The Saintly Scientist – a Tribute To Dr A P J Abdul Kalam

The Saintly Scientist    a Tribute To Dr A P J Abdul Kalam prose poem

Uploaded by Dr.Indu Nautiyal

Gifting his ‘ Wings of Fire ‘
to the gen. next
The angel has taken flight
to regions unknown .
Standing tall in the midst of admiring youths
Kindling their minds with the light of knowledge
Inspiring them to dream big
and toil tirelessly to achieve their goals .
They were listening to you with rapt attention as you were to them
a living legend
an epitome of accomplishments .
AND ALL OF A SUDDEN
THAT UNFORTUNATE FALL !
Alas ! you left so abruptly
leaving the nation shocked
at the mammoth loss .
Wonder if you were called back
to take up another project there
or did you yourself need some leisure
to set a new tune
on your favourite Veena ?
Simplicity ,wisdom and genius personified !
Words fall short to embody
your life and work ,Dr Kalam !
Never did you take a day off to rest
work was to you as religion supreme
and pursuit of knowledge your way of worship .
And this you proved till the very end .
May you rest in peace now
and live eternally
in your blessed name !

I have been a teacher for about four decades ,but even more than that , a student and learner all along --literature being my favourite subject with special love for poetry , a trait I seem to have inherited from my father,who was a very good poet ,it was he that instilled in me a deep love for poetry early in childhood . Starting as a science student ,I shifted to literature after graduation and and worked on Emily Dickinson's poetry for Doctoral degree. I don't claim to be a poet ,but do admit my inherent love for poetic utterances as and when I find them and sometimes feel inspired to give vent to my own emotions in words that seem to convey them .Honestly it happens quite effortlessly and also leaves me with an immense satisfaction .If it can be termed poetry ,all the more rewarding. .
