Congress scion Rahul Gandhi is all set to celebrate his 39th birthday today in London, quietly and with close friends. Party sources confirmed yesterday that Rahul had already left for London. The celebration will be a private dinner, most likely with friends from his Cambridge days and some old family friends.
Rahul is not known for celebrating his birthdays in India. Also, London seems to be his favourite holiday destination — it was reported that last year, too, he had a private birthday party there.
Congress workers have been told to refrain from any grand celebrations. A senior functionary says on condition of anonymity, “There are clear instructions from 12 Tughlak Lane that there will be no grand celebrations. Party members have been asked to visit Dalit bastis and slums and distribute fruits and sweets there.”
Do it now, Rahul
Youngsters think this is the time for the country’s most eligible bachelor to tie the knot, and also maintain his leadership. JNU student Shahnawaz Khan wishes him saying, “May you be blessed with health and luck so that the nation can fulfil its aspirations under your leadership. But it’s also time that you sought a partner.”
Neha Uppal, an aspiring DU student, says, “Rahul has shown how complete a package he is of charming looks and intelligence. On his birthday, I wish him all the success to become the next PM.”
Some want return gifts, too. Bharat Singh Atwal, a 26-year-old entrepreneur, says, “On his birthday, he should promise the nation that he will induct more youngsters like him into politics.”
Will he marry?
Astrologer PK Bhanot says
The current placement of planets in his chart indicates that he has a neech bhanga raj yog at the moment, which means this period will raise him to the level of a king. These are metaphors from the shastras, and it means he will rise to the highest position in the land. His appeal will be most prominent among the poor. The next one year is beneficial for him, but there is no possibility of marriage.
New Delhi: After a thumping victory of Congress in the Lok Sabha polls, a wearisome Rahul Gandhi sure needs some cool-break, more over his 39th birthday has given him a reason to let his hair down.
The congress scion Rahul Gandhi is all set to celebrate his 39th birthday today in London. The affair is believed to remain a quiet and austere one, which could be chilling up with close pals.
Rahul had already left for London. The celebration will be a private dinner, most likely with friends from his Cambridge days and some old family friends.
According to sources, there are clear messages from 12 Tughlak Lane(Rahul's official residence) that there will be no gala celebrations and the partymen have been asked to visit Dalits and slums and distribute sweets.
However, even after making his birthday a simple one, it is expected not to deter enthused party workers to make it a gala affair, the Congress workers could gather in numbers at the party headquarter and state offices to wish all the best for their young birthday.
Another question which Rahul faces mostly is about his single status, his admirers would sure look forward to Rahul that when he starts his marital life.
Post Lok Sabha polls, Rahul has emerged as the key player in Congress fortunes and is being seen as a future Prime Minister, taking this in mind it would not be wise step to hog limelight for extravagant and lavish birthday celebrations for Rahul.
London is Rahul's favourite holiday destination, and last year he had, reportedly, hosted a private birthday party there
Sonia Gandhi is expected to be with Rahul today. There was no confirmation on whether sister Priyanka and brother-in-law Robert Vadra would join them or not.
Congress workers have been told to refrain from any grand celebrations.
Samay team wishes a great birthday time for Rahul Gandhi.
