RAAJ SIRF RAAJA HI KAR SAKTA HAI(Only a king knows how to rule)

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi---Mahatma Gandhi---was the real hero who fought for us,for India for our freedom. He is the one who sacrificed his life for the nation.No one from his family-his children-his grand children-has ever claimed any position of power,directly or indirectly,in exchange for the sacrifice for the country.No one from his family came into politics just because the head of their family had sacrificed his life for the country.

Subhash Chandra Bose, was a true son of India, a dedicated freedom fighter and a soldier.His sacrifice for the freedom of the country has never been questionable.For reasons whatever,details of his alleged death have remained a mystery.There was a theory that he did not actually die in the air crash.His only daughter-Anita Bose Pfaff--has never claimed publicity, power or political space in Indian politics just because her father had made sacrifices for the country.

Sardar Vallabhai Patel was the iron man of India.If one goes by history books,had Nehru listened to him, J&K would have had a different scene.Sardar Patel's next of kin have been leading a quiet retired life away from political climate.None of his children,grand children have claimed political power, political space or even publicity.They have never complained on occasions when Sardar's birth or death anniversary has been forgotten by those holding power.
Lal Bahadur Shastri’s short tenure has been one of pride for all Indians.His children,though in politics, haven’t been fighting for position.

Nehru-Gandhis have been on the Indian political scene since independence and have been in power on their own for almost45 yrs,besides having led a coalition Govt for almost 7 yrs.

Historicaly,Nehru - Gandhis at different stages have suffered humiliation.
First, when Nehru miscalculated his friendship with Chinese resulting into a miserable defeat for India in'62.He was a sensitive person and it is common knowledge as to how he took his decision and defeat to heart.Consequences were there to see.
Second, When Indira Gandhi declared internal emergency in the country subsequent to Allahabad High court judgment unseating her.Consequences were there to see.

Third, When Rajeev Gandhi got caught into alleged Bofors corruption scandal. Consequences were there to see.

Dr Man Mohan Singh is the officially appointed PM of the country.Without getting into futile discussion, it is common knowledge that it is Sonia Gandhi and to some extent Rahul Gandhi who controls policy making and purse strings.It is obvious as who are congress members loyal to.
In the recent past, there have been allegations against congress on corruption, lack of governance, minority appeasement, regionalism, misuse of Govt machinery etc. Law will take its own course is a line no sane person buys any more.
Perhaps, it is time for congress to step aside for some time,get its act,organization together,let alleged charges of corruption be settled and come back to the national scene with full majority rather than come to power on clutches of opportunistic coalition partners.(Indira Gandhi waited till ’80)

It won't only benefit congress, it will benefit nation at large.

But, it is eventually up to Congress party to decide

absolutely agree, BKC Sir. But, do you think those used to power will give it up so easily? I read somewhere that Sonia is desperate that Rahul should become PM once so that their family can continue to enjoy the privileges of an ex-CM even in the days to come.

They would never give up.
Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely

I liked the way you listed the leaders whose family didn't claim fame or name or true, Chowlaji.

If Vallabh bhai Patel had become the PM and lived longer, our country would have gone sky high in every aspect.

Sonia doesn't want anybody else to control their trust money. She will do her best to bring in Rahul. Nobody is there to stop it. No true leader is visible in the vicinity. Bajpai was the only leader for BJP. He is not active anymore. We have to put up with the Congress for another 50 years at least.

Nice article. But in my opinion, Congress would also break into many parts if Gandhi-Nehru clan seize to exist in the party. BJP is governed by RSS, which has a very strong foundation. But the very existence of Congress is because of this dynasty. None of the political party save the left is governed by an ideology; each one is governed by dynastic politics.
I was one day thinking that we all know that Rahul is the next Prime ministerial candidate of congress, who would inherit the throne after him. He is still unmarried & thus no children(his is already 40 yrs old). It leaves with only one option that Priyanka's children could be the next successor.
Whatever happens the baton must pass from one generation to another, or the party is full of opportunists. You try & find one, you would get 100.
