राहुल गांधी का महात्मा कनेक्शन


राहुल गांधी का महात्मा कनेक्शन

राहुल गांधी ने कहीं सुना था एक महात्मा गांधी भी इस देश में हुए  हैं .गुजरात जाने पर उन्हें पता चला वह तो

 गुजरात में ही पैदा हुए थे .उनके किसी राजनीतिक पंडित ने उनका जनम पत्रा देखके फट बतलाया बबुआ

आप तो उन्हीं के वारिस हैं .अब राहुल बाबा ने यह तो बतलाया नहीं था की वह कौन से गांधी की बात कर रहें हैं

.दिल्ली में वह नौ साल से सक्रीय राजनीति में है इससे पहले उन्होंने ने कभी भी महात्मा गांधी का शिष्य होने

की बात नहीं की थी .गुजरात में जाकर ही उन्हें यह बोधिसत्व प्राप्त हुआ था .

जहां तक हमारी जानकारी है राहुल बाबा के दादा जो पारसी थे .उनकी दादी इंदिरा जी उनसे प्रेम करतीं थीं .पंडित

 नेहरूजी इस शादी के खिलाफ थे तब महात्मा गांधी (जिनका पूरा नाम राहुल बाबा को मालूम नहीं होगा

)उन्होंने यह कहते हुए दवाब बनाया फ़िरोज  मेरा पुत्र है उसे अपना वैश्य गोत्र गांधी दिया ,और इंदिरा जी की

शादी फ़िरोज  जी से कराई जो फ़िरोज़ गांधी हो गए .यह है उनका गांधी कनेक्शन है लेकिन तब मामला शादी

का था .और मोहन दास कर्म चंद गांधी का गोत्र फ़िरोज जी ने अपना लिया .

क्या अभी भी मामला शादी का  ही है यदि ऐसा ही है तो यह हिन्दुस्तान के लिए ख़ुशी की बात है आप शादी करें

वंशवेळ  को फिरोज गांधी जी की आगे बढ़ाएं .

 .हम भी बहुत खुश होंगें हमारा ब्लॉग जगत भी आपको आशीष देने गुजरात आजायेगा .

जो अज्ञात कुलशील होतें हैं जिन्हें अपने पुरखों का पता नहीं होता उन्हें कोई पास भी नहीं बिठाता है .

कई लोग है जो कलम कोशिका से पैदा हैं .

राहुल जी को किस हरिद्वार या बनारस के पण्डे ने बहका दिया की वह गांधी हैं इनके दादा का नाम फ़िरोज़ खान

और पड़दादा का नाम नवाब खान था जो एक स्वतंत्रता सेनानी थे .पंडित नेहरु के साथ उन्होंने काम किया था

फ़िरोज़ खान नेहरु परिवार के दोस्त थे .और माननीय राहुल बाबा महात्मा गाँधी का नाम मोहन दास करम चंद

 गांधी था ,


He was Feroze Khan - read the Nehru family history -
Indira Gandhi, daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru, became prime minister of India in 1966. Mrs. Gandhi was born on November 19, 1917 to Jawaharlal and Kamala Nehru. She was named Indira Priyadarshini Nehru. She fell in love and decided to marry Feroze Khan, a family friend. Feroze Khan’s father, Nawab Khan, was a Muslim, and mother was a Persian Muslim. Jawaharlal Nehru did not approve of the inter-caste marriage for political reasons
(see http://www.asiasource.org/ society/indiragandhi.cfm). If Indira Nehru were to marry a Muslim she would loose the possibility of becoming the heir to the future Nehru dynasty. At this juncture, according to one story, Mahatma Gandhi intervened and adopted Feroze Khan, gave him his last name (family name/caste name) and got the name of Feroz Khan changed to Feroz Gandhi by an affidavit in England . Thus, Feroze Khan became Feroze Gandhi.

ALLAHABAD, February 9: Feroze Gandhi's grave is just a few kilometres from Anand Bhawan, the original seat of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty. Dozens of tourists come daily to get a glimpse of the carefully preserved bedrooms and belongings of Pandit Nehru and Indira Gandhi at Anand Bhawan, Moti Lal Nehru's gracious mansion with its well manicured lawns. A book store offers a selection of pamphlets, comics and biographies on India's premiere political family.
But no one comes to place flowers at the neglected tombstone of the man who gave the Gandhis their surname. Some of Feroze's progeny have never visited the cemetery where Indira Gandhi's Parsi husband has his ashes interred. In fact long time residents of Allahabad are unaware of the grave site.
Feroze's tombstone is in one corner of Allahabad's Parsi cemetery, which has clearly seen better days. The garden has gone to seed, the weeds have got the better of the grass, the flower beds are empty and the soil cracked and parched. The cemetery's boundary wallis crumbling and pavement squatters are merrily drying cowdung cakes on the outer side. The gardener in charge says that the only member of Indira Gandhi's family whom he recalls ever visiting the grave is Maneka Gandhi who came once many years back.
According to Parsi custom bodies are either eaten by the vultures in places where there are dakmoos (towers of silence) or else buried. But in Feroze Gandhi's case it seems some members of his family placed his ashes in the grave evoking protest from orthodox Parsies, since Parsi bodies are not cremated.
Rustom Gandhi -- Feroze's eldest brother Fardiun's son -- is the only member of Feroze's family still living in Allahabad. He is philosophical about his uncle's neglected grave, pointing out that the Parsi Anjuman society in Allahabad tries it's best to maintain the cemetery, which he feels is in better condition than graveyards in many small towns..
There are only some 30 Parsies left in Allahabad. Families like the Gazdars and Shapurjees are extinct,others have migrated because the younger generation found employment opportunities elsewhere.. The old gardener who used to tend the cemetery is dead; his son looks after the grounds perfunctorily.
If the graveyard looks neglected it is not so much because of lack of funds, but because the local authorities have been indifferent to several letters of complaint from the Parsi community that the neighbouring junk dealers jump over the wall and have been attempting to grab the land. Nobody prevents the walls being used for spreading cow dung.
``We are such a small community that no political party bothers about us and considers us a vote bank, '' Rustom says ruefully. He points out that Mulayam Singh Yadav, the former Chief Minister, had the huge old Christian cemetery fenced in at considerable government expense because the community has a substantial number of votes. But Allahabad's Parsies keep raising the height of the cemetery wall on their own to keep intruders out.
Does Indira Gandhi's family keepin touch with their Parsi relatives? ``We meet to the extent possible which is not very frequently. Mostly at weddings. Last February we met the family at Priyanka's wedding,'' Rustom says. ``Allahabad is not a town you normally come to except on a special occasion,'' he points out even if it was once the ancestral home of the Gandhis and a political hub of the Congress in pre-independence India.
Indira Gandhi used to come more frequently to Allahabad and when she did she made it a point to invite her Parsi relatives to Swaraj Bhawan for a cup of tea. Rajiv's visits to Allahabad were, however, few and far between. He came each time carrying ashes to scatter in the Sangam; first of his grandfather, then his mother and his brother.
``It may be out of sight out of mind but when we do meet it is with great cordiality,'' says Rustom, a businessman whose son is presently studying dentistry in Lucknow. Rustom goes to Delhi frequently on business trips but he does not call at 10, Janpath since he realises theyhave busy schedules.
``But when Rajiv was a pilot he was free all the time and it was no problem to drop in whenever you felt like and listen to music with him.'' Rustom like most of the family is surprised at Sonia's entry into politics. ``She never revealed any interest in politics to us. I would have thought that no way would she go into politics.'' Rustom himself is apolitical and his family is proud it never asked any favours of the Gandhis, though when people come to know of the connection they badger him with requests.
