Ghandi's Daughter Says 'no' to the Sari


This from today.
"She is a member of that most famous of Indian families, the Gandhis, but Priyanka Gandhi Vadra stands accused of the most un-Indian of fashion crimes - ditching the sari in favour of western clothes.

The elegant daughter of ruling Congress party leader Sonia Gandhi has caused a stir in Delhi by turning up for a crucial parliamentary session in a tight-fitting white blouse and smart black trousers, topped with a wide belt."
What could be said about her 'textile' text?

Dude, though the family name is Gandhi, they are not related to peaceful man. It is actually the continuation of Nehru family when daughter Indira married one Feroze Gandhi (not related to Gandhi from the movie). So Nehru dynasty continues with Indira Gandhi becoming the PM, after Nehru - India's first PM, next in line Rajiv Gandhi, followed by Sonia (Italian bride, not the PM though). Next in line would be son Rahul and daughter Priyanka. That concludes primer in India's dynastic politics. Don't care much about Sari.
