October 2nd is Shastri Jayanti as well

shastri the simple man live by example

If I ask you, what is the existence of October 2nd in Indian history; probably you will not even think and tell that it is Gandhi Jayanti (Birthday of Mahatama Gandhi).

However, very few people know that it is the birth anniversary of Late Lal Bahadur Shastri as well, 3rd Primne Minister of India, one of the great freedom fighters, the great Indian Hero, who gave the slogan ‘Jai Jawaan, Jai Kisaan’.

Shashtri Jayanti

Isn’t it ironical, most of us are not aware of this fact, moreover I have hardly witnessed any type of coverage about Lal Bahadur Shastri or his birth anniversary in any newspaper or on any TV channels.

Here we have collected some links, which can help you know more about Lal Bahadur Shastri.

  1. Lal Bahadur Shastri @ Wikipedia
  2. A nice poem about Shastri ji.
  3. About Lal Bahadur Shastri  @ Manas
  4. Lal Bahadur Shastri Pictures, News and Articles @ DIGGSTARS
  5. A nice article about Shastri ji
  6. Why has history forgotten this giant?

So, go ahead read about Lal Bahadur Shastri, and do tell others about this forgotten National Hero.

Watch on

Ravi Shastri vs Nasser Hussain. India v England controversy 1.

India captain M S Dhoni might be fifth on the recent Forbes list of most valuable athlete brands, but he isn’t the one who gets the fattest BCCI pay cheque. Nor do any of his teammates. That honour belongs to former captains Sunil Gavaskar and Ravi Shastri, the highest-paid BCCI retainers.

With added bonus of about Rs 2 crore for their new roles — Shastri as Director Cricket and Gavaskar as head of IPL operations — the two will be getting around Rs 6 crore each annually. The two already had a Rs 4 crore per year contract as BCCI-endorsed commentators, which means they are on air for all of India’s international matches.

In contrast, Dhoni, in the last 12 months, has got Rs 2.59 crore for playing 35 international matches for India across all formats. That includes match fees as well as his Rs 1 crore retainer fee. Virat Kohli earned Rs 2.75 crore for playing 39 matches.

So Sunny Gavaskar and Ravi Shastri earn more than cricketers do. So? Why so surprised?

Tame pets are always more valuable, no?

2015 VIHE Bhakti Shastri Course
We are heartily inviting all serious students to this year’s VIHE Bhakti-sastri course. The Bhakti-sastri course is a systematic study of Srila Prabhupada’s books. Srila Prabhupada wanted all of us to deeply study his books, so that we could become better preachers and teachers, and, very importantly, achieve a clear understanding and application of the beautiful science of devotional service. Shri Vrindavan Dham mercifully provides a unique environment to enhance one’s taste and appreciation for the treasures of the direct path of bhakti.
