Pandit Nehru, like Lenin, died due to syphilis. Does anybody know if this is
correct ? Has any scientific analysis of Nehru's remains been done to
determine if he did die in this manner ?
RB> Allahabad has lots of old gossip about the nehru family. Nehru is
supposedly an adopted child of Pt motilal and was born of muslim parents.
Another one claims he is Nutan the actresses half brother. Yet another
claims that his mother was a muslim prostitute. Their old house later
belonged to a prostitute leading to these stories maybe. Stanley wolpert the
historian says that nehru was gay. I feel sorry for Nehru. Its unlikely that
these stories are true.

Sanjay really fail their exams as Sword of Truth says ?
RB> I have met several people who knew Indira gandhi as a kid, She was also

big deal. Sanjay was pretty erratic and a trouble maker. Recently even his
son varun admitted to the press that his fathers doings were not right.
