His Married Life and Family

On 16th may 1928, at the age of 23, Lal Bahadur Shastri got married to Lalita Devi, who was then 17 year old. In dowry, Shastriji accepted only a Charkha and a few yards of khadi from his in-laws. After marriage, the Shastri couple shifted to Allahabad and had six children – two elder daughters, Kusum and Suman; and four sons, Hari Krishna Shastri, Anil Shastri, Sunil Shastri, and Ashok Shastri.
