Never in the history of India has there been a prime minister who could write poetry. Atal Bihari Vajpayee, our quintessential wise old man is the single politician of this nation who has given us a character clean as a slate but a life full of poignant and beautiful words. He was the prime minister who dared to do the nuclear testing in Pokharan and at the same time could write “geet naya gaata hoon”. He walked bare chested on the Kargil land when our soldiers were dying and at night he wrote “Kya khoya kya paya jag mein”. He is a true gentleman in the lands of wolves and jackals. He is the man who tells us about “samvedna (feelings)” when everyone is thinking about money. Over the years he has given us some wonderful quotes which every politician and every true Indian should be proud of. He was a great wordsmith and here are some of the best Atal Bihari Vajpayee Quotes.
