Found this picture quite by accident and thought it was incredibly cute! I usually enjoy looking at pictures of famous people in their younger days, and this one especially melted my heart.

@thinking aloud: a lot of people including myself can never get over the way he was killed.

A candid photograph. How beautiful !

Had 'Dhanu' (the human bomb that killed Rajiv Gandhi) seen this photo, she wouldn't have had the heart to indulge in such an insane act.

Karthik said...

Vinesh :::::I agree it was sad.U will not beleive when ever I used to cross Kathiparai Junction near Guindy or when I am caught in the famous traffic Jam I invariably notice RG 'S poster near the signal(oUR Political Heros change the poster every week).he was a charismatic person and his image could have lifted Globalised India in a much bigger way than it is today.Today leaders need Skills and charisma ..Do u agree...?

Vinesh said...

@curious: hmm.. yes :-(

@jo: would have been good had he been alive, and to compare a pic of them in old age with this one taken in their younger days..

Vinesh said...

@sandhya: glad you liked :-)

@karthik: now whether he has it or not, rahul gandhi is going to be the "inheritor" of the legacy :-)

Shashi Nayagam said...

I came across your blog and this picture while blog hopping and I think it is a beautiful picture of 2 people in love and just enjoying the simple pleasures of life. Oh to be young and carefree. Although I think there might have been body guards for Rajiv at least they are not visible here.
Thank you for sharing this picture

Preethi said...

new here...
this pic. is just so lovely. I especially like Sonia here. How carefree she looks... slurping an icecream with Rajiv right beside her. And black and white photo always does something to my heart. Beautiful....
