Justin Trudeau (Age 44) is the current and 23rd Prime Minister of Canada while Rahul Gandhi (Age 46) is the Vice-president of Indian National Congress. When you compare these two you find a lot of similarities yet, they’re both completely different Comparison Personalities.
Here’s a comparison between Rahul Gandhi Vs. Justin Trudeau current Prime Minister of Canada:
- Both of them are sons of former Prime Ministers of their respective countries (Pierre Trudeau and Rajiv Gandhi respectively).
- Both of them are almost the same age, Trudeau being born in December 1971 and Gandhi being born in June 1970.
- Both of them are well educated – Trudeau completed his B.A from McGill University in 1994, B.Ed from the University of British Columbia in 1998. He also studied engineering and then started a Master’s degree in Environmental Geography. Gandhi completed his undergraduate studies in St. Stephen’s College in Delhi in India and his M.Phil from Trinity College, Cambridge (Gandhi had to change schools/university several times due to security concerns).
- Both have experienced tragedies during their life. Trudeau lost his brother in an avalanche in 1998 and his father to prostate cancer 2000. Gandhi lost his father to a terrorist attack in 1991.
Despite all the above listed similarities, the following are some facts about Justin Trudeau, before becoming the Prime Minister of Canada.

Although I can’t say how Trudeau and his Cabinet will do in Canada as it is to soon to say. But when I start looking at my own country and have to compare him to Rahul Gandhi I’m embarrassed.
Being an Indian, you would know that Rahul Gandhi’s name is used more often for jokes rather than political discussions.
He was one step away from becoming the Prime Minister of India, and he doesn’t know anything about the country.
- He doesn’t know how to speak in public (always making negligent and careless mistakes).
- He sleeps during Parliament sessions.
- He can’t take his own decisions, and does whatever his mother tells him to do.
- He cannot answer questions in an interview (remember his interview with Arnab Goswami during elections?)
Just because a guy is in the family of politicians, he is ought to be a National Leader, irrespective of his abilities and skills.
Justin Trudeau and Rahul Gandhi, both are National Leaders in their countries and have so many similarities, yet one is working towards making his country better while the other is still in his mom’s lap.
