How old were you when you learned that Lal Bahadur Shastri was also born on October 2nd? I must have been in class seven or eight and we had a social studies teacher who used to regale us with such tidbits. We loved his class period and teaching but this time half of us didn’t really believe him. The bell rang and we were still arguing about it among ourselves. I guess the people of India never meant to celebrate Shastri ji any less. It just happened that a more well-known and recognizable man had the same birthday. In IL, there are posts that stand out immediately like a Gandhiji image on a 1 5 10 20 50 100 or 500 rupee note. While some equally valuable ones are rarer and take some recognizing like a Shastri ji image on a commemorative 5 rupee coin. Let’s look for both kinds of posts and bring them to Finest Post nominations this month. .
