A Musical Memorial – JAI JAWAN JAI KISAN – Remembering Lal Bahadur Shastri
On October 24th, 2015 Lorraine Music Academy and LAMP Trust came together to host “A Musical Memorial – Remembering Lal Bahadur Shastri” at the Epicentre Auditorium.
This event celebrated the 50th anniversary of the famous slogan “Jai Jawan Jai Kisan” that was coined by our 2nd Prime Minister and National Hero, Bharat Ratna Shri Lal Bhahadur Shastri.
The event also commemorated the 50th anniversary of India’s victory in the Indo-Pak war under his leadership and the signing of the peace treaty in Tashkent a few months later.

Workshops at the Musical Memorial
The musical memorial also included a short workshop that aimed to educate and encourage the audience to adhere to the Constitution of India and respect its ideals, institutions, the national flag and the national anthem.
The evening ended with the entire family members of Lal Bahadur Shastri coming on stage and singing, along with the entire audience, our National Anthem JANA GANA MANA with pride, passion, and precision – in 52 seconds.
The concert was able to successfully raise awareness, support as well as resources for the National Patriotic Project – “Come India Sing Jana Gana Mana” that encourages the proper singing of the National Anthem in the right way as per the code laid out by the Indian Constitution across education institutions and schools.
