Today is the birth anniversary of this Bharat RatnaHe lost his father at a very young age. His mother shifted to the home of his maternal grandfather. Even he died after some time. But the indomitable young boy never surrendered. He went on fighting the circumstances-he continued his education. He studied at Kashi Vidyapith and graduated with Philosophy in first class. He obtained the title ''Shastri'' after the Graduation, which remained with him throughout his life.
He joined politics at a very young age but he always liked to work behind the scene. His honesty is still well-known. As the Prime Minister of the country, he ordered Indian Army to cross the border. It was the first time since the reign of Maharaja Ranjit Singh when the Indian Army crossed the border in attacking role. His mental courage was proved to be legendary.
His personality impressed even his enemies. After his death, his body was carried by the President of Pakistan, who was deeply impressed by this feeble old man.
Let us pay our respect to this great man, Lal Bahadur Shastri, the second Prime Minister of India, who was awarded Bharat Ratna posthumously. Let us remember him on his birthday.
