A man of infinite capability
His aspirational ability
Inspiring us everywhere
His dream in conception singular
Of raising India to heights unknown,
And making her the “knowledge superpower”,
An action path he had shown..
Hermit-like living in the personal domain
And lofty ambitions for the nation
He will in our collective conscience remain
For being the brightest inspiration.
From humble beginnings he rose
To occupy the highest position
Despite his power, he still chose
His country over personal ambition.
Ignited the spirits and minds
Of countless directionless youth
He was truly one of his kind
That is the immutable truth..
He spent his life serving the nation
His death was not an exception
He was in the midst of an oration
When death snatched him by deception..
