Unity In Diversity : Sardar Patel’s 144th Birth Anniversary Today


- Advertisment - Copy code snippet

Today, India celebrated 144th birth anniversary of the Iron man of India, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel who united the broken riyasats of India. This day is celebrated as Rashtriya Ekta Divas.

Patel, the ‘Iron Man of India’, who had dreamt of full integration of Jammu and Kashmir with India, played an instrumental role in convincing several princely states to align with the Indian Union. Therefore, 31st October is celebrated to honour his efforts and contributions.

But why he is known as Iron man of India? Threatening military force, Patel persuaded almost every princely state to accede to India. His commitment to national integration in the newly independent country was total and uncompromising, earning him the sobriquet “Iron man of India”.
