Sardar Swaran Singh who was born a farming family in the village of Shankar in the Jallandhar District of the state of Punjab on August 19,1907 could be very well said as a great politician of our nation. He was married in 1925 to Charan... Kaur and had four daughters. He had entered politics in 1946, when he was elected a member of the Punjab legislative assembly. He was truly a noble man with high thinking of our Political scenario of our country. He had distinction of serving our country in the post-independence era as cabinet minister for the longest period than any one else. He had entered the cabinet of our country’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, in 1952, and was that government's last surviving member in Nehru’s cabinet and in successive governments until he resigned in November 1975.He had served as India's Foreign Minister from 1964 to 1966, and again from 1970 to 1974.
