This man got married to the then most eligible bachelorette in the country – Priyanka Gandhi in 1997. Most Indians have wondered how he managed to snare her and keep hold of her in the intervening 16-17 years. She’s pretty he is not. She is powerful, he is was not. She’s tall, he’s short. It is one of the great modern Indian political mysteries – what did she see in him?? The question baffles us till date and is one of the reasons why this guy is someone everyone loves to hate. Alas for Robert Vadra, there are a multitude of reasons why everyone dislikes him:
Robert? What Kind Of Name Is That! Sounds like Ajit’s Sidekick in a Manmohan Desai Film
He’s Short! No Self Respecting Indian Male Permits Himself to Be Shorter Than His Wife – Get Some Heeled Shoes !
He Has Abs – What Does He Think He Is Salman Khan? No Obviously Not – He Isn’t Good Looking
But He Wears Pink Pants! Ah I Get it! He Actually Thinks He’s Govinda!
They Don’t Match – She’s Easy On The Eye, Him Not So Much
He Isn’t Terribly Bright – We Forgive Average Looks, Average Academics, Average Pretty Much Everything; But This Guy Apparently Has No Redeeming Excellence – Apart From A Talent for Land Grabbing that is
Seriously – He Makes Dear Old Brother in Law Seem Like a Rocket Scientist
He Is Damaad (Son in FLaw) No 1 – Quite Simply Too Many People Wanted To Be Him
You Know – देश के जमाई राजा कमाई राजा
He Gets Z Class Security – We ALL Want That! (….We Also Want a Laal Batti for Our Cars, But Never Mind That)
He Is Corrupt And Hasn’t Got Caught. Yet. This Is Why People Envy Him; Will Never Forgive Him
And he has that Chopper! And that Bike
And He Hob-Nobs With the Rich & Famous
And Because He Said “I gave up my life for Priyanka, fighting every day to not be a celebrity,”
(Seriously, he said that, kid you not)
