A Grand Salute!

Your passing away has bereaved ‘Bharat Ma’ of her outstanding son. Guruji, your sad and sudden demise Has drowned the nation in fathomless pain. A lover of youth You motivated them to rise above themselves. You never tired out with their queries In fact, you loved them all the more […]

Silver Lining

The silver- lining disappeared last night As I sat and watched outside the window The bars trembled I was surprised How could iron be that poor? Everything you buy outside Is no longer good to bite For you never know what there is inside! The green dotted stuff they say […]

A Tribute to Rocco

As a baby you came to a house Soon a home it became for you. You were so very sweet and loving That people were drawn to you. Your twinkling shining eyes spoke a world about you! You scampered all over the house With everyone running after you, but- You […]
