Indira Gandhi was known as one of the strongest Prime Minister of India. We know almost everything about her life. One thing which we don’t know much is about her marriage with Feroze Gandhi. We found something interesting about this on Wikipedia:

Feroze first proposed to Indira in 1933, but she and her mother rejected it, putting forward that she was too young, only 16. He grew close to the Nehru family, especially to Indira’s mother Kamala Nehru.

In the following years, Indira and Feroze grew closer to each other while in England. They married in March 1942 according to Hindu rituals.

Indira’s father Jawaharlal Nehru opposed her marriage and approached Mahatma Gandhi to dissuade the young couple, but to no avail.
