Will get married when right girl comes along: Rahul Gandhi
1/23/2023 10:50:02 PM
NEW DELHI, Jan 23: Viewed as India's most eligible bachelor by some, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi says he'll get married when the right girl comes along and part of the problem is that his parents' "really lovely marriage" has set the bar very high.
In a free-wheeling, light-hearted chat on food and travel platform Curly Tales on YouTube, Gandhi switched from the 'only politics' track to discuss a range of personal issues, including his growing-up years, his food preferences and his exercise regimen.
The 52-year-old former Congress president said he has nothing against marriage. "Part of the problem is my parents had a really lovely marriage and they were completely in love with each other, so my bar is very high," he said, referring to his parents Rajiv and Sonia Gandhi.
"When the right girl comes along. I will get married. I mean if she comes along, she comes along. It will be good."
Asked if he has a checklist for the kind of person he wants to get married to, Gandhi said, "No, just a loving person who is intelligent."
During the dinner interaction recorded during the Rajasthan leg of his Bharat Jodo Yatra outside his container, Gandhi said he is not very fussy about food and eats anything that is available but does not like "matar and kathal (peas and jackfruit)".
Gandhi, who has been on the road since September when he started his Yatra from Kanyakumari and is now in Jammu and Kashmir, said he's "pretty strict" about his diet when at home.
"But here I don't have much choice," he said in the video of the chat posted by the Congress on its social media handles on Sunday.
Telangana was a "little bit spicy" for his taste. "The chillies were a bit over the top. I don't eat that much chillies."
Asked what food is cooked at home, he said there is "desi khana" for lunch and some sort of continental food for dinner. He follows a controlled diet and avoids too many sweet things.
Gandhi added that he "tends to be non-vegetarian" and likes all kinds of stuff such as chicken, mutton and seafood. His favourite dishes are chicken tikka, seekh kebabs and a good omelette. He said he prefers a cup of coffee in the morning.
Listing his favourite eating joints in the national capital, Gandhi said he would go to old Delhi but now his staples are Moti Mahal, Sagar, Swagat and Saravanaa Bhavan, the first a Mughlai food restaurant and the other three dishing up south Indian food.
Discussing his roots, he said his is a Kashmiri Pandit family which moved to Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh.
"Grandfather was a Parsi, so I'm a complete mixed…," he said, referring to his paternal grandfather Feroze Gandhi.
