Kejriwal’s workplace may now be Delhi, but he was born and brought up in Haryana. Arvind Kejriwal was born on 16 August 1968 at ‘Sewani Mandi’ in the ‘Hisar’’ district of Haryana state.
That auspicious day was ‘Janmashtami’ and the joy of the birth of a son on this auspicious day was celebrated in Arvind’a house. Arvind was called Krishna at home.
Arvind Kejriwal’s grandfather ‘Mangalchand’ had settled in ‘Kheda’ village that is 4 km away from ‘Sewani Mandi’, before 1947.
At that time ‘Mangalchand’ set up a ‘dal mill’ there. They had five sons. Arvind’s father Govindaram, Murarilal, Radheshyam, Girdhari Lal and Shyamlal.
Govindaram worked in Jindal Udyog and then worked in many cities outside Haryana. Govindaram is married to Geeta Devi. The eldest son Arvind Kejriwal was born on the day Janmashtami. Arvind is the eldest of three siblings.
Kejriwal’s grandfather Mangalchand was also well known in his time as a rash politician. In that time, Bansi Lal used to dominate Haryana. Mangalchand was also the biggest contributor to Bansi Lal’s defeat in the 1977 Lok Sabha elections from Bhiwani parliamentary constituency.
Arvind Kejriwal’s uncle Girdhari Lal told that Kejriwal’s grandfather Mangalchand took up the front against Bansi Lal and pitched the election campaign office of ‘Chandravati’ in his shop and sought door-to-door votes for ‘Chandravati’. There is an atmosphere of happiness at Sevani’s Lal Arvind Kejriwal’s ancestral home. As soon as the counting of votes began, Arvind Kejriwal’s uncle Girdhari Lal Kejriwal, aunt and cousin were stuck on the TV screen. As the results started coming in Kejriwal’s favor, the faces of the family also started glowing with joy.
Significantly, Delhi’s CM Arvind Kejriwal is originally a resident of ‘Sewani’, a sub-division of ‘Bhiwani district’. Kejriwal’s uncle Girdhari Lal said that Arvind Kejriwal got the reward of work in Delhi. Arvind has done a very good job in education, health, and electricity, water, etc. in Delhi. Therefore he has been won by the people of Delhi for the third time in a row. He told that he would go to Delhi along with the whole family to attend Kejriwal’s swearing-in ceremony.
