true to it sense Congress does it for more than 60 years.
In fact we have leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, first women prime minister of nation, Rajiv Gandhi, youngest prime minister of nation and now Rahul Gandhi from said Nehru Gandhi dynasty. But who is after Rahul Gandhi?
Rahul Gandhi was born on 19th June 1970 and in coming June he is turning 48. In 2013, he suggested that he may not get married. This means he is going to be the last Gandhi of Nehru Gandhi dynasty but why this decision when each and every leader of congress, took the mileage of name of Gandhi. Have Congress and its leaders accepted that this is the end of Nehru Gandhi dynasty and Congress?
This is true that if any leader considers him above organization and nation then nobody is going stop destruction of said organization and nation and true to it sense, its happening now. Perhaps this is going to be start of new era of congress. Congress has given leader like PV Narsimha Rao and Manmohan Singh who are not at all from Nehru Gandhi dynasty but worked under the influence of said dynasty. So what next for the oldest national political party of Nation?
I think the following are the skills required to be an honest politician
Should represent the people first and not the party.
Should fight for the common man issues all the time not just during elections.
Should respect every human being without any bias.
Must learn to see an issue from all perspectives.
We Indians as a nation should learn from it and not commit the same mistakes in future. Can we not see organization and nation above all and work for it only instead of working for ourselves.
Think before you Vote and consider our nation, above any other leader before choosing one, who is will WORK FOR NATION AND NOT FOR SELF.
Jai Hind, Jai Bharat.
