At the very beginning of his book, 'The Nehru Dynasty',
Astrologer K.N. Rao mentions the names of Jawaharlal's father and grandfather.
Jawaharlal's father was believed to be Motilal and Motilal's
father was one Gangadhar Nehru.
We all know that Jawaharlal'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 that
he was the son of the family grocer. The grocer supplied wines, etc..
to Anand Bhavan (previously known as Ishrat Manzil)
What was the family grocer's name?
One frequently hears that Rajiv Gandhi's grandfather was
Pandit Nehru. But then we all know that everyone has two grandfathers,
the paternal and the maternal grandfathers.
In fact, the paternal grandfather is deemed to be the
more 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. Rajiv
Gandhi's paternal grandfather was a Muslim gentleman from the Junagadh
area of Gujarat .
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's 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 misdemeanour, the lonely
girl was all by herself, while father Jawaharlal was busy with politics,
pretty women and illicit sex, the mother was in hospital.
Feroze Khan, the grocer's son was then in England and
he was quite sympathetic to Indira and soon enough she changed her religion,
became a Muslim woman and married Feroze Khan in a London mosque.
Nehru was not happy, Kamala was dead already or dying.
The news of this marriage eventually reached Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
(better known as Mahatma 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 Hinduism 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
When they returned to India , a mock 'Vedic marriage' was
instituted for public consumption.
On this subject, writes M.O. Mathai (a long-time Private
Secretary of Nehru) in his renowned (but now suppressed by the GOI! ) 'Reminiscences
of the Nehru Age' on page 94, second paragraph: ' For some inexplicable
reason, Nehru allowed the marriage to be performed according to Vedic rites
in 1942. An inter-religious and inter-caste marriage under Vedic
rites at that time was not valid in law. To be legal, it had to be a civil
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 frequently 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 forces, is itself a mystery. Feroze had even planned
Those who try to keep tabs on our leaders in spite of
all the suppressions and deliberate misinformation, are aware of the fact
that the second son of Indira (or Mrs .Feroze Khan) known as Sanjay Gandhi
was not the son of Feroze. He was the son of another Muslim gentleman,
Here in passing, we might mention that the second son
was originally named Sanjiv. It rhymed with Rajiv, the elder brother's
name. It was changed to Sanjay 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 mythological Lord Indra's Court dancer rather offensive !!) took place
quite surprisingly in Mohammad Yunus's house in New Delhi
The marriage with Menaka who was a model (She had model
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 consequences 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 cried the most
when Sanjay died in the plane accident.
In Yunus's book, 'Persons, Passions & Politics' 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
it were his personal freedom.. Was he black mailing her with
the secret of who his real father was? When the news of Sanjay's
death reached 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.
'In the autumn of 1948 a young woman from Benares arrived
in New Delhi as a sanyasini named Shraddha Mata (an assumed and not a real
name). She was a Sanskrit scholar well versed in the ancient Indian scriptures
and mythology. People, including MPs, thronged to her to hear her
discourses. 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 she departed, I noticed (Mathai is speaking here) that she was young,
shapely and beautiful. Meetings of Nehru with her became rather frequent,
mostly after he 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...' 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 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 inquiries repeatedly about the boy but failed to
get a clue about his whereabouts. Convents in such matters are extremely
tight-lipped 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 Parsi religion to become a Catholic to marry Sania Maino
of Turin , Italy . Rajiv became Roberto. His daughter's
name is Bianca and son's name is Raul. Quite 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 Parsi.
Mind you, speaking of the Parsi religion, he had no Parsi ancestor at all.
His grandmother (father's mother) had turned Muslim after having abandoned
the Parsi 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 Angeles Times and
the Washington Post, the big guns raised Rajiv to heaven. The children's
encyclopaedias recorded that Rajiv was a qualified 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 exam. He had therefore to leave Cambridge without a certificate.
Sonia too had the same benevolent treatment. She was stated
to be a student in Cambridge . Such a description is calculated to mislead
Indians. 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
students come to learn English. Sonia was working as an 'au 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
This is the Nehru dynasty that India worships and now
a foreigner leads a prestigious national party because of just one qualification
being married into the Nehru family. Maneka Gandhi, though Indian,
herself 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.
