  1. This leaves out Gandhi's untouchable adopted daughter, Lakshmi. She was the daughter of Dudabhai who brought his family to the Sabarmati ashram.

  2. This site information is incomplete:

    Ramdas Gandhi's family:

    1) Prof. Gajanan Kulkarni -- Husband of Sumitra Gandhi, founding faculty at IIMA and Dean

    2) Nilu Shrikrishna Kulkarni -- wife of Shrikrishna Kulkarni
    3) Vishnu Shrikrishna Kulkarni -- son of Shrikrishna Kulkarni

  3. Photo of C. Rajagopalachari with his grandchildren has baby Gopalkrishna Gandhi sitting on the lap of Sumitra Gandhi, the daughter of Ramdas Gandhi. It seems incorrect not to put her name in the list below the photo. Please add the name.

  5. The photo of C. Rajagopalachari with his grandchildren has baby Gopalkrishna sitting on the lap of Sumitra Gandhi, the daughter of Ramdas Gandhi...isn't it appropriate to mention this detail in the photo commentary?

    Sumitra Gandhi is now the eldest living grandchild of the Mahatama. She was 19 when he was assassinated. It was her father Ramdas Gandhi who lit the funeral pyre at the funeral of the Mahatama. Freedom at Midnight has wrongly cataloged Devdas Gandhi as the son who lit the pyre. Sumitra Gandhi wanted to study at Shantiniketan, but the Mahatama felt that after the passing of Gurudev, it was no more the same. It was on the insistence of Madan Mohan Malaviya that Bapu agreed to allow Sumitra Gandhi to study at Banaras Hindu University. Sumitra was bought up at Sevagram Ashram. All the children of Ramdas Gandhi were brought up at Sevagram Ashram near Wardha...Bapu's ashram in India.

    Kanu Ramdas Gandhi got a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering from College of Engineering Pune, which he followed up with a Graduate Degree from MIT Boston, USA.

    Ramdas Gandhi and his wife Nirmala Gandhi lived their entire lives in the Gandhi Ashram at Sevagram. Ramdas Gandhi died in 1969, while Nirmala Gandhi died in August 2000 in Sevagram.

  6. Thank you so much for accepting the inputs and making the site more complete and authentic. Probably you should get photos of Nirmala Gandhi, Prof. Kulkarni, Nilu Kulkarni and Vishnu Kulkarni too.

    Kanu Gandhi is married to Shiva Lakshmi not Batsheva.

  7. It is probably better to say that Ramdas Gandhi was austere and frugal to a fault. Any old generation at Sevagram Ashram will attest to this. He was called Bhaiji at the Ashram. He was a bhakta of Bhagwan Sri Ramana Maharishi. It is not appropriate to say that he had no taste for asceticism. Asceticism was not a trait that was expected of any of the Mahatama's children. Ramdas Gandhi was at the forefront of the Dandi Salt Satyagraha. He led the team which had Morarji Desai and S.B. Chavan as volunteers. He wrote his memoirs in Gujarati, titled "Sansmarano"..he was probably as Gandhi as you can get...probably the most of Gandhi's children.

    Harilal Gandhi was Bapu's eldest, and his first Satyagrahi. He was older than Nehru. Bapu denied him education, although Harilal Gandhi deserved a scholarship to study law in the UK on merit. Gandhiji probably did not ever learn how to handle his son, as their age gap was so little. I believe, Harilal Gandhi is the most misunderstood and grave injustice is done to his contribution. Sumitra Gandhi in her book in Hindi, Anmol Virasat, and its later version Mere Pitamah has described this relationship beautifully. Shyam Benegal took this book and its inputs while making the movie "Gandhi my Father", but as is with most Indian's he never gave her any credit, nor did he return the books he borrowed from Sumitra Gandhi :-)

  9. It's unbelievable, but true, that now your site has (by accepting to change the credit on the photo of Rajgopalachari with his grandchildren, and including the name of Sumitra Gandhi) surpassed Time LIFE. In the picture by Margaret Bourke White, Sumitra Gandhi is there, but here name is conspicuously missing.

  11. Hello Syamala, please do not say sorry. The effort you have put in your website is huge and commendable. I just wanted to share some details with your readers, that will give a personal touch. Especially about Ramdas Gandhi. Not much is written about him as he never sought attention of any kind.

    There is an episode that happened on Jan 30, 1962. Mr. Nehru was still alive. Ramdas Gandhi was at the prayer meeting at Birla house. After the prayers as a mark of respect, Ramdas Gandhi walked up to Mr. Nehru (in those days there were probably fewer hangers on and probably no security) and folding his palms in pranam, introduced himself as "mein Ramdas". To this Mr. Nehru replied...Ramdas kaun? At this point, Ramdas Gandhi just did a pranam and walked away. This was narrated to me by someone who was there at the venue on that day and witnessed this exchange. What do you make of this? First, probably, Mr. Nehru did not bother to know even the sons of the person whose prayer meeting he was attending !! And what does it tell you about Ramdas Gandhi?? Polite, superb control on his ego and just as Gandhiji would wish him to be...as Gandhi as Gandhi can be.

    You have not written much about Ramdas Gandhi, but all the other 3 sons have been well represented. I felt it important to contribute so as to fill in the gaps. In most commentaries, you will note, nothing substantial is ever written about Ramdas Gandhi...but that doesn't mean he did not live a substantial life.

    Just as a poser to you, do you think Time LIFE and Margaret Bourke White would not put the name of Sumitra Gandhi in the photo if they had known who she was? Probably, they did not know who this young lady was. Probably Sumitra Gandhi was never introduced to the photographer?

    Do try and put the relevant details from my above contributions.

    Anyhow, I am ever so grateful. Btw, where did you get the various photos from?

    1. While I do not dispute your recollection of the event, let me recall an event in a small town of Ramanagaram in 1962. Pandit Nehru made a brief stop when he was introduced to a local lady who spent her childhood in Allahabad while her father practiced as a junior. Pandit held both her hands against his forehead and fondly and respectfully remembered: "Oh! Shastri-ji! You are his daughter!!". So, may be it is not correct to impute motivations. At 73, his memory might have experienced its ups and downs.

  23. This is a goldmine of information about the family tree of the father of the nation...amazing efforts in putting this together...kudos to the commitment in making this so deep and broad :)
    I felt that if this information can be structured as a "Family tree" representation, it would become a more easier read and also might help in avoiding few redundancies...will most likely help the maintainability as well
    Great work!

  24. You are to be greatly commended for this labour of love and important historical contribution in tracking down pictures of almost everyone of Mahatma Gandhi's direct descendants.

    The British used to say, and it is unfortunately true in some ways, that especially Hindus have no sense of history. We just let the details slip away...

    From this site, it is easy to see that the contributions of Gandhiji's family is second to no other in all of India, all done modestly and without boasting, fanfare or chamchagiri.

    We salute this great Indian family.

  25. This is one family which has lived upto the reputation of the father of our nation. All doing their bit to the environment around them, without much fanfare and so called celebrity status. After all the bloodline is after all of our pitamaha na. Thanx for the amazing collection

    While Gandhi ji was a noble person, a saintly person, why are these Gandhis in the ruling party o f India defaming him -his name by their actions? Will this not be like defaming a saint, there won't be any harm to the saint but these people shall never be spared by the almighty.

  34. This is superb effort to chronicle the great man’s descendants. Thank you very much. It shows none of the Gandhi clan, NONE, clamoured for the fruits of his 'sacrifice' in a way that is so blatant these days by namesakes. And yet, all of them are highly accomplished individuals in their own rights without taking any doles or still worse fleecing the system.. Story about Nehru and Ramdas Gandhi shook me up from within.

  35. Great work, astounding. I feel so proud to be from the same country as the Mahatma, as though we own him, that I forgot that he has a huge family of his own. That is his greatness, he belonged to us.

  37. Monumental work. Hope some day I would bump into a descendant of the greatest soul. In fact Gandhi's family should be treated as the first family of India. But destiny thrust it on Nehru's. How about the idea of getting at least a dozen of them on to a platform and announce that here are the symbols of simplicity, here are people who are not at all ostentatious, never craved for publicity and never cared for government patronage.

  41. A rare and precious document- many thanks to the author, and the compilation. Mahatma Gandhi and Kasturba remain India's Father of the Nation and his wife, and following their descendants is emotional, informative. Gandhiji's great grandson, Pradeep Gandhi- Harilal Gandhi's grandson- though modernly attired, looks amazingly like his grand dad, Gandhiji ! And though there were supposed cracks in the sons' relationship with their father because of his constant engagement with the nation, today, the descendants must be so,so proud...
    I completely agree with a comment above that today's members of the First Family of India- Ganghiji's and Kasturba's- must be in some manner brought to the public domain...they being so Gandhi-like in their simplicity, and normalcy.
    I too would sure like to bump into a Gandhi sometime....and feel that surge of joy of beign with the great Mahatma's descendnt....

  46. Hello, very nicely complied and carefully collected information. Thank you very much for the efforts. May I know who is the person behind this and how did you compile all the information. May i also draw attention to a small mistake? the first photograph of Kasturba with four children: “Mahatma Gandhi Wife Kasturba Gandhi With Her Sons Harilal Gandhi, Manilal Gandhi, Ramdas Gandhi & Devdas Gandhi” In this photograph, Devdas Gandhi is not present. The youngest child sitting next to Kasturba is Gokuldas, Gandhiji's sister's son.
