We all have seen Rahul Gandhi as a dynamic politician with his ability to question and take an active part as a member of parliament. But today, we will see a different side of him. In this episode of Sunday Brunch, our Editor-in-Chief Kamiya Jani is hosting Rahul Gandhi for a Sunday dinner in a small village in Rajasthan. Let us hear him talk about his schooling, childhood and two of the greatest Prime Ministers that India has seen.
Rahul Gandhi’s Relation With His Grandmother
It is no secret that Rahul Gandhi admires both his grandmother and father for being passionate and headstrong Prime Ministers. Recalling his childhood and schooling memories, he said, “Well, because my grandmother was assassinated…the security people said we can’t go to school. It was a shock, actually, because I was in boarding school. Then one day…a day before my grandmother’s death we were taken away from there. When my grandmother died then they just didn’t allow us to go to school.”

While shedding some light on his school memories, Rahul Gandhi adds, “The political position that my family used to take, which was quite a pro-poor position, and so a lot of the people who were teachers, I don’t think they appreciated that. They used to be quite nasty to me, but then there were others who sort of were nice. So it was a balance, I used to get both.”
The Bharat Jodo Yatra
The Bharat Jodo Yatra is spreading through the nooks and corners of India. Rahul Gandhi speaks his thoughts about this initiative where everyone is walking for a cause. “In our culture, meditation is very important. Meditation to understand yourself, understand others. It is a useful tool. That is also the thought behind the Yatra that if we do something, it should have some hardships, some pains, some difficulties. We get to study and learn from that. So I’m not the only one doing it, there are a lot of people as well you would’ve seen them. You walk with us”
