Tribute To A Philanthropist

Tribute To A Philanthropist long poem

Photo by familymwr

Though by birth born in a caste
predominantly of business class
where Goddess Lakshmi loves to reside,
He grew up in the company of sacred caste
predominantly of learned class
where Goddess Saraswathi would settle

Right from his tender age his tongue rhymed
sacred slokas and his vocabulary of words
as fluent as like a flowing river

He turned out to be proficient in many languages
especially English and Kannada and he is a delight to
the listeners who are struck up by his fluency of chain of words
emitting deep philosophical attributes

He is a person who sees life in greenery and a Marvin
who can make any sacrifices to maintain environmental
balance for the betterment of man kind

His charitable attitude is to say the least beyond imagination
He aspires not for wealth but for health of fellow human beings
He spends lacks of his own money to maintain the ecological balance
and make common man enjoy the fragrance of green and clean environment

His humble attitude stems from the fact that though rich in wealth
he treats wealth as secondary and service to society as primary issue

His ever smiling face,soft and tender voice floors every body around
his encouragements to art and culture speaks volumes of his class

His contribution in the field of Education for school children as being
chairman cum founder of a prestigious international school is commendable

He is a karma yogi who never aspires for recognition but desires
for every bodies up gradation

His contribution to the creation and development of Flower park in
Sadashivnagar is immense and is a testimony to his commitment
to wards maintaining ecological balance.

His motto is to serve the society and not to seek favour from society

Though the power in be is creating hurdles in his noble cause he is least perplexed
and goes on in his mission with devotion and commitment to cleans the society

I bow my head in all humility to that wonderful human being named SRINIVAS RAJU
the chairman of Nav chetan trust and a resident of Sadashiv nagar but more a resident in the hearts
of every person of his contact
