More on 2nd October

2nd October haapens to be the birthday of not just Mahatma Gandhi, but also of Shri Lal Bahadur Shashtri. While, there are many songs/poetries dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi, this particular song is unique in the sense that it is dedicate to both. Unfortunately I can not find the lyrics on the net and do not remember it myself either 😦 – So, just few lines I can recall –

आज है दो अक्तूबर का दिन आज का दिन है बड़ा महान्
आज के दिन दो फूल खिले जिनसे महका हिन्दुस्तान।
एक का नारा अमन एक का ‘जय जवान, जय किसान’।

Any help is completing at least the first four lines?

  1. The 3rd line is
    “Naam tha ek ka Bapu Gandhi, aur ek Lal Bahadur hai”
    Sung by Lata in the film Parivar, lyrics Gulshan Bawra, music Kalyanji Anandji

    BTW the Jagriti song is by Asha, not Lata. Lyrics Kavi Pradeep.
