Lal Bahadur Shastri died on 11 Jan 1966 in Uzbekistan just after signing the Tashkent Peace Agreement. After his death he was awarded the Bharat Ratna which is considered as the greatest honor given to an individual in our country. A Memorial was built at Vijay Ghat, New Delhi so that our future generations could respect and honor the great son of India.
