Lal Bahadur Shastri

A creative word art of Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri on his birthday.

It’s Gandhi Jayanthi. I thought what can I do today? While all the so called Gandhians have long forgotten Gandhigiri, what can I do today? Yes, I can think of a great man who lived the policies of Gandhi and shares birthday with him. Yes, as we all know, it is none other than the second prime minister of Bharat (India), Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri or Shastriji.

Shastriji lead by example how to live for the country. People follow a man of actions. When Shastriji requested, entire nation gave up their one meal per day for several days, for the sake of country. His words, ‘Jai Jawan! Jai Kisan!’, inspires us even today!

The picture above is a quick word art of Shastriji made today. ‘LAL’ forms the Gandhi topi Shastriji used to wear. ‘b’ is in his forehead and right eye. ‘a’ is in the pupil of the right eye. ‘h’ shapes the nose. ‘a’ is in the left eye’s pupil. ‘d’ is in his left cheek. ‘u’ is in the left ear’s outline. ‘r’ outlines the right cheek. Word ‘Shastri’ is drawn in the form of his coat.

Yes, the lines are not so refined as it is drawn with my fingertip on the screen of ASUS ZenPad 8.0. But still I enjoy Adobe Photoshop Sketch without a stylus.
