|Rare Photos Of Indira Gandhi & Feroze Gandhi|
I found this article. i hope this helps you a bit but no certain proof.
Indira Gandhi, daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru, became prime minister of India in 1966. Mrs. Gandhi was born on November 19, 1917 to Jawaharlal and Kamala Nehru. She was named Indira Priyadarshini Nehru. She fell in love and decided to marry Feroze Khan, a family friend. Feroze Khan’s father, Nawab Khan, was a Muslim, and mother was a Persian Muslim. Jawaharlal Nehru did not approve of the inter-caste marriage for political reasons (see)
. If Indira Nehru were to marry a Muslim she would loose the possibility of becoming the heir to the future Nehru dynasty. At this juncture, according to one story, MahatmaGandhi intervened and adopted Feroze Khan, gave him his last name (family name/caste name) and got the name of Feroz Khan changed to Feroz Gandhi by an affidavit in England. Thus, Feroze Khan became Feroze Gandhi. Though Mahatma belonged to Bania/Gandhi caste (a business tribe) the proposal was acceptable to Nehru for political reasons. Indira Nehru married Feroze (Khan) Gandhi in 1942 and became Indira Gandhi, which helped her politically as daughter of Nehru (the first Prime Minister of the Indian Union) and daughter–in-law of Gandhi (the father of the nation) securing her place in the future Nehru-Gandhi dynasty (based on ). Another story, according to in a personal communication to me, is that Feroz had a Parsi father whose surname was "GHANDI" not "GANDHI". That was made clear by an advertisement in a major English newspaper of Allahabad. It was Mahatma Gandhi who suggested to Nehru that Feroze's surname be spelt as "GANDHI" instead of the original "GHANDI". An RSS columnist wrote that "Ghandi's" mother was a Muslim, and since an offspring takes on the religion of its mother, Feroz ought to be considered a Muslim

Bamboo candles are easily-made and beautiful alternatives to the standard homemade candles. Forget the wine bottles and dripping wax and melting down crayons! Create your own bamboo candles to accompany a romantic bamboo mealor to use when you slip into your cozy Ari Yoga Pants and spend some time meditating by their natural glow. They also make unique centerpieces for an upcoming eco-friendly wedding!
Here’s what you need to make your bamboo candles:
- Bamboo canes, roughly 6 inches in diameter
- Double Boiler
- Large wick with metal tab
Here’s how to make your bamboo candles:
- Use the saw to cut the bamboo canes to differing lengths. Make sure they have level bottoms!
- Melt wax in a double boiler.
- Once melted, pour 2 inches of wax into the bamboo cane.
- Immediately insert the wick into the bamboo candle.
- Let the wax harden.
- Fill the remaining area of the bamboo cane with wax.
- Let the wax cool for 4 hours before using.
- Before using, trim the wax to ¼ inch.

An old saying goes that no fan can create a cool breeze unless it is soaked with the maker’s sweat. And while some amazing bamboo fans can take almost 100 days to complete between picking the perfect bamboo pieces and hand painting intricate designs, there are easier methods to creating not-quite-so-spectacular-but-equally-effective hand-powered cooling systems.
Here’s what you need to make your bamboo fan:
- 14 x 17 in. sheets of paper (pick fun colors or patterns!)
- 11 12-inch long bamboo sticks
- 2 inch headpin
- Thread (not too thick but not too thin either)
- Needle nose pliers
Here’s how to make your bamboo fan:
- Start by creating the bones of the fan. Mark the middle of the sticks (width wise) and one inch from the one end of each of the sticks (the same end please!).
- Use the needle to create holes through the marks on the middle of the bamboo sticks.
- Thread the sticks together through the newly-created holes in the middle. Pull the bamboo together as if the fan were in a closed position. (Hint: If you wanted to decorate and/or paint the bones of the fan, now is the time to do so!)
- Thread the head pin back through the holes. Using the needle nose pliers, twist the other end of the head pin just tight enough to keep the bones together but loose enough to allow for pivoting. Trim any extra thread with scissors.
- Spread the paper out and set the bamboo bones evenly down on the paper. Tape the bones to the paper.
- Mark the paper ½ inch above the top of the bones and 1 inch on each side. Cut the bottom and top of the paper in an arc. (If you wish, remove the bones carefully to paint or draw designs on the paper.)
- Glue the bones to the paper and let dry completely.
- To fold the fan, start on one end and begin folding by bringing the first bone to the second bone and folding the paper in. Continue to fold in this manner and once done, trim any excess paper.
Use your beautiful bamboo fan to stay cool this summer!
