I heard that Jawaharlal Nehru's grandfather was a cook in the Kashmiri Royal House....
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 !
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, 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 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 no where
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 Gujarat.
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.
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 misdeveanor, the
lonely girl was all by herself, while father Jawahar was busy with
politics, pretty women and illicit sex; the mother was in hospital.
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. 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
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 this 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
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
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 to remarry.
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 (Mrs. Feroze Khan) known as Sanjay
Gandhi was not the son of Feroze.
was the son of another Moslem gentleman, Mohammad Yunus. 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 (for Indira
Gandhi found the name of Lord Indra's court dancer rather offensive!)
took place quite surprisingly in Mohammad Yunus' house in New Delhi.
And the marriage with Menaka who was a model (she had modelled for
Bombay Dyeing wearing just a towel) was not so ordinary either.
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' 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 fiefdom. 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.
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. Mathai writes: "In the autumn 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
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! .
she departed, I noticed (Mathai is speaking here) that she was young,
shapely and beautiful. Meetings with her became rather frequent,
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...
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
(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."
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,
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.
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.
children's encyclopedias 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 examination. 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
is the Nehru dynasty that India worships and now an Italian leads a
prestigious national party because of just one qualification –
being married into the Nehru family. !
