While we celebrate Oct 2 as #GandhiJayanti today is also the Jayanti of #LalBahadurShastri one of the finest PMs of India, who led it with distinction during a period of grave crisis, and whose small height belied his steel frame. #JaiJawanJaiKisan
For decades #LalBahadurShastri was in the background, with few even aware of his contribution. It did not help that in an academia dotted with historians who could not see beyond Gandhi and Nehru, he never got due acknowledgment either.
Yet this was the man who restored hope to a nation, leading it to victory in the 1965 war against Pakistan. That rather unassuming build and soft voice, marked a fiercely strong spirt, that refused to buckle in the face of adversity.
