Rahul Gandhi made his first speech as Congress vice-president at the Chintan Shivir in Jaipur on Sunday.

He hit an emotional stride as he spoke about his grandmother Indira Gandhi's assassination, how he saw his father Rajiv Gandhi cry for the first time, and how his mother Sonia Gandhi had come to his room on Saturday night and wept.

Rahul promised deep, effective change as he spoke in both English and Hindi.
