Privileged to be with HH Dalai Lama at IIC at the Launch of the book – Lal Bahadur Shastri : Lessons in Leadership. Book By Sh Anil Shastri ( Son of Sh L B Shastri) and Pawan Chaoudhary.
Dalai Lama, a scholar and such a learned man is truly simplicity and compassion personified. In spite of security and many people around, he reached out to many people and met them personally.
What touched me most was the child like curiosity with which he approached everyone, demonstrating true interest in them. He shared many jokes, mostly on himself, on many occasions he burst into child like laughter.
Remembering Sh Lal Bahadur Shastri- He said – “What a contrast – His body and his Mind ” and he burst out laughing.
Another occasion he mentioned that he does not read too many books. He said- “if I comes across a new English word, I feel lazy to open a dictionary and checking it out..” and what followed was laughter of a naughty child.
The inner satisfaction and peace was truly visible ! May he live long and continue to bless us all.
