श्री कलाम को मेरा सलाम

सुदृढ़ काया

हंसमुख वादन

औसत कद,

ललाट पर लहराती श्वेत केश की लटें

उसकी पहचान बनतीं,

अचक, अचंड, अछल, अडिग,

अटल अभिलाषा,

अदग, अथिर, अद्वैत, अद्भुत,

विलक्षण व्यक्तित्व – वह

रामेश्वरम् में जन्मा,

कभी इमली के बीजों को परचून की दुकान पर बेचता

तो कभी अख़बार बेचने में शम्सुद्दीन का मदद्गार बनता,

पिता की उदारता, माँ का आशीर्वाद लिये जाता

रामानंद, अरविन्दन, शिवप्रकाशन की सच्ची दोस्ती में पलता,

प्रो. सोलेमोन, स्पाईंडर, पनदलाई, नरसिंह से प्रभावित होता

जलालुद्दीन थे मार्गदर्शक

रामायण व कुरान का ज्ञाता

वह बालक,

देखो वह हिन्द-पुत्र

देश को गौरवान्वित करते हुये

जीवन की पगडंडी पर बढ़ता जा रहा है,

अवुल पाकिर जैनुलाबदीन अब्दुल कलाम –

हाँ, यही है वह नाम –

और उसकी पहचान,

पद्म भूषण

भारत रत्न

संकाश संग्रहीत,

नवीन ऊर्जा का संचार करते निर्मल आर्यपुत्रों को नत

नव नंदन उसके नयनाभिराम,

स्वच्छ, स्वादु, स्वजन, स्नेही,

स्वप्नद्रष्टा, स्रष्टा,

स्तब्ध स्पृहा, स्फुट, स्फुरित,

शरिष्ठ शख्सियत, वह

आई.एस.आर.ओ में ऊँचाईयाँ छूता

अग्नि, आकाश, पृथ्वी, त्रिशूल का दिया वरदान,

जिसके एस.एल.वी. ३ से रोहिणी ने भेद दिया आसमान

विक्रम साराभाई, प्रो. धवन, प्रो. ब्रह्मप्रकाश का रखा मान,

भारतीय वायुसेना में दिलाई राटो को पहचान

नंदी की सफलता पर देश ने दिया जिसको सम्मान,

देश की उभरती प्रतिभाओं का कद्रदान

वह देशभक्त!

देखो, वह कस्बे का बाल

आज महानतम वैज्ञानिक है,

व दूरदर्शिता से देश का नेतृत्व कर रहा है,

कृतज्ञ है माँ उस राष्ट्रपति की – बेटे की –

श्री अब्दुल कलाम –

को मेरा सलाम |
