Lal Bahadur Shastri Residence

While living in Nanihal, he took primary education. After that education took place at Harishchandra High School and Kashi Vidyapeeth. As soon as he got the title of Shastri from Kashi Vidyapeeth, Shastri ji removed the caste word Srivastava from birth along with Anpe name and put Shastri in front of his name.

Lal Bahadur Shastri Slogans

After this the word ‘Shastri’ became synonymous with the name of ‘Lal Bahadur’. Later in the day, Lal Bahadur Shastri gave the slogan “Don’t die, kill” which sparked a revolution in the whole country. Another slogan given by him ‘Jai Jawan-Jai Kisan’ is still on the tongue of the people.

Lal Bahadur Shastri AND Mahatma Gandhi

Lal Bahadur, an activist of the non-cooperation movement launched by Mahatma Gandhi against the British government in India, was imprisoned for a short time (1921). Upon his release he studied at Kashi Vidyapeeth (now Mahatma Gandhi Kashi Vidyapeeth), a nationalist university and earned the title of post-graduate Shastri (scholar of scriptures). After receiving education up to graduation level in Sanskrit language, he joined the Bharat Sevak Sangh and started his political career from here, taking a vow of service to the country.

Shastriji was a true Gandhian who spent his whole life in simplicity and devoted it to the service of the poor. He was an active participant in all the important programs and movements of the Indian freedom struggle and as a result he had to stay in jails many times. Among the movements in which he played an important role in the freedom struggle, the Non-Cooperation Movement of 1921, the Dandi March of 1930 and the Quit India Movement of 1942 are notable.

Apart from Purushottamdas Tandon and Pandit Govind Ballabh Pant, Shastriji’s political mentors included Jawaharlal Nehru. After first coming to Allahabad in 1929, he started working with Tandonji as the secretary of the Allahabad unit of Bharat Sevak Sangh.

It was while in Allahabad that his closeness with Nehru grew. After this, Shastriji’s stature continued to grow and climbing the ladder of success one after the other, he reached the prime position of Home Minister in Nehru’s cabinet.

He gained a reputation as a skilled mediator after his appointment to the influential post of Home Minister in 1961. Three years later, when Jawaharlal Nehru fell ill, he was appointed a minister without any portfolio, and after Nehru’s death in June 1964, he became the Prime Minister of India.

He had said in his first press conference that his first priority was to prevent the food prices from rising and he was successful in doing so. His activities were completely practical and in line with the needs of the people, not theoretical. If seen objectively, Shastriji’s reign was very difficult.

Shastri was also criticized for not dealing effectively with India’s economic problems, but he was highly praised for the tenacity shown by him in the 1965 war with neighboring Pakistan over the disputed province of Jammu and Kashmir.

Lal Bahadur Shastri Death

He died in Tashkent after signing the agreement of the Tashkent Declaration not to go to war with the President of Pakistan, Ayub Khan. Even today whole India remembers Shastriji for his simplicity, patriotism and honesty. He was also awarded the Bharat Ratna posthumously in the year 1966.
