Motivational Hindi Poetry About Lal Bahadur Shastri लाल बहादुर शास्त्री

पैदा हुआ उसी दिन,
जिस दिन बापू ने था जन्म लिया।
भारत-पाक युद्ध में जिसने
तोड़ दिया दुनिया का भ्रम॥

Lal Bahadur Shastriएक रहा है भारत सब दिन,
सदा रहेगा एक।
युगों-युगों से रहे हैं इसमें
भाषा-भाव अनेक॥

आस्था और विश्वास अनेकों,
होते हैं मानव के।
लेकिन मानवता मानव की
रही सदा ही नेक॥

कद से छोटा था लेकिन था
कर्म से बड़ा महान।
हो सकता है कौन, गुनो वह
संस्कृति की संतान॥

∼ कमला प्रसाद चौरसिया

Lal Bahadur Shastri was the third (second, and acting, being Gulzarilal Nanda) Prime Minister of Independent India and a significant figure in the Indian independence movement.

Shastri worked by his natural characteristics to obtain compromises between opposing viewpoints, but in his short tenure was ineffectual in dealing with the economic crisis and food shortage in the nation. However, he commanded a great deal of respect in the Indian populace, and he used it to advantage in pushing the Green Revolution in India; which directly led to India becoming a food-surplus nation, although he did not live to see it. During the 22-day war with Pakistan, Lal Bahadur Shastri created the slogan of “Jai Jawan Jai Kisan” (“Hail the soldier, Hail the farmer”), underlining the need to boost India’s food production. Apart from emphasizing the Green Revolution, he was instrumental in promoting the White Revolution. Greatly impressed by a visit to the Kaira district in October 1964, he urged the rest of the country to learn from the successful experiment at Anand. The National Dairy Development Board was formed in 1965 during his tenure as Prime Minister.

Though he was Socialist, Shastri stated that India cannot have a regimented type of economy. During his tenure as Prime Minister, he visited Russia, Yugoslavia, England, Canada and Burma in 1965.
