जब लालबहादुर शास्त्री देश के प्रधानमंत्री थे तब वह एक बार कपड़े की दुकान में साड़ियां खरीदने गए। दुकान मालिक शास्त्री जी को देखकर बहुत खुश हुआ। शास्त्री जी ने दुकानदार से कहा कि वे जल्दी में हैं और उन्हें चार-पांच साड़ियां चाहिए।
When Lal Bahadur Shastri was the Prime Minister of the country, he once went to buy saris in the clothes shop. The shop owner was very pleased to see Shastri ji. Shastri told the shopkeeper that he is in a hurry and he needs four to five saris.
The shop manager started showing Shastri ji a saris more than one. There were all precious saris. Shastriji said, brother, I do not want such expensive sarees. Show low price
On this the manager said – Sir, consider them to be your own, there is no question of price. It’s a good luck to all of us that you fall.
Shastri understood her intentions. He said – you have to take the price of saris. Pay attention to what I am saying to you and show me low cost saris and tell them their price. Then the manager started showing Shastriji a bit cheap saris.
Shastri ji said – These are also expensive for me. Show less and price. The manager was hesitant to show the cheapest sarees. Shastri ji knew this. They said, show the cheapest sarees in the shop. I need the same
After all, the manager took out his man-made sarees. Shastri chose some of them and paid the price. After his departure, the shop staff and some of the guests present there talked about the simplicity of Shastriji. They were filled with reverence for them
