Feroze Gandhi Politician
Feroze Jehangir Gandhi or Feroze Gandhy (Firoz Jahangīr Gāndhī; Hindi: फिरोज जहाँगीर गांधी; 12 September 1912 – 8 September 1960) was an Indian politician and journalist, and publisher of the The National Herald and The Navjivan newspapers from Lucknow. He became a member of the provincial parliament (1950–1952), and later a member of the Lok Sabha, the Lower House of India's parliament. In 1942 he married Indira Nehru (later Prime Minister of India) and they had two sons, Rajiv Gandhi (also later a Prime Minister) and Sanjay Gandhi, and thus became part of the Nehru dynasty. Feroze Jehangir Gandhi was born in Mumbai at the Tehmulji Nariman Hospital situated in Fort, to a Parsi (Zoroastrian) family from Gujarat. Feroze's surname being Gandhi has nothing to do with the surname of the father of the nation Shri Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. His family had migrated to Bombay from Bharuch in South Gujarat where their ancestral home, which belonged to his grandfather, still exists in Kotpariwad. Feroze was the youngest of the five children of Jehangir Faredoon Gandhi and Ratimai Gandhi (formerly Ratimai Commissariat).

Indian National Congress
Official web page
The Indian National Congress, abbr. INC, also commonly called the Congress is one of the two major contemporary political parties in India, the other being the Bharatiya Janata Party. It is one of the largest and oldest democratically-operating political parties in the world. Founded by freedom fighter activists in 1885, it dominated politics nationally for most of the period from 1947–89. There have been seven Congress Prime Ministers, the first being Jawaharlal Nehru, serving from 1947–64 and the most recent being Manmohan Singh, serving from 2004-14. The party's social liberal platform is largely considered to be on the centre-left of the Indian political spectrum. The INC was primarily founded by a prominent member of the Theosophical Society, Allan Octavian Hume in 1885, along with Dadabhai Naoroji and Dinshaw Wacha. In the following decades, the Indian National Congress became a pivotal participant in the Indian Independence Movement, with over 15 million members and over 70 million participants in its struggle against British colonial rule in India.
