If I ask you, what is the existence of October 2nd in Indian history; probably you will not even think and tell that it is Gandhi Jayanti (Birthday of Mahatama Gandhi).
However, very few people know that it is the birth anniversary of Late Lal Bahadur Shastri as well, 3rd Prime Minister of India, one of the great freedom fighters, the great Indian Hero, who gave the slogan ‘Jai Jawaan, Jai Kisaan’.
Isn’t it ironical, most of us are not aware of this fact, moreover I have hardly witnessed any type of coverage about Lal Bahadur Shastri or his birth anniversary in any newspaper or on any TV channels.
Here we have collected some links, which can help you know more about Lal Bahadur Shastri.
