Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul on Thursday flagged off massive celebrations to mark the 125th birth anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru. Rahul, who took potshots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP-led NDA government with renewed vigour, seems to have been inspired from Bollywood.
Surprised? Read more to learn about the real inspiration behind Rahul Gandhi’s diatribe and what he actually wants to convey.
‘As all that anger I had within me has turned into love for my nation”
Read: Maine tumse pyar kiya tumpe dil nisar kiya, maine tumse pyar kiya tumpe dil nisar kiya, marke bhi hum hoge na juda mere sanam, mere sanam teri kasam o mere sanam
Rahul remains unabashedly proud of the love he and his family has for the country. Remember, how he took pains to remind us of the sacrifices his family made lest we lesser mortals forget. Though, Rahul has refused to reveal the true inspiration, but informed sources say his boss in Congress revealed it to him. But were there not better motivations than the Armaan Kohli and Ayesha Jhulka (both has beens in Bollywood) starrer? Well the clue lies in the movie name. AULAAD KE DUSHMAN, need we say more.
‘Many wanted to get rid of English after 1947, but Nehruji said will use English language to unite with world’

Don’t be shocked and try to find the connect with what Rahul says and the Bollywood movie starring Amitabh Bachchan and Parveen Babi. Rahul offers sagely advice to his detractors (read Narendra Modi) to abhor anger. The Khuddar Gandhi scion’s intention becomes clear when you listen to the second line. ‘Gujaraati maa bole tane prem karuun chhuun, chhuun, chhuun’
‘Angry people are running country today, when the foundations are weak, then the enemies of this nation benefit’
Rahul may not have any love lost for his bête noire but he has only good intentions. See you can’t run a country like India with anger and fury, it only causes bloodshed (search Godhra on Wikipedia).
‘On one hand they are cleaning the road for photo opportunities and on other hand they are spreading hate’
Read: Mose chhal kiye jaye hay re hay hay Dekho saiyyan beiman
Well, how else do you expect him to react. Yet another sagacious advice culled out by Rahul Gandhi through his numerous escapes to the nirvana land of God Knows Where He Goes. More of an entreaty, part complaint and part heartfelt pain, Rahul is actually pleading with the Guide of India, to do what he is meant to do and not waste time in photo opportunities.
‘Whatever this nation has achieved from Mars Mission to our democracy is due to the vision of Jawaharlal Nehru’
Read: Chanda tere mama hai nehru tere chacha hai dharti teri mata hai nanhe munne bache tera sare jag se nata hai
Honestly, this was a googly. It took us lots of time to decipher the import of his message and the Bollywood inspiration. This proves beyond doubt the coming of age of Rahul Gandhi the politician and is a tight slap on the face of his detractors. It is yet another clarion call from Rahul for politically correct acts from those who matter.
It is no secret that the Congress has not taken kindly to the BJP-led NDA government disrespecting Indira Gandhi by failing to honour her on her death anniversary and instead celebrating Patel’s birth anniversary. Titans like Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi are pride of the nation and should be honoured by one and all. Hence, he tries to remind the BJP government and its leaders that, ‘Nehru tere chacha hain’.
