Rajiv Gandhi's Birth Anniversary: 10 Inspiring and Motivating Quotes from him

Sadbhavana Diwas

Sadbhavana Diwas

Every year, the birth anniversary of former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi is commemorated as 'Sadbhavana Diwas,' which literally translates to "Harmony Day." Rajiv Gandhi, who was born on August 20, 1944, was India's sixth Prime Minister and, at the age of 40, the youngest to hold the position. Rajiv Gandhi was elected Prime Minister after his mother, Indira Gandhi, was assassinated in 1984.

When India gained independence, Rajiv Gandhi was just three years old, and his grandpa, Jawaharlal Nehru, became Prime Minister. Rajiv Gandhi, the son of Feroz and Indira Gandhi, was assassinated in Sriperumbudur, near Chennai, on May 21, 1991, during a public rally. He was posthumously given the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian honour.

 

Here are the top 10 inspirational quotes by Rajiv Gandhi:

-“India is an old country, but young nation; and like the young everywhere we are impatient. I am young, and I too have a dream. I dream of an India strong, independent and self-reliant and in the front rank of the nations of the world in the service of mankind.’’

-“For some days, people thought that India was shaking. But there are always tremors when a great tree falls.”

-“Women are the social conscience of a country. They hold our societies together.”

-“Every person should take a lesson from history. We should understand that wherever there have been internal fights and conflicts in the country, the country has been weakened. Due to this, the danger from outside increases. The country has to pay a big price due to this type of weakness.”

-“Development is not about factories, dams and roads. Development is about people. The goal is material, cultural and spiritual fulfilment for the people. The human factor is of supreme value in development.”

-“Education must be a great equaliser in our society. It must be the tool to level the differences that our various social systems have created over the past thousands of years.”

-“Thinking of this University [Ambedkar University] today, we are reminded of Mahatma Gandhi because if there was anyone who fought for the weak in India, the first one to raise his voice for Scheduled Castes, that was Gandhiji. There were social workers before him but not any people who raised this matter in the political arena as he did.”

-“Our task today is to bring India to the threshold of the twenty-first century, free of burden of poverty, legacy of our colonial past, and capable of meeting the rising aspirations of our people.”

-“We must see that regional imbalances in the growth of various parties of the country are removed and all the states progress evenly. We shall ensure that all citizens of the country get full opportunity to contribute their might towards India’s progress.”

-“If farmers become weak the country loses self-reliance but if they are strong, freedom also becomes strong. If we do not maintain our progress in agriculture, poverty cannot be eliminated from India.But our biggest poverty alleviation programme is to improve the living standard of our farmers. The thrust of our poverty alleviation programmes is on the uplift of the farmers.”
