Atal Bihari Vajpayee was not only a seasoned politician but also a poet, a man of letters, and a visionary. His speeches, marked by eloquence and wit, left an indelible impact on the hearts and minds of the people. Vajpayee’s famous words, “Kadam Milakar Chalna Hoga,” which translates to “We must walk together,” resonate with the ethos of unity and diversity that India represents.
