Remembering 3 great heroes of India - 2nd October
Today (2nd October), the whole nation is celebrating the Mahatma Gandhi's birth day. Mahatma's achievements and his philosophies are remembered.
Unfortunately, the media has also forgot to remember two other great leaders of India. They are (1) Lal Bahadur Shastri and (2) K Kamaraj.
Lal Bahadur Shastri
Lal Bahadur Shastri (Born 2nd October 1904) was the 2nd Prime Minister of India during 1964-66. During his time, in 1965, Pakistan waged war against India. He boldly faced the situation and won the war. The war ended with Tashkant Declaration signed by the PMs of both the countries. On the same night, Shastri, was declared dead due to heart attack. Still the mystery of his death remains unresolved. He passed away on 11th Jan 1966.
His slogan 'Jai Jawan' Jai Kisan' is still popular and relevant. He gave equal importance to both jawans and kisans. He was leading a very simple life.
2nd October is the death day of Shri K Kamaraj, who was the President of Indian National Congress. His Chief Ministership of Tamil Nadu is still considered as the 'Golden period'. For the first time in India, he provided free education and free food to the poor people and encouraged education in 1950s. (He studied only upto 3rd standard, but he gave importance to education).
He brought a popular plan known as 'K Plan' to encourage youngsters to assume power. He suggested the seniors to work for the party and youngsters to hold office in the Government. Accordingly, he himself resigned as the Chief Minister and undertook party work.
He is also known as the 'King Maker'. When there was a confusion after the death of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, he made Lal Bahadur Shastri as the PM. Again, after the death of Shastri, he made Indira Gandhi as the PM. He passed away on 2nd October 1975.
Let us remember the three great heroes of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi, Lal Bahadur Shastri and Kamaraj.
