Nation remembers Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shastri on their Birth Anniversary

A proud nation remembers father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi and former PM Lal Bahadur Shastri on their birth anniversary. October 2 is celebrated across India as Gandhi Jayanti. The United Nations has already adopted October 2 as the International Day of Non-Violence. Mahatma Gandhi, the apostle of peace and non-violence, has been a role model for billions of people worldwide.

All Indians celebrate the 140th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi with love and gratitude. Gandhi's principles of truth, non-violence and honesty are still remembered today and will remain so forever. Mahatma Gandhi was a leader of the masses. He is the best-ever leader any country has produced so far.

Former PM Lal Bahadur Shastri, who was a leader of farmers or kisans, always got less prominence because he was born on the same day on which Mahatma Gandhi was born. People remember October 2 as Gandhi Jayanti, but they often forget Lal Bahadur Shastri's birth anniversary and his achievements.

Shastri's contribution to India's growth and development was enormous. His slogan "Jai Jawan Jai Kisan" is still remembered by every Indian. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has decided to circulate new coins of Rs 5 to mark the birth centenary of former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri.
