Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has been in limelight for a long time now, though always for political reasons. Because their boat has developed leaks, Congress apparatchiks see the “Priyanka Factor” as a solution and only hope for survival. This has slowly developed a separate mainstream political image of Priyanka, slightly distinct from her brother Rahul. But this is known to all. Everyone is aware of this image of Priyanka Gandhi. So we will read about a few interesting things about her life which are noteworthy and, perhaps, define the real Priyanka.

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was born on January 12, 1972, to Rajiv and Sonia Gandhi. (Rahul was born on June 19, 1970.)

Yes, Priyanka is two years younger to her brother.

Rahul Priyanka

She had to change schools frequently due to political reasons. However, after the assassination of her grandmother Indira Gandhi, she had to drop her studies and was homeschooled.

She delivered her first public speech as a 16-year-old, which defines her skills as an excellent orator.

In 2010, Priyanka completed MA in Buddhist studies.


She has also tried her luck with the radio operating.

Unlike her brother, Priyanka is quick to temper and is averse to taking risks.

But more importantly, she is described as more ruthless than her brother and one who punishes those who disobey her. Quite like her grandmother.

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra follows Buddhist teachings in her quest for personal peace. She has been a Vipassana practitioner for 11 years.

She has an avid interest in photography, inherited from her late father.

She attended a six-month photography course conducted by the Triveni Kala Sangam in New Delhi.

Like any other mother, she prepares meals for her children, getting them dressed up and then dropping them off to school.



Some say she was groomed by her grandmother as a toddler, who might have identified her potential as a leader. Maybe that is true.
