The NCERT has taken this move with an aim to instil respect for the great leader in the minds of young children and to immortalize his work for the years to come.

The poem is titled 'Kadam Milakar Chalna Hoga,' and has been introduced in the Hindi textbook Vasant for the students of 8th Class. The poem can be translated as 'We have to Walk Together' and talks about how all the people of our country need to stand strong and be united in the face of any difficulty.

It urges the countrymen to 'walk together' irrespective of difficulties they face in life and teaches them how this is the only way to secure a better tomorrow for our nation.

The Vasant textbook also contains poems, short stories, and essays by other renowned writers like Ramdhari Singh Dinkar, Hazari Prasad Dwivedi, Suryakant Tripathi 'Nirala,' Harishankar Parsai and Ismat Chughtai. This inclusion will be released in the new books by March, for the next session. It is not clear whether any previous material has been changed or altered to accommodate this new poem.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee had passed away on 16th August 2018 and ever since the government has been naming certain schemes and the like after him to commemorate his name and the great personality he was.

In keeping with this, the HRD ministry had asked NCERT to introduce something from his life and years as a prime minister even for the younger children in schools. Up till now, the leader was only mentioned in the Political Science Textbook of Class 12th. Checkout political science class 12 NCERT solutions for preparation.
