Same way as Sonia Gandhi, Rahuk Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sanjay Gandhi etc etc, he is the descendent of wrong surname and title users. Indiraji husband name was Feroz gandi but not Gandhi.

Menka Gandhi Loves Animals and protects them shelters them. Unfortunately she does not love Human beings. She taught her son how to kill people of other religion.

"This explains why she never took any action to save the lives of the Hindus in East Bengal. This also explain ...more

Matter of fact none of the Gandhi's in news these days has anything to do with M.G

That said, having Gandhi as surname, and proclaiming it loudly at the drop of a hat, is like having professional certification like a PMP or CFA - guarantees a job :)

Those who have an identity crisis desperately try establish some labyrinthine connection with well-established names. Displays basic insecurity.
