India’s most famous and polarising politician and a man who once claimed to be the world’s greatest pilot has died at the age of 88.
The legendary Rajiv Gandhi, the country’s first prime minister, had an illustrious aviation career spanning many decades, with an aircraft portfolio spanning the world.
But the aviation legend has long been regarded with suspicion and was not popular with many Indians.
He was first elected to Parliament in 1949, and was the first Indian politician to have his photograph taken in a flying saucer.
The country’s most powerful aviation force, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), was not averse to his political views.
But in an age of social media, where politicians were not necessarily popular with the public, Gandhi’s image and career were often at risk.
He had been accused of being a man of big words and of being too sensitive about Hindutva politics.
But his reputation for outspokenness was not what many of his supporters wanted.
The aviation legend was born on May 22, 1931 in Madras.
He became a politician as an apprentice at the Railway Institute in a school run by a family-run organisation.
His father, a minister, was an air force pilot.
He later served as a member of the Rajiv-led Congress party and later the government.
After the assassination of his father, Gandhi returned to Madras as an air hostess and began a career in the aviation industry.
He took over as a minister in 1951 and quickly rose to become India’s prime minister.
The man who would become India ‘s prime minister’ in 1951, was a man nicknamed “The Tiger”.
The legend began with a photo shoot with a large white elephant, and the name stuck.
The elephant, nicknamed Rajiv, was Gandhi’s pet and the symbol of the RSS, the ruling party.
It was in this role that he became known as the Tiger.
In 1953, he was elected to parliament and was elected the country ‘s first prime Minister.
The first aircraft to be designed and built in India was the Boeing B734-100.
In the late 1970s, the aircraft made its maiden flight.
The aircraft was the result of a collaboration between Indian engineer G.K. Sinha and US-based aircraft manufacturer Boeing.
It went on to be used by India’s Air Force for years to come.
The B7-100 became the benchmark for a wide range of modern aircraft.
It became known for its large wingspan and wide body, which allowed for the aircraft to reach altitudes of more than 100 kilometres.
It had a crew of five and a total flight time of up to three hours.
Gandhi, however, did not have the best record for taking off from the ground.
In an interview with the Hindustan Times in the 1980s, he claimed that the aircraft was designed to fly on the ground and was therefore incapable of doing so.
In the early 1980s he was also accused of having the largest penis ever measured in India, at 9.6 metres long and 5.6cm wide.
His penis was also deemed to be one of the worst in the world by the World Health Organization, and he was later forced to resign from the Indian parliament for alleged health issues.
In 1991, after a string of scandals, including the assassination attempt on the then prime minister Rajiv in 1991, the BJP-led government, led by then Prime Minister Rajiv Kumar Shinde, appointed a new prime minister to take over the reins of power.
India’s then PM, Manmohan Singh, who was at the time the youngest member of Parliament, announced a number of reforms in an attempt to end what he called a political crisis.
The government of Prime Minister Manmukhi (left) and Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru (right) announced reforms to the country in 1991.
Manmohan Singh (left) was the youngest MP of India.
In June 1991, he announced reforms in the country, including reducing the size of the parliament.
Jawaharlaldh Nehru was India’s first Prime Minister and leader of the country.
He was a leader in the Indian Communist Party, which led the opposition to Manmavish Sen’s reforms.
He would be the last Prime Minister to serve a full term.
India became one of only two countries in the entire world, the other being the US, to achieve a low per capita GDP in terms of GDP per capita.
India achieved its first oil export in 1974, followed by another in 1988, with two more in 1990, 1991 and 1993.
It achieved the lowest per capita gross domestic product per capita in the 1990s.
India was one of few countries to achieve two consecutive decades of low inflation.
India has also achieved economic growth of 3.5% annually.
Gandharwal said that in order to achieve that growth, the government must do more than merely enact reforms
