Lal Bahadur Shastri Memorial

A Child of Destiny

A particular incident when Lal Bahadur was an infant is worth mentioning. When he was just a month old, he was carried by his mother to a Mela – a fair on the banks of the river Ganga. She was carrying the child in her arms when all of a sudden she was pushed by the surging crowd, and the infant Lal Bahadur fell out of her hands, instantly disappearing as if by magic in the flurry. Both parents were at a loss. They couldn’t find the baby anywhere. Both parents were distraught.
But was later recovered by his parents.
