New Delhi: Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, an orator par-excellence, a meaningful politician and one of the most prominent leaders of the BJP, passes away at AIIMS hospital in New Delhi at the age of 93. Vajpayee was in critical condition and was put on life support system.
Here's a look at some of the quotes by Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who was a poet by heart:
1. "Truth cannot be hidden for fear that somebody would exploit it"
2. "You can change friends but not neighbours"
3. "Maut ki umra kya hai? Do pal bhi nahi, zaindagi silsila, aaj kal ki nahi"
4. "Swayam ko doosron ki drishti se main dekh paataa hoon, na main chup hoon na gaataa hoon"
5. "Mere Prabhu! Mujhe itani oonchaai kabhi mat dena, Gairon ko gale na lagaa sakoon, Itani rukhaai kabhi mat dena"
6." Kyon na main kshan kshan ko jioon? Kan-kan mein bikhare saundarya ko pioon?"
7. "Hone, na hone ka kram, Isi tarah chalta rahega, Hum hain, hum rahenge, Yeh bhram bhi sadaa paltaa rahega"
8. "Haar nahi manunga, raar nahi thanunga"
