   I may be wrong, totally wrong... (August 20, 1986)

I may be wrong, totally wrong,, but I have this feeling that over the months Mrs. Gandhi has been Prime Minister he has been looking less and less like his grandfather and more and more like his mother. Yesterday, at the Indian Youth Congress convention, the transformation seemed to be complete, it was all Mrs. Gandhi and no Jawaharlal Nehru.

I remember, the first time he addressed a tea gathering, hosted by Mr. Y. P. Trivedi and Mr. Moti Daryanani, at the ballroom of the Taj. Though it was supposed to be a small and informal meeting with friends, there was at least a thousand people there, probably they knew he was going to be Prime Minister in the near future.

Mr. Gandhi, at that time, looked neither like his mother nor like his grandfather, he looked more like his father, the ballroom of the Taj. Though it was supposed to be a small and informal meeting with friends, there was at least a thousand people there, probably they knew he was going to be Prime Minister in the near future.

Mr. Gandhi, at that time, looked neither like his mother nor like his grandfather, he looked more like his father, the late Feroze Gandhi. I think he was still with Indian Airlines or just about to leave to "help mummy". He had no intention to speak, and when they insisted on his making a speech, he looked both embarrassed and nervous. Finally, he got up and spoke for less than a minute, the entire speech comprising two words- Thank you.

Yesterday, at the Youth Congress affair, he spoke for full 150 minutes (two-and-a-half hours), and at the end of that, made less sense than in that under-a-minute speech.

And he spoke exactly like his mother. Unnamed foreign powers (hands) were trying to destabilise India in order to make it change its non-aligned policy. But India would not allow anybody to interfere with its independent in two separate cases of Air-India pilots.

In fact, come to think of it, at yesterday's Youth Congress convention, he looked less like his mother and more like his late younger brother, Sanjay Gandhi.
