It has been 2 years since former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee left for heavenly abode. Since morning, tributes have been pouring in on social media for the veteran leader.
Vajpayee’s popularity was beyond political boundaries. Even his political opponents also had affection and respect for him.
Today on his 2nd death anniversary, we take a look at some of his inspiring quotes:
Poverty is multidimensional. It extends beyond money incomes to education, health care, political participation and advancement of one’s own culture and social organisation.
Mere Prabhu! Mujhe itni unchai kabhi mat dena, gairon ko gale na laga sakoon, itni rukhai kabhi mat dena (मेरे प्रभु! मुझे इतनी ऊँचाई कभी मत देना, गैरों को गले न लगा सकूँ, इतनी रुखाई कभी मत देना)
You can change friends but not neighbours.
Sarkarein aayengi, jayengi; partiyan banengi bigadengi Magar ye desh rehna chaiye (सरकारें आएंगी, जाएंगी, पार्टियां बनेंगी, बिगड़ेंगी मगर ये देश रहना चाहिए)
Our nuclear weapons are meant purely as a deterrent against nuclear adventure by an adversary.
