Like every daughter Priyanka's affection for her father can be noticed from her recent tweet that she tweeted this morning. Priyanka's husband Robert Vadra was also present with the Gandhi family and also paid obeisance.

Priyanka's tweet expresses her attachment with her father. She tweeted "You will always be my hero," followed with a Harivansh Rai Bachchan's famous Hindi poetry named "Agnipath".

The hindi lines of the peom are.....

"Vriksh hon bhale khade,

Hon ghane, hoh bade,

Ek patra chhah bhi

Maang mat! Maang mat! Maang mat!

Agneepath! Agneepath! Agneepath! "

In English it means..... "Even if there are mighty trees all around you,

Let them be shady, let them be huge,

But, even for the shade of a single leaf,

Beg not, beg never, ask never!

The path of fire you shall tread! The path of fire! Yes, That Path of Fire!"

It is an inspirational poem and dedicated to those whose life is a tough struggle all the way, but whose resolve is superhuman.

Priyanka has separate personal and political reactions on pardon for Rajiv case convicts. Earlier, in her reaction the Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra told to a national newspaper while referring to a possible amnesty for the seven persons convicted in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.
