|New Delhi: Is Rahul Gandhi Set to Marry a Foreign Woman?|

New Delhi: Described as the Prince Charming and the future prime minister of India, whatever Rahul Gandhi, the 43-year-old AICC general secretary does, has to hit the headlines.
Media and political circles are agog with rumours that Rahul is 'involved' with Noella, the granddaughter of Zahir Shah, former ruler of Afghanistan. Among the media, the first to flash the news was The Sunday Guardian, edited by M J Akbar, which was immediately picked by newspapers from elsewhere, including a few southeast Asian tabloids.
The Sunday Guardian said: "The two (Rahul and the Afghan princess) have reportedly been seen together in the Aman Hotel in Delhi, which is known to be a regular haunt of the future PM, who spends hours there in the Fitness Centre, trying to develop biceps that can challenge those of Shah Rukh Khan and Robert Vadra.
"The young lady from the Afghan royal family is known to be very well brought up, with a gentle mien and a generous nature. Hence, Rahul’s buddies hope that, this time around the future PM will not walk away from a lady friend (as he has on numerous occasions in the past), but will follow the example of Papa Rajiv([Gandhi) when he married Mama Sonia in 1965."
The weekly went on: "The personable lady could emerge as a key asset for Rahul Gandhi as he seeks to win a fresh mandate for his battered party in 2014. She has undeniable appeal to the upwardly mobile youth vote."
The princess’s grandfather Zahir Shah had reigned for four decades from 1933 until he was dethroned in a coup in 1973 by his own cousin Mohammed Daud Khan. The king abdicated and went to Italy to live in exile. He returned to Kabul in 2002, and was given the title of Father of the Nation. He passed away in 2007 at the age of 93.
Rajiv at 40 had married Sonia Maino, daughter of an Italian builder from Turin and had two children, Rahul and Priyanka . The record of interfaith and intercaste marriages could be a family trait. Rahul's grandmother Indira Priyadarshini Nehru has married a Parsi from Allahabad, Feroze Gandhi. Sanjay married Maneka, a Sikh, and a socialite modelling for Bombay Dyeing. Two years ago, she announced the marriage of her son Varun with graphic designer Inca Yamini Roy.
Rahul was seen in the company of Veronica, an architect, Spanish by birth but who grew up in Venezuela, since 2004. They were spotted together at cricket matches and holiday spots in Kerala. She was rumoured to have been asked to bow out to avoid another controversy over a foreign wife coming into the Nehru-Gandhi family.
The current Aghan friend is a jewellery designer, whose mother is also an Italian. The rumour-mills are working overtime. She is said to have taken up Roman Catholic religion and informed sources said that the Rahul and she often pray together in the home chapel of his mother Sonia's residence.

|THINK ABOUT YOURSELF.|
You WENT to Harvard on Donation Quota. ( Hindujas Gave HARVARD 11 million dollars the same year, when Rajiv Gandhi was in Power)
Then you are expelled in 3 Months/ You Dropped out in 3 Months.... ( Sadly Manmohan Singh wasn't the Dean of Harvard that time, else you might have had a chance... Too Bad, there is only one Manmohan Singh!)
Some Accounts say, You had to Drop out because of Rajiv Gandhi's Assassination.
May be, But Then Why did you go about lying about being Masters in Economics from Harvard .. before finally taking it off your Resume upon questioning by
At St. Stephens.. You Fail the Hindi Exam.
And you are representing the Biggest Hindi Speaking State of the Country?
SONIA GANDHI's EDUCATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS
Sonia G gave a sworn affidavit as a Candidate that She Studied English at University of Cambridge
According to Cambridge University, there is no such Student EVER! ,
Upon a Case by Dr. Subramaniyam Swami filed against her,
She subsequently dropped the CAMBRIDGE CREDENTIAL from her Affidavit.
Sonia Gandhi didn't even pass High School. She is just 5th class Pass!
In this sense, She shares a common Educational Background with her 2G Partner in Crime, Karunanidhi.
You Fake your Educational Degree, Your Mother Fakes her Educational Degree.
And then you go out saying, " We want Educated Youth into Politics!
Contrast that with Gandhi Ji , who went to South Africa, Became a Barrister, on Merit, Left all that to work for South Africa, then for the Country....
WHY LIE ABOUT EDUCATIONAL CREDENTIALS?
Not that Education is a Prerequisite for being a great Leader, but then you shouldn't have lied about your qualifications!
You could feel a little ashamed about Lying about your Educational Qualifications. You had your reasons I know, Because in India, WE RESPECT EDUCATION!
But who cares about Education, When you are a Youth Icon!!
You traveled in the Local Train for the first time at the Age of 38.
You went to some Villages as a part of Election Campaign.
And You won a Youth Icon!! ... That's why You are my Youth Icon.
For 25 Million People travel by Train Everyday. You are the First Person to win a Youth Icon for boarding a Train.
Thousands of Postmen go to remotest of Villages. None of them have yet gotten a Youth Icon.
You were neither YOUNG Nor ICONIC!
Still You became a Youth Icon beating Iconic and Younger Contenders like RAHUL DRAVID.
Shakespeare said, What's in a Name?
Little did he knew, It's all in the Name, Especially the Surname!
Speaking of Surname, Sir
DO YOU REALLY RESPECT GANDHI, OR IS IT JUST TO CASH IN ON THE GOODWILL OF MAHATMA ?
Both you and Priyanka were born Italian citizens because Sonia was Italian when she gave birth to you.[Italian law based on jure sanguinis].
Hence, you continue be Italians since you have never renounced upon citizenship upon becoming 21 years old. Both, You and Priyanaka have been traveling abroad on Italian passports.
It's no surprise that the Name on your Passport (ITALIAN) is RAUL VINCI.
Not RAHUL GANDHI..
May be if you wrote your Surname as Gandhi, you would have experienced, what Gandhi feels like, LITERALLY ( Pun Intended)
You People don't seem to use Gandhi much, except when you are fighting Elections. ( There it makes complete sense).
Imagine fighting elections by the Name Raul Vinci...
It feels sadly Ironic, Gandhi Ji, who inspired Icons like Nelson Mandela ,Martin Luther King Jr. and John Lennon, across the world, Couldn't inspire members of his party/ Nehru's Family, who only seem to use his Surname for the purposes of FIGHTING ELECTIONS and conveniently use a different name on their PASSPORT.
You could feel ashamed for your Double Standards.
YOUTH INTO POLITICS.
Now You want Youth to Join Politics.
I say First you Join Politics.
Because you haven't Joined Politics. You have Joined a Family Business.
First you Join Politics. Win an Election fighting as RAUL VINCI and Not Rahul Gandhi, then come and ask the youth and the Educated Brass for more involvement in Politics.
Also till then, Please don't give me examples of Sachin Pilot and Milind Deora and Naveen Jindal as youth who have joined Politics..
They are not Politicians. They Just happen to be Politicians.
Much Like Abhishek Bachchan and other Star Sons are not Actors. They just happen to be Actors (For Obvious Reasons)
So, We would appreciate if you stop requesting the Youth to Join Politics till you establish your credentials...
WHY WE CAN'T JOIN POLITICS!
Rahul Baba, Please understand, Your Father had a lot of money in your Family account ( in Swiss Bank) when he died.
Ordinary Youth has to WORK FOR A LIVING.
YOUR FAMILY just needs to NETWORK FOR A LIVING
If our Father had left thousands of Crores with us, We might consider doing the same..
But we have to Work. Not just for ourselves. But also for you. So that we can pay 30% of our Income to the Govt. which can then be channelized to the Swiss Banks and your Personal Accounts under some Pseudo Names.
So Rahul, Please don't mind If the Youth doesn't Join Politics. We are doing our best to fund your Election Campaigns and your Chopper Trips to the Villages.
Somebody has to Earn the Money that Politicians Feed On.
NO WONDER YOU ARE NOT GANDHI'S. YOU ARE SO CALLED GANDHI'S!!
Air India, KG Gas Division, 2G, CWG, SWISS BANK Account Details... Hasan Ali, KGB.
Then Sonia Gandhi proclaimed ‘zero tolerance’ to corruption at a party rally in Allahabad in November 2010. WHAT A HYPOCRITE!
You want to feel ashamed..
Feel Ashamed for what the First Family of Politics has been reduced to...
A Money Laundering Enterprise.
NO WONDER YOU ARE NOT GANDHI'S BY BLOOD. GANDHI is an adopted Name. For Indira didn't marry Mahatma Gandhi's Son.
For even if you had one GENE OF GANDHI JI in your DNA. YOU WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN PLAGUED BY SUCH 'POVERTY OF AMBITION' ( Ambition of only EARNING MONEY)
You really want to feel Ashamed.
Feel Ashamed for what you ' SO CALLED GANDHI'S' have done to MAHATMA'S Legacy..
I so wish GANDHI JI had Copyrighted his Name!
Meanwhile, I would request Sonia Gandhi to change her name to $ONIA GANDHI, and you could replace the 'R' in RAHUL/RAUL by the New Rupee Symbol!!!
NATHURAM GODSE DIDN'T KILL GANDHI, YOU PEOPLE DID.
RAUL VINCI : I am ashamed to call myself an Indian.
Even we are ashamed to call you so!
P.S: Popular Media is either bought or blackmailed, controlled to Manufacture Consent!
My Guess is Social Media is still a Democratic Platform. (Now they are trying to put legislation's to censor that too!!)
Meanwhile, Let's ask these questions, for we deserve some Answers.
For we are all Gandhi's. For Bapu is the Father of the Nation!

|Jihadi Crusaders Nexus ! Mother India Bleeds,|
DISCLAIMER: I DON'T ENDORSE ANY POLITICAL PARTY.
NOR DO I ENDORSE ANY OF WHAT MAYAWATI IS DOING.
WAS JUST TAKEN ABACK BY RAHUL GANDHI'S HYPOCRITICAL COMMENT AT THE RECENT FARMER AGITATION IN UTTAR PRADESH.
Rahul Gandhi: "I feel ashamed to call myself an INDIAN after seeing what has happened here in UP".
PLEASE DON'T BE ASHAMED OF U.P. YET
Please don't be ashamed of Uttar Pradesh yet. Congress ruled the State for the Majority of the duration Pre Independence to Post Independence.. from 1939 to 1989 (B arring the Periods of Emergency.. Thanks to your Grand Mom Indira Gandhi. and a couple of transitional Governments)
8 out of the total 14 Prime Ministers of India have been from UP, 6 out of those 8 have been from Congress...
I think your party had more than half a century and half a Dozen PM's to build a State...
The Reason Mulayam Singh, subsequently came to Power is because your party wasn't exactly Gandhian in their dealings in the State.. So May be If you look at in totality the present chaos in UP is the outcome of the glorious leadership displayed by Congress in UP for about 50 years!
So Please don't feel ashamed as yet Dear Rahul..
For Mayawati is only using the Land Acquisition Bill which your party had itself used to LOOT the Farmers many times in the Past!
WHY DIDN'T YOUR PARTY CHANGE THE BILL WHEN IT WAS IN POWER FOR SO LONG?
Not that I Endorse what Mayawati is doing.. What Mayawati is doing is Unacceptable..
But the past actions of your party and your recent comments, puts a question mark on your INTENT and CONSISTENCY.
YOU REALLY WANT TO FEEL ASHAMED
But don't be disappointed, I would give you ample reasons to feel ashamed...
You really want to feel Ashamed..?
First Ask PranaB Mukherjee, Why isn't he giving the details of the account holders in the Swiss Banks.
Ask your Mother, Who is impeding the Investigation against Hasan Ali in the 74,000 Crore tax evasion case ?
Rajiv Gandhi had a total of Swiss Franc 2.5 billion ($2.2 billion) in secret account In November 1991 .
After his death, SoniaG was the sole beneficiary of that amount. And that was 1991, Only She knows her account balance now..
Could that be the reason the Govt. of India is not releasing the list of account holders in the Swiss Banks ?
Ask her, Who got 60% Kickbacks in the 2G Scam ?
Kalamdi is accused of a Few hundred Crores,
Who Pocketed the Rest in the Common Wealth Games?
Ask Praful Patel who made Indian Airlines so Sick?
Why did Air India let go of the Profitable Routes ?
Why should the Tax Payer pay for the Air India losses?
Also, You People can't run an Airline Properly. How can we expect you to run the Nation?
Ask Manmohan Singh. Why/What kept him quiet all this while?
People say He is Honest. Honest to the Nation, or Honest to a PERSON?
THE CBI raided the vault of the Reserve Bank of India and found a huge cache of COUNTERFEIT INDIAN currency lying in the denomination of 500 and 1000.
IN THE RESERVE BANK OF INDIA???
Why is the Govt. of India quiet on that ?
So, Could the reasons for sustained INFLATION be MORE related to POLITICS than ECONOMICS?
Who let the BHOPAL GAS TRAGEDY Accused go Scot Free? (20,000 People died in that Tragedy)
Who ordered the State Sponsored Massacre of SIKHS in 84?
Please read more about, How Indira Gandhi pushed the Nation Under Emergency in 76-77, after the HC declared her election to Lok Sabha Void!
(I bet She had utmost respect for DEMOCRACY and JUDICIARY an d FREE PRESS)
I guess you know the answers already. So My question is, Why the Double Standards in Judging Mayawati and members of your Family and Party?
I condemn Mayawati. But Is She the only one you feel Ashamed for?
What about the ones close to you? For their contribution to the Nation's Misery is beyond comparison.
You talk about the Land being taken away from the Farmers. How many Suicides have happened under your Parties Rule in Vidarbha ? Does that Not Ashame You ?
THE 72,000 CRORE LOAN WAIVER
Your Party gave those Farmers a 72,000 Crore Loan Waiver. Which didn't even reach the Farmers by the way.
So, Why don't you focus on implementing the policies which your govt. has undertaken, instead of earning brownie points by trying to manufacture consent by bombarding us with pictures of having food with Poor Villagers....
You want to feel ashamed. You can feel ashamed for your Party taking CREDIT for DEBITING the Public Money (72,000 crores) from the Government Coffers and literally Wasting it...
You want to feel ashamed.. Feel ashamed for that...
WHY ONLY HIGHLIGHT THIS ARREST?
Dear Rahul, to refresh your memory, you were arrested/detained by the FBI the BOSTON Airport in September 2001.
You were carrying with you $ 1,60,000 in Cash. You couldn't explain why you were carrying so much Cash.
Incidentally He was with his Columbian girlfriend Veronique Cartelli, ALLEGEDLY, the Daughter of Drug Mafia.
9 HOURS he was kept at the Airport.
Later then freed on the intervention of the then Prime Minister Mr. Vajpayee.. FBI filed an equivalent of an FIR in US and released him.
When FBI was asked to divulge the information, by Right/Freedom to Information Activists about the reasons Rahul was arrested ... FBI asked for a NO OBJECTION CERTIFICATE from Rahul Gandhi.
So Subramaniyam Swami wrote a Letter to Rahul Gandhi, " If you have NOTHING to HIDE, Give us the Permission"
HE NEVER REPLIED!
Why did that arrest not make Headlines Rahul? You could have gone to the Media and told, "I am ashamed to call myself an INDIAN?".
Or is it that, you only do like to highlight Symbolic Arrests (like in UP) and not Actual Arrests ( In BOSTON)
In any case, you want to feel ashamed, Read Along...
YOUR MOTHER'S SO CALLED SACRIFICE OF GIVING UP PRIME MINISTER SHIP in 2004.
According to a Provision in the Citizenship Act.
A Foreign National who becomes a Citizen of India, is bounded by the same restrictions, which an Indian would face, If he/she were to become a Citizen of Italy.
(Condition based on principle of reciprocity)
Now Since you can't become a PM in Italy, Unless you are born there.
Likewise an Italian Citizen can't become Indian PM, unless He/She is not born here!
Dr. SUBRAMANIYAM SWAMI (The Man who Exposed the 2G Scam) sent a letter to the PRESIDENT OF INDIA bringing the same to his Notice.
PRESIDENT OF INDIA sent a letter to Sonia Gandhi to this effect, 3:30 PM, May 17th, 2004.
Swearing Ceremony was scheduled for 5 PM the same Day.
Manmohan Singh was brought in the Picture at the last moment to Save Face!!
Rest of the SACRIFICE DRAMA which she choreographed was an EYE WASH!!!
In fact Sonia Gandhi had sent, 340 letters, each signed by different MP to the PRESIDENT KALAM, supporting her candidacy for PM.
One of those letters read, I Sonia Gandhi, elected Member from Rai Bareli, hereby propose Sonia Gandhi as Prime Minister.
So SHE was Pretty INTERESTED! Until She came to know the Facts!
So She didn't make any Sacrifice, It so happens that SONIA GANDHI couldn't have become the PM of INDIA that time.
You could be Ashamed about that Dear Rahul!! One Credential Sonia G had, Even that was a HOAX!

Stop wondering and make the first move by sending some idols of Ganesha or Shiva you never know the "brahmana smiles" could be back.

|ORP's comments reflects his strong fundamentailstic views and his hatred towards minorities.|
Just cannot digest the fact that Rahul Ghandi is marrying a minority and is following christianity. Ironically, ORP lives as a minority in the USA, and probably is ignorant of the fact that he is in the same boat as the minorities in India.
People like ORP living as a minority in the USA, demand to be considered equal to others and do not want to be discriminated based on ones country of origin, relgious views,ethnicity etc....But, when it comes to India, they flip.

|Greart Rahul. Get married, settle down and take a oath for PM. Good doing and will be successful.|

|This report is amusing at so many levels!! Smiles…|
Where do we start? Well, how about the very first line –
“Described as the Prince Charming…”
Really? How come Prince Charm can’t sit down for one interview with a journalist? I guess he is also Prince Ignoramus!!
“The young lady from the Afghan royal family is known to be very well brought up, with a gentle mien and a generous nature”
“The personable lady could emerge as a key asset for Rahul Gandhi as he seeks to win a fresh mandate”
Sure – This could be a key factor in securing the minority votes!!
“She (Veronica – is ex girl friend) was rumoured to have been asked to bow out to avoid another controversy over a foreign wife coming into the Nehru-Gandhi family “
Interesting – So, it is all about avoiding controversy and securing minority votes, uh?
“She is said to have taken up Roman Catholic religion and informed sources said that Rahul and she often pray together in the home chapel of his mother Sonia's residence”
Great!! There goes the ‘brahmana’!! smiles… Also, would this upset ‘peaceful’ people? Who knows!! I wonder if there is any Ganesha or Shiva’s idol in tourist’s residence.
