RahulGandhi on a five-day-visit to Karnataka. (PTI)I feel bad for Rahul Gandhi sometimes. There is something about him that just doesn’t seem to fit. Unlike other sons of politicians, who have embraced politics, have mass appeal with the public and are riding high on their father’s connections, Gandhi consistently appears disconnected from politics and people. He always seems to be just a little out of place and a little bit out of touch.


From Kashmir to Tamil Nadu, we have examples of sons of politicians who have succeeded in connecting with people and continuing the dynastic tradition of Indian politics.


Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy is the most recent successful son currently riding out the legacy of his deceased father, Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy. Despite being in custody and facing allegations of embezzlement and disproportionate assets, his recently formed party just won . 5 out of 18 assembly seats last week in Andhra Pradesh.
