The Man of his Words - Atal Bihari Vajpayee

The former Prime Minister of India Respected Atal Bihari Vajpayee left the whole world in splits when he passed yesterday evening at 5:05. He was one of the greatest personality I had ever seen in my whole life. People love him for his simplicity and for his bold decision making quality. Whatever statements he had delivered in his long 40 years of political career, all of them were being applied in the real world.

Talking about his early life, he was born on 25 December 1924 in Gwalior. Though his hometown is in Madhya Pradesh, His ancestors were from the village Bateshwar which is in Uttar Pradesh. His grandfather, Pandit Shyam Lal Vajpayee, had migrated Morena, Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh.


Vajpayee did his schooling from Saraswati Shishu Mandir, Gwalior. His father Krishna Bihari Vajpayee was a school teacher in his hometown. Her mother, Krishna Devi was the mother of 7 children including him. The eagerness and willingness to do something for his country were started glistening from his early age.

He had lived his whole life as a bachelor but he had one child and nurtured her himself. He adopted the daughter of his longtime friend Rajkumari Kaul and BN Kaul. His daughter Namita Bhattacharya got married to the businessmen Ranjan Bhattacharya.

He was a kind of fun loving person. His hobbies were to appreciate Indian music, doing poetry, traveling, cooking and reading. His poetries are very alarming and give goosebumps to the reader. His way of expressing his thought on the paper was just amazing.

On his death, his family said that

"The void left by him in our life will be impossible to fill."

Not only in his family he has left whole nation grieved and left behind a void which can never be filled. I am really overwhelmed to say this that his ideology and bold personality has inspired millions and will keep on inspiring the coming generation.
