If we Ask any person or any school going children, what is the existence of October 2nd in Indian history; probably they will not even think once and tell that it is Gandhi Jayanti (Birthday of Mahatama Gandhi).

We always celebrate 2nd October as Gandhi jayanti but so many people forgetting there's one more celebration on this day of our great leader and best Ex Prime minister Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri. I know most of the people don't know that his birthday also come on the same day because in our schools, colleges we were only told about Gandhi janyanti on 2nd October, even the television channels also telecasting movies on the eve of Gandhi Jayanthi, but I have hardly witnessed any type of coverage about Lal Bahadur Shastri or his birth anniversaryon any TV channels.

However, very few people know that it is the birth anniversary of Late Lal Bahadur Shastri as well; In a manner we should call this day as Gandhi jayanti as well as Shastri Jayanti. It is pitty that the people, who remember and celebrate Gandhi Jayanthi, forget that the same day is the birth day of our former prime Minister - a humble man.

Lal Bahadur Shrivastav Shastri was the second Prime Minister of the Republic of India and a significant figure in the Indian independence movement, who led India through the critical years after succeeding Nehru, who concerned about the common man of India and gave the slogan Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan. Lal Bahadur Shastri was the first person in India who received the Bharat Ratna award.

Let's not forget the people who have sacrificed for the nation, the one like Lal Bahadur Sastry. Its my humble request to all my Indian people please don't forget that man who devoted his whole life only to save our country, and for the nation. India is now an Independent country because we had such a great leaders like Lal Bahadur Shastri.

As we don't forget Children Day, Gandhi jayanti, and other events tell your children about this great leader.We must keep Lal Bahadur Shastri's birthday in ourmind whowas not less than these leaders in any manner. I appeal to all people for celebrating Gandhi jayanti as well as Shatri Jayantion 2nd October.

As a citizen of India I wish all the faithful readers of this mail A very Happy Gandhi Jayanthi, Lal Bahadur Shastris Jayanti and International day of Non Violence.
