Today is the birthday of one of the great Prime Ministers of India, Late Sh. Lal Bahadur Shashtri. A thread on this great person especially for those who do not know much about this 'little' great man.
Lal Bahadur was born in the year 1904 in Mughalsarai, United Provinces, British India as Lal Bahadur Srivastava. His father Sharada Prasad was a poor school teacher, who later became a clerk in the Revenue Office at Allahabad.
When Lal Bahadur was three months old, he slipped out of his mother's arms into a cowherd's basket at the ghats of the Ganges. The cowherd, who had no children, took the child as a gift from God and took him home.

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.

९ जून १९६४, स्वतंत्र भारत को बड़े भाग्य से देश को एक लाल मिला, द्वितीय प्रधान मंत्री के रूप म, जिसका नाम था लाल बहादुर शास्त्री!
११ जनवरी १९९६, को वह प्रधान मंत्री की कुर्सी ही क्या, दुनिया छोड़ गया.. क्यूँ और कैसे??
क्षमा कीजिए, *११ जनवरी १९६६🙏🏻

Two weeks apart, 2 unnatural deaths happened outside India, #LalBahadurShastri & Dr. #HomiBhabha in January 1966??

Who was responsible, who would benifit from their death, who became 🇮🇳’s PM after Shastri ji?

#IndiraGandhi of #CongressFraudParty ?

Remembering the 2nd PM of India #LalBahadurShashtri on his Punya Thithi today. Short in build, a giant in stature, a man who handled one of the biggest crisis India faced after 1947 tactfully and gave a fitting reply to Pakistan in the '65 War.
After Nehru , who?” was the question on every one’s lips in 1964, and then the choice fell on #LalBahadurShashtri . At first glance he never seemed like a likely leader, with his unassuming build and soft spoken nature, nor did he ever aspire for power.
#LalBahadurShastri had a formidable task on hand, he had to lead a nation, that was coming to terms with the humiliating rout to China in 1962, a new nation that was facing the issues of poverty, inflation, and more than anything he had to live up to the legacy of Nehru.

"Force will be met with force"!

“CIA killed both,Shastri & Dr. Homi Bhabha in 1966 Jan”.
-Robert Crowley. CIA-Director of plans, an interview with Gregory Douglas who was asked to publish it Only after his Death!…
Could Crowley’s claim be a fabricated one?
*Just two weeks apart,these 2 unnatural deaths occurred outside India!
* #LalBahadurShashtri had defeated US ally🇵🇰,had refused to shut down India's nuclear program!
*His being in the USSR provided CIA an opportunity to poison him?
*The most powerful agency in the🌍 in 60s,CIA used to routinely assassinate unfriendly foreign leaders!
* An ally of🇮🇳,would the Russians kill #LalBahadurShastri ?
*A political nobody, Indira Gandhi became the PM!
*Could then,the assassination
not be authorized by US President?
