Over 50 years ago, an elegant Parsi in the Lok Sabha spoke; rather,roared ! 
He was exposing the first scam even though he belonged to the ruling party.
His father-in-law, PM, Jawaharlal Nehru was hearing his thundering words. 👇
Nothing could prevent  Feroze Gandhi from exposing corruptions.
The most extraordinary aspect of Feroze Gandhi’s work was the forensic precision
with which he collected facts and the manner in which he marshalled his arguments. 👇👇👇👇👇👇
He exposed the scam on the Life Insurance Corporation by Haridas Mundhra.
Feroze exposed how Mundhra manipulated the LIC to purchase shares in his little known companies.
Bowing to pressure, the Government appointed a commission of inquiry
headed by Chief Justice M C Chagla who upheld Feroze’s contentions and said that the Finance Minister should take responsibility.T T Krishnamachari resigned, the Finance Secretary was sacked and Mundhra jailed
Further, Feroze Gandhi exposed corruption by Dalmia- Jain Group, in the take over of Bennett Colman & Co, Owners of the Times of India,
by siphoning of the funds of public money in Gwalior Bank and Bharat Insurance.
They were the directors of these banking and insurance companies and transferred the money to their own company, which lead to the immediate collapse of these public institutions.
Next, Feroze exposed the Birlas, the Goenkas - (not the one running a newspaper). 👇👇👇
Such was his impact that within two months the Insurance industry was nationalised - LIC ! 

When some alleged that Feroze was doing these all for the Tatas, a brother Parsi....but, he next came against the Tatas.

Feroze exposed Telco for charging more than double for a Railway engine to the Indian Railways, which lead to the exit for Tatas and the formation of Locomotive workshops in the public sector.
Mahatma Gandhi is said to have told Feroze’s mother, Ratimai, in Allahabad in 1931: 👇
Feroze Gandhi, the greatest campaigner against corruption, sadly passed away in 1960 at the tender age of 48 ! 

Seeing the huge crowd, assembled for cremation, Nehru said : “I did not know that Feroze was so popular” !

A thread by a Army General.
Courtesy. Please read!!
The war was won on the battlefields by our Armed forces but we lost the war on negotiating tables of Shimla. The so called iron lady, Indira Gandhi, was totally defeated by more intelligent and crafty Bhutto.
Indira and her civilian advisers were no match to Bhutto and Co. and their guile. She had made a fatal mistake by not taking any military person to Shimla or adhering to military advice. As a result the nation is destined to suffer for eternity.
Main reason to write this post, is to tell you; another historical blunder done by Indira at Shimla. The background is as below:-
I was posted to Bhuj as Air force Base Commander in 1971 war.

Q: Why Laxmi bomb ? Why not Allah bomb? Or Jesus bomb?
A.Because, Bollywood can only make fun of Hindus, as Hindus are cowards and won’t mind even if you make fun of their mothers and wives. 👇
Q: Why is Laxmi in the name of a film that is to be released around Diwali, the holiest festival for Hindus?
A: *The aim of the film is to cause maximum offence to Hindus to check out their tolerance levels n make movies n future showing sex with Hindu Gods!
Q: Why is the hero’s character a Muslim, Aasif, when in the Tamil original, the hero was a Hindu?
A: *If the Hero is a Hindu, then none of the Pakistani Jihadis, who are the main patrons of Bollywood, will watch this film and so the producers will lose money* !
