On Lal Bahadur Shastri Jayanti 2023, we remember the birth anniversary of Lal Bahadur Shastri, the second Prime Minister of India. He was born on October 2, 1904, in Mughalsarai, Uttar Pradesh 1. Shastri Ji was a symbol of simplicity, integrity, and patriotism. He is remembered for his tireless dedication to the nation and his iconic slogan, “Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan,” which epitomizes his commitment to the welfare of both soldiers and farmers 2.
Shastri Ji’s leadership during the challenging times of the 1965 Indo-Pak war remains exemplary. His legacy continues to inspire generations to uphold the values of truth, sacrifice, and patriotism, making his Jayanti a day of reflection and homage to a true national hero 3.
On this day, let’s pledge to follow the path of truth and non-violence as Shastri Ji did. Let’s strive to be better citizens and contribute to the progress of our country. May the values and principles of Shastri Ji inspire us to work towards a better and more just society 2.
Happy Lal Bahadur Shastri Jayanti 2023!
