Influence of Gandhi’s on Lal Bahadur Shastri Ji

Nanhe had great respect for Gandhi. He had heard a lot about his struggle against English for their misbehaviour with Africans and Indians. Tilak’s ‘freedom is my birth right’ and personalities of other freedom fighters including Rabindra Nath Thakur moved Lal Bahadur like anything.


Saw Gandhi for the first time

In 1919 he saw Gandhi for the first time when Gandhi visited BHU and appealed to all Indian Kings and Courts to come out and wholeheartedly support freedom movement. When a student of 10th standard, Nanhe left everything and joined freedom movement. Patriotic teacher Nishkameshwar Misha and BeniPrased left deep impressions on the psyche and personality of Lal Bahadur.

Seeing his tender age, Police left Lal Bahadur after reprimanding and threatening him. Well-wishes and relations also advised Lal Bahadur to complete his study first and support his family.

In 1930 Shastriji went jail for the first time for participating in
'Salt Agitation'. He went jail for 8 times and spent 9 years in Jail.
