Sister's prediction comes true
As a young MP, Pranab Mukherjee told his sister that he wanted to be born a well-bred horse in Rashtrapati Bhavan in his next incarnation. “Why become a rashtrapati’s horse, you will in this life become a rashtrapati (president),” responded Annapoorna Devi.
The woman, 10 years older to the 76-year-old UPA presidential candidate, recalled this in an interview to CNN-IBN television.
She was conversing with Pranab Mukherjee when he had just become an MP. The two were seated on the verandah of his official quarters in New Delhi, sipping tea.
“We could see the caretaker of the horses, grooming the animals, feeding them, giving them water.
The sister is happy that her prediction has come true. But she is upset she can’t go to Delhi to attend his swearing in because of her age.
“I am very happy, I can’t explain how happy I am,” she said.
