Stamp Information : Morarji Ranchhodji Desai was born on February 29 1896 at Bhadeli, a little village near Bulsar in Gujarat to Ranchhodji Desai and Vajiaben. His father was a teacher in the Bhavnagar State in Saurashtra. Beginning his education in a humble manner at the village school, he went on after matriculation to graduate from Wilson College, Bombay, in 1912. A religious and stringent background inculcated in him the habits of self-discipline and thrift. It is not surprising therefore that he grew up to become a practicing Gandhian and as the fourth Prime Minister of India, it was in character with him to say that, "I seek neighter popularity nor unpopularity. I am all for discipline". Morarji Desai was the second Prime Minister of India to rise from very humble origins, the first being Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri. his brief period of Prime Ministership ended on July 28, 1978 when he stepped down.
