As many of you have read more posts by hubby, they know how he writes. Well for those coming to read his words for the first time, remember nothing needs to be taken seriously. If you do it is at your own risk 😀 😀
Very recently I read the famous Ram Chandra Guha’s interview The Nehru-Gandhi dynasty is clearly on its last legs. In that he had elucidated how with Rahul Gandhi’s lackluster personality the great political family’s future is now coming to an end.
It got me thinking. And then I switched on my IIT cum research cum husband mind on. Yes yes I know you all want to know how husband mind can bring about thinking. Well, it takes a lifetime to understand a woman and that too after you operate with 100% efficiency. So us husbands are secretly a part of Mensa. That is for another day, another post perhaps.
Moving on to more sensible things (ha! You wish!).
They say a picture is a thousand words, well I have two thousand words to help you understand what I understood from the understanding of the worlds where no one has ever been able to understand. Understood?
On the left is the great Gandhi-Nehru dynasty chart.
And on the right is great Kuru dynasty chart.
And yes some of you have started to see what I am going to speak.
A lot of the pictorial comparison can also reveal. But yes to put it clearly, try and overlap the two charts exactly. You will find that the story or the lineage fits in!
I have my points to support the theory.
Pandu, the real ruler of Kuru rashtra dies an unfortunate death. People of his land always felt he was more deserving. In this case too, Sanjay Gandhi though controversial was more involved with the running of country. In fact Rajiv Gandhi was never in the picture!
Moving on, why Priyanka Gandhi is the Dushala of Mahabarata. For two reasons, firstly she is a girl so daughter part fits in 😀 and secondly she will be the lone survivior if we see that Rahul Gandhi in his own words will be assassinated. His self professed “I will die like my father, grandmother” stories might just come true! Some of us pray they do.
But what makes this story more credible is Robert Vadra a.k.a Jayadradha. Jayadradha in Mahabharata was as notorious as the rest of kauravas. He is the one who plotted Abhimanyu’s killing and was finally killed by Arjun in the end. His lust for power is uncannily mirrored in Mrs. Vadra’s husband.
This is as far as my points of support goes. Of course I have more but some of them are too controversial to be posted. But yes if you have some other point of view or perhaps addition to my side do comment! We can create a modern mahabharta of our own kind. Alas we need a better Pandu in our case, Varun Gandhi seems to be equally lackluster. Can a certain Modi fit in somehow? 😀 😀

Love it, my core competency lies in the Mahabharata family tree but loved how you drew a clear parallel to the Nehru Gandhi family chart in this post.
Funnily enough we can try and make Modi Karna, that would make him Varun’s brother but a close friend of Rahul 😀 What do you think?
hehe interesting! Perhaps part two can have this 😀 😀
Interesting historical perspective
Thanks Jason 🙂
A lot of research has gone into this piece and it is evident. I loved Jairam’s option for fitting in Modi. 🙂
Research yes, if you would want to call attempts of an idle mind research 😀 😀
Thanks a lot 🙂
I loved your perspective.
Keep it Touched,
Haha…time for the husband to get his own blog, methinks! Loved the comparisons.
Thanks Corinne 🙂 well he sure can do one I think so too 😀 😀
OMG!! That’s such an interesting comparison!
hehehe interesting yes 😀 😀
Awesome comparisons. IITs do research well. 😉
Or so they say they can do it well and spend rest of the time convincing through such posts 😀 😀
I think your husband should have his own blog. Awesome. ♥
Thanks Kathy 😀 😀 I do believe he should now 😀
Reminded me of “The Great Indian Novel” by Shashi Tharoor which draws a parallel in a very similar way.
Exactly! I was thinking the same thing! 🙂 Richa – enjoyed the read. We all love to draw parallels with a story we know well and a story unfolding almost predictably!
Kudos to Mr Vikas Agarwal!
Really? So his research is actually true upto a certain extent, good to know !
Vidya vikas agarwal is saying thank you a lot 😀
Lol..This is certainly Modern Mahabharata..How Lucky I am to see the Epic with my Eyes.. 😛
hahaha we are all soo lucky to witness it then 😀
Loved it. As as Indian Writer commented above it does remind me of Great Indian Novel. Only this article is more pithy and funny 😉
Thanks Anu 🙂
LOL.. I liked the attempt to overlap the Kuru dynasty with the Gandhi dynasty.
Though not fully overlapping, the similarities are interesting and most importantly the implications are hopeful 😀
I love how you have subtly indicated the country’s choice 😀 😀
Interesting. If we compare the charts, Pappu is Duryodhan ! Thats superb its too funny !
haha it is it is. The post does speak of the present mood in country 😀
thanks *grins* on the side of husband 😀
Very interesting Comparision !!
Regards to Vikas Agarwal
Thanks Veena 🙂
Interesting post! What made me laugh my lungs out was that Rahul Gandhi fits the Duryodhan character!
Kudos to the mastermind who thought of this 😀 😀
Thanks a lot 🙂 the mastermind husband thought of this 😀
Every dynasty comes to a natural end. Let the Gandhis come to theirs too. But I hope we get some leaders better than the present rivals.
Yes that is true, finding leaders is much more imp than rivals…
haha…loved your hubby’s angle of thoughts.
well researched and written 🙂
Thanks Ruchira 🙂
Funny..but interesting thought!
Thanks a lot 🙂
hahaha… superb insights! Kudos….
Post brought a smile of my face 🙂
Mission successful 😀
Thats a new way of evaluating Mahabharat….I tried to explain your theories to my grandmom…..who happens to be a die hard fan of mahabharat genre….surprisingly if she quiet liked the concept…
I am happy that she liked the concept, hence proved husband’s research held some credibility!
Well compared 😀
thanks Tara 🙂
aptly connected two scenarios,good writing
Thanks a lot 🙂
