Shastri,Gandhi jayanti and a clean India !!

Happy Birthday to India's honest prime minister Shree Lal Bahadur Shastri n to the person credited with putting 'life' into Indian Independence movement - Shri Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi !!

Lal Bahadur Shastri took over as prime minister in 1964 , India was at a very crucial stage as Jawaharlal nehru n Krishna menon along with general BM kaul had totally ruined n virtually destroyed Indian army ,due to which China gave a crushing blow to India in 1962 !! Had he and d respected defence minister Yashvantrao Chavan not taken charge n not redeemed the Indian army ,navy n airforce ,India wud have suffered a similar fate at the hands of pakistan in 1965 !! He not only led India to a successful defense against Pakistan , but also when India faced food shortage throughout 1960s ,he asked people to observe fasts on Monday which he himself also did ,and started the green revolution in India !! Had he not been killed ,he wud have led India to far greater heights n achievement s in 1970s than wat India achieved !! His successful murder was d greatest misfortune of Free India !!

As far as Gandhiji is concerned , I am a lot anti-Gandhi ,as several of his stupid decisions n his stubbornness n adamant nature as India's top leader brought a lot of misery n ruin to India ,especially Hindus during n after partition !! But 1 cannot deny the fact that he united d country for d first time into a single struggle against d British !!

But it is utterly wrong to believe that freedom was won with his 'nonviolent' satyagrahas !! The three pillars of British rule in India - Indian Army ,Navy and Airforce were inspired into rebellion against Britain not by Gandhiji but by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and the Indian National Army created by him in d most difficult circumstances !! The 3 movements started by Gandhiji , Non-Co-operation ,Civil Disobedience as well as quit India all failed to achieve anything !! Non cooperation was ruined by gandhiji himself in 1922 over just 1 single incident, civil disobedience ended in 1934 and quit India movement too had faded by 1944 !! Had non co-operation n civil disobedience movements not been withdrawn ,India might have been free in 1920s ot by 1930s n gandhiji wud have rightfully got maximum credit for it !! Had it not been for Netaji , the triggers for the British to quit India -Royal Indian Navy mutiny of 1946,Airforce rebellion n massive public outrage against unfair trials to arrested Indian National Army cadres ,India would not have been free in 1947 !! 

Thus considering Gandhiji's contribution of uniting India into 1 movement and Lal Bahadur Shastri's contribution of fighting for freedom as well as leading Free India ,lets gift them a Clean India by not littering on streets n public places and not feeling ashamed of cleaning d areas outside our home !!

Those who feel Indians cant achieve cleanliness, have no knowledge of Ancient Indian history and heritage !! In ancient period ,Indian Cities were absolutely clean n tidy like western cities r today !! If we could achieve it then ,we can achieve it now as well !! What we require is d right leadership and right attitude for it !! While we have right leadership now,we need right attitude now !! Jai Hind
