Hagiographers have been busy writing epithets in the honor of Priyanka Vadra. The royal ascension has inspired the Dynasts/Darbaris to weave grandiloquent tales about her being.

Thread on Priyanaka Chalisa in Liberattis' words:


"What voters appreciate in leaders is the promise of humility and common touch that Priyanka has over Narendra Modi’s arrogance and swagger", writes Sunil Sethi, a Journalist and Calumnyist

"The sense that Priyanka could be the one was overwhelming", Says Ruchir Sharma who heads Emerging Markets Equity team at Morgan Stanley.

"Those who have seen her even on television know how quickly she makes a connection, how fluently and idiomatically she speaks and how easily she connects with the people“, says the wordsmith, @ShashiTharoor

“Priyanka Gandhi brings with her the legacy of Indira Gandhi whose reflection she is and for whom, the nation and especially the people of UP have been waiting in hope for,” writes Ashwini Kumar, Editor of Delhi Pujab Kesari, a BJP MP gone renegade

“She also has an ease and spontaneity that make her a photographer’s delight — flopping down on a patch of mud and grass to share a bite with a village woman, leaning over to pull her mother, Sonia Gandhi’s, cheek...”, writes @BDUTT for WaPO

“A voracious reader of Hindi literature, Ms Vadra wrote her mother’s early political speeches and campaigned in her constituency, Amethi.” Writes @AmyKazmin of FT

“Priyanka is known to be personable and charismatic. While the brother is inquisitive and academic, the sister connects with the masses and is an excellent public speaker.”, writes Ashok Swain, Professor at Uppsala University, Sweden

How’s the Josh, Bro.

Cometh the hour, cometh the sister



"She strikes me as a woman who has a sensitive and sincere approach to the public, credible, well spoken, reclusive by her own admission, but always very dignified", says Nirupama Menon, previous Indian Ambassador to US and China. @NMenonRao

“entry of a liberal-progressive-charismatic woman leader improves India’s political landscape.”, says Arfa Khanum Sherwani @khanumarfa


“She is known for her level-headedness, practical sense, inner stability, political acumen, and poise. She has no affectations, but is still able to hold her own with just her presence.”.

Writes @MakrandParanspe

A 2017 Indian Express article.
“Is Priyanka Gandhi the feminist icon India has been waiting for?”


Hindi newspapers are at another level.

"प्रियंका की छवि अपने घर-परिवार के लिए प्रतिबद्ध एक सौम्य नारी, क्षेत्र की जनता से सहज मेलजोल रखने वाली कार्यकर्ता और एक खुशनुमा, तेज-तर्रार, हाजिरजवाब, निर्भीक नेत्री की बनती चली गई."

@VijayshankarC of ABP

"प्रियंका के लोगों से मिलने का अंदाजा, बात करने का तरिका, किसी गरीब बच्चे को अपनी गोद में बिना झिझक उठा लेना, ये बहुत सारी तस्वीरें है जो प्रियंका को आम लोगों से जोड़ती हैं."


“Priyanka Gandhi, the ‘charismatic’ sister of Congress party leader Rahul Gandhi, has formally joined politics months ahead of general elections in India.”, reports @BBC

@thewire_in - affable & spontaneous,. speaks mellifluous Hindi, straight out of ...Allahabad, if reverse psychology is anything, the argument can be made that Priyanka wouldn’t have dared take this step if her husband’s business deals were irregular 17/41…
"Priyanka Gandhi can be to Congress what Sunil Gavaskar was for India in West Indies", says Kumar Ketkar

"Known to speak her mind..reputation of being a public figure who can establish an instant rapport..gave her first public speech at 16, holds a Master’s degree in Buddhist Studies.,known for writing political speeches for her mother, writes @NPDay

"India symbolises a lot of things for me. It is about the diversity of religions & ideologies ." It is an answer reminiscent of.. Nehru...but in pre-Narendra Modi’s Bharat her words had seemed bordering on hyperbole than reality", says @jomalhotra 20/41…
"Is Priyanka Gandhi the greatest victim of patriarchy in Indian politics?", says
@DilliDurAst in a 2018 article

"Her spontaneity, simplicity and ability endear everyone...she has vision and simplicity...has country’s best interests in her heart and is worried about the common man’s welfare and wants to make their life happy...", says Vijay Darda of Lokmat

Even before Rahul Gandhi learned to say ‘women empowerment’.., Priyanka was associated with the actual groundwork the party would eventually go on to boast of. No, she wasn’t just a pretty face. She was the face that meant business...

"Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is a formidable campaigner. In speech, she can be firmly soft and softly firm, deftly using her charisma to connect with the audience", says @VinodSharmaView of HT

Here, India Today journalist is choreographing celebrations for Priyanka's grand entry in politics.

"..none other than Priyanka Gandhi could fit that bill...clearly has it all – an important profile, excellent communication skills, a prompt connect with crowds and...the charisma...reminiscent of her...grandmother...", says @sharatpradhan21.
