Early Childhood

Rahul Gandhi was born on 19 June 1970 in Delhi. He is the elder of the two children of the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. His mother, Sonia Gandhi, originally hails from Italy and now holds an Indian citizenship. His younger sister, Priyanka Vadra, is married to Robert Vadra who is a businessman.

A series of incidents followed which impacted Rahul and his family directly. The assassination of Indira Gandhi on 31 October 1984 led Rajiv Gandhi to enter politics. He subsequently became the Prime Minister of India. The family, including the children, faced security threats from extremists of the Sikh community because of which Rahul and his sister Priyanka did the rest of their schooling from home. In 1989, Rahul joined St. Stephen’s College in Delhi but after completing the first year, he moved to the Harvard University.

Unfortunately, in 1991, Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated by the extremist outfit LTTE. Again, due to security reasons, Rahul Gandhi had to shift to Rollins College, Florida, where he completed his Bachelors in 1994. During this time, he had to assume the pseudonym, Raul Vinci. Only security agencies and university officials knew of his real identity. In 1995, he completed his M.Phil. in Development Studies from the Trinity College of Cambridge.

Rahul Gandhi informed the press in 2004 that he has a Spanish girlfriend Veronique Cartelli, who is an architect and lives in Venezuela.
