As the Book title defines " Lal Bahadur Shastri - Lessons in Leadership ". How he dealt with situations as a family man especially with his son !!

One thing I have learned from this book. It's better to keep our " adversary under our limbs " rather than kept far away. He shows his simplicity when it comes to attire.

I like his composure
