The President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind graced and addressed the Birth centenary celebrations of Chaudhary Harmohan Singh Yadav in Kanpur today (November 24, 2021).
According to the President, Chaudhary Harmohan Singh Yadav’s life is worthy of emulation for posterity, as it has been described as exemplary. As an example of simplicity and an inspiration for public service, he served the public as a role model for all. I am sure that he tried his best to bring happiness to the lives of the people, especially those who lived on the margins of society and the farmers. From the Gram Sabha to the Rajya Sabha, his views about agriculture were heard very seriously by the policy makers.
The President said that the doors of Harmohan Singh Ji’s house were always open for all. In the year 1984, he set an excellent example of communal harmony when he saved many lives from a violent mob. In the year 1991, he received the Shaurya Chakra for his exceptional gallantry and fearlessness.
With Harmohan Singh Ji’s efforts, many educational institutions were set up to raise educational awareness in the country. He understood that education is the basis of the progress of every family and society. And education is the most effective tool to improve the lives of people and make society and country better, he used to say. The President recalled walking down memory lane.
The President said that Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav is being celebrated all over the country to mark 75 years of our independence. We will remember the contributions of unsung heroes of the freedom struggle who laid down their lives. Remembering freedom fighters Ajijan Bai, Mainavati, Jaidev Kapoor, Shiv Varma, Bijay Kumar Sinha and Dr. Gaya Prasad on the occasion, the President said that India could get independence due to the important contribution of many such freedom fighters. Therefore, it is the duty of all of us to bring information about the contribution of such anonymous freedom fighters to the public.
The President said that the future of any nation is guided by the experience of the past and enriched by its heritage. We all should actively take part in building a strong, successful, developed, and prosperous India. We should all work together for the progress of our country.
